JGW, Greger...back in those "used to be" days, the Bible's Book of Amos talked about social justice and made numerous references to the fate that awaits those who abuse the poor.
10 For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces. 11 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.
In this day there are many false gods who are preaching that "God" smiles on the wealthy and visits evil on the poor, because in the scriptures of these false gods, it is said that the poor are thus because they are wicked, and the wealthy righteous.
Even if you did away with the Christian God altogether, such a thing can't even be true in Nature, let alone in Biblical Scripture. Such a notion goes against anything and everything in the Universe. It's an impossibility. And it's pure evil.
