Thanks everyone to your replies. This is to honor your replies.
I agree with you but there are boundaries set in this regards. Are you treating your financial blessings that people see it that you HATE them? Are
you giving away too much that your loved ones begin to hate you for they think you don't care much for them? Even if you do this as a businessman,
trust, me, even your employees will hate you.
Jesus, warns against the pursuit of Earthly riches and its perils. That if you truly love God, you will HATE money. Notice that it doesn't mention
in the Bible about Satan or worshipping God and hating Satan or vice versa. I'll explain in the next paragraphs:
I believe we all know about the 'Satanic Organizations' we have in conspiracy literature, like the Illuminati, Freemasons, Hollywood, Music
Industry, Silicon Valley, etc. What do they have in common??? Blatant and obvious 666 or pentagram symbols? NO. Maybe yes in fine print or obscure
symbols too obscure to be noticed and those doesn't count. But their desire and plans to accumulate WEALTH, power/control, fame and notice how they
love to recruit the rich, famous, and powerful in their ranks... This is what makes them all one and the same evil.
The Bible is right on the money that is the root of all evil. Jesus made no mention of the 'Church of Satan' because it would not exist. The evil
forces in this world are smart, they won't hide behind for what they truly are but in money!! - the very thing that every man lusts for! They had to
do this because the Truth is so powerful and permeating that if they show themselves up as they are, most people would probably live the Truth!
I could see that most Christian Churches nowadays have varying degrees of compromise in teaching the 'Prosperity Gospel' so they don't lose all
their members and profits.
I see this even in my local churches. So I don't trust that the answer they will give is according to the truth. But still I'll have to ask them
at some point.
If your dad is reaching out to family and friends out of his Love for God, walking in God's will, preaching the truth with all his strength,
resources, and abilities, which is the Love and salvation of God, reaching out to the lost, helping people in their sufferings, satisfying the
hungry/thirsty and not the love of money, financial status, career, etc, then I don't see how that can be wrong. Some/most people will hate him I
tell you that, but the ending will be good and people saved.
The mission field is not just any place in a 3rd world country. It could also start with people around you, people close to you. Believe me, if you
do it right out of love of God, and the lost without deliberately trying to annoy people, people will hate you for it, especially if you're trying to
win people who are financially well and enjoying their lives. They will hate you, because one will want to HATE their financial well-being and
material things they have accumulated in life!
But also hear this. If no one will reach out to the most dangerous and most depressed regions of this Earth, with the message of Truth, and
salvation, and a helping hand, who will? Sometimes, it's not about the reward, but can you live your life in comfort knowing that other people are
living torturous lives, in great suffering and stress and you could have made a huge difference if you acted now?
To be honest, I have not done anything related to missions outreach yet, I have just been starting and starting to get people to hate, even my loved
ones! I've been a Christian for many years and not exactly young at over 30 years of age , but only recently has God shown me the truth in my
desperation - because now I know how it feels to be desperate, to be poor, to be plagued by enormous stress and suffering. It is in my desperate
situation, I seeked the truth and God showed me.
Now I couldn't live without doing anything about other's who may suffering greatly and nobody's doing anything about it. I realized material
wealth is not everything, it's not even remotely, the solution to any problem, even to physical/natural/technological problems(this part I've known
for practicing sustainability engineering/research), most of the time in fact, it is a curse!
Hope no one gives up, hope you don't give up. Life is complicated but this is what Jesus has to say:
Matthew 11:28-30 28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am
gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
You are not alone, I'm still figuring that part out.
Prosperity is not always synomous with material wealth, I agree with you!
Agree with you too, with Annunaki concepts, etc. Believe I read all this stuff, not just the Bible, for truth's sake. Unfortunately I ran out of
