DOES THE BIBLE FAVOR THE WEALTHY?

Three NT authors (MARK, LUKE AND MATTHEW), state that “THE RICH WILL GET RICHER, AND THE POOR WILL GET POORER”. (REF. MARK 4:25, MATTHEW 13:11-12 & 25:29, and LUKE 8:18 & 19:26). Those “discriminatory” 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

Yes BIBLE does FAVOR THE WEALTHY. Just look at USA where a bunch of Wall Street based Billionaires run the Country, leading to the Wall Street based Billionaire Trump being the President spewing the most vile Hate and Social depravity 😡

Knuts, has the People's Liberal/Progressive Front of Amerika (aka Democrats) set up a propaganda outlet where you live?
The fascist tactics and pretty sounding words, they utter, seem to cause those outside of the U.S. to make uninformed assumptions about our President. These fools seem all too willing to utter the most vile and hateful things about him.
Educate yourself, so that you don't make such a stupid mistake again.

Knuts, you must be very young or incredibly stupid to think that any anti-business regulation, anti-tax, pro-free speech, pro-Bill of Rights president is a fascist.
The far left-wing iteration called fascism controlled the means of production, through regulations, created high taxation and took away the people's individual freedoms. That sounds like 0bama, not Trump.
You do know that fascist 0bama is thankfully out of a job, don't you?

TOS, reading what you're saying surely brings you within the realm of the MOST uninformed. Think about what you are saying! Who greater than the POTUS himself, along with his Fox News/right-wing conservatives, have spoken more "pretty sounding words.. uttered more vile insults" against others than those you, yourself, support. The old adage "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" seems to conveniently get lost with you. This POTUS that you continue to defend

Truth is TOS, and as you well know it, Obamacare, even with certain flaws that could have been corrected, was a lot better than what we had. If you and Trump weren't such Obama haters you'd also admit that the entire program was being sabotaged by Republicans right from the very start because it had Obama's name attached to it. In my opinion, you shouldn't use Obamacare as an example for propaganda, since many Trump voters are using it.

Those little flaws in 0bamacare were costing payers much more money every month with deductibles too high to meet.
The people who couldn't afford it (approx. 13 million) could have been helped under Medicaid, which is a government obligation and the provision for doing so has existed for years.
As you well know Cal, 0bamacare was a grab for the Medicare funds (taxpayer money specifically earmarked for contributors) by the 0bama administration. This was the last untouched non-government money...

...left to steal. The Democrats looted Social Security in a similar fashion over the last few decades.
The program isn't "being sabotaged by Republicans" it is systematically being disassembled before it causes further harm. It should never have existed.
So far 0bama's name, on any program, has come to mean nothing more than failure, ineptitude, cowardice, anti-Americanism and socialism on a grand scale.

It's unfortunate you feel that way, TOS, for it seem only you and like-minded Obama haters feel this way. From whatever fake site you copied this information, you should try another. There are 3-other really good bipartisan websites you can go to. I won't give you the links, since I'm certain you'll only discard them in favor of those sites that coordinates with your hate for Obama. Nevertheless, should your unwarranted hate for Obama ever change, these particular sites will appear before you

Additionally, TOS, let me weigh in with this. I believe for you and others like you, Obama's first election in 2008 came as the GREAT 'culture shock' over previous centuries. For the people of 'like mind,' it was the tale of foreboding, the upsetting of the old “Dixie Cart” that spelled doom and gloom for an old America. I believe you are a living part of that old America. You talk a lot about Democrats wanting to keep Blacks in chains, when in reality it's Republicans like you, the self-pro

You are not the first victim of the Democrats, if you remember they imported African slaves for over a century, defended chattel slavery for two centuries and have defended segregation ever since.
If Trump decides not to run in 2020, my top presidential picks are Condi Rice, Nikki Haley, Herman Caine Rudy Guiliani and Trey Gowdy. I guess you believe Rudy and Trey made my list because I am a racist.

I see that you remain over-sensitive to anything negative about 0bama, not matter what harm he did to America, both internally and externally. He even seems to have re-energized your long suppressed racist tendencies as witnessed in your posts.
I have asked you to site the laws that Trump has broken or anything in his Oath of Office he has ignored. When I did the same..

