Poverty vs. Wealth (Part II): The Christian and Poverty

first_imgThe focus of this second article of the series on the Christian understanding and attitude towards both poverty and wealth is on poverty and its major causes. We already noted in the introductory article that our concentration in this series on material or indignant poverty. What are the common causes of poverty and why is it so wide spread around the world? What is the Christian take on the issue of poverty? Let us examine in brief in below. But first a summary of article one on background and definitions:According to research done by John Stott, there are three major categories of poverty. These categories are the indignant or economically poor, the oppressed or powerless poor, and the humble or spiritual poor.Economically speaking the indignant poor are those who lack the basic necessities of life, namely, food, shelter, clothing and basic health needs. They are sometime referred to as the destitute. We may refer to people who have more than the basic necessities of life such a television, a vehicle, a smartphone, washing machine, two or three decent meals a day and the like that make life a bit more comfortable but in comparison with the rich poor relatively. They do not have luxury goods and items in abundance as the rich have. The word poor is also employed in reference to the one deserving pity and sympathy. Like we would say, “Poor Flomo, he recently lost both his job and his wife”.The oppressed poor, sociologically and politically speaking, are those whose rights are denied because of their race, tribe, religion, political affiliation or place of residence. They may have some material comforts but have no say in the decision making of the society they belong to. The spiritually poor are those who recognize and acknowledge their need and dependence on God. They do not confide solely in their own strength or any other human strength. Jesus calls them, “blessed are the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:8). Our main concern in this series is with the materially poor.The rich on the other hand are those who have material abundance. This again is relative in relation to a particular society and depending on whom one is comparing the rich to. It is the complete opposite of the poor. They have lot of money and property and can afford the comforts of life. Rich can be used in terms of interesting and variety. “The country has a rich history and culture”.A study of Church history reveals that there has been and still is a variety of Christian views on poverty and wealth ranging from seeing material poverty as the way of the true Christian life to regarding wealth as the reward of genuine faith, from seeing poverty as a mark of true spirituality to regarding wealth as an offense or obstacle to faith. We shall explore these a bit more in subsequent articles. Suffice it to say at this stage that poverty and wealth do affect real lives and how we regard them matters very much.Poverty is pervasive. What is responsible for its widespread? From a biblical perspective all the blame for poverty can be laid at the feet of sin. And sin, by the way, is any thought, word and deed that is contrary to God’s will. One form sin can take is laziness. Proverbs has a lot of warnings against laziness. Laziness is an indirect, slow but sure way of inviting poverty on oneself. “A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man” (Proverbs 6:6-11). Other aspects of sin are greed, drunkenness, gluttony, extravagance, mismanagement or abuse of resources, and failure to make adequate use of available resources and opportunities.Some of these sinful ways are caused by bad governance and selfish policies and practices on both national and international levels. People are denied of their rights and opportunities to better themselves. Terrible injustices work against them from the crib to the grave. Both the individual themselves and society reduce them to appalling living conditions. Conversely, individuals and society must work in concerted efforts to reduce or eradicate extreme poverty. How? The next article will make some suggestions.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Amnesty period granted for miners to pay arrears to GGMC

first_imgThe Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) has embarked on an amnesty period, which commenced on October 1, allowing miners to make payments if they were behind on rental payments. In a notice, the Commission informed that the Natural Resources Ministry was flanked by numerous requests from miners, who were lagging in their payments for renting medium-scale properties.A grace period is extended to all medium-scale property holders who are in arrears or those whose properties have not already been cancelled in the official gazette. Adding to that, 50 per cent of the accumulated penalty on these debts will be waived.“The penalty accrued on said arrears will attract a waiver of fifty per cent,” the notice read.Miners were warned that the grace period will end on December 31, 2019, and will not be extended. For those who do not make use of this opportunity, their properties will be cancelled. The outstanding payments of rentals should be deposited prior to the said deadline.Miners have been faced with a number of challenges in the extraction of gold, with deplorable interior trails being a chief issue. In July, a large number of miners and other business operators complained of not being able to reach the mining areas to work owing to the deplorable state of the Itaballi-Puruni Road, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).The Itaballi-Puruni Road is the main thoroughfare used by persons in accessing the gold mining districts of Puruni Number 3, Cuyuni Number 4, and the Middle Mazaruni area, Region Seven from the Papishou Landing. The Puruni Road runs from the community of Itaballi, Mazaruni River, Lower Mazaruni, to the Papishou Landing, Mazaruni River, and Middle Mazaruni, and is the only entrance and exit to various key sections of Region Seven.However, gold declarations by the Guyana Gold Board (GGB) for 2019 are expected to be surpassed by the end of this year in light of the records for the past six months which are higher than expected.In January, the GGB had projected that for 2019, declarations and exportations are to be pegged at 651,000 ounces. This estimation was established in retrospect to the outcome from 2018, which turned out to be an “encouraging year” for the organisation.last_img read more

Montebello PD honors officers in Iraq

first_img “I was thinking of a way to have a visual reminder of Johnnie and Brandon,” said Cpl. Jennifer Garcia, 31. After searching the Internet and talking with her mother, Garcia thought a yellow ribbon would be appropriate since it symbolizes the safe return of a loved one. She approached Police Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez after designing the pin, which includes the officers’ I.D./badge numbers. “I thought it was a perfect way to honor these two fine young men,” Couso-Vasquez said. “They served us here and now are serving the entire country.” The pin is now a part of every uniform, placed on the right breast-pocket. “They are like my little brothers,” said Garcia, who was Contreras’ training officer. When she told Contreras about the pin in an email, he was surprised. “They didn’t realize how much they mean to all of us in the department, especially since they’ve been here only nine months,” Garcia said. Couso-Vasquez presented a pin to each Councilmember at Wednesday night’s meeting. He also played a message received Sept. 3 from the young men. “We’re heading out today for Iraq, and I wanted to thank you for all your support,” Contreras said. “See you when we get back.” Couso-Vasquez said he chokes up when he hears it. “A year is a long time to be away, but we will remember them, and the pin is one way we can do that,” he said. The Montebello Police Officers Association paid for each of the pins worn by the department’s personnel. The remainder of the pins are being sold for $2.50 each with all proceeds to go to the association’s benevolent fund. To purchase a pin, send email to Cpl.
