Jesus stated that there will always be poverty, yet liberals repeatedly insist that poverty can be eliminated with more government spending. Every attempt to eliminate poverty has failed just as Jesus predicted.
My two cents
Yes, I think it’s true. Regarding the phrasing, it’s one thing to say that Jesus predicted it, but one can read that to mean the outcome may be uncertain. It may be more accurate to say that he prophesied it. Either way, would Al Gore admit that Conservapedia’s view on poverty constitutes an inconvenient truth?
