For the Love of Money

If you take a careful look at all the evils that we suffer right now, you’ll find a love of money at the very heart. Yes, there are other evils mixed in, but the very foundation of these events is greed. And, since power and money are essentially the same thing, to speak of one is to speak of the other.

The Democrats, the Republicans, the BLM movement, George Soros, China, the Catholics, Corrupt Bible Translations, Neo-Nazis, Antifa, Pornography, Gay Rights, and even Baptists like Jerry Falwell… all have the love of money at the root of their evil.

The Top Ten Videos for August 28th, 2020

————————————

It probably does not surprise you that my big mouth got me kicked out of high school. I didn’t like being told what to believe, so I pushed back when they tried. They didn’t like it, so they told me to leave and never come back.

It actually was a good thing, since it gave me an excuse to skip the last two years of high school and go straight to college. All of which allows me to claim that I’m a high school drop out with an MBA.

Fortunately, when I went to university, I learned to keep my mouth shut in the classroom. (Yeah, I know. A miracle.) And, if I had a chance to talk to my teenage self all those years ago, I would have told myself to shut up and stop making mountains out of mole hills. (Which I am very good at doing.)

Unfortunately, none of that is why I was kicked out of high school. The reason why they threw me out was because I was a threat to the power and money of the administration. Worse, they used lies and dirty tricks to get me to shut up, before eventually getting rid of me.

It was evil.

Worse, it was a Baptist school.

That’s right. It was a supposedly Christian school that used lies and dirty tricks to try and keep me in line. And, that was my first real experience with corruption in our churches. It was not the last.

All of that explains why I am not surprised by recent revelations of corrupt and horrifying behavior by Jerry Falwell Jr. And, I can tell you that there are so many like him in positions of leadership of Christian churches and organizations, that it would shock you to find out.

I have been a Christian for 47 years. I have attended a lot of churches around the world. All of those churches were corrupt. All of them, except two – and maybe a third. And yes, let me emphasize that.

ALL OF THOSE CHURCHES WERE CORRUPT.

Except two or three.

And, the only reason why those two or three churches were not corrupt – as far as I can tell – was due to their small size. Having said that, I found myself in a couple churches that were both small AND corrupt, so size isn’t the only thing.

However, every church that I have attended that was about 100 members and above, were all – without exception – corrupt in some vital and important way. And, all of their corruption was directly connected to money and power.

Yeah, there were other sins involved. There was arrogance, pride, adultery, pornography, dishonesty, hypocrisy, false teaching, abortion, theft, coercion and everything else except outright murder in the sanctuary. And, all of that was happening while the pastor would stand up every Sunday and give what sounded like a great sermon.

I’ve seen it. I’ve experienced what these people are willing to do. And, I have heard horror stories from others who have had similar experiences. And, for every ‘Jerry Falwell’ who is caught, there are many, many more who are not – whose sins are covered up by loyal ‘elders’ and ‘deacons’.

I have seen so much of it, it’s always a surprise when I don’t find it.

I am equally surprised when I find someone actively fighting it.

If you are a young Christian, or have never been in a position of responsibility in a church, you probably do not know what I am talking about. Unfortunately, it also means that you are probably being poisoned by your church, if it is as corrupt as some of the ones that I have seen.

Remember that half of all pastors have admitted to regularly consuming pornography. And, those are just the ones who admit to it. That makes me wonder about the other half.

Is your pastor a regular consumer of pornography?

And, that’s just one of many corruptions our pastors are involved in. Then there are the elders and treasurers who are engaged in God-knows-what kinds of sin. And yeah, God does know. And, there will be a reckoning one day, and the price will be high for those who have betrayed their responsibilities.

The Bible speaks to this point in Paul’s letter to Timothy:

For the love of money is the root of all evils. Some people in reaching for it have strayed from the faith and stabbed themselves with many pains.

 – 1 Timothy 6:10 (NET)

TRANSLATION NOTE: The New English Translation (NET) seems to be the most correct, but they corrupt that verse with their footnotes. Other translations say ‘root of all kinds of evil’, but that is not what the Greek actually says. As I keep saying, we should not insert our interpretation of the Bible, into the Bible.

Just look at how this verse is being played out in front of our eyes. Everywhere. In everything.

Did you know that pornography is the single, biggest reason why your Internet speed is so fast?

Did you know that porn was the first industry to make money on the Internet?

