Is philanthropy a sin?

If God wants us to freely choose to ignore the homeless and bleed the poor dry. God wants us to be at the mercy of the whims of a sociopathic billionaire who worships money. 

Update:

Mark: Money doesn’t grow on trees.

    Liar.  President Trump is not a sociopath, and I don't know if he is a billionaire.  We still have Congress to hold back the president, and the president to hold back Congress.

    No, philanthropy is not a sin.  Do good in the time you have left, because that's how Jesus rewards us.

    I've worked with both secular and christian groups that help to house, feed, and clothe the homeless - and to try to give them the opportunity to get out of poverty.

    I won't work with any christian group that requires people to listen to a sermon, or attend a service in order to take advantage of the benefits they are providing.

    Either you don't know what philanthropy is or you know nothing about God. Its either these two. Whoever lies about God and assumes benevolence is a "sin" obviously is a very deluded creep.

    Billionaires don't take money away from anyone. That idea is false. There's plenty of money to be made in America.

    christians treat it like it is.  they ignore christ's NT tenets every day, and rely on greed and hording wealth to motivate them - which is the exact opposite of what christ expects of a true follower. They honestly have no real values.
