Sounds like a communist country almost to me that you are describing. Let me ask you this do you think we are all going to be equall in heaven with the same amount of treasures or rewards???



Although I see some truth in your statement I find it to be lop sided and not accurate entirely,

2 Corinthians 9:6
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

1 Timothy 6:17-19
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

I've done it again, pressed the wrong button,anyway i'll try to get it right this time,...... seems to me that however politically you want to describe Christs commandments to love others as you love yourself and treat others as you would want to be treated, the implications of those commands are clear, whatever we want for ourselves we must also want for others, i cannot amass wealth and riches whilst others suffer and die in poverty and claim to have the Love of God within me, that to me seems blatantly clear, you may describe that as "Communism", i describe that as loving your Neighbour as yourself,...... and however God decides to apportion our "treasure" in Heaven, the condemnation by Christ of Riches on Earth and those that possess them , referenced by the Bible quotes i've already given, again to me seems blatantly clear,...... and i would be interested to know why you find my reasoning " Lop sided and not accurate entirely", for perhaps the crowning achievement of this Evil and Corrupt system we in the Rich countries gain such material benefits from and the vast majority of humanity suffer and die under is as i've said, the very destruction of Gods creation itself, and if you can't see the Devils hand in this Evil, the greed, the envy, the Lust and selfishness that powers what we call Capitalism, then i think you need to take a long, hard look at the world around you.
