Question for Christians: Isn't your politico-economic system based against teachings of Christ?

Christ lived like a pauper all his life. He ate simply and lived simply and he

gave glad tidings to the meek for inheritance of earth. On the other hand

he declared : " A camel can enter in the eye of a needle but a rich man

can not enter kingdom of God".

But rich politicians aided by multi billionaires are ruling the roost in Christian

nations and the poor form long queues to buy lottery tickets to become

rich. So where are the believers in Christ and where is the belief in his

teachings ? Or do you want to convert people to rule over them?

    Jesus or His disciples never gave any ruling or political system as does Islam gives a complete system which is Khilafat...thats why christians had to develop their own ruling system called Democracy which rely on not the character of the voters but the number of voters...!!!

    And that is why, Islam is not only a religion but also a Deen (way of life or Shariah)...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C4%ABn

    So, Islam is both a Madhab (religion) and a Deen unlike other Abrahmic faiths which are just religions...

    Question for muslims: Isn't your politico-economic system based on teachings of mohammad?

    mohammad though may have been a miser lived like a king from the loot and booty that he took. He ate and lived in grandeur and gave no glad tidings to the meek for inheritance of earth. He declare that booty and loot has to be given to him.

    Today rich politicians aided by multi billionaires are ruling the roost in muslim nations and the poor form long queues to buy lottery tickets to become rich. So we see all the scoundrels i.e. the believers in mohammad follow his teachings that is why the world is getting corrupt by the minute. Or do you want to convert people to rule over them or they are forced to pay jizya tax or be killed?

    P.S to others islam is not an Abrahamic faith nor is it a religion.

    Matthew 19:24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God..."

    If you're going to quote scripture, at least get it right. It doesn't say he can't, only that it will be hard. That's because he values something more than God.

    The believers are where they've always been. Standing quietly for God, in their churches, in their neighborhoods, in their homes, doing as God leads them.

    If you work, you should eat, if you don't work, you should not eat. You reap what you sow, if you work hard, you should prosper. Christ did not come to fill his belly or to live luxuriously. Rich men will certainly enter the Kingdom, not all, but not all of the rest will enter either. Those with wealth tend to rely upon themselves and their money rather than God, this is why they may have difficulty and it has not to do with their politico-socio-economic standing. Faith in Christ regardless of who or what you are is salvation.

    you know, putting quotes when you are not quoting is really dishonest.

    "So where are the believers in Christ and where is the belief in his

    teachings ? Or do you want to convert people to rule over them?"

    you know, last time i checked you can't give "glad tidings" with a gun pointed to you. capitalism lets people choose if they want to give or not, which if you actually payed attention to what Jesus said you would know that he never forced anyone to give (which is what the government would do in the alternative).

    no

    jesus never said a person had to be poor and homeless to follow him

    peter owned a house

    KJV: Matthew 8:14.

    And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.

    jesus told us to use our possession to help those in need

    KJV: I John 3:17. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

    Jesus never came to install a politico-economic system.

    You are not making any sense. The religion has not political or economic 'system." It is a religious system.

    Now, with that said, all Churches are businesses. It should be an illegal business because they are stealing money from their congregations and this money goes directly into the expansion of the church. Almost none of it goes to aid people in need of assistance. If a church is not making money it will be shut down and relocated. No one in the church does anything for free. No one in any religious institution does anything for free.

    How is any faith any different? They are all businesses and they are all greedy and self serving. Every one of them.
