PostSubject: Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom..   Wed Jul 04, 2007 6:29 am

Within the "word of Truth" inward and outward poverty are seen as advantage to the person in process of becoming. Both and physical and spiritual poverty are seen as a condition which makes place for a higher understanding. Jesus advised the rich to sell all that they had and give it to the poor. He challenged men to willingly enter into a physical poverty to seed the kingdom of heaven instead of the material riches. He reveals a man's life does not consist of an abundance of possessions. He warns of the inherent problems of the riches, cares, and pleasures of this life. Instead of working for meat that perishes he calls to labor for meat that endures to eternal life. He points out correctly that treasures laid up on earth are very subject to loss. Instead of gambling or withholding moth, rust and corruption he challenges to lay up treasures in heaven. He promotes a life of abandoned trust for the simplest necessities of life such as food, drink and clothes. He promises that when the first priority becomes seeking the kingdom these things will be added to you. So even are necessities of survival are mere. add ons, much less any other desire we might have. Jesus calls for service to only one master and trust in that one. He points out that service to two is not possible. It must be one or the other. These and other like sayings put us in direct conflict with the social view of riches are good and poverty is bad. Sensibly in the vision of conversion we can see that Jesus is exactly right. But faced with a mind brought up in materialistic values and a whole world, that survives on the dynamics of buying and selling the practice and conformity to this value puts you at odds with the whole world.
