A LOOK AT PO-VERTY AND POVERTY (12-26-08)

 

Greetings Brethren,

 

Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of Godís Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.

Po-Verty as established by the FreedomJournal is a state of mind body and soul and lack of material resources. However, there is also the Spirit realm among those faced with Po-Verty. Therefore they are rich, as the Father of us all owns the earth, the ground, the heavens and the universe. The Cosmos thus belongs to Him.

 

Meanwhile poverty is noted as a state of mind by the foolish. But what of the lack of resources by no fault of your own? This state of mind is a myth noted by some who have exploited the poor and rendered a description of poverty as those that are irresponsible and lazy. But we seldom find anyone opting for this state of mind over one that embraces the rich. So poverty is not solely a thought process. Can I think I am rich and gain wealth? Is poverty then an acceptance of being poor? What is the responsibility of those cast into poverty by those that exploit and breed off the weak the disenfranchised and poor?

 

The Rich and Poor Canít Help It?

 

The silver the golden spoon served

him well as he laid all of his help in

it when he was born. He controlled

not his ancestors who conquered and

occupied the natives land.

 

He controlled not his status of wealth

nor did he reject it. He saw even more

wealth in greater profits and took capitalism

by the throat and exploited the poor while

claiming they were doing the state a service.

 

The poor owned not any means of producing

anything. They relied on the rich and were

rewarded for their labor with more labor

and less money. Benefits went with the long

hours as the layoffs came and jobs ended.

 

Meanwhile someone has to be rich? Someone

also has to be poor? Is there any in between?

What is, yes, what is class structure? Are there

really only three classes? Can you be in two

classes in this society?

 

The poor the middle-class and the rich.

What about those that live off other people

the lumpen proletariat? Is Marx the only one

that found them to exist? Are they rich or poor?

Can parasites and vultures ever become rich?

 

Also what about the class of Po-Verty spelled

and pronounced Po-Verty as in Po. Can anyone

be rich or Po? Can we control Po-Verty? Can the

poor control poverty? Was he rich by birth and

poor by the same circumstances of his birth?

 

John stood not idly by, but amused to the point

of challenging his intellect as the struggle and

obvious quarrel between the rich, the Po, the middle

class, the lumpen proletariat and those in the Spirit

realm of Po-Verty competed, but for what?

 

Who has the most control? Did anyone choose

to be Po? All the rich were not born rich? The

parasites had been born independent and not

dependent like all of his brethren.But the Po-

Verty stricken class controlled their destiny.

 

What in the world would one give rich or

poor for a Spirit that was heaven bound?

Would all the riches of the world that was

temporal be sufficient for anyone that could

call out the outcome?

 

So those Po-Verty not so stricken can see God.

This draws a division between them the poor

and the rich. There is a blessing not in being

Po, but in being able to see God. The rich and

poor counting money and troubles looked elsewhere.
