Some people agree to this statement and they might turn around and say that rich means anyone, whether individuals or groups like countries, who has more than they need to fulfill the basic daily requirements. There is one quarter of the worlds population that has over three quarters of the worlds wealth, three quarters of the worlds food is eaten in the rich north. The poor world has only 30% of the worlds food grains and basic daily requirements Some rich countries spends so much on itself and its comforts while the poorer nation suffers.
Debts are owned by the third world countries from the richer countries. Its is also true that there should be no rich people in a rich nation if there are people below the basic poverty line. Many Christians argue that rich people should be taxed to eradicate poverty and help the needy. The bible also says that if there are people in need then we have to help them. If we are rich and there are poor people then it seems logical that we have to use our wealth even if it means that were going to be poor.
The rich north just gets their wealth from poorer countries and take over them that’s why the country becomes poor. It is also true that there should be no rich people in a rich nation if there are people. Others do not agree to this statement even if there is poverty in the world because they might not care about other people and they consider themselves rich because they have more wealth than other people.
They might turn around and say that there should be rich people because how can there be poor people if there isn’t rich people around. They might also have some proof that there is rich people because of this extract from John 3:17-18 it states that “If a rich person sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against his brother, how can he claim that he loves god” They might also turn around and ask what is wrong with people making a lot of money?
They help the government to help the poor by paying taxes which provide social security benefit. There will always be poor people in the world. By getting rid of rich people they will not benefit the poor, in fact the more rich people there are in the world the better it might be for the poor people. The bible says we will never be able to get rid of poverty in the world because it is everywhere.
In my own opinion There should be no rich people in the world as long as theres poverty but then if there’s no poor people no one can be called rich because we’re all going to be the same individuals and this will change the whole world in many ways. I think there’s should be rich people in the world because wealth can be used in good ways as well but the rich people spend their money itself and its comforts and pleasures while poorer countries suffers. If the rich people could do what Jesus says and help the poor, there would be no problem even if they stayed rich and wealthy.
