Sadly much of the Catholic church, “mainline” protestants among others... long ago fired Jesus Christ and hired Karl Marx. :(No better example than the “liberation theology” of the Latin American Catholic church). This has resulted in permanent poverty in countries rich in natural resources, climate, flora and fauna. Countries were the people should be prosperous... but when the “church” declares prosperity to be “sinful” it cannot flourish. Jesus did admonish His followers to freely give of their bounty, but nowhere did He authorize any person or entity to come take(aka: steal) it! Good purposes or not.
