In a way, ...I won't say 'Politicians', but those who control money, who print it out of thin air... When money is essentially worthless... And almost all of society bases someone's status or worth on how much money they "make". This system gives everyone the illusion that we have what we need, that we are "blessed" in an abundance of material things.
Why do we need jobs? To feed, clothe, and shelter ourselves. But I'll mainly focus on food - since that is something that is needed everyday. If we had access to food without having to "Pay" for it - then we really wouldn't need jobs/occupations. Like, a garden or farm for animals as food sources. That would be our only "Job". Tending our personal food sources. These things could be considered as being provided by God. There are a LOT of things we don't need to survive, things provided by the world.
So, here we have a society based on monetary value and exchange. All based on something worthless. Those that control the money control the masses... And, in a way, have set themselves up as "God". They've made something out of nothing. Then you have to ask yourself; Who am I putting my trust in? Man or God? Well, one could say that God uses Man to help others. I'm not saying we should refuse all help or never take advantage of what's available to us. God is the true source of all that we would need or want. No need to thank man, only God.
On another note... Yeah, you did get preachy there, but that's fine. It's your God given right to express yourself. ...and it's also the God given right of others to voice their disagreement of your views - whether they like it or not (on it being a God given right). Yet, I suppose the only barbs in your remarks is when you put down anyone else. ...That's how a lot of 'non-believers' see those that profess God and living a holy life as "self-righteous". I wonder, would they call a math professor (something like) "self-matheous"? ...Saying things like "you can't tell me how to add!"
No. There's a point to living a "Holy Life", righteous or morally upright. It avoids a LOT of trouble and heartache in life. It really does have benefits. As well as being a comfort in (if/when) you truly put all of your trust in the Creator. Non-believers would call this being delusional, or believing what someone else told them. Which immediately begs the question of who did they listen to to NOT believe in God? Maybe they would say they worked this out on their own. Perhaps Christians did as well. Anyway, I can say those that deny the existence of a creator are in denial of what should be perfectly clear and evident. I guess that's why I believe. Although that shouldn't be why. You must first believe, then all these other things will be added (or revealed) to you. Chicken/Egg, Egg/Chicken.
Speaking of politics. I'm voting for Ron Paul. After W. Bush I consider myself an Independent. Still very conservative though. Not a "Republican"... Only because of the people in it's party. The war-mongering, big-business types.
