From an economic standpoint, China seems to be doing a good job in balancing growth. Preventing their population from reaching 3 billion people, as it would have, averted economic disaster.

The parable of the tallons showed people making profits and being rewarded. The one who did not work was scorned. We are given different gifts by God to use in building His kingdom. The people in control of the monitary and fiscal policies foday , and much of the last century, are manipulating things to hoard everything they can for themselves. Their kingdom is here on earth not in heaven.
No fear on the population. With abortion everywhere the population of the world is going to tank in the next few decades! There are 30,000 men in China with NO women to marry.

China might look good, but what do the hidden facts say? How can a liar be trusted? There is so much being lied about we have no idea how bad things are anywhere. Washington D.C. included.
The only way out is to once again trust in God. Working n His Will we will prosper and the abundance he provides, see the multiplication of the loaves parables, are mean to be shared. God is God of life. Most today worship death, abortion. They are bound to fail.
