The Bible Complains About Hoarding Wealth

Isaiah DISAGREES
“loose the chains of injustice … share your food with the hungry … provide the poor wanderer with shelter … clothe them”

James THREATENS
“Listen, you rich … misery … is coming on you. … Look! The wages you failed to pay … are crying out against you.”

Jesus CONDEMNS
“Depart from me … Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”

Do we really think our religion’s moral principles apply a) to the “little people”, but b) NOT to the powerful?
