The 'Biblical Poor' do not exist in the West

*

There are no poor (in the Biblical sense) in the West.

(Only isolated individuals with specific causes - there are no poor as a class).

*

The Biblical Poor worked all waking hours until they dropped, suffered chronic malnutrition and usually died of starvation: almost none of their children would survive to adulthood.

*

The Modern "poor" do not work at all, are obese, have more children than anyone else, and almost all their children survive to mature adulthood.

*

Chalk and cheese.

Everyone, all classes, are nowadays wallowing in 'luxury', by ancient standards.

And this is objective, biological fact: not a matter of opinion.

*

Therefore, when modern people talk about 'the poor' as a class they are actually talking about The Rich Man: the one who had such difficulty getting to heaven - only managing it via the eye of a needle...
