Thanks for writing Name withheld

Simply put, No more freeloaders.


I have a THOUSANDS of pages of information out on my site that are and will remain free. You are welcome to read them. No money required.


I am not 'merchandising' the gospel. This is a site and takes money to run. I spend hours and hours writing everyday.  Let me correct your inaccurate and false accusation against me. My paid reports are SECULAR - and cost money, There are no Christian teachings in them, no 'Gospel' I am 'peddling'. What... your pastor does not need an income? 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 for the THOUSANDS of manhours put into this site. Christians like YOU need 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, especially without giving anything in return, and usually with the implication or effect of exhausting the other's resources; PARASITE. - dictionary.com


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 sound too much like the hypocrite that James talks about who refuses to help out his brother in need.

And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
(Jam 2:16-17)

You are saying to God's ministers, Do the work of God, start sites, print evangelical material, send missionaries, heal the sick and send them on their way with nothing but well wishes! Your faith sounds too 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 I 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 as well. Flapping your lips does not pay for ministry in the field, in the 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 money 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 starved by getting you to tell them they have to make everything free, 'money will grow on trees and fall out of the water fawcet', "I refuse to give... I have to go to the movies tonight with my boyrfriend and can't 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 cannot afford to give."


I have been FORCED to do this because people like YOU refuse to do YOUR 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.

No more.

If you cannot help out and only have excuses for not doing so, I don't want to be bothered with you until YOU realize that YOU TOO have a responsibility. Christians like who never want to give and always have an excuse are truly the real 'enemy within' the body of Christ and will 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 and your unwillingness to help as both illogical, un-scriptural and unchristian.

    1 Timothy 5:17-18
    The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For Scripture says, €œDo not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain, and The worker deserves his wages.
    
    1 Cor 9:3-12
    This is my defense to those who sit in judgment on me. Don't we have the right to food and drink? Don€™t we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord's brothers and Cephas? Or is it only I and Barnabas who lack the right to not work for a living?

    Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat its grapes? Who tends a flock and does not drink the milk? Do I say this merely on human authority? Doesn't the Law say the same thing? For it is written in the Law of Moses: Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.Is it about oxen that God is concerned? Surely he says this for us, doesn't he? Yes, this was written for us, because whoever plows and threshes should be able to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest. If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap a material harvest from you? If others have this right of support from you, shouldn€™t we have it all the more? But we did not use this right. On the contrary, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ.

No, (name witheld), you just don't want to pay for 'lunch'.

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 probably 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 so 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 top General. But  the General did not want to hear from other 9-5 officers who got on the general staff because of political connections 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 during this critical meeting.

    Dear Sir,

    I have commanded this battalion for 5 years now and remained in command after my first tour, by request. It is one of the finest units in our army. During the first year here, we were able to 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 lines of communications are stretched as far as ours are, supply disruptions are planned for an expected. Yet as each year passed, the disruptions got worse and worse. During our Al-Islamiya campaign, we had the enemy on the run, but we ran out of ammunition and food and had to retreat, giving up all the ground we had won, after having lost almost a quarter 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 the 423 remaining troops in our unit, a dozen or so mortars only one fully 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 or the lack of dedication of your soldiers, but because we are no longer being supplied to fight.

    Respectfully,

    Lt. Col, I. M. Battlehardened
    Commander 24th Forward Corp


The General, after reading this letter, looked around the room. There was dead silence. ¨Just what I thought, no one has anything to say, well I do,¨ the General continued. ¨I looked at our entire logistical infrastructure and had a secret investigation done on it. They found that we are manufacturing and shipping 29% more supplies now, than we were five years ago. That with the exception of the 2% loss rate that 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 his neck start to bulge and his voice slowly raising as he went on. ¨None 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 tell 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 goods but rather than sending anything to the troops hardly anything is getting through. I know some units make arrangements with the locals to ship a small amount of them to make life easier in the local community - 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 commanders. And none of you saw this? None of you knew?

Dead silence filled the room. The General continued. ¨Because you have all lost my confidence as I speak now, by Authorization of the President, I have instituted a full investigation into the details of this scandal. I have also, by that same authority dispatched two one-star generals, 10 Judge advocate Generals, 1000 Military policeman 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 is 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 be redirected to a new infrastructure we have also set up secretly while this investigation was transpiring. Things are going to be rocky for a while those we have called in to fill the gap, learn the new rules, but hopefully, in six months, supplies will again be on their way to those who need them.... and not one more roll of toilet paper is heading to those units currently under investigation. Anyone who sends so much as a paperclip to those units may very well find they are under the very same investigation!!¨

¨In the meantime, we have recalled some retirees to come in and fill in 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 side 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 following members of the Joint Staff are now under close arrest and are stripped of their authorities, under Military Law; General  Iwuz Blindasabat, General Eyehave Nocloo, General, Dumaz Arok...


The General Is Christ. The Supply Sergent is every Christian who has the wherewithal to give to ministry and does not, but rather takes the money and gifts God gives him and spends them on his own pleasures. The troops on the frontline are those in various levels and types of ministry. The 29% Supply increase the General noted is the money that Christians have been sent by God. The General Staff are Church leaders 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 in need all over the world. Don't be a victim of the Generals coming Court Martials.

Consider this as well. God can and will start blowing on the finances 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. Then he is going to show you all the crap you bought all the entertainment you spent money on and how little (if any) you gave to the gospel and 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 help out in ministry.

Remember the parable of the 10 talents. The guy who was a lousy steward 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 in hostile territory or are in jail for worshiping God and stop giving so much of your money to Hollywood's antichrist agenda... funding the devil with such a large share of the  money God gives you or you may get the shock of your life when you stand before God the Judge that ends in eternal death.


But a certain man named 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 things.
(Act 5:1-11)
