Thieving Rental Car Companies
By David J. Stewart | September 2019
1st Timothy 6:10, “For
the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted
after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
There is not a more abusive, thieving, ungodly, greedy, rotten, lying, dishonest and exploitative group in the United States than rental car companies. I am speaking of ALL OF THEM! It seems that as time has progressed over the decades, businesses have become more cold-hearted, calloused and rotten in their abuse of ethics, morality and decency. What ever happened to 'The Golden Rule' to love thy neighbour as thyself? Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Nobody would want to be gouged and taken advantage of financially, and dishonestly lied, the ungodly way that rent car companies mistreat people!
If you go online and search for a low-priced discount on a rent car, you're going to get a bunch of quotes for around $25 a day and up. But when you actually get to the rental agency to pick up the vehicle that you reserved, the crooks are going to jack you up with insurance add-ons, additional fees and additional taxes, which now make you pay $75 for that $25 a day rent car. That is as crooked as s dog's hind leg and they know it!!!
There are umpteen scams that rental car agencies use to rip consumer's off. Since they are all doing it, they no longer feel any reluctance or guilt to hurt people! This has happened across the board in our ungodly American culture, which has long ago strayed away from the good holy God of the King James Bible. Godly men and women don't take advantage of strangers in any way! America's rental car agencies (and ungodly hotel chains included) hurt people in their greed to make money. The ungodly states add their own ridiculous taxes to your bill. The federal government also wants their piece of the pie! There are literally dozens of hands in the pot, all reaching for your wallet to take your money! Every time you rent a vehicle or a hotel room, you are being raped financially. It would be laughable if it weren't so heinous and disgusting of the description of the additional charges. I stayed at a hotel that added a 3% charge for a property maintenance fee. How can they legally get away with that gouging?
Honestly, I marvel how crooked the United States has become. When a religious con-man like Benny Hinn (headquartered in Canada) can rip off Americans and the world to the sum of $100,000,000 per year, I cannot help but wonder why the authorities allow him to continue. Pat Robertson is an even bigger con-man, who took in around $670,000,000 in 2017 for his phony ministry, The 700 Club. They help a few poor people in third world countries, give tens of thousands of suffering people false hope through television-land, and then take their hard-earned money! God only knows how many struggling widows, hurting disabled people, lost wandering souls looking for spiritual answers, have been sinfully exploited by Pat Robertson for their money. Judgment day is coming for the wicked! That certainly includes the thieving car rental companies who prey upon weary travelers!
And may I say, American restaurants aren't much better! I stopped eating at Chili's years ago, because of their fascist forced gratuity! Most American restaurants are doing this racket today, because we the people tolerate this crap! I got fed up with Chili's on Guam (same as the United States) because even if I order food from their take-out window, they add a 10% service charge (for my convenience they insulting say). What rotten thieves! I've had it with their sinful greed! I recall back in the 1970's and 1980's that restaurants only charged gratuity to groups of 6 or more. Not one restaurant would be so bold and greedy to hit a personal customer with 10% gratuity just for ordering food to go! It is insane what is going on today in America! I digress. This article is about the thieving rental car companies, which are the worst offenders in my opinion. Restaurants are bad, hotels are horrible, but rental car companies are exceeding evil. Although greedy wicked lawyers and business people are the culprits, it is the American people mostly to blame for tolerating and going along with this wickedness. It is not okay to exploit other people financially!
It is common knowledge that rental car companies horribly take advantage of people at airports. A common tactic is to tell the customer that the particular cheaper vehicle they requested is not available, and then charge you for a more expensive car or van. Also, when you return the vehicle, they charge the customer anywhere between $10 to $20 per gallon for fuel. Literally, if you bring back the vehicle on an empty fuel tank, because you were in a hurry to get somewhere, they will take advantage of your calamity and charge you upwards of $500 for a full tank of gas!!! What rotten ungodly people! The Holy Bible teaches that God is going to treat us the exact same way we treated other people during this earthly life (Matthew 7:1-5). The manner in which we treat others is a serious matter to God! There are only two relationships in this life—God and our fellow humanity (i.e., our neighbour). Ironically, some of the most ungodly people who have ever lived, like President's George H. and George W. Bush, throw around such positive statements while murdering the innocent in illegal wars and committing all manner of evil. Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
Google and YouTube are sinfully censoring Christians, conservatives and truth-tellers. Anybody who dares to tell the truth against evil is labeled as a “hater” and then banned, put into Google jail. The honorable Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has been wrongfully banned from Facebook for telling the truth. When major social media outlets can censor and ban the truth, our country is already imprisoned in a fascist police state! It is just a matter of escalation and time, to further the monstrous oppressive system already set into motion, until a full force communist totalitarian police state follows!!! Youtube is banning videos by God-fearing Christians who are trying to speak out against the ungodly sin of homosexuality. Jeffree Star is a sickening cross-dressing homosexual, yet Youtube has literally paid him over $15,000,000 for his perverse ungodly transgender promoting videos! When hellbound sodomites are becoming multi-millionaires on YouTube, but faithful Baptist preachers like Grayson Fritts are being censored and banned for preaching the truth that sodomites are of the Devil, we plainly see that Satan controls YouTube's reprobate owners and this country!
