Yes, to be poor is a Sin.
Says who ? Says the ONE within YOU. Says GOD.
No one really reads between the lines, no one really gets the whole picture that GOD wants us all to be RICH. To be rich is not to be "evil", like everyone was being led to believe in.
We were born with a "RIGHT TO LIFE", and that would mean the right to have the FREE and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to bring about the FULL USE of OUR MENTAL, SPIRITUAL and PHYSICAL unfoldment, in short the right to be RICH.
They said that being RICH means that you are satisfied or contended with a LITTLE. No one should be satisfied with a LITTLE if he has the CAPABILITY to HAVE MORE. To be content with what little you have, is sinful.
What is SIN ?
SIN = is falling short of the MARK.
The primary Greek word rendered "sin" is "hamartia". This word essentially means "missing the mark; falling short; or a departure". The essential idea being conveyed by the use of this word is that of "a departure from holiness"; thus "hamartia" means to sin; to depart from God's standard of holiness; to become unrighteous; to fail to live up to what God requires of us. (Rom 3:23; 14:23; James 4:17; 1 John 3:4)
And to be POOR is SIMPLY falling short of the MARK of what GOD said in
"However, there should be no poor among you, for in the land the LORD your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you,
"if only you fully obey the LORD your God and are careful to follow all these commands I am giving you today"
"For the LORD your God will bless you as he has promised, and you will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. You will rule over many nations but none will rule over you. "
Do not take it all literally. NATION does not simply mean NATION as in a NATION. Nation can be a PERSON too. So this wisdom, is applicable for anyone.
God declared that WE CAN HAVE ALL THE RICHES IN THE EARTH, that IT IS POSSIBLE FOR ANYONE TO BE WEALTHY.
But, you can only achieve it if you FOLLOW the UNIVERSAL/NATURAL LAWS that GOD has set for you.... and to be IGNORANT OF THOSE LAWS excuses NO ONE.
As to what are those laws?
Well, it is for you to find out... IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS AN INDIVIDUAL LIVING IN THIS ABUNDANT UNIVERSE to SEEK the TRUTH and THE WISDOM (not just knowledge and Information for they are nothing compared to wisdom) that GOD has laid down.
How to BEGIN SEEKING WISDOM?
Fearing THE LORD.
"For in fear of the LORD, is the BEGINNING OF WISDOM".
and then you "Knock, and it shall be open, Seek and you shall find, Ask and it shall be given."
I have given you the start on... the TRUTH... that everyone CAN BE RICH, now your job is not to fall short on the mark, on the standard that GOD gave us.
