    I guess it depends on the translation. The passage means if a person doesn't want to work. It's not addressing people who cannot work.

    In relation to doing what is good and right in God's eyes, such as feeding the poor, caring for the sick, the elderly, and children - basically loving and caring for your fellow man - yes. Failing to do this kind of work makes man unworthy of a reward.

    From the bullshit ideas of people in power using scripture to promote modern day slavery where the rich are made richer and the poor poorer, no.

    2 Thessalonians 3:10 says "For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat."

      My NRSV says "... Anyone unwilling to work..." My guess is you have a older translation. Notice your translation says "will not," not "cannot." "Will" can also express desire as in "Do what you will, (want)."
