Hi SAM,

you said that the mind of the Buddhist Chinese is set on money even as they pray before an idol.I have seen a Biblical verse that states that God gives wealth along with sometrhing else as had been painted on a local church.The last time I went to note down the verse number, that had been thoroughly white-washed.May be because many poor converts are joining and that church can't make them all rich. :lol:

Google with key words 'what does the Bible say about wealth' or about how GOD blessed Jewish kings with wealth or about how God created both the rich and the poor.

What the Bible says about wealth is... confusing, to put it mildly.

There's the 'eye of a needle' thing; there's the verses that say god will increase wealth and well-being; and there are verses in between. And I'm just talking Gospels/Epistles.

Sort of like how there are verses in those books dealing with salvation that clearly contradict one another.

As God said that he created the rich and poor,class system is also mandated by religion.Both these forummers are naive and must get enlightened.
The rich and the poor have a common bond, The LORD is the maker of them all.Proverbs 22:2.

Perhaps the conquistadors and British traders were right when they said that they have an insatiable appetite for gold.I have got to know of these things from the God T.V evangelist whom I mentioned previously in one of today's posts of mine.

Yohan on this forum torments Hindus with the question of hereditary priesthood.Well, I have seen in the Old Testament section of the Bible, certain verses that can support hereditary priesthood.That might be in the Levites section to the best of my memory.

To justify the privileges of the high-born, Barani argued that merits are apportioned to souls and that aptitude is hereditary. He believed that only those in the nobler professions are capable of virtues such as kindness, generosity, valor, truthfulness, keeping promises, protecting other classes, loyalty, justice, gratitude, and fear of God.

Barani complained that Tughluq appointed Hindus and men of low birth to high offices. He definitely looked at Muslim government from the perspective of his aristocratic class, and he very much resented the Muslim slaves (sultani) in the government and hated Hindus even more. His bias was so strong that he even considered religious piety the privilege of good birth.He argued that state offices should be hereditary.

Islam's Black Slaves notes that Islamic teachers throughout the centuries consistently defended slavery: "For there must be masters and slaves." Others noted that blacks "lack self-control and steadiness of mind and they are overcome by fickleness, foolishness and ignorance. Such are the blacks who live in the extremity of the land of Ethiopia, the Nubians, Zanj and the like."

Ibn Khaldun (1332 - 1406) the pre-eminent Islamic medieval historian and social thinker wrote: "The Negro nations are as a rule submissive to slavery.because they have attributes that are quite similar to dumb animals."

By the Middle Ages, the Arab word "abd" was in general use to denote a black slave while the word "mamluk" referred to a white slave. Even as late as the 19th Century, it was noted that in Mecca "there are few families.that do not keep slaves.they all keep mistresses in common with their lawful wives."

It was noted that black slaves were castrated "based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite."

The views of these people are in line with those of present generation who believe that different amounts of the hormone testesterone is responsible for varying degrees of crime in different races.I read about this comment in frontpagemag.Taking the right kind of diet might reduce excess calories,harmones and crime.I also remember a racist devout Christian of frontpagemag say that the West must work towards the realisation of an independant Kurdistan.
