The Redistribution Of Wealth Is Anti-Scriptural

Scripture tells us that we are to pray for our leaders. This we must do. However, that does not mean that we have to agree with all of their policies. When we have leaders who go against God’s teachings, we must disagree.

We have an economic system that was based on Judeo/Christian teachings and we have a president and members of congress, who wants to change it. As Christians, we must voice our disapproval.

Consider this: The Bible states that Christ will return to rule for 1000 years. What type of an economic system do you suppose Christ will use? Do you believe He will take from the rich and give it to those who are unwilling to work? The following verses should give us an indication of what it might be. It shows what He would do with those unwilling to take risks to improve themselves.

Matthew 25:14 – 30 – “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. For whoever has will be given more and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” NIV

Christ tells us He came that we might have an abundance. Matthew 13:12 – “Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” This also applies to knowledge, wisdom and common sense. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 – “For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” Do you believe under Christ, 50% will rely on the government to meet their needs?

The Bible does not support laziness and it was not acceptable in any form. Those who refused to work and were able to, were not to be given food. They should not depend on others to take care of them. However, for those unable to work, they were well taken care of by church people. In fact, we are continually encouraged to, at all times, do our very best as an example for Christ. There is no excuse for anyone who has both the ability and opportunity to provide for their needs. One thing I learned as a Christian, if I wanted to get ahead, get promotions or a better job, was to work harder and become more prepared than others. I was fortunate that there were not a lot of people willing to give 100%.

Satan does not want us to believe that God can take care of us. He wants us to deny there is a God and allow a world ruled by his chosen person, (the Antichrist) to be the world’s savior. We, as a nation, have instituted polices to prepare for this to happen.

President Obama has suggested that if he gets an agreement with Iran, he will take it to the United Nations for approval and disregard congress and the American people. Does that give you any indication where we are headed if you have studied your Bible and prophecy? It is great that congress passed a bill not allowing that to occur.

Individual rights are in danger of being taken away. We, as Christians, must be willing to take a stand for the principles this nation was founded upon. Most of my life we had Christian leaders leading our country. This does not seem to be the case presently. We are allowing the few to change our country to deny the existence of God. Government must never try to replace Him, which they now are doing. We are seeing end-time prophecy being fulfilled.
