Marxism says that religion in general and Christianity in particular is a tool of the rich to keep the poor in their place. The myth is: Christianity oppresses the poor. Biblical truth presents a different picture and history sustains it. God has deliberately chosen the poor of the world to accomplish his plan to the shame of the rich and powerful. This scriptural reality ought to compel us to a different attitude toward the poor and needy.
