The Ismlessism and money.

There is no such thing as a rich Ismlessist, in fact the poorer the Ismlessist the better. Poverty is the whole point of the Ismlessism. In theory you can be the highest ranking Ismlessist priest (or whatever) and be the poorest. Ismlessists do not venerate wealth or wealthy Ismlessists. I am not saying that you have to get rid of your money, just that Ismlessists don’t care about it. I get around £850 a month from disability benefits. Therefore, like Buddhism and its Middle Way, the Ismlessism does not believe in an abundance of possessions, but in not caring about wealth. Therefore, the Ismlessist believes in the ancient, universal and fundamental morality of compassionate charity, asceticism and poverty, which all religions of the world teach, including Judaism, Buddhism and Christianity etc. There are many scriptural examples, however, the parable of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is a good one. Therefore, the Ismlessist believes that there is reward in charity and that God and heaven reward those who are generous or charitable etc.

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24

Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” Luke 12:15

“Give, even if you only have a little.” – Buddha