This country is long overdo for a much deserved economic collapse! If I had my way, gratuity would be legally banned! Did you know that in Japan restaurant owners don't charge customers gratuity? And neither do customers leave any! In Japanese culture, such greedy thinking doesn't exist! Americans are among the most spoiled rotten, namby-pamby, wicked heathens in the world. That is why the rest of the world hates us so much! Americans are in danger when they travel aboard, because of the horrible things our country does to sop many people.
I read in the Bible today that the LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all evil and immediately thought about all the wicked things that Americans promote nowadays—ABORTION, HOMOSEXUALITY, FORNICATION, EVOLUTION, FALSE RELIGION, IDOLATRY, NAKEDNESS, GREED, DISHONESTY, LYING, DISHONORING PARENTS, VIOLENCE, LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE PRIVACY OF OTHERS, MANIPULATING PEOPLE TO MAKE MONEY, ET CETERA!
We see two woeful sins in America today—LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE PRIVACY OF OTHERS and MANIPULATING PEOPLE TO MAKE MONEY. It is truly wickedness the way people abuse each other's privacy these days. James 2:8, “If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.” NO ONE has a right to share ANY information that is deemed “PRIVATE.” I am sick and tired of getting notices in the mail from my insurance company, the government, insurance and bank, et cetera, that lets me know they're going to THUGGISHLY share my private information against my will, and I must take measures to prevent it! THAT IS VERY UNETHICAL, SINFUL AND UNNEIGHBORLY!
Ungodly people are getting bolder and bolder in these last days. I read a notice yesterday from the medical clinic I go to, which said they are going to share my personal information, whether I approve or not, even if I specify that I don't want them to share my personal information. Their bogus excuse is so they can “IMPROVE” the quality of service to all patients. The very nature of the now forming ungodly New World Order is invasion of privacy—forcing people to receive a mark in their body or else not be able to buy or sell anything! Revelation 13:16-17, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” With this truth in mind, you can understand why we should be offended when someone shares our personal information against our will, or tracks and monitors our browsing activity on the internet without our permission. The unethical people who are doing this (and will no doubt continue to do so), are pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
People are so covetous and greedy these days, lacking in ethics and decency, that they intentionally buttonhole you with advertisements, manipulating your browsing history in an attempt to suck every dime out of you they can. THAT IS WICKEDNESS!!! They are harassing you to make money. Their ungodly excuse is that you (the consumer) have the ability to login and control your own marketing preferences. The reality of the matter is that you would have to spend hours regularly logging into dozens of websites, continually battling to try to stop the tracking, spying and manipulating of your privacy and information. People have become cutthroat in these “perilous times” (2nd Timothy 3:1-7). Any thoughts that selfishly manipulate other people to make money is an abomination to God!
Ungodly Crooked Car Rentals - Thieving Minds
We live in a horribly manipulative culture of greed in America today! I see something that has happened, which the dishonest people themselves, and the younger generation, don't see. As they have gradually become more and more dishonest, gradually lowering their moral standards and abandoning decency, they don't realize how bad they have become. Since I don't travel very often, and I am a homebody pretty much, I see things when I do get out and travel. I was dismayed last year at the gross wickedness that exists today in businesses! Hotels and car rentals are as crooked as dog's hind leg, adding all sorts of fees, taxes and special charges.
I visited Pensacola, Florida last year and needed to rent a car. I randomly chose Alamo car rental. I went to the counter at Alamo and asked to rent their cheapest car. The woman quoted me $103 per day. I told her that I could take my laptop computer, right there, and reserve a car from them for much cheaper, if she was going to make me go through the trouble. I was so tired from a hectic week. I think she saw my “Jesus” hat. She then asked if $22 a day was better. I smiled and said, “Done!” But then when she added the required taxes, fees and insurance, that rent car went up to $60 per day! Still, it was better than $103 a day. So they charged me $238 for four days. I read the car rental contract and it said that if I were to return the car early, they would charge me for the entire four days. That is really rotten!
