I don’t think modern Christians are particularly against poverty, but I think that the idea is strange to many of them. Jesus did say, “if you want to be perfect…” sell all your possessions. For many in the middle ages, poverty was thought of as being a necessary step on the journey to Christian perfection. They would renounce their possessions and get the minimum requirements by begging.
I don’t like the idea of begging. I think it is wrong to beg from anyone especially unbelievers. Personally, I don’t like the idea of charity status or getting government grants. It is dangerous to be in the pocket of anyone, especially unbelievers. A recent example is St Paul’s, London cialis rezeptfrei legal.

In matters of money people like C.T. Studd and George Muller are influential today, especially for charismatics. They think of having faith for whatever you need each day. This however can lead to people being very wasteful. They get say £10,000 and blow it all in one go expecting new reserves to come tomorrow.
