    How much clearer can it be stated? The difficulty is in the fact that the dishonest do not see themselves as such. Using God-gifted resources to live in a manner well above our needs (and even a few wants) rather than sharing that excess with our brothers and sisters is dishonest. Landlords charging exorbitant rents because the “market” can handle it is another way to keep our brothers and sisters poor. When we finally choose to look out for others rather than scramble to get excessive gain for ourselves, we will be on our way to Zion.

    It is true if there are to be no poor among the inhabitants of Zion then there likewise cannot be any rich among them either. Both are comparative words. One is poor compared to someone who is rich and vice a versa. When as a people we decide to no longer care for the things of this world and the values, attitudes, and standards of this telestial world then we will be ready to be part of Zion, inwardly first, then outwardly.
