So when are you going to sell all your possessions?

No, no - God wants his churches to be wealthy, not those who attend - just so they earn enough so they are able to put their last two mites in towards the minister's new Learjet (the old one is such a last -year colour...)

I don't have much--I don't have a house or car, or cell phone. So my best avenue would be to show all Jesus' teachings so that they wont be in need either.

I don't wear rose colored glasses--the ones satan has confused do-2Cor 4:4)

I didn't seek wealth or possessions, I am 59. I have something way more valuable--Gods truth. Its worth more than all the $$$$$$, gold, gem stones on earth combined.

You have what you BELIEVE is God's truth. You don't know this for fact anymore than I know the Loch Ness monster or Bigfoot is real (I don't believe that, just an example).


Also, I have noticed a trend with people like you (those who say they didn't seek wealth or possessions, and are fundamentalists), in that you didn't seek it because you couldn't get it. In other words, you knew you lack the ability to earn good money, so you say you "didn't seek it". They lack either the IQ, or the drive, and they like that they can just say, "God didn't want me to be rich" as an excuse to never do anything worthwhile.


Why don't you get rid of the computer you are using? That is a fairly expensive possession. I am sure there are people who could be fed for weeks off of the price you could get, even if it is an older computer.

That's not necessarily the case here. He is a Jehovah's Witness so he is required to devote all his resources to the organization. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania requires the "first fruits" a person has. One recent moneygrab article showed an old woman looking into a completely empty fridge (not even a bottle of ketchup). In the next frame it shows her putting money into the contribution box at the Kingdom Hall. The Watchtower directs ALL money to the advancement of the company. They take food out of the mouths of their own poor. The Watchtower separates "fleshy" and "spiritual" realms. "Spiritual food" is what matters not "fleshly food".