Then after four days, I needed the car for an additional day and called the phone number provided on the rental contract. A different woman, a cold Alamo operator, answered and said I'd have to pay $195 for just one more day, claiming that I had entered into a “weekly rate.” I was upset and told the woman that I think their company is ungodly for taking advantage of people. She couldn't have cared less. So I drove the rent car back to the airport where I rented it and returned it. Car rentals rip people off big time! Car rental companies are greedy thieves, manipulating and taking advantage of consumers at every possible opportunity! That is exactly what the Devil does—“walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1st Peter 5:8).
The Lord does not honor any business that gouges people for money, taking advantage of them at every opportunity. Such thoughts of ungodly people who live for money are an abomination to the Lord.
Today's Untoward Generation in America
Acts 2:40, “And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”
The word “UNTOWARD” means “CROOKED.” The millennial generation is a crooked generation of Godless, materialistic, liars—a generation of liars—all about projection of affluence, intelligence and control (all the while lacking all of these). It is quite pathetic really. Today's generation is completely propagandized and totally unaware of reality, woefully ignorant of: the origins and controllers of Islamic Wahhabist terrorism, the true history of the United States, the original constitutional charter of the United States, the current global strategic situation, et cetera. They engage in meaningless discourses on social media; they eat junk food that shortens their lifespan; they talk endlessly about nothing. The Baby Boomer Generation | MP3 (awesome red-hot preaching by Pastor Steven Anderson).
In Andre Vltchek's words regarding Westerners—they are, “intensively communicating about nothing, while shockingly ignorant of the world.” They are all compartmentalized and essentially homogenous—the Millennials are mindless and glued to cellphones and social media. These are “perilous times” to live in today. 2nd Timothy 3:1-2a, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves...” People in the United States are very different today than they were 75 years ago. People have lost their sincerity, becoming superficial and shallow, which sadly includes professed Christians (since we are all a part of the same deteriorating culture). Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
“Our whole stinking country is putting millions of people in 'TIME OUT' called prison. It's a big TIME OUT! Seriously! ...Prisons shouldn't exist! The world's wisdom says: 'Lock somebody in a cage when they do wrong!' ...You know God laid out a whole criminal punishment system in the Bible, and you know what's conspicuously absent from God's criminal justice system—PRISON! Why? Because Prison is a fraud, because prison is a privatized industry, that makes people [money]. It's always the money that's behind it.” —Pastor Steven Anderson, a needful quote from the YouTube video: Scam City: Jails, Prisons, and Criminal Checks Exposed; a clip from the classic sermon titled, EARTHLY, SENSUAL, DEVILISH. I love this guy for telling THE TRUTH!
THE PARADOX OF OUR TIMES
Taking Away the Life of the Owners Thereof
When a company conspires ahead of time, thinking of different abominable ways to take advantage of customers financially, that is laying a trap (a net) for one's neighbour. ...
Proverbs 1:14-19, “Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse: My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird. And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives. So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.”
A man's paycheck is his life! A person gave of their time (their life spent) to earn that money, and when a shady company plots of ways to take advantage of their neighbours, to take their money from them, that is an abomination in the sight of God. I love the fifteenth Psalm, which tells a man how never to change for the worse! One of the things that the Bible says not to do, is lend money for interest to others. Psalms 15:5, “He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.” Put another way—There's just something about money that once you have it, it has you! Money does strange things to people.
Baptist churches all across America are now ruined because of money. They need money for their salaries, so they compromise, and are indifferent toward truth, so they don't value a truth-teller like me. Money turns pastors into compromisers! I dare say that 1% of church pastors are PREACHERS!!! God pity the pastor who can't preach his way out of a paperbag! Evangelist Billy Sunday used to throw chairs! Pastor Jack Hyles would often toss microphones, to get people's attention! IT WORKED!!! There is something wrong when people flock by the hundreds of thousands to see a Rock star run around and jump up and down singing; but a pastor stands dead behind the pulpit and can't draw even a hundred people to hear him preach God's inspired Words! We need a bunch of Billy Sundays who run, jump and spew Holy Spirit fire in the pulpit! Amen and amen!
Pastor Hyles, “Why go to a dead church when you're going to go to a living place in Heaven?”
