On Lord Christ

"Truly I say to you that this poor widow has cast in more than all those... For all they cast in out of their surplus, but she, out of her lack, has cast in all she had, her whole living" (Mark 12 : 43)
Passages such as this high-light Christ's egalitarian devotion to the poor. Sadly, many modern Christians and pastors neglect this central aspect of Christ's teaching.
I've encountered the spirit of Christ and the feeling was divinely beautiful ,but some what fleeting. I suspect he's searching for a human worthy of merging with him and becoming the promised re-incarnation of Christ... but that's just my suspicion.
To get back to the Christ we know from the New Testament, he over-turned the merchants' tables in the temple, rejecting spiritual capitalism, and taught devotion to the poor as the entrance fee to his Kingdom of Heaven. There's been a lot of misunderstanding when you have American evangelists lining up on the right and supporting programs that devastate the poor.
