Depends on what Christianity you are talking about. Christians are to learn to see that the poor bear the image of God, thus worthy of our respect. Not primarily that we get rich for doing so, but surely it is also a promise.

You will find that the Poor was treated rather well in Ancient Rome, Julius Caesar donated lots of Grain, Bread and Fish to the poor people of Rome, Nero Caesar also gave to the Poor, and rehoused all the people that perished in the fire of Rome, the Roman-Greek authors understood that the Gods are Metaphors, they just used them as Artistic Expressions, entertainment and as Moral guardians
Ah, socialism, the surest way to corrupt the morality of a society.

I don't think you understand Metaphors or Morals


A metaphor is a literary figure of speech that uses an image, story or tangible thing to represent a less tangible thing or some intangible quality or idea;

A moral (from Latin morālis) is a message conveyed or a lesson to be learned from a story or event. The moral may be left to the hearer, reader or viewer to determine for themselves, or may be explicitly encapsulated in a maxim.
Well no, I read it as a rule of morality.
