The Belhar Confession states that God is in a special sense the God of the poor, and champions their cause. According to Mt 24, we are God's managers on earth,who must place people before money. On the basis of this a theological perspective is developed on unemployment as economic injustice. This concurs with views expressed at various recent anti-poverty campaigns in South Africa.
