A few Biblical thoughts before Greensboro City Council’s lobbyist vote; What would Jesus do?

You shall not oppress your neighbor,
nor rob him.

Leviticus 19:13

How are taxpayers not being robbed and oppressed
if Downtown Greensboro Inc., the Greensboro Partnership,
and Greensboro’s City Council hire a lobbyist
that may directly benefit some members
of Downtown Greensboro and the Greensboro Partnership?

But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation,
into a snare,
into many senseless and harmful desires
that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

Timothy 6:9

Could fleecing many taxpayers to benefit a few of the elite
not be what many in the middle east are protesting against?
