"He that hath not..."

He that hath not...

1. In the New Testament, there is the passage where the Lord Jesus says something such as "He that hath not shall have even that which he hath, taken away."

2. Plausibly, what was meant by that, could have been that he who has not gained more than he had had originally, after which when he was instructed to obtain more, that he would have even that which he had had before, that that would be taken away from him and that it should be given to someone else; the someone else who happened to have ten minas; which was plausibly more than the poor man had who had feared to invest the Lord's money, more than that, that he had by himself, by his own money earning efforts.

3. Perhaps our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was not being mean and saying that there would be giving what little a poor person has, to a richer person;

But rather, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may have been indicating a lamentation over the way it seems to happen so much of the time in ordinary life:

Those who have more, they seem to get more (even if it is only that with more money, items at the store can be purchased at a discount, if enough money is available to buy at the discount prices that are sometimes available for larger-sized quantity purchases).

4.  It is also conceivable that persons may inadvertantly or otherwisely steal from the poor and give to the rich; although this is considered as a sin according to The Holy Bible.

5.  From the Bible Gateway website of the Internet, here is Proverbs 22:16, New King James Version (NKJV), a verse that seems related to these principles:


Proverbs 22:16, NKJV :
"He who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, And he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty."
