in The Bible
We have been told in western religious circles that Jesus of Nazareth and his disciples picked grain on the Sabbath to show and prove that the Sabbath day was no longer binding or needed. Western theology has made it appear that Jesus of Nazareth was in a religious struggle against 'Judaism' and he intended to bring about a 'new religion', which we call today Christianity. Jesus of Nazareth was not in a religious struggle against religious leaders, trying to prove to them that Moses, the law and the Sabbath, was no longer binding. We will seek to prove that the conflict in the field on the Sabbath was not a religious confrontation, but a confrontation dealing with the social political science of a class of people, who were poor and oppressed.
Poor people with a poor mindset have convinced themselves that the rich get that way by being greedy. The truth is that the most successful and wealthy people on earth got there by having a generous spirit. This week we’ll talk with Josh and Lisa Lannon (The Social Capitalist) about having a generous spirit, building wealth by doing good and the greed of those with a poor mindset.

Welfare, Medicaid, HUD and other government programs have provided the poor with food, shelter, health care and education. But isn't this the job of the CHURCH? Tthe bible says in James 1:27 that, "27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.".

Internationally renowned artist and author Balazs Szabo joins Daria Anne to talk about his third book 'Rich Artist, Poor Artist.'
The show will explore the hardships that many working Americans face daily earning minimum pay. These Americans are often victims of systematic forms of usary and encounter difficulties rising above poverty lines. Does God have a plan or are christians supposed to remain in poverty? It is often said that Jesus was made poor so that we might become rich. What does that mean for us as Christians today? Jesus also said that the poor would be with us always, so how do we distinguish between that scripture and what God wants us to have? We will examine ways to transform the lives of the working poor while exploring the biblical principles of tithing, giving and receiving.
Of course you know that poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase the criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans.
