God tells us through the pen of His Apostle Paul, that if one will not work, he should not eat. Teach a man to fish and he will eat forever, give a man a fish and he will eat a meal.
God Himself, has said, through the pen of His faithful Apostle Paul, "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, 'that if any would not work, neither should he eat.'" 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Folks, let me tell you, I am getting sick and tired of people whining about running out of unemployment money, not enough food stamp money, being unable to find a job, etc. I am just plain sick and tired of it. It is time for people to stand on their own two feet. There are tons of commission jobs out there. There are tons of heavy things that could be manufactured locally that, because of shipping weight, almost have to be made locally. Laid off carpenters can make wooden toys and furniture. Laid off electricians and plumbers can use their skills to earn a decent living as self employed men and women. They can do as my wife and I, they can be representatives of Melaleuca.
But while I am getting sick and tired of people whining, I realize why they cry, why they whine, and who they serve. Folks, communism, fascism, and the other ways of life that demand something for nothing, are not of God, but of the devil. Those who put their faith, their dependency, their very survival in government programs, government handouts, the taking from one group who work and giving to those who don't, are not of God, but of the devil.
And while it gets harder and harder to feel sorry for them, feel sorry for them and pray for them we must. Especially for those who live in societies that still allow for independent actions. Societies like the US, Europe, and most of the Far East.... societies that still allow a man to go door to door to clean windows, offer to cut wood for a meal, do something to support themself and their family.
Christ has told us that we are to ask God to "forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors." He tells us that God will judge us by the same balances that we judge others "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." Christ has told us that "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your God the Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will God the Father forgive your trespasses."
So, you see, while we can get sick and tired of the whining, we cannot turn a blind eye towards those that whine and cry. We must pray for them, we must offer them a way out, we must be willing to teach them to fish, instead of giving them a fish and then turning from their other needs. We must do this even when those who serve Christ stand in our way, and oppose or hinder us because we may make a penny or two off those we help. I can, and will, literally help anyone to do as Cecily and I are doing with Melaleuca. No one need be totally reliant on the government. No one needs to give up and grovel at the feet of the devil.
Just as Jesus died so that all would have a clear path, a clear way out of eternal damnation and into eternal bliss with Him, so must we as Christians, who are willing to teach to fish instead of just giving a fish, be willing to offer to help those who serve satan both to learn about the Lord and His path to freedom and help them stand on their own two feet and get free of government redistribution of wealth. For if we don't, we are not serving our Lord Christ Jesus, but the evil one.
And as for those who claim to be Christians, but who stand in the way of the whiners, the criers, the dependant upon government, from getting out of that trap, I say to you, why? Why do you stand in the way? Why do you discourage instead of helping? Why do you judge me and others that want to see people free of government dependance, communism, fascism, serving the prince of darkness? Are you sure it is Christ you serve?
