I want to make it clear that I am not preaching AT You ! I am a 'Saved Sinner man' and still working hard on my own personality flaws and imperfections --- but won't ever be perfect while I live and breath on planet earth. But rather, I am SHARING some good, positive things with my friends, buddies, followers, and brothers in Christ [and that of course also means SISTERS IN CHRIST]. Frankly, I would much rather be fore warned about frightful things to come --- that MUST come in the near future. And guess what, all it would take is some real [or imagined] national or world calamity to unleash "the dogs of war," --big time !
I would also guess that most of the older Republicans and the rest of Congress have already figured out that America cannot exist on promised monetary notes, I.O.U.'s, and American dollars without any silver or gold back up ! I had a blue chip education in Finance and know how "Compound Interest" can eat up every dime you have and reduce you to the poverty level, over night !! Soon, we will not even be able to pay the interest on our loans, nor pay out benefits to the poor, who choose NOT to work !! And when this happens we will mostly be in hot water, with the natives adding carrots, onions and celery to the soup ! Soon our nation will not have the luxury of printing more money in the back room and will have to pay the piper ! Been there -- done that, too. No smiles.
I don't always set a good example either, fiscally. There are a lot of "IF's" in our culture... like my Chrysler benefits and Gov't VA stuff hanging in the balance. WHAT IF: those wells run dry because of poor over sight, or what ever ? Many of us will be S.O.L.
Best to live simple and follow the Bible, IMHO.
But if our Faith in some religious system is built on sand, we will lose EVERYTHING in the next life! And so the scripture: 'What good is it to gain the world, but lose out on ever lasting life ?'
Let us share this info, please.
Thank you, Ruth.
