Income inequality is a dominant theme in New Testament Bible verses. The Gospel of Wealth or Poverty? How Do Bible Verses about Jesus, Wealth, Poverty, and Heaven Affect Your Income? connects your financial status and your biblical beliefs. The question mark in the title challenges an either/or choice between wealth or poverty based on Bible verses.
Wealth and poverty are significant themes in the Bible. If you focus on isolated Bible verses, you can claim that God wants you to be poor. You can also claim that God wants you to rich. But neither argument can be justified if you go beyond the verses and read whole stories set in their original social, economic, political, and religious contexts.
