    I would encourage you to listen to this program on starving millions at the top of this link For those who wish to hear it later or get an idea of the content and astonishing comments...... I'll try to post some notes I took........latter.

    ---------------------
    Please listen to this program and post what you think.


    Do you agree with the problem?

    Does the solution seem reasonable?

    What, if anything, can we do politically?

    What role, if any, does the body of Christ play in this situation?

    "Millions of people are starving to death right now. Why?


    The Malthusian theory of overpopulation states: "the world just can’t produce enough food to feed 6 billion people!"

    If that is true it means that God is at fault for famine.

    That, of course, is nonsense.

    Evolutionist elitists like that theory though. It fits hand in glove with another favorite of theirs, the Darwinian theory of "survival of the
    fittest." Of course, THEY are "the fittest" so it is "natural selection"
    that they live in wealth while the "unfit" millions die of starvation. "Too bad, It’s a jungle out there" they say.



    Don’t fall for the elitist "overpopulation" lie. Learn how the "problem of world famine" could easily be solved in ONE DAY. Then you will understand why YHWH is about to judge this wickedness in a neighborhood near you! "

    The population of the earth is 6.7 BILLION people. (300 MILLION reside in the USof A)

    8.3 MILLION possess and control the majority of the wealth of the world. In 2004 their wealth increase by 8.2% to 30.8 TRILLION dollars. 225 of the top fortunes control 25% of the total assets of the world.

    Trends in wealth...... difference between the richest nations and the poorest nations of the world:
    1820 -----3x richer
    1913 -----8x richer
    1950 -----35x richer
    1992 -----72x richer than the poorest nations.
    The difference now stands with 1/5 enjoying the prosperity of 86% of the wealth they possess while 4/5 of the world share the remaining 14%. (This is like 5 people sitting at a table and one gets 17 plates and the remaining 4 must split the contents of 3 remaining dishes.)

    President Bush alluded to this disparcy of wealth in a speech given in 2001 when he called it unjust and an unstable situation that half of the world lives on less than $2 a day while the rest of the world lives in plenty and comfort.

    How can this be?
    We might 'excuse' that its because 'they' know how to live with less: Wrong! They have the same needs as 'we' do. So we blame their hunger on 'over population'. Wrong! Although the UN is infamous for its encouragement for population control and promotion of controls on the environment and interest in disease and nutrition, its division of agriculture has assessed the ability of the land to support the water and food requirements as a bounty to support a population of 33 BILLION people. .......Well over 5 times of the number on the face of the earth today. So why are people dying for lack of nutrition? Poverty! If they had the means, they could buy the food.

    Around the world and particularly in the poorest countries, people are dying for lack of one of the most basic needs....... food. 30 THOUSAND children die each day due to hunger. :tear:

    Why?:BangHead:
    Why the growing disparity between the richest nations and the poorest nations?
    Don't we 'give' them a lot of aid to feed their poor?
    What is 'wrong' with them that they can't 'help' themselves out of their poverty?

    -------More to come.... or visit the site and listen and help me complete the post.

    Take no thought for what you will eat or what you will put on. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL THESE THINGS will be added unto you. There's the answer to world hunger.

    I respectfully disagree:

    This is the beauty of the KJV; When the pronoun 'you' is used, it is personal, distinctive, individual. When the pronoun 'ye' is used, it is directed to a group and not an individual.

    The first portion of the quote is directed to the person who is fearful. The second part is an admonition to all within hearing.

    The fact is all do not seek the kingdom of God. Even among Christians (the postings on this board stand as witness) all do not seek the righteousness of God: How, then, can we gather the promise if we are unwilling to meet the condition? There is the answer! Not to world hunger....not to 30,000 children dying daily due to malnutrition..........not until the kingdom of God and his righteousness. "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven."

    Righteousness and the kingdom of God are together. The kingdom of God doesn't reign in unrighteousness. Until we stand against sin, and take back the tolerance and 'permission' we've given (in) to sin...... adultery, divorce and remarriage, fornication, homosexuality, abortion, drug reliance and dependancies (sorceries), acceptance of other 'gospels' so long as they name the name of Christ, etc. etc.

    Now for my next post:

    As a preparatory to the rest of my notes on that radio program, here is a video presentation by a Baptist Missionary, testifying to what he heard and saw while ministering in the oil fields: (about 75mins long..... well worth the while.....the real kicker is at the end)

    Truth, the post WW2 middle class phenomenon is fast fading and the US is reverting to the world norm of mostly working poor. "We have met the enemy and they are us," Pogo. Or we will be them.

    Great! I stand on the Promises of God also! No problem! Many of His promises are conditional and to a people who meet those conditions. Those promises which are not conditional are often still specific to a particular person or people and not universal.

    By the way, there is still enough land in Texas to provide a 5000 square foot building lot to every family in the world.

    Guessing, but I think there is enough land tied up in US freeway right-of-ways to provide housing for every American and our resident aliens.

    Guessing, but I think that if American residential lawns were plowed and food planted that much of the American basic food requirements could be met. If all the golf courses in Cal were planted with veggies . . . .

    Now you're thinking! Much of this is true, not only of our own country, but of many countries throughout the world. The problem is much land and wealth is tied up by the government or wealth of corporations, and family trusts and estates, who do not use it, will not use it, and restrict others from the use of it. They hoard it for various motivations...... some is to keep control, some is to restrict the growth and prosperity of others, and some is for speculation....i.e. maybe it will increase in value or a use to which they can put it to: In the meantime, 'they' and their governments move to restraint the use of land by all in possesssion of even little areas, by regulations, fines, permits, and taxation, adding to the oppression of the poor who own little to begin with, or who find themselves unable to compete for their livelihood against the corporate technology and economy.

    I'm not necessarily speaking against what you're saying because I tend to agree with it. However, I don't think you fully understand what you're saying. You're talking about a redistribution of wealth. Democrats have long supported this under Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Aid to Dependent Children, Head Start, etc. Socialists fully supports this idea. Of course the early church was socialistic so that's not necessarily a bad thing.


    Act 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
    Act 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all [men], as every man had need.

    Act 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
    Act 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
