I have to admit: this video makes me uncomfortable.
One of the ironies of human life is that greed and wealth are inherently at odds with Christian teaching, but it is only greed which creates wealth and only wealth that can give to the poor. Capitalism, as an economic system, does the most good for the most number of people, but is predicated on unChristian premises. I know of no resolution to this dilemma.
The Wesleyan solution is to earn all you can so that you can give all you can, but is not poverty greater where there is no capital investment?
Would a society where people did not invest their excess money but gave it away have more or less poverty?
Hmm. I need to ruminate over this some more.
