So Richie, are you an atheist or a believer?
If I were an atheist, we wouldn't be having this conversation in the first place!
Then why don’t you participate in charity events to support the needy?
I only worsen the poor people’s misery. For Proverbs 22:7 is clear, the rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
If you were keen with the bible, 1 John 3:17 explains: But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him
My top priority is to amass wealth so that I can create job opportunities for those below me.
St.Basil engages Richie, a prominent NY businessman, on a discussion about the role of Christians on poverty alleviation.
When you hoard all these things in the insatiable bosom of greed, do you suppose you do no wrong in cheating so many people?
I think you confuse greed with ambition and ingenuity.
Who is a man of greed? Someone who does not rest content with what is sufficient.
Should I be judged for being a resilient, ambitious and determined individual? Poverty exists because not everyone can harbor these personalities.
So if I may ask, Why are you wealthy while that other man is poor?
I believe in hard work. For Proverbs 10: 4 says A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. Should I be crucified for being diligent?
The conversation ends with a dissatisfied St.Basil and an indifferent Richie who believes that poverty is not a social issue, rather he sees it as an individual's lack of effort to pursue wealth.