The Abominable Thoughts of the Wicked Person Versus the Mind of Christ
Some of the worst sins are committed behind a Satanic disguise of good intentions. I read a horrible article recently that praised abortion, because it reduces the crime rate by eliminating high-risk children. In other words, if unwanted children are allowed to be born, who don't have a solid home to grow up in, they'll likely become criminals. Although there is much truth to the article, it is a crying shame that anybody would regard murdering children as a good thing! Wouldn't it be much better to reintroduce the inspired Holy Bible into the public school system, rather than murder children because they are no longer wanted?
Certainly, such thoughts of harming human life at any point in development is an abomination to the Lord. Abortion is an abomination to God, as are the doctors, mothers, clinics and all who help to shed innocent blood! There is no justification for abortion!!! Genesis 4:10, “And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.”
Here are the foolish ungodly thoughts of a young woman who sanctions murdering children by abortion:
“Why don’t we look at abortions in a more positive light? In every other circumstance, when something affects your physical and mental health and well- being, you are encouraged to take action to end the thing that is causing you to suffer. Pregnancy may be too much of a strain on your body, or you find it difficult to look after just you, never mind another human being. We are frightened to admit this. And we shouldn’t be.”
SOURCE: Abortion Is A Good Thing. Really. (June 2018)
The biggest mistake that people make is to follow the leading of their heart. Jeremiah 17:9 warns us that, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” The inspired unchanging Words of almighty God ought to be our only authority, in all matters pertaining unto faith and life, and not our ever-changing unreliable feelings. The world is in a gigantic nightmare mess, because people all have their own changing opinions, rather than seeking and taking heed to God's unchanging opinion. It is interesting that the very word “HERESY” means “AN OPINION.” Any opinion that disagrees with God's opinion is heresy! Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” If the words that we speak are in agreement with God's Words in the Scripture, then we will be justified in eternity when we are judged by the Lord. Abominable thoughts are any thoughts that contradict God's thoughts in His Word. Through searching the inspired Scriptures we can gain the knowledge and mind of Christ. Philippians 2:5, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”
The Scripture warns us to beware of the teachings of men. For get the bad dog... BEWARE OF MAN!
Colossians 2:6-8, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
Literally, life boils down to a constant battle between the inspired Words of God versus the ungodly thinking of the wicked world. I choose the inspired King James Bible!
When most people think about what is considered a bad sin, or a horrible crime, they think about murder, adultery or armed robbery. But collecting and sharing another person's private information to manipulate them, and to take advantage of people through aggressive marketing techniques, is also very sinful. I was amazed when I paid for the professional version of Spybot, when I saw all the spying cookies that had been stored on my computer, to track and monitor and manipulate me! Although many internet articles downplay the threat of cookies stored on your computer, the threat is real! I went to shop at Amazon.com and looked at some music keyboards. I didn't but anything that particular day. The next day I was surfing a totally different website, which had absolutely nothing to do with music, nor Amazon, nor anything related, and that same exact brand and model of keyboard was being SHOVED IN MY FACE in advertisements. That is ungodly! It made me upset! I don't like being manipulated by anyone! Galatians 5:14, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
The more that unscrupulous people monitor, track and sell your private information to other businesses, the more calloused and bold they get in their exploits. Galatians 5:14, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” I will not exploit people for any reason! That is why you'll never see exploitive ads, pop-ups and annoying messages on my ministry websites, buttonholing you to do what I want you to do, so I can exploit you to make money, and harass you with newsletters filled with sales-pitches and force myself upon you as a rapist would! That is exactly how I feel when I go to all these ungodly exploitive websites today. I am sick and tired of it all! If you don't have it yet, the totally free 'Ultimate Ad Blocker' is awesome! I received a notification yesterday that the browser add-on has already blocked 1,000 advertisements from appearing in my browser. Praise the Lord!
So now instead I get these rude messages when I visit websites, who are angry because I won't let them exploit me for money, and the messages tell me that I cannot use their website unless I remove the ad blocker! I gladly leave those horrible websites! I WILL NOT remove the ad blocker for anybody—just so they can manipulate and exploit me in their ungodly sinful greed. I tell you, GREED has ruined the whole experience of surfing the internet! Everything nowadays is about money, money, money.
