Why do some people, that don't like to speak of religion or practice it, enjoy a prosperous life?
How do you explain the prosperous economic life of those that DON'T include God, and the poor economic life of those who pray each day, & yet struggle for the basic things in life: a home, a car that runs, a job? (I know a family with good jobs, a good kid, new cars every few years, a house that's paid in full, they go out regularly, they do share with others once in a while, they are nice people, but don't have God in their life. They choose not too, other family members are relligious, and when asked why they never baptised their teenager, they don't want to talk about it.) Any answers?
This goes to prove religion has nothing to do with morals or the ability to lead a good life.
I guess that handing over 10% of a gross income before all taxes and stoppages to the Church is a good way to end up poor. Add in the lie that tithing is the minimum a Christian should give and that they should give on top in a kind of "sowing seed reaping financial harvest" (aka divine lottery scam) and this will increase poverty further.
Additionally Christians are often taught that pursuing a prosperous career is worldly or idolatry. So we should not be surprised if Christians are often in lower paid jobs. Then if the Christian is told that God will meet all their needs according to his glorious riches (basic living needs that is), then they may be less inclined to pursue wealth and advancement compared to one who believes they must be self reliant.
Believe all you want for prosperity, financial blessing, sowing reaping money increase, it simply does not work (except for the fat preacher in the $4000 suit talking crap). I tried all that stuff for years and only ended up in debt and remortgaging my house. If only somebody slapped me around the face with common sense. When I stopped tithing and giving any money to a Church or ministry, my financial situation improved considerably. I will never give to a religious institution again as long as I live so help me God.
