    Is the premise of religion anti-success, anti-achievement, & anti-wealth?  It seems that religions glorify abject struggle & being poor to the point of poverty.  Religion tends to deride those who want to improve themselves & use their ultimate human potential to advance themselves intellectually & socioeconomically.   Religion wants people to be powerless & poor so that the religious authorities can CONTROL them, keeping them ignorant of themselves.  Religion actually wants people to be ignorant paupers.  Your thoughts?

      Matthew 19:24.  But apparently it is easy for those that forcibly take what others have because "My cause is just".