About Obama leaving us "in a weak position China, Russia and North Korea" has nothing to do with any nefarious plot or reasoning. Nothing to do with having no desire to improve upon relations. It was about lack of cooperation from those in question and, of course, his unwillingness to kiss their asses. But instead of me wasting my time trying prove anything, your own eyes and ears are fully aware of the kind of person Trump is. You ask me to prove "anything unlawful on the part of Trump"

Won't shock me, I've always known it would be Trump and this nefarious cabinet. If you'd stop participating in conspiracy theories and "far-right wing" propaganda, you'd know it too. But you won't stop because you believe Trump and his evil alliances are edging closer to achieving their goal and your happiness, which is to make America White again, as it was when you were but a little boy. To even whisper the idea of Obama being in the criminal class of Trump should be considered as Blasphemy!

The evidence is mounting that 0bama had a hand in trying to help Hillary undermine the Trump campaign. They already have emails claiming that he asked to be kept in the loop.
They can prove that the DNC and Hillary's campaign paid for the bogus dossier and that the FBI procured FISA warrant under false pretenses.
0bama officials will see jail time and Hillary might also. This 0bama scandal makes Watergate look like grade school stuff. Zero is going down.

Yes, it looks as if Donald Trump got his victory (revenge) by getting his loyalists at the DOJ to indict former Senate staffer James Wolfe. But as you laugh, smile, or do whatever it is that you Trumpians do, keep this in mind, “What goes around comes around” again and again and again! As was reported, Wolfe leaked information to the New York Times, but he was actually indicted for the crime of lying about it to the FBI.

However, TOS, your Trump 'gods' may have bit off more than they can chew. By this maneuver, your Trump 'gods' just very stupidly set a precedent that will ensure Trump's people will go to prison. If it has bothered you at all that the Trump administration’s top officials and members of Donald Trump’s family wouldn’t be charged and tried for transactional crimes, this changes everything.

Now that a Senate staffer has been indicted for lying to the Feds, it means Attorney General Jeff Sessions will also be indicted for lying under oath to the Senate during his confirmation hearings. Now, it should be clear to you by now that Trump doesn’t care about Sessions. But it also means Donald Trump Jr will be indicted for lying under oath to the House Intel Committee.

No, I didn't dream this up. The fact that you even asked the question, shows to me you've done something I didn't believe you were capable of doing - reasoning it out to be true. And, 'Yes,' I was affected by a drug - "The drug of Truth!" Something you and the vast majority of Trumpians are unable to see or, rather, choose not to see. It's a shame too.. Truth has a way of turning liars into righteous subjects. That is, if they choose to accept it!

There is something called Truism. An infallible fact that needs no argument to prove.

This statement by the apostles is neither irresponsible or discriminatory. They have only pointed out an eternal truth. And also, this is not a parable! It is a fact. Talk to a few hedge funds manager. He will tell you that your financial clout matters where exponential profit is concerned.

Talk to real estate developers or and successful business man. They will tell you, that the more you have, the more opportunities flock to you to marshall them.

Let us look at James 2; 2 My brothers, practice the faith of our Lord Yeshua, the glorious Messiah, without showing favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your synagogue wearing gold rings and fancy clothes, and also a poor man comes in dressed in rags. 3 If you show more respect to the man wearing the fancy clothes and say to him, “Have this good seat here,” while to the poor man you say, “You, stand over there,” or, “Sit down on the floor by my feet,” 4 then

In the U.S. the distinctions between the rich and poor are less visible. Oftentimes the poorer man is better dressed and driving a fancier car than the wealthier man.
The U.S. also has people who will choose to have less money, if they can avoid working for it. Here the poor have cell phones, cable television and nice cars and no one starves. Here the generous rich man may be in a much better position to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than many of the "poor".

Only a True Republican lunatic, waging Info War on American People, aided in doing so by ultra right-wing Wall Street Media such as Fox, would say such an insane thing as:

"In the U.S. the distinctions between the rich and poor are less visible"

When in USA the distinctions between the rich and poor are the worse in entire Developed World given the fact that for example:

100-Million have NO healthcare since USA lacks even the most basic of Social services that all developed Nations

Gosh, TOS, don't you ever get tired? You say, “In the U.S. the distinctions between the rich and poor are less visible.” You then go on to say, “Oftentimes the poorer man is better dressed and driving a fancier car than the wealthier man,” And sense those two “dog whistles” weren't hateful and egregious enough, you finish your assault by saying, “The U.S. also has people who will choose to have less money, if they can avoid working for it.

