Well what do you think of a witness for Jehovah answering a question about why people are poor, By simply saying those who are poor bring it?
ON themselves, yes one of those who answered the question Do you Think the poor are just bad at money management, put a link to a Witness article all about how stupid and evil all poor lottery winners seem to be, because only a few years after winning millions they seem to all end up broke.
So just remember folks no matter how poor (or just far from wealthy they are) the witnesses don't believe the almighty god Jehovah thinks you can call you whole start in life a lottery.

what do you THINK of a person who identifies as a JW providing his or her EXPLANATION WHY people are poor , that it is SELF IMPOSED .....
1- to DIRECT ones mind to actively FORM connected IDEAS
2- to form an opinion, belief or idea about some THING ( event statement action ) examining the questions as to the ASSERTION that a INDIVIDUAL made certain statements and cited a particular ARTICLE ( no link to read it for myself nor could i readily find in in the JW LIBRARY ) ... the supposed premise is
how STUPID and EVIL ALL "POOR" LOTTERY WINNERS
REALITY is NOT ALL LOTTERY winners become POOR after winning the lottery
the question nor the assertion nor supposed proposition has caused me to to be CONVINCED of anything presented nor that its a DOCTRINE ( set of beliefs taught by JW ) that POVERTY is SELF imposed actually reading the JW library there are many articles to the contrary sighting systemic RACISM systemic economic inequality as contributing factors to poverty .. i am an atheist
upon evaluation it was possibly a individuals who identifies as a JW made an ASSOCIATION and formed a personal OPINION expressed in a article and used as a basis of a response to a question and not a DOCTRINE .
... to imply its a DOCTRINE of JW is DISINGENUOUS
thank you for the question

What you described isn't how they are.

What in the world are you talking about? I've never heard a Jehovah's Witness say that. People are poor for various reasons, some are born into poverty, others have circumstances that's thrown them into poverty, but NOBODY is poor because they want to be....that's absurd and a lie.
Would you choose to be poor?

They blame the poor just like they blame child sexual abuse victims.
That's what cults do.

It's not as if he arrived at that (or any) idea independently. Just something copy pasted from his cult's website.

It is certainly a misunderstanding poor people can be as happy as anyone else.

so are you saying that poor people are not responsible for their lack of money? then how did THEY get poor while the rest of us get by?
you may say the rich screwed them out of it, but how? free will does still exist, and these people were not ALWAYS poor, so you explain to me how they fidn't get that way by making bad decisions...
and yes, buying a lottery ticket IS A BAD DECISION.
think of how many people have NEVER WON more than double digits...which they then promptly spend on...guess what? more losing tickets! how is that not bad decision-making, and therefore "not their fault"?

It seems the religious love to blame the victim. What about someone who is poor because her husband drained all the bank accounts and ran off with his mistress, leaving his stay-at-home wife with four kids to feed somehow? Or the person who gets too sick to keep working? Or the family with a child who has severe medical needs that cost thousands of dollars a month that often has to choose between medicine and food? Or the young person who lost his minimum wage job in the pandemic and has nothing to fall back on? The lack of compassion among the religious is shameful.
