To Fight Against the Cost To Human Dignity

"In whatever sector of society Christian faith exists, it sets out to fight against the cost to human dignity that selfishness has enacted. It teaches the wealthy to be generous and to have a proper view of the privileges and responsibilities that come with financial success. When wealth is used properly and those who have it demonstrate humility, the inequalities of life are less bitter to those who do not possess it.  On the other hand, for those who live in less-affluent circumstances, authentic faith teaches diligence, patience, industry and a recognition that the faithful execution of their responsibilities is to be done without envy of the rich or bitterness toward their own state. " – William Wilberforce,  The Current State of Christianity,  Real Christianity
