How does James say the rich have lived?


"You have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; you have nourished your hearts, as in a day of
slaughter." James 5: 5.
NOTE - This indicates that they have lived in luxury and for pleasure, quite heedless of the needs
of the poor and of the great world about them. They have lived simply to have a good time themselves,
with no thought of their responsibility to God or to their fellow men. Christ was without worldly riches, yet
as the Maker of earth and sea, He provided tribute money by bidding Peter to catch a fish, and find the
money in its mouth.