Have you wondered why no one in the Obama administration has gone to jail?

Why does China want to crush and destroy Taiwan?

Why do so few know that there was a third building that fell on 9/11, in New York City?

Why have the heroin distribution networks never been uncovered?

Why was JFK assassinated?

How did Hitler rise so fast? So quickly?

Why is there so much sex and violence coming from Hollywood?

Why is there so much erotic imagery in marketing?

Why are there so many Bible translations?

Why does the Roman Catholic Church continue to be so powerful?

Why did Jerry Falwell abuse his power and engage in such awful sin?

I could go on and on and on, but the one thing that ties every single one of those questions together is the love of money. Yes, there are other sins and abominations mixed into all of those questions, but the love of money weaves its way through all of them. Every. Single. One.

When the Antichrist rises and takes control of the world, he will succeed in doing so because of the Love of Money.

10 thoughts on “For the Love of Money”

    • Hey Bondo,

      Wow. You have really been through a really hard time. I am so sorry. And, I know from experience that these things are often so deeply personal that few would understand how hard all of that was. But, I think that you did a good job of describing it, and I’m sure that there was a lot more to this than just that. (BTW, well done on pulling the reader in and then hammering us over the head with your conclusion.)

      I wish that these kinds of trials weren’t necessary. But, they are.

      One benefit to all of this, is that you now have proof that you are able to get through some of the worst storms that anyone ever goes through. And, you are definitely stronger for having gone through that.

      Again, I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through.

      And, I’m glad that you’re back. I was wondering about why you had stopped writing. Of course, I had stopped writing Omega Shock articles, too – to devote my efforts on When Jacob Returns.

      Oh, and the censorship. Yeah. I’m sure that I don’t know the half of it. The good thing is that God knows how to get around such things. I just need to make sure that I’m still doing my best.

      God always makes a way. God always wins. He loves us more than all of His creation.

      And yes, I keep forgetting that.

      God bless you, Bondo. You made it through. Well done.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  1. dear brother John

    pastor Dana Coverstone has a new dream where it is prophesied every sin of christians in leading ministry will be exposed finally it happens because first the house of the Lord will be judged and it happens when they have no remorse and dont confess their sin to the Lord He is so mercifull He would forgive those sins if they would turn to Him and humble themselves before the Lord
    Pastor Dana ask for common prayer in september
    that the church would have again a backbone and door a gateway to the Lord
    everything in.church will be exposed what need to be exposed
    and turn to the Lord again for revival after forgiveness and cleansing

    we all have to do the same be ready for His return while we still are able to find grace and mercy

    blessings from sister nadine to you and your wife

  2. you can also suffer from lack of money and try to solve it in an ungodly way then you can also be pierced with many pains like in my situation unfortunately 😨

  3. Amen, Nadine

    Will keep you in prayer, I too am in same situation and it’s hard, lets trust in the Lord with all our hearts, and lean not on our own understanding. (Hope that translation is accurate.)

    God keep us and finish the work you have begun in us. To the Glory of God the Father, and our Savior Jesus, the son of God.

  4. Unfortunately, my experience with churches lines up with your remarks.

    Just wondering, are there house/organic churches in Taiwan? What are they like?

    Reply
    • Hi BJ,

      Unfortunately, the spiritual condition of churches here in Taiwan is terrible. Mrs. Little has a better handle on what’s going on than I do, but what she’s told me is horrifying. And, if I hadn’t seen some of it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it myself.

      I believe that part of the blame lies with the lack of persecution. Outside of Taipei just two to three percent identify as Christian. Inside Taipei, about ten percent. In all of China, around seven to eight percent – OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY – identifies as Christian. And Chinese Christians suffer a lot of persecution. While in Taiwan, Christianity is NOT persecuted in any way at all.

      Of course, the statistics over-simplify a very complex situation. I also hear stories of corruption in Chinese churches, and some of those who call themselves ‘Christian’, aren’t.

      As for ‘house churches’ here in Taiwan, it’s hard to say, since they don’t make a lot of noise. And, since they would be operating in just Mandarin or the indigenous Taiwanese dialect… even if I stumbled over one, I might not know what I’m seeing.

      The good thing is that Christians pop up in surprising places here, so I have some hope for the Taiwanese. But, I also know that this is all in God’s hands.

      Okay, that was probably a confusing answer for a simple question, BJ. One day, I will need to sit down and compile my ten years (so far) of experiences here.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
