    Bad people, evil people, gain more wealth than honest people.
    Evil people live good lives, honest and hard working people earn very less and live poor lives.

    This world is not fair, why have we (Christians) to become good people?
    What's the reward?
    Sometimes, and always, you will feel that it is stupid to be good! :scratch:

    My foot had nigh well slipped for I had been envious of the wicked.
    Why does the wicked get much wealth and have it easy etc
    TILL I went into the TABERNACLE OF GOD AND I SAW THEIR END
    YES LORD YOU HAVE SET THEM IN SLIPPERY PLACES.
    Go read some good psalms.
    The wicked are full of deceit , therefor they wax RICH
    Ever remember JESUS saying seek not these things, Be CONTENT
    IF We were given what we fairly deserve and earn..........we would all GO TO HELL.
    I would rather ponder of the riches IN CHRIST and be overflowing with pure peace and joy.

    Look not to the world for answers.

    Seek Jesus who is Truth.

    Who spoke of these things two thousand years ago.

    Mark 8:36

    For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

    Look at how it treated the ONE who had created it.
    We are not above our master, the world hated him , it will us too.
    But I say rejoice in the LORD.
    Really though we should deeply ponder that.
    The one who created it, became flesh
    was treated like he had a demon, was cast out , beaten , scourged
    and yet Endured all contradictions of sinners against himself.
    Imagine that . I mean heck I did not create the world
    all I ever did was wicked , vile and just upmost vulgar.
    Yet my creator endured all, so this wicked vile thing could be saved.
    ME............that is what I REJOICE IN . ANd HE is all I need.
    if I lose everything , man I have lost nothing.............HE is the all and all
    and the hope and joy of my heart.
    Why desire the riches which fade, which corrupt the heart of the one who seeks them.
    WHy not just rejoice in the true riches which is Christ , the riches that do profit a man
    Leap up peoples and sing , WE have hope and we have the victory , for we have Christ .
    And though hand join in hand against me..............I fear not man, nor what comes
    against me ........I have all hope for I have Christ and I do rejoice in his salvation.

    Because in this world, you got to have gifts and talents that can easily corrupt you with pride to get head. Because you have to play dirty to get ahead because those who play by the rules are easier to beat. Because life in this world is a never ending competition on who can win at life when that standard is only achievable by only 1% of mankind.

    Asaph had the same questions as you. Try reading Psalms 73 because a Biblical character felt the same way as you do. The world's rewards are only temporary and God given. Eventually, you're going to have to give it all back and give an account of what you did with all these privileges. Try keeping an eternal perspective. The more good you do, the more eternal reward you will get in Heaven.

    "But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." ~Luke 12:48

    “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ~ Matthew 6:19-21

    "What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?" ~Mark 8:36

    "But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first." Matthew 19:30

    When you are looking at everything else or devoting your attention on what others have and you dont instead of God and His Word, nothing is going to flow right.

    Mathew 6:33
    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    This means that you focus on God and His Ways AND do them, live by them and more will be added unto you.

    Be thankful for what you do have and seek God in what He has and then you will see gain.
    Blessings

    Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.
    Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
    Delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:1-4

    I just listened to a teaching 2 days back on the different ways on how to DELIGHT in the Lord. They are:-
    1. Praise and worship
    2. Meditate on the Word
    3. Wait on the Lord
    4. Fear the Lord

    I have recently realized that counting your blessings can greatly help to reduce our negativities. Be thankful to God that He has blessed you with good health so that you can go work and earn something to provide for yourself and your family.
    Better the little that the righteous have
    than the wealth of many wicked;
    for the power of the wicked will be broken,
    but the Lord upholds the righteous. Psalms 37:16-17

    Great replies, can I add James 4:14 ,
    "whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away."
    We are only here for a very short time, and should not measure our successes by the standards of this world.
    Putting your personal relationship with God before everything else in this life can and will change you, it is for eternal life that we should strive.

    Does God really punish the evil doers in this life?
    What good is it if you tell the evil doers that they will go to hell after death?
    They don't even believe in after life, they will continue to do evil to gather wealth and live evil lives.

    Are Christians aware that we are living in this world, we are subject to the influence and control of the political/social/economic system of this world.
    You may think that loving money is not godly, but you always have no choice but to work hard for money too, because you need to survive.
    Who will pay for your house/car loans?
    Who will pay for your children's education fees?
    Like it or not, you could also lose your job, and have no money to survive,
    your church will not help you too,
    I don't think there are many churches will help members who lose their jobs and fall into financial difficulty.
    You have no choice, you have to bow down to the evil system of this world in order to survive.
    Do you really believe God will provide your needs?

    "money" is very important to Church, because I see that many churches are asking for millions of offering, with the reason to expand the kingdom of God.

    Church is the place where people always talk about money money money.
    The pastor talk about it.
    All the time the church's management will say that "we need money to expand the kingdom of God".

    Yes, money is so important to church.
    Therefore, Christians have to work hard for money, with the "holy reason" of earning money for God.
    Is that true?

    But God should exercise his justice in the present time and in this world,
    does God postpone his judgment to after life? I can't imagine that.

    Do not desire the destruction of the wicked when it comes.
    YES HE DOES.
    BUT OUR hearts should remember HOW WICKED we are wwithout HIM
    and the fact that HE reconciled us to GOD while enemies.
    SO our mission is to preach the reconciliation of GOD to man
    the gospel of Christ , in hopes ourenemies will repent and be saved.

    Honestly I worry not one ounce about this.
    I work just day by day, and if the time comes that I am even hunted , persecuted
    on the run , WHY WORRY...........GOD FEEDS SPARROWS HE WILL ME EVEN THEN.
    Talk about PEACE of mind. BUT THEN JESUS DID SAY MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU
    Tribulations are bound to come . Its impossible that offences against me wont come.
    BUT MY PEACE wont wane one ounce. FOR GOD IS WITH ME no matter what comes
    against me...........and even if I am killed.............to be absent from the body
    OH PRAISE THE LORD is to be present with HIM , WHAT JOY on that DAY
    but joy I have even now..........NOW THIS IS THE PEACE that PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING
    OH let the people receive the LORD and the abundant life of KNOWING HIM
    and TRUSTING HIM......the JOY of the LORD . HE IS OUR INHERITANCE
    HE IS THE RICHES that never fade. SING IT PEOPLE < JUST SING IT.

    THEY preaching the false prosperity, get the heck away from them.
    I told people over and over again this prosperity gospel they preach
    turns man against GOD. why don't god love me , why do others prosper and I don't.
    AND this is a example today .
    HERE is PROSPERITY>...............BLESSED BE HE WHO COMES in the name of the LORD
    yeah DAVID knew PROSPERITY , real PROSPERITY
    he CRIES FOR IT IN PSALM 118
    HE says OH LORD SEND NOW PROSPERITY...and the answer BLESSED BE HE WHO COMES
    in the name of the LORD........HE SAW JESUS ..........he even speaks of the STONE in that
    psalm. Jesus is THE RICHES............
