Rich people

1Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. 2 Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. 4 Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. 5 You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.
James 5:1-6 (ESV)


The truth is self evident sir, it’s a warning to the rich.

Ma pasta wa bonobo land wako kwa ngori:D:D

speak for yourself peasant…

Sounds like the author of James was a bitter sufferer angry at resident billionaires the same way we have peasants today angry at Bill Gates and Elon Musk.

Why to the rich?

Good question


God doesn’t take it kindly when we oppress others to get ahead.
Fair wages for fair work, that’s all the OP is trying to say.
Na kwa nini mnajishuku sana ?? Are you mindless capitalists ?

All of the Bible is the Holy inspired Word of God.
No one should be “worth” $260 billion when others are dying of hunger. It’s a farce. Can you imagine what these rich fools will do when their stocks go to zero? Picture Bezos and Musk weeping and howling. :smiley: I hear that Amazon forces their workers to urinate in bottles for efficiency purposes because Bezos needs another yacht and so forth. These billionaires and the muhindis closer to home are ghouls of inhumanity, so it will be a good day when they are stripped off of their idols. People absolutely worship these ‘celebrities’ in the place of God, when they are just mere mortals who poop, urinate, sleep and die like the rest of us. Remember the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.

Capitalism is satanic. Bleeding the majority to enrich a few individuals
