Six-nine months ago, the Corporate Media was filled with stories asking “Is the American Dream dead?”
SO: Is the American Dream dead?
The few Christians [FEW THERE BE: How Many Christians are There?] remaining should sincerely hope so, as the “American Dream” was the name the mystery of iniquity gave to “friendship with the world.”
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
—1 John 2:15
After World War II, America became the wealthiest country in the history of the world. This was accomplished by artificial means. Wealth corrupts; consequently, America became more corrupt.
In the United States of America, even the poor are richer than 90 percent of the rest of the world.
If your family income is $10,000 a year, you are wealthier than 84 percent of the world. If it’s $50,000 or more a year, you make more than 99 percent of the world. That’s one of the more oft-cited stats. The World Bank, Poke’s Global Rich List and various economists have a bunch of perspective-gathering statistics to chew on if you have some time to go online and find out just how rich you are. They can also back up their numbers.–Income in Perspective: America’s Poor among the World’s Wealthy
In fact, America’s bottom ventile is still richer than most of the world: That is, the typical person in the bottom 5 percent of the American income distribution is still richer than 68 percent of the world’s inhabitants.
Yes, the powers that be are making it tougher on the poor in America, but the poor in America are still better off than most of the rest of the world. And no, this in no way relieves one from helping those less fortunate than oneself.
Whether it’s called “The American Dream,” “The American Way” or “Living the Dream,” unfortunately, the “American Dream” is alive and well and flourishing in the USA.
And it continues to be a snare to the unwary.
“For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
In America, a land where even the poor man is rich materially (compared to the rest of the world), Luke 18:25 applies to even the person living in public housing and receiving food stamps.
“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:3-4
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
