I am not 'merchandising' the gospel. This is a site and takes money
run. I spend hours and hours writing everyday. Let me correct
your inaccurate and false accusation against me. My paid reports are

What you don't need money to live? What? You think I live on some
astral plane?... floating in and out of heaven?
No, I do not need to take 'care' in trying to keep up some support
the THOUSANDS of manhours put into this site. Christians like YOU
to stop making excuses for not doing YOUR part in ministry... always
wanting something for free, like some spiritual leech.
Leech: - a person who clings to another for personal gain,
without giving anything in return, and usually with the
effect of exhausting the other's resources; PARASITE. -
Yes, that is a hard thing to say and I hope it is not true of you
personally. But how do you think God feels when so many Christians
don't give and always have an excuse and ministries go broke? You
too much like the hypocrite that James talks about who refuses to
out his brother in need.
one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and
notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to
body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is
dead, being alone.
You are saying to God's ministers, Do the work of God, start sites,
print evangelical material, send missionaries, heal the sick and
them on their way with nothing but well wishes! Your faith sounds
much like ALL TALK and NO WORKS. I hope that is not true of you, but
based on the tone of your letter, it sure sounds like it to me. Now
am not in 'need' in the sense that James meant in the above passage.
But nevertheless, Ministry costs money, keeping any minster be he
Priest, Prophet Pastor or evangelist COSTS MONEY they have to live
well. Flapping your lips does not pay for ministry in the field, in
pulpit or on the internet.
That means giving, giving to help the persecuted; giving to help the
needy giving to teachers and minsters of all varieties. Not making
excuses for doing the devils work in STARVING ministries of the
they need to keep open and doing their work. Satan loves it when
ministries are cash starved and cannot do the work they should be
doing. He gets people like YOU to make sure that they stay cash
by getting you to tell them they have to make everything free,
will grow on trees and fall out of the water fawcet', "I
give... I have to go to the movies tonight with my boyrfriend and
afford to give." or "I Have to get my hair permed and
cannot afford to
help Christ's ministers. or "I am saving for a new BMW and
afford to give."
I have been FORCED to do this because people like YOU refuse to do
part. You want to castigate me, but won't look in the Mirror at YOUR
own INACTION. I have resisted this move for over a decade.
If you cannot help out and only have excuses for not doing so, I
want to be bothered with you until YOU realize that YOU TOO have a
responsibility. Christians like who never want to give and always
an excuse are truly the real 'enemy within' the body of Christ
always remain OUTSIDE of my site from here on out.
Christ's ministers needs no more leeches attached to them.
I would never have had to do this if YOU and people LIKE YOU were
doing YOUR job and assisting.
I have NEVER seen YOU give to this site.
No, I reject you SELF SERVING and STINGY criticism
unwillingness to help as both illogical, un-scriptural and

Well, then you can go and eat somewhere else.
I know that this all sounds hard. Well what follows may help you
understand why. This is a Spiritual war and people like you are the
supply sergeants who are in deeper trouble with God that you
are aware of.
The General And The Supply Sergeant
There was once upon a time a war. In this war, the good guys were
losing. They had long had great successes but the last few years of
of the campaign, the good guys had suffered tremendous losses. Whole
fronts had collapsed and had been won over by the enemy in this long
and vicious war. When the Generals got together in a meeting to
determine the causes of failure, how to take corrective actions and
ways to regain the initiative, many reports were handed up the the
General. But the General did not want to hear from other 9-5
officers who got on the general staff because of political
and who were working out of comfortable offices, but from troops and
leaders in the field. After reading report after report, he finally
figured out one of the major problems in the way the war was being
conducted. The General read a typical field report to his staff
this critical meeting.
I have commanded this battalion for 5 years now
remained in command after my first tour, by request. It is one of
finest units in our army. During the first year here, we were able
rout the enemy at will. They could not stand before our tactics or
armaments. Yet beginning about 4 years ago, we began to experience
supply disruptions. At first we did not mark it because when your
of communications are stretched as far as ours are, supply
are planned for an expected. Yet as each year passed, the
got worse and worse. During our Al-Islamiya campaign, we had the
on the run, but we ran out of ammunition and food and had to
giving up all the ground we had won, after having lost almost a
of our battalion in the fierce fighting. The shortages are so severe
now that we have requested to be taken off the active unit register
because we have less than a thousand rounds of ammo to use between
423 remaining troops in our unit, a dozen or so mortars only one
functioning comm unit and the food we eat only comes from the
friendlies in the area who, at great risk, feed us.
We are losing this war, not because of cowardice
the lack of dedication of your soldiers, but because we are no
being supplied to fight.

