Grassroots >> Did not Jesus reach out to those who were considered the dregs of society?

Jesus did NOT tell poor people to take money from rich people. This is what he did say...

Matthew 17:18-20

18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"

20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Did you get that? Jesus is telling us that we succeed or fail by how strong our FAITH is. Therefore, if we believe that we have abundance, we do. If we believe that money is in short supply and that we need to take it from others, we actually create poverty in our life.

As far as the Connaught proposal goes, I believe that this is but a first step in making the downtown a livelier and more fun place to live. Throw in lots of great jobs, lower tax rates, higher disposable incomes and downtown Hamilton will be something the city can be proud of.
