tho it may not be a laughing matter:
Are you calling me a “Gold Digger?"
I had to chuckle as I drove the kids home from school and those words came to me. I have thought of your words alot of the day...but have been on the run most of it.
Is a thief considered a non-violent offender? I have to ask, because unfortunately we have had a thief in our church. Stole the church offering, stole from church people both in their homes and at the church. Tried to break into our 90 year old widows home. He tried to break into our home as well. Tried to break into the church, stole from walmart, broke into my boy’s Christian School etc etc etc. He is back in prison. I am sorry for him and his family. It grieves me, and yet I am glad he cannot try to break into our homes any more. He could get hurt or hurt someone, tho he is barely a man...probably older than I give him credit for these days now that I am hitting the 50 mark. There is a drug connection.
I don’t know that I am on all of Josf’s pages, but he has been helpful to me to understand what is going on. He has been willing to listen to the Gospel as well as hear Scripture. I pray that he will have eyes to see and ears to hear the Word of God. I think his views are interesting.
The Word says:
• 1 Timothy 6:10 KJV
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after , they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
• Matthew 6:24 KJV
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
I do think that the love of money is the key to finding the evil. I think that when you talk about Jesus and “The World” that perhaps part of the characteristics of the world is the service of mammon. I think that there is great power to be had in our nation and I think that those that love money love to wield that power to gain more power. A lot of those in congress entertain lobbies more than they entertain the wishes of the people. It is a power struggle and I think Josf’s viewpoint may be correct. The criminals have made laws to make their crime legal so that they can steal more power.
Josf spreads the message:
End the Fed
End the IRS
Bring the Troops Home
He does this with a Liberty Day Challenge http://www.dailypaul.com/259985/liberty-day-challenge-july-4... whereby he suggests that we figure out how to have our own competitive forms of money for exchange and quit funding the criminals and using their money.
I am not afraid of everything anymore. Understanding what is going on has given me a sense of peace. Josf has been willing to answer and re-answer questions until I understand.
You my friend are able to work with people in groups of people to achieve great things. That is a gift. I am lacking that gift. I tend to be more of a do it myself person and leave me out of the committees or group think. I don’t like that about myself, but it is how I am wired. I appreciate all that you are doing in the GOP.
I think Josf was just saying that though Biden and Obama look like they don’t know what they are doing…don’t be fooled…they know exactly what they are doing…and they are doing the bidding of those that have placed them in their positions of power.
We don’t have any of those no drilling and no war stickers here. I am in the rural Midwest. I do see Obama stickers every now and then. And when I am in Overland Park Kansas I see some coexist stickers. I am probably out of tune with the rest of America. We still have Ron Paul stickers on our vehicles and I do like Rand and hope that he is able to run as I would like to vote for him.
I am sorry to have butted in on your conversation today. I appreciate you my friend and know that you are doing a good work…as a matter of fact as I say that I realize I should say many good works! I admire you!
