One reason we will always have the poor is because we will always have people whom quite naturally want to keep what they have and whom wont give half of what they have for a variety of reasons. Jesus knows what is in men's hearts.

Even Jesus couldn't perform miracles in his own hometown because of their unbelief.


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

So which is it? Is nothing impossible, like the eradication of poverty or will the poor always be with us?


Instantaneous eradication of poverty is possible but creation of poverty is an ongoing process. You might as well ask if it's possible to prevent earthquakes. Hypothetically, a world could have been created with no earthquakes and no poverty - but it wasn't.
