Jesus was not poor, so why does the Church say He was?

When discussing if Jesus’ was poor prior to and during his ministry, the immediate response I have received over the past five years is as follows:

The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no where to lay his head - Matthew 8:20

I came across the information below which seems to make complete sense; however, I am confused as to why so many Church leaders quote the same Scripture yet view it completely differently than below?

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

When it comes to praying should we do it in silence and if so how is it different to thinking?

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

Sometimes we have to look backwards to know that we're moving forwards in the right direction.

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Twenty years ago I had a quadruple heart bypass.  Ten years ago I was told by a cardiac consultant to stop drinking alcohol and lose 30kgs.  In the same year 2006, I came up with an idea for a book and a new business.

If you take a look at the About pages you can find out a bit more about my background, but in a nutshell, I've been self-employed since 1987 in the business to business arena.

If Christianity is Relevant to Business, then where should I Start?

Why should I care about who Jesus is and what he did.

If Christianity is Relevant to Business, then where should I Start?

The world is full of noise and distractions, which means who ever shouts the loudest gets heard. So when it comes to faith, business people have been bludgeoned in to thinking they should ignore faith because they’re too intelligent and too busy for all that and are therefore particularly adept at side-stepping anything to do with faith.

For me, I look at this faith "thing" as good from God and bad from satan. Continue reading and see what you think by the end...
