  How Rich Is the Catholic Church? It's Impossible to Tell. Journalist Paul Vallely, who has written several books about the Pope, said on NPR of . Amos The prophet pronounces God's judgment. Notice the many parallels to Babylon and Laodicea.

A central aspect of the ethical teaching in the book of James is proper treatment of the poor. James commands the care of widows and orphans, in he commands the elders to care for the sick in their churches. James warns his readers that the wealthy ought not treat the poor with contempt. Teachers of what is commonly called “The Health and Wealth Gospel” or “The Word of Faith Movement” say that Christians can experience perfect health and abounding wealth if only they exercise the right kind of faith. This dangerous and unbiblical teaching has become immensely popular in churches today.

Wealth of churches vs the wealth of people There has always been a tension between the wealth of a church and the wealth of its congregation, from the Middle Ages until present day. The combined imperial wealth and ecclesiastical/episcopal wealth created newly constructed sacred spaces which worshippers were led to identify with the heavenly Jerusalem of the Apocalypse, built of gold, pearls, and precious gems.
