Do not covet

If anyone has morally forbidden envy ("covet your neighbor's goods"), is also unable to find similar distributional inequalities.

In the article entitled Dineropsi Economic inequalities (1), I say :

"If the majority of humans professes Christian ideas and organize your life to achieve eternal life in the final judgment, then we can assume that most people try to improve their earthly life individually, ie, to be achieved (for himself and family), which will allow a dignified existence, not caring very little inequality".

Christians who devote their effort to find individual solutions to access what they really care about, that is, "to gain eternal life at the Last Judgment" are fulfilling the Tenth Commandment, which says:

"Do not covet."

This Commandment is directly intended to inhibit, block or neutralize envy.

This feeling, which leads us to wanting to see Seizure 's goods, is severely criticized by Christian morality. Seems so despicable that no atman to think long about it.

Envy, when viewed with serenity, lets us know what we can reasonably aspire as the like already have what they need.

Not always envious conform to destroy the happiness of others not to suffer the inconvenience of envy. Some feel envious healthy encouraged to work to get those others have already achieved.

However, if you read carefully the first paragraph, we see that the repudiation of envy is what keeps Christians uninterested in inequality, because to perceive distributive injustice must see and feel others are better. If anyone has morally forbidden envy ("covet your neighbor's goods"), is also unable to find some like to be better than others.

Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google):  No codiciarás los bienes ajenos.
