Re: Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?
Oh I dont know, but it might have something to do with greed, and host of other non-stop sins against God....oh... and the fact that they are evil and worship money over God.

Just a guess.

Yes, the bible doesn't hate rich people at all. The bible is a story telling you to focus on God, not earthly things like money. If God is pure love, where does money or rich fit in with that? It just doesn't. Most people who have money are truly focused on their money and that to them is their security. God, our creator, wants us to be focused on him for security. He loves us so much, and wants us to love him not money.

Re: Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?
because they are walk ins, or vampire familiars that help harvest loosh energy. money is just a physical representation of this true soul/ emotional currency.

that is why you have to do sacrifices or bad things to get it and keep it.

what else do you want to know?

1 Come now, rich ones, weep and howl for your hardships coming on. 2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes have become moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver have corroded, and their poison will be a witness against you, and will eat your flesh as fire. You heaped treasure in the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the laborers reaping your fields cry out, being kept back by you. And the cries of those who have reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of hosts. 5 You have lived luxuriously on the earth, and lived wantonly. You have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and murdered the just; he does not resist you.

 Quoting: dschis1000


this too. the focus should be on God.

19 Do not lay up treasures on earth for yourselves, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. 20 But lay up treasures in Heaven for yourselves, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye. Therefore if your eye is sound, your whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No one can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Re: Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?
I'll take a stab at this where it may actually make sense.
In a preindustrial time, one can only become wealthy using others to profit from, and abuse by way of taking a greater share of the profit of their physical labor.
In essence, one becomes rich through overt exploitation and greed over the results.
Essentially one became rich only via slavery and abuse and exploitation.
You may disagree, but that's likely it, the intentional and avoidable abuse of the unfortunate and disproportionate confiscations of the results of their toil.

Re: Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?
And, should anyone care to notice, wealth was no sin in the old testament, but a validation of ones chosen status. The old testament had no problem with enslaving or otherwise exploiting non chosen tribes or resources for the enrichment of the chosen ones.
Yet another example of significant disparities where one cannot simultaneously celebrate the domination of others with the requested lack of concern of luxury and control of others in this life.

GIVE ME TODAY MY DAILY BREAD, AND THUS, LET ME RECOGNIZE MY TRANSGRESSIONS AND ERRORS, AND I SHALL RECOGNIZE THE TRUTH. AND DO NOT LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION AND CONFUSION, BUT DELIVER ME FROM ERROR. FOR YOURS IS THE REALM WITHIN ME AND THE POWER AND THE KNOWLEDGE FOREVER,

A person who gets rich before they know God will never turn to God,They never ask for Gods help, they never suffer really not enough where they have to look to a higher power. A person who has already found God and knows God then they become rich will most likely not turn from God and will use the Money for charity, and basic things they need. they wont go crazy and sin, sin, sin. so its ok to get rich just dont put money ahead of God. so thats why its easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, becasue the only way to heaven is through Jesus and you have to have faith.and worship God not Money.

The bible didn't hate rich people, your presumption made it so. With thousands of verses, Bible can be interpreted any way you wished. When you expected to see a Karl Marx manifesto, you'll only read verses supporting that view point and discard anything contradicting.

While the verses you read seem to suggest being rich is a undesirable, the contradicting verses below even suggest God gave riches to Solomon:

2Ch 1:12 Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I (God) will give thee riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
1Ki 10:23 So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom.


The bible does not hate rich people. Rich is not the problem, but trusting only in the riches is the problem.

Mr 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

Re: Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?
Jesus was in fact, a socialist.
Read HIS WORDS.

Mark 10

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

25 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.

26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
