It's the law of returns. If I throw trash in your yard, you can come beat me up. This makes two negatives. If you decide to throw the trash away
instead, you have cancelled my negative. The best of all is to create more positive. If you throw your trash away, then come clean my yard, you have
created more positive than the negative I created. I am then likely to never throw trash in anyone's yard again out of honor for the kindness on your
The Bible calls negative acts sin. This is based on a person's will to receive, give or take.
If a person has the will to receive, he can also give what is received. We all have desire, but we don't all give back. When we only have the will
to receive and not give, we are really only expressing the will to take. Our current society is locked into the pholosophy of Any Rand and
Objectivism. This is the will to take. What is taken will then trickle down to others. There is a problem in this.
If you smoke, you get cancer. This is because the will to take a reward that is not earned overrides the will to give. When we take a reward,
suffering follows. Cancer follows smoking. To verify this, the opposite can be seen. If I refuse to smoke, I am suffering without what I desire. I
can then suffer more with exercise. In the end, I am creating health by reducing my debt. I must give to make this happen. If my family is to
receive the reward of my labor, I need to suffer work. By doing this, they benefit. I am creating positive, but giving something of value for it.
Work is a value that gives to the one who suffers the labor and then extends to others. The reward I take causes suffering for me and others as well.
It works both ways.
How can this heal the world? Jesus showed the example. Two negatives multiplied make a positive. Have you ever wondered why two things of negative
value can equal more positive than when you started? This is how it works.
In mathematics, if you owe three people $10, then you are negative $30 (3 X -10 = $-30). If the lenders then say, "We forgive you for this debt
because we love you," then you are free from that debt by another negative. You have just had three subtractions of -10, making you three positives
of $10 (-3 X -$10). Your debt is -30 + 30 = Zero. This is because someone else worked for the reward and then applied what they give up to your debt.
Jesus died a horrible death to pay our debt, walking us back to a positive value.
We simply do the same by loving others and working for them instead of ourselves. Love heals the debt created by sin and covers that sin by the
bounty of what has been give to us.
The idea is to only have the will to give.
Why do we have a 15 trillion dollar debt in this country, with the Federal Reserve possessing 9 trillion of this in lost money? They have not
accounted for 9 trillion. Know why? They took it. Their will to take is their reward. The later reward is not given because they will be found to
be thieves. Jesus condemned the moneychangers and overturned their tables in the first century. This is a foreshadowing of our day and age.
Their financial tables have been turned. Debt must be suffered by the one who creates it or paid by the one who loves you. We accept the gift with
our will to receive. No one will forgive an unrepentant moneychanger.