If the poor and working class poor people I associate with, family included, are an indication of most poor and working class poor people in America, I can assure you, TOS, they don't choose to have less money, any more than they choose to avoid working. I do, however, know some who fit the disposition you expressed. They, I believe, are among the relative few

But they are not the majority. And they should not be mentioned without mentioning all the others who don't choose to live their lives in such a manner. I find myself having to voice my disappointment to those I know personally

Only a brain dead fascist, like WT, who is one of America's enemies within would defend the impoverishment of millions by the left-wing 0bama administration.
It seems to offend WT that President Trump is creating new jobs in America.
He is one of those people who defends the NHS, which refuses to let the parents, of a young child take him to another country to be saved. They killed Charlie Gard the same way last year and WT approves of slowly killing children.
The NHS is anti-Christian.

Cal, you use all those words and cheap shots, just to end up verifying that I was telling the absolute truth, all along.
Cal, do you consider yourself smarter than Kanye West? Please, try to confine your yes or no to a single panel.

TOS, "single, double nor multiple panels" would be enough words for you. You are one of those people who are afraid to acknowledge a good point offered up against anything you've fixated your mind to as truth. What I've also noticed about you - you, like so many others, including Trump, are an advocate and promoter of the effective weapon known as disinformation. When President Obama created policies that hurt African American and other minority communities economically, I, too, resented

But by observing him over the years, no one could ever convince me that Obama deliberately wanted to hurt Blacks, Latinos, nor any other minority or White communities in any way. After observing Trump as a citizen, as a candidate and as president, it's obvious to me that he cannot make that claim. The 8-percent of Blacks who voted for Trump did so because people like

Cont'd>> you (Republicans and right-wing conservatives) were able to convince that 8-percent that Obama didn't care enough about them to lift up their economic, educational and other social conditions that were putting a strain on their communities. That 8-percent Black vote that Trump got made up those who were foolish enough to believe that Trump would willingly and deliberately lift up their economy during his presidency. Fact is, based on all credible economists, Black unemployment

Cont'd>> is sitting around 6.5 percent, whereas White unemployment sits at 3.32 percent. The economy has been on the rise since 2010, and like with all economies, not everyone feels its positive affects. Some communities flourish while others suffer. I won't try to convince you of all the reasons why this is. I don't believe you would acknowledge agreeing with anything I have to say. Perhaps if Trump would admit his focus is not on all Americans, Blacks and Latinos specifically, but only on the

Cont'd>> privileged few, then maybe you will believe that even he can make a mistake. Let me end by saying “Sorry for using more than one panel.” And to answer your question, “do you consider yourself smarter than Kanye West?” To that I say, Kanye is his own man. What he believes is what he believes. Nevertheless, he makes some sound points. But he in no way speaks for the Black majority, that has already been established. But let me as you a question:

Cal, apparently, you have arranged with the corrupt and criminal Democrats and their far left-wing media to get your news intravenously.
You are so lost that you cant say yes or no in less than a thousand words. That is a pity, you could have made a good pro-American.

I've been more pro-American than you could ever be, TOS! Not just me, but my entire family. As far as the 'so-called' corrupt and criminal Democrats you mentioned. Let's just wait and see how things turn out for Trump and this administration and for certain Republicans over the next few months. There - I only used on panel!

It looks as if it will be much more interesting to watch the Democrats, many of whom will be indicted in the next few months. They tried to criminally undermine a legitimately elected president. A lot of those (D)ummies will be behind bars.
BTW, comparing yourself to me, on any level, but especially in service to America, will just leave you feeling inadequate and feed into your substantial inferiority complex. So you shouldn't go there.

As I alluded to earlier, a lover of disinformation. Trump Republicans, and their 'watered-down' reports. The only ones who will end up behind bars, are those who chose to hitch their wagon to Trump. After all you have witnessed come out of this White House, I am absolutely perplexed by you blind support for someone who's not only nefarious but severely suffers from a Narcissistic Personality Disorder! The idea of it seem almost criminal!

PARABLE OF THE SOWER
The subject is about WISDOM (1 Cor Ch1-2 ,New American Standard Bible).
A “disciple” is one who disciplines his life to the teachings of the one he is following. Disciples of Jesus’ teachings separate from the great multitude to live like Jesus (Mk4:9-10).
This is the KEY PARABLE. “If you don’t understand this parable, how will you understand all the parables?” (Mk 4:13).
The explanation is to His disciples – who choose to hear (Mt 13:10-16).
The disciples are blessed because they see/hear (Mt 13:16).

Your heart is the garden. Hear. (Mt 13:18-19, Lk 8:12,15)
Take care what you listen to, by your standard of measure it will be measured to you (Mk 4:24-25).

Since this parable is not about physical wealth – but spiritual wisdom – it is NOT DISCRIMINATORY or irresponsible (Mt 13:22).
They picture our FREE CHOICE to resist Satan to choose to show our faith and loyalty to our Lord!
