Birthday of "God of Wealth" celebrated in China

A performer acts as an avatar [sic] of the "God of Wealth" in Chinese mythology on a ancient stage at the Shantang Street in Suzhou, east China’s Jiangsu Province, Feb. 18, 2010. A folk performance was held here to celebrate the birthday of the "God of Wealth", which is traditionally believed to be the fifth day of the Chinese lunar New Year and fell on Feb. 18 this year.

People gather at Guiyuan Temple to worship the "God of Wealth" in Chinese mythology in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei Province, Feb. 17, 2010. Some 550-thousand people came here to pray for fortune between late Feb. 17 and early Feb. 18, on the birthday of the "God of Wealth", which is traditionally believed to be the fifth day of the Chinese lunar New Year and fell on Feb. 18 this year.

    Q: “What do even the Communist Chinese know that the anti-capitalists in the Obama administration do not?”

    A: Wealth good, poverty bad.

    So simple, even a caveman can do it.

    Amazing. Calling Washington DC.

    Luke 6:24 “But woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full.

    Luke 18:11 “The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

    Why do the wicked live and become old, yes, become mighty in power? Their descendants are established with them in their sight, and their offspring before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them. Their bull breeds without failure; their cow calves without miscarriage. They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. They sing to the tambourine and harp, and rejoice to the sound of the flute. They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment [in peace, Moffatt] go down to the grave. (Job 21:7-13)

    This question pops up in the Psalms as well: “Lord, how long will the wicked, how long will the wicked triumph?” (Psalm 94:3).