The General, after reading this letter, looked around the room.
was dead silence. ¨Just what I thought, no one has anything to say,
well I do,¨ the General continued. ¨I looked at our entire
infrastructure and had a secret investigation done on it. They found
that we are manufacturing and shipping 29% more supplies now, than
were five years ago. That with the exception of the 2% loss rate
is typical in an army this size, Supply units in theater are indeed
receiving all the Ammo, food, stores, clothing, and other need war
fighting materials. So why are they not getting to our units? Again,
there was silence in the Staff meeting. The General was clearly was
getting angry, his staff knew him well enough to see the veins in
neck start to bulge and his voice slowly raising as he went on.
of you dipsticks has an answer do you? Years of war and none of you
nitwits have figured out why we are losing this war? Well, let me
you why we are losing this war. The supplies we are sending into the
field are being stolen by the supply sergeants. We send them the
but rather than sending anything to the troops hardly anything is
getting through. I know some units make arrangements with the locals
ship a small amount of them to make life easier in the local
- I am not talking about a couple boxes of Cheerios or Twinkies or a
even a few truckloads of milk. We are talking about a full 86% of
everything we send being eaten up or otherwise stolen or
misappropriated by local supply sergeants and lower level
And none of you saw this? None of you knew?
Dead silence filled the room. The General continued. ¨Because you
all lost my confidence as I speak now, by Authorization of the
President, I have instituted a full investigation into the details
this scandal. I have also, by that same authority dispatched two
one-star generals, 10 Judge advocate Generals, 1000 Military
who will conduct field court martials with executions to take place
immediately after any guilty findings in the field. There will be no
appeals. Each and every unit commander, supply Sergeant and other
personnel who are complicit in this scandal will be up on charges of
aiding and abetting the enemy and treason, and the only penalty that
allowed to be given is death by firing squad, sentence to be carried
out within 24 hours after the verdict is read. Further supplies will

a paperclip to those units may very well find they are under the
¨In the meantime, we have recalled some retirees to come in and fill
the jobs of the recently and soon-to-be executed to get the supply
chain back in good working order.¨ The General stands up,
¨Sargent, read this aloud please.¨ The sergeant who was wearing a
arm by the door during this unusual meet walks up the General and
begins to read a document headed to hm. ¨By order of the President,

The General Is Christ. The Supply Sergent is every Christian who has
the wherewithal to give to ministry and does not, but rather takes
money and gifts God gives him and spends them on his own pleasures.
troops on the frontline are those in various levels and types of
ministry. The 29% Supply increase the General noted is the money
Christians have been sent by God. The General Staff are Church
who let this go on and did nothing to put an end to it. The major
frontÅ› that are collapsing? It is the parts of the world where
Christianity is becoming extinct because believers are under attack
from enemy forces and are being killed, slaughtered run out of homes
and otherwise attacked and made into refugees.
So ends the Parable of the General and the Supply Sergent.
There are a lot of Christian ministries out there helping Christians
need all over the world. Don't be a victim of the Generals coming
Consider this as well. God can and will start blowing on the
of many a poor steward. You had a great job, suddenly you don't and
when you get on your knees and pray God is going to ask you what did
you do with all the money you had when you were making good money.
he is going to show you all the crap you bought all the
you spent money on and how little (if any) you gave to the gospel
Christ. That new car, that wonderful new Kitchen now all in jeapordy
because you were rebellious in heart and wanted to ride into the
kingdom in a limousine and could not spare some of your money to
out in ministry.
Remember the parable of the 10 talents. The guy who was a lousy
not only lost his money, but was cast out into the outer darkness.
Give to God's people who are in need, who are spreading the gospel
hostile territory or are in jail for worshiping God and stop giving
much of your money to Hollywood's antichrist agenda... funding the
devil with such a large share of the money God gives you or
may get the shock of your life when you stand before God the Judge
ends in eternal death.

Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept
back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and
brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. But
Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie
to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the
land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it
was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou
conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto
men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down,
and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that
heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and
carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of
three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done,
came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold
the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then
Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to
tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which
have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee
out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded
up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead,
and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. And great
fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these
