The Pope's Call For Global Wealth Redistribution

After reading the rr article on this subject all I could think of is the wealth the Pope sits on at the Vatican and how he plans to redistribute it to the world. Revelation Chapter 18 describes that wealth sitting on seven hills in Rome and the judgement awaiting Babylon the Great. For the Pope to say he speaks for Christ is a delusion and a lie.

I feel sorry for the poor and have spent part of my adult life in that condition. But Jesus said the poor will always be with you. Poverty is the result of non believers running the country. I believe poverty will not exist in New Jerusalem and in believing areas of the Earth during the Millennium.
Redistributing wealth is no permanent solution.

I tell you there is enough food, wealth, clothing for every single person on the planet and then some. But people at the top hoard it all to keep majority of the people powerless and depressed.

So glad I am not rich. It's very hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom.

I find it interesting how the ones who condemn the rich and demand that they redistribute their wealth are themselves rich. I don't hear them saying how they will redistribute their own wealth

Yep! 90% of the world's wealth is owned by 10% of it's population. Only until He comes will this situation be ended.

So True! A prime example of that is a warehouse full of unused aid supplies was recently found in Puerto Rico. The supplies were intended to help people from the 2017 hurricanes and was being hoarded by emergency management officials.:mad:

Here I thought that Greed was one of the seven deadly sins that the Catholics are always worrying about! Silly me!

Now they encourage it by assuring everyone that someone richer than the rest should be stripped of everything they have and “given to the poor “!

I’m sure I heard someone say that about a jar of perfume in the Bible. Oh YEAH—- JUDAS!

Which helps the poor most?

Option #1: creating jobs by allowing and encouraging investment.

Option #2: killing off incentives to invest in businesses that create jobs.

Simple economics.

Some time back I was reading a book put out by Chick publications, sorry don't recall the name offhand, but there had been a major disaster in Italy, a quake I think it was, and the pope of the time was asking the US to come up with funds to help the victims there rather than the RCC stepping up in Italy to help their own :unsure

As I suspect many others here do, I suspect a pope will be the false prophet in the end. If so, I wonder sometimes how long it will take for Catholics to figure it out. Some will never drop their ignorant allegiance because it’s been so efficiently indoctrinated into them. But some of them will connect the dots.

Redistribution of wealth is just a saying, a myth told by those sitting on large piles of money. No way will the Vatican ever part with a nickel they don't have to. As a great example, instead of paying the victims of the sexual abuse by their own Priests, they have fought their insurance companies tooth and nail to cover losses as high as $750 million. If they wanted to show they are serious, they would have paid immediately from their own massive hoards of cash.

Wealth distribution would never work anyway, at least not the way many think it would. Ted Turner once stated if you distributed all the money in the world evenly, those that have it today would have it all again in a decade. I believe that as well. Christians would not benefit as we have morals. The poor who have never had money wouldnt know how to invest it to make more. It would be the same people who have the massive wealth today that would have it all again. Soul-less individuals who do not care who they hurt to build more wealth. Sad, but true.
