This world is full of people living in extreme poverty and that should not be the case if we truly care. In this world, there are some people doing good things to help the poor and there are some people doing harm to the poor. However, most people are doing nothing and that that may be worse than doing harm.
I know that most people will never read this post so what I write here is really just between me, the poor, and God. Through the years I have pretty much walked this path alone and that has allowed much time to reflect. Most people will never understand why I choose to give everything to the poor and not to have anything. We only live once on this Earth so what is the purpose to be here? Is it to take everything that we can take and to live life to the fullest, happiness, wealth and fortune, filled with knowledge and then leaving a legacy for people to remember? Or is it simply to do your best to help pick up a part of the burden of your suffering fellow man without taking advantage of them.
Perhaps my views are pessimistic of this world we live in. I hope and pray that I am wrong. Jesus came down from Heaven to show us something and we did not want to hear and learn. He died on the Cross to take away our sins...but it's more likely we did not want our sins to be taken away so that we can enjoy our lives while the poor continues to suffer..
In this world for Evil to win, people just need to sit back and do nothing. Always stand up and fight Evil. And the road to Hell is filled with people doing good intentions. I don't know whether my actions are good or bad. If they are bad, I deserve to go to Hell and hope those I have done harm to will forgive. But, to do nothing and only care about oneself is something I cannot do.
There are rights and wrongs...morals and ethics have not changed...just people.
