DOES THE BIBLE FAVOR THE WEALTHY?

Three NT authors (MARK, LUKE AND MATTHEW), state that โ€œTHE RICH WILL GET RICHER, AND THE POOR WILL GET POORERโ€. (REF. MARK 4:25, MATTHEW 13:11-12 & 25:29, and LUKE 8:18 & 19:26). Those โ€œdiscriminatoryโ€ parables filled the poor people with sorrow, and despair; because they faced a bleak future, with diminishing funds, affecting their survival.
Do you think that those irresponsible, and discriminatory, parables were justified?
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards,
John Romer

Whether you like them or not, the Koch Brothers pay wages that support 120,000 families directly and many more thousands indirectly.
Donald Trump did the same for 22,450 families.
Wealthy politicians, entertainers, athletes, and lawyers generally help no one but themselves. Nancy Pelosi has nearly 30 million dollars and no employees.
Who among these do you think will find favor with God?

White families, TOS, White families! Donald Trump did nothing to help Blacks and Browns.. his heart has never been built like that.. indirectly or directly!

Whatever Trump does, he does for himself. Duty, honor and country are alien concepts to him!

Cal, please back up your statement. You are essentially saying that no Trump employees are black or brown people and that his employees are all white.
Where is your proof? Time to put up or shut up, Cal.

TOS, I submitted that post 2 weeks and 5 days ago, and you are only now replying to it. I had wanted to take a step back, collect myself and then move forward in a greater awareness. I've decided to break away from that intent just this one time, that I may give you the courtesy of a reply. My original reply to your post is based on the ongoing rhetoric of Donald Trump that can be traced back by me to the 1970's. Trump has never illustrated to me any support of Black people

Cont'd>> except and unless there existed personal and selfish gain. Obviously, TOS, Trump has Black and Brown employees. Based on that fact, it's only logical, particularly in this day and age of law suits and activism, and in referencing an old military war term โ€“ there would be unavoidable 'collateral damage' in the wake of helping those he has shown only to care about โ€“ which, in my most observing opinion, happens to be White people. Understand, I never confuse Trump's

Cont'd>> willingness to go after Whites who disagree with his policies and/or him as a person โ€“ to suggest, even for a New York minute, that he is some kind of equal opportunity hater. Based on everything he has said, past and present โ€“ things you must be aware of โ€“ I submit to you that Trump could care less about Black and/or Brown people. The very very few who may benefit from within the threshold of those โ€œ22,450 familiesโ€ you mention, are a small price for him

Your suggestions, general statements and concerns are so far unburdened by any facts.
Cal, your deep hatred of a man, brought about by hearsay from unreliable sources is troubling. Your baseless accusations suggest that it is you who have the problem.
You seem unwilling to know the truth or incapable of grasping it.
We have prayed for you, but prayer without action seldom works.
I believe that your high emotional state has affected your mental health, to the extent that you might benefit...

TOS, just one final word before I retire into the completion of my "step back." The mere suggestion by you that my "accusations are BASELESS" indicates to me that you are completely without rhyme or reasoning. It's as if you have completely washed away all evidence showing Trump to be what he has always been.. a loathsome and nefarious person. It's not me who is psycho, TOS, it is you. You can twist and turn it any way you want.. but it will come out the same, always.. that it is you who

Believe what you want, just bear in mind that is what made you sick, in the first place. Have a speedy and thorough recovery.

No it does not, the Bible shows that God's heart cares for the financially less fortunate but also shows how being obedient to Him can make you wealthy through wisdom, discipline, patience and hard work.

No. The fact remains that the rich will always invest his money to grow bigger and greater but the poor will always be afraid to invest rather they prefer to eat the little they have ..... The poor is afraid to take a risk but the rich is not.....Their were saying the truth.

No. Wealth can be measured in many ways. If you have millions of dollars but cannot see, hear, nor walk, are you more or less wealthy than the beggar who has no money but can do all of those things with ease? Who in that case is more wealthy? Financially the 1st person but I personally would prefer to be the beggar who is wealthy in other areas.
