        the average "poor person" can read and write, lives in a heated home with running water, electricity, television, internet, computers, too many calories is a bigger problem than too little

          They also have no safety net. All it takes is one severe illness to completely screw you over. That's also ignoring how some people just can't afford medication. Insulin should not be anywhere near as expensive as it is. Also, high calorie foods can be relatively cheap, but stuff that is actually good for you is more expensive. Housing is also absurdly costly.

            I dont disagree that there's still room for improvement , but thats beside the point that there has been an unimaginably dramatic improvement, and its not like anyone has come up with anything better yet

            Can't you just get rice and take a multivitamin?

            lmao
            But if you're serious, rice + red lentils + multivitamin is a better combination. Unlike most other pluses, red lentils don't need to be soaked before cooking and they're done in like 15 minutes. 25g of protein per 100g of dried lentils, and you get a complete protein by pairing them with rice. It's the ultimate poor people food.

            For who? People who make around $100,000? Whoever telling you that just wants socialism for upper class people. If they were poor they would know everything is free for poor people.

        Maybe we should try taking the wealth from them and making sure it's spread totally evenly. Has anybody ever tried that before? How did it turn out?

    When you design a splinter church with no checks and balances on what is doctrine or who teaches it in what way, the inevitable result is going to be a church that teaches whatever society agrees with most at the time. The church, much like society, thinks helping the poor is cool in concept, but hates it in practice.

      I mean, that's literally just what Catholicism is in practice:

        even Francis let a report go through against it saying "God cannot bless sin".
        heretics are not the whole church.
        hope these guys get a warning stern enough for a desire to repent.

        they're possibly already barred from celebrating the sacraments by canon law, also.

            yeah, hope that happens.
            as per canon law, if this is properly grave error, they're automatically barred from anything.

    Liberalism and free market enterprise is what began lifting humanity out of poverty, which is why the elites hage it.
    Protestants later became champions of American corporate capitalism because of the Cold War.

    perversion of the Gospel for personal gain.
    the lack of authority in protestantism makes it easier to do so.
