The people have Spoken!

Sinn Fein for the Poor?

It is always the people that decide the ultimate fate of a government, nation, or ideal of a system and in this case Ireland may be flourishing for the rich but not for the student or the poor!

Rents are now astronomical, just us much as they are in the U.K. and off-shore investors are making a killing and paying little taxes to anyone? But this has to change and despite not having a majority people are seeing now through the corruption of the chums political club that has ruled Ireland since 1922!

God also see the suffering of people and He will use what ever instrument that is available to Him to do His will! Injustice is not in His psyche and allowing anarchy and criminality to flourish while making excuses is neither His but our own failures and our need of Him.

Psalm 91:1-6,   Amos 5:4,   John 3:16-17,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:21-31,  Hebrews 4:12-13,  1 John 1:8-10. 

Refugees. One.

From Africa.

It is sad to say it, but the real victums of the many disasters on this continent are the poor people who have been left behind? The boat people off the coast of Libya are the rich, who can afford to get out, but they face much exploitation by those who traffick people.

Many countries in Europe today do not want these migrant refugees, because they know they are a drain on their resources and yet many are professionsal who will fill those undesirabable jobs?

Many Europeans had to leave between 1800 up to the present to go to both the United States of America and Canada, in effect invading another peoples land and exploiting them? But today too many excuses are to be found in refusing people from this, that and the other.

Numbers 11:5,  Deuteronomy 7:18,  Matthew 16:9,  Mark 8:18,  Hebrews 13:3,  Revelation 2:5.

Real Equality. Part-One.

The Poor.

Jesus said to His Disciples and this is a s much to us as well, ‘You will always have the Poor.

That is the fact of the rich nations of the world, not all beggers and those who are living rough ended up because of addiction or abuse?

Some were dumped or had no choice, we see the attitude of the self-righteous in relation to the man robbed and laying by the road before the Good Samaritan rescued him.

God wants us to give to the poor, to be mindful of those less fortunate than we may be!

Acts 11:29-30,  Galatians 2:10,   James 2:13-16.

Wealth. Part-One.

Responsibility.

Many people today are rich and so are many Christians, but it is we who need to be responsible with how we use our wealth. Many Christians are into the prosperity gospel and with it believe they can bi-pass the poor and the weak around them.

Many people want to enjoy life and have it in this world, but they perhaps should read the bible in relation to the many accounts that Jesus told us about those kinds of people!

Job 22:6-9,  Luke 12:17-21,  16:19-31.
