… poverty is a weapon of mass destruction …

“Poverty is a weapon of mass destruction that the rich wield with impunity.”

… nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day.

… 80% of the world population lives on less than $10 a day. $3650 a year.

… 51% of Americans make less than $30,000 a year – $2,500 a month – $577 a week.

… one of our billionaires just spent $90,000,000 to shoot his very expensive sports car into space. ..

… why?

.. because he can..

… > 21,000 children die from starvation and lack of food EVERY SINGLE DAY …

… we are poor because we choose to pay off the debts of 20 slaves every month and set them free …

… they are rich because they think that they are gods and have the right to live like gods while so much of the world is in misery …

… who do you want to be like?  the man rich enough to send his money off into space for fun?

.. or a Man Who chose to live his life in poverty, so that many could be made rich?

 

 

 


“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9, ESV)

.. i was born into an average family in the mid-west of the United States of America. my parents were divorced when i was young. ... i have been fortunate to have experienced many things that only the rich get to see. i once stayed in the Presidential Suite of the Lai Lai Sheraton Hotel, in Taipei, Taiwan. this suite composed the top two floors of the Lai Lai, where my private room overlooked the city of Taipai. ... and i have spent time in the Federal Prison System of this country as well. ... i had a construction company on the road to 'success and prosperity' and fell pray to the lures of the American Christianity Syndrome. but thank the good LORD, He allowed it all to crash around me. ... now i am quite happy to be poor, relying only on Him ....
