by some social & religious pundits? What makes these social & religious pundits consider the rich to be immoral, even debauched while the poor are somehow viewed as more authentic, purer, & more wholesome? Give analytical answers.

There is NO such thing as unnecessary wealth. Wealth enables one to live a civilized, cultivated life as opposed to a brutish animalistic life of poverty, lack, & constant struggle!
gmwilliams....If there is no such thing as unnecessary wealth, how do you justify someone with hundreds of millions of dollars sitting in a bank account that they never use or do anything with? 'What do you call it? Isn't that unnecessary wealth?
Oh dear, there is such a thing as socioeconomic legacy. Wealthy people leave monies to their descendants so those descendants will always be socioeconomically advantaged. You see rich people think ahead....WAY AHEAD.
then why does JC criticize the rich? You know "eye of needle" etc. I knew a wealthy man who believed he was spiritual while lying and cheating. His spolit kids expected everything etc. A result of greed. Greed=too much wealth.
This is an illogical premise you have presented.There is NOTHING wrong w/ "too much" wealth. Again,THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "TOO MUCH" WEALTH.The poverty mindset seems to permeate in the aforementioned commentary. Being poor ISN'T good, people!
It's not about "being poor". How on earth did you get that out of a criticism of being greedy? People have needs but it's the greed you don't seem to admit too.
There ARE people who WANT, EVEN LOVE to be poor. They want to be victims in life. Even though there is opportunity, they maintain that they do not want ANY responsibility nor do they want to work hard to be successful!
GREAT answer by the way, I LIKE your synopsis!
