The Rich Must Take Care of the Poor
December 3, 2010

…and the poor must take care of each other.

So says the New Message from God. It’s not just an ethical position or the demands of a social commentator or political worldview. God’s message for this time says that the rich must take care of the poor.

The world as a whole cannot afford so big a disparity between the rich and poor. In a sense it’s a matter of global security. As the great waves of change approach there aren’t enough resources to enforce the wealth imbalance, or to power the conflicts that arise. Cooperation costs less and given what is coming, the Earth’s resources are needed.

Humanity is still growing in numbers, while the climate destabilizes, making food and water harder to come by. The potential for war and violence is gargantuan.

And what an opportunity for Extraterrestrial intruders: humanity divided, hungry, desperate, at war with itself, despairing of our ability to work together and live in peace. “Won’t someone save us from ourselves?!” As everyone gets poorer, the extremes of wealth and poverty cannot be afforded. We could lose everything.

How do we do it, though? How must I take care of the poor? I ask myself sometimes. My contributions all go to the New Message, and I Know that is right for me as a person of the New Message.

I’ve heard stories of families taking in other families during the Great Depression–that’s a possibility. I can see that happening as times get harder. But how else? Cut my consumption further and find more money to give? Send it to non-profits? Give it to local families?

What do you think? How must you take care of the poor? I welcome your insights.