And, respectfully, then when I go to church websites for a break from the greed of the world, I heard Pastor Clarence Sexton begging in 2016 for A MILLION DOLLARS to renovate the dorms at Crown Bible College! Damn it, what is wrong with Christians today, that they always seem to be broke and need MORE MONEY! I am a friend toward First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana and Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee. I love them with all my heart, and my heart is knit with theirs, for I am an Independent Fundamental Baptist as they are. But my first love and loyalty is to God and truth, and I must preach the truth. loyal to principle and not people. I am not being unkind, but when I saw con man Ken Ham invited and standing behind the pulpit of Temple Baptist Church, it further showed me that Dr. Sexton is focusing on money. Ken Ham is a shady businessman, who exploits Christianity to take in 36,000,000 a year in money. Everything that he says is intended to get your money! Beware of the greedy ungodly Young Earth racket!
I had never thought about many of the good points that Pastor Steven Anderson (I dearly love this guy) makes in his intriguing sermon titled, “The Bible College Scam!,” but I have to agree with a lot of things that he says. In particular, I agree with Brother Anderson that the Bible colleges are growing by leaps and bounds in financial wealth, while the churches are languishing in so many ways. Literally, the Bible colleges are parasiting off the churches, hurting them. Every damned Bible college that I know of today denies the inspiration of the King James Bible, which makes me sick! Pastor Jack Hyles is one of the most honest preachers who ever walked this earth; hear what he says about the matter of deceptive Bible colleges.
1st Timothy 6:10-11, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”
Beware of the Love of Money Versus the Mind of Christ
As an example: Kindly, I remember when I served voluntarily in the soulwinning department for the 'B Sunday School' of the First Baptist Church of Hammond (1985-1993). A fellow Hyles-Anderson College student had become involved in a life-insurance business, and was the leader of that particular department. As a college student, I was approached by several students, who tried to recruit me to sell A.L. Williams life-insurance, and also to purchase it for myself. It bothered me from day one. I was still very young and naive, but I know greed when I see it! The man in charge of the soulwinning room had found out that the company I worked for (as a mechanic at the time), provided a listing of all fellow employees' addresses, so Christmas Cards could be sent. The company I worked for had about 75 employees total. This company had absolutely nothing to do with FBCH nor HAC. I never want to make friends with someone who is always thinking about ways to make money; I am going to always think about ways to get more souls saved! The love of money has ruined 99% of Bible colleges and preachers!
In hindsight, I still feel disgusted by the shameful way that the ministry leader literally begged me for the list of names. I saw his greed, and his wife was embarrassed by her husband's behavior. I never did give him that list of names, but he pressured me for 10 minutes for it! I plainly told him that the list was entrusted to me as a fellow employee, for the sole purpose of sending Christmas Cards, and not to be exploited by some guy who wants to make money trying to sell people A.L. Williams life-insurance. I washed my hands of the whole thing, and have never regretted it. By the way, the true story I just told you is NOT intended to be a bad reflection upon FBCH nor HAC, but upon the individual men themselves for allowing Satan to fill their heart with the love of money! By the way, I have no idea if A.L. Williams is an honest insurance company or not, and I couldn't care less, because I am not interested in life insurance. I don't trust any of them because businesses have become so rotten, ungodly and dishonest today! Insurance companies are notoriously crooked and dishonest. It's what they DON'T TELL YOU that is most damaging when there is a claim, and they refuse to honor your claim, citing tiny fine print in your contract that only a law student can interpret (and they fully know it). I do know that Prudential life insurance company are thieving ungodly reprobates, as crooked as a dog's hind leg, who woefully cheated me, but that is a different story! I was also cheated by State Farm insurance! God will judge them!
Granted, there's nothing wrong with buying or selling life-insurance, but like anything else involving money, it does something to corrupt people's walk with God. That is why I have never—no not ever, never, ever, ain't gonna happen, no way, never—will I ever receive a penny for my ministry work! Nor will I even take money for my public musical performances. While playing my Hawaiian steel guitar years ago at the beach, a stubborn man stuck $5 in my shirt pocket, and right in front of him I threw it on the ground, because I didn't want it! Some people are too kind, but I am resolved not to take money, for any reason. I HATE MONEY! I didn't take it then, and I won't accept it now, nor ever. My website ministry is for the precious Lord Jesus Christ! I love you dear stranger, whoever you may be, and all I want is to help you get saved and live for God, so you can have peace with God and the peace of God. Romans 5:1, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The preceding Bible verse speaks of salvation through faith in Christ alone!
