Why We Have Poverty In America
Weekly Sermon, 31 March, 2019
After watching a documentary of poverty in Seattle, Washington, I heard about some solutions in the video but none of which got to the core of the problem. So, I did a search on YouTube with the words: God’s solution for poverty.
Now, I knew the reason why we have poverty but I wanted another confirmation and I got one. When you do a search on YouTube with the words: God’s solution for poverty, you’ll see the same thing that I did.
The top three videos on Page 1 in YouTube you’ll find videos in three parts that give the biblical answers for why we have poverty. And sadly to say, these videos have views of 11, 10, and 2 and they have been up for 2 years! There are other videos below that happen to show up with this search and they have Views from a couple of thousand to 700,000. But they are NOT solutions. In other words, the reason why even the average man in the street do not know the REAL solution for poverty is that they are not looking for them! It’s not that these videos are on Page 497 or something like that; they are on Page 1. People either are not even typing in the search words and those that do, look for answers that ‘tickle their ears’ as the Bible says. (The context is, that some people will not endure sound doctrine but rather have their ears tickled. And this surely must be the case.
Americans (and other Christian nations) don’t expect your problems to go away when you deliberately avoid God’s solutions.
