In after life, Trump can't take from poor, give to the rich


Friday, June 29, 2018

Jesus told a parable about a rich man and a poor man. In this life, the poor man needed compassion. In an after life, their roles were exactly reversed.

To me, this parable carries a powerful message that applies exactly to President Trump and his enablers and to immigrants, who are not "aliens."

I assume that some readers, who may know the Bible better than I do, derive an opposite message. I guess that heaven will decide who is right. Maybe "the devil will take the hindmost."

I believe that other things being equal, it is better to take from the rich and give to the poor than to take from the poor and give to the rich.