Our Ungodly Exploitive American Culture of Greed
I think one of the most defining characteristics of the fallen state of our nation today, is the massive prevalence of unscrupulous (lacking honesty and oblivious to what is honorable) practices of American businesses. Everywhere I turn I feel disgusted by what I see today—a preponderance in every business contract of shady fine print written by ungodly lawyers (that intentionally only a law student can understand). These contracts are required for everything—realtors, bank accounts, internet accounts, medical, insurance, car rentals, hotels, even church membership. IT IS WICKEDNESS!!
It is a big problem these days! I hate when ungodly people do that, manipulating their neighbours, all for money! I don't care about money! I love Jesus and the things of God, and I decided many years ago that money will NEVER be an issue in my life. I am not wealthy, but God takes care of me. I live a simple life. I avoid monthly payments at all cost. I try to save before I buy, the old-fashioned way. There's a popular true saying from The Great Depression era—Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Do without out! I simply don't want a lot of money, and you're unwise if you do.
Again, the inspired Word of God is very clear about the dangers of covetousness and greed for money:
1st Timothy 6:6-11, “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”
I could go on and on about the ungodly greed all around us today. In Japan a restaurant owner wouldn't even dare think of charge a patron GRATUITY, nor would a customer feel obligated to pay it. In our greedy American culture today, nearly all of the restaurants rip people off! They force you to pay gratuity, which is far as I'm concerned is effectively the same as putting a gun to your head, opening your wallet, and taking out what they want. And then they insult you by asking for a TIP in addition to that! It is sickening! On Guam, that same greedy exists in the chain restaurants from the United States. I love eating at the local mom and pop family owned places that DON'T charge gratuity. They are humble people, and don't exploit their customers for money. I haven't been to Chilies on Guam for over 8 months for that exact reason, because they are greedy. Even if I order food to go at their take-out window, and never sit down, Chilies still charges me 10% (it's their horrible greedy business policy). They claim the charge is for my convenience. That is literally what the receipt says! What reprobates! All of the rotten American restaurants are doing it, which is why they get away with it, but it is horrible greed! I HATE AMERICAN'S GREED!!! This type of shenanigans and ungodly greed will only get worse and worse. 2nd Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
I will briefly mention the evil of countless ungodly cities across the United States, who intentionally install intersection cameras to make money from citizens who blow red lights. If that rotten police state technology upsets you (as it does me), then what I am about to say will infuriate you. Many cities have become so greedy that they've deliberately shortened the time the traffic light stays yellow, which significantly increases the likelihood that motorists will blow a red light, and that means more revenue for the ungodly town! So citizens across the United States today are slamming on their brakes, to avoid having to lose a few days of pay at work, and by slamming on the breaks, rear-end collision accidents have skyrocketed! Do you see how ungodly people have become! This is America! If I had my way, they'd all be hung for exploiting their neighbours for money! We are living in incredibly evil times, but because of the cesspool of iniquity of Hollywood (seeing violence and perversion galore on Tv) evil is no longer shocking to us! Oh, how we need the inspired King James Bible!!!!!!!
Right Thoughts Concerning Eternal Salvation
A lot of people foolishly think they know more than God, but they don't. Job 4:17, “Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?” What we all need to do is humble ourselves before our Creator, and seek His precious face, Who has manifest Himself to the world through the Savior, Jesus Christ! The Christian life is centered around Jesus Christ! If that offends you, your thoughts are an ABOMINATION to God, and you need to get saved dear reader! Romans 10:3-4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” If there is ONE area where you don't want to have WRONG THINKING, it is in the matter of salvation.
“Anybody, who's been thrown out of the church, can come back whenever they want, to get right with God, renounce heresy, and embrace the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity.” —Pastor Steven Anderson, a helpful quote from the excellent sermon titled, “Unbiblical Reasons: Why We Accept People Who Are Thrown Out.”
There is hardly a day that goes by, in one place or another, where I don't hear somebody speak blasphemy concerning how to get to Heaven. This is especially true in YouTube videos. I am appalled at the amount of Satanic heresy on the internet. But, hey, it's a big world! There are billions of people, and MOST OF THEM are hellbound in their sins without Jesus Christ! The way of salvation is ONLY through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! Acts 16:30-31, “And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” The invitation for salvation made to this soldier, was also extended to his entire family. The inspired Words of God (as recording in the Holy Bible) extend the same invitation to you dear friend, and to your whole family, by faith in the Gospel. “THE GOSPEL” is “THE GOOD NEWS” of Christ crucified to DEATH on the cross, BURIED, and bodily RESURRECTED the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-6). Believe that GOOD NEWS and the work is done! John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” Do you believe dear reader? I DO! I BELIEVE ON THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD!!!
John 11:25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
