People love money more than God


Recommended Posts

Lori's irritating post for today.

So maybe you struggle with pornography or arguing with your spouse. Maybe you eat too much and are overweight. Maybe you watch junk on television or read junky novels. Maybe you struggle with being submissive to your husband or yelling at your children.

If I were to offer you a million dollars to not act like that for one month and instead read your Bible daily and pray, do you think you can do it? I bet you could! We all have self-control We all do what we really want to do. We make time for what is important to us.

I wouldn't take up that challenge Lori. The Bible isn't my guide for life. It talks about rape, murder and child sacrifice. I'm not going to use that as a guide.

We truly are lovers of money more than lovers of God. Money has way too much power over us. The thing is that if we were to get a million dollars, it wouldn't make us happy for long but if we walk in obedience to God, our happiness and joy would last.

We have it all backwards. Instead of living for money, begin living for God. Do your work, heartily, as to the Lord and not unto man for it is the Lord we serve and want to please. Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness. Yes, it is a narrow road of self-denial, but it is the good and pleasant road which few are willing to travel.

Oh look, it's another fundie being arrogant and pretentious. "How surprising!" said no one ever.

The wannabe-God attitude doesn't work well with the core values of Christianity such as being humble and not judging because that is the task of the Lord.

When will they learn that rhetorical questions are best left to serious debates, master manipulators and talented authors. The rest stinks at using them. Lori's "I bet you could!" answer reeks of ugly fake omniscience. And betting is gambling, AKA another thing the Bible doesn't agree with. Also, betting is usually a monetary affair. Jeez Louise, Lori, you're not picking the right words to address the crowd at all today. Try again. I'm not even giving that post a C+ for effort.

Beyond these obvious observations, all I can say is that her arrogance leads in the wrong path (once more). She'd have lost that bet where I'm concerned. I would not follow the Bible as my life guide for a million dollars. And that's a genuine answer.

Actually it's more like, oh look, it's a wealthy fundie pretending that money isn't a big deal while enjoying expensive dinners and vacations and not willing to give up a cent of that to help others cause everyone else is lazy.

For a million dollars, I could do almost anything for a month. Be vegan. Wear dresses. Read a 2000 year old book of fables. Talk to an imaginary sky father.

Yeah, this.

Every time I read yet another one of Lori's posts, I start humming that old Styx song, "Too Much Time On My Hands." Because clearly, that's one of Lori's biggest problems. :roll:

I think Lori uses the blog to preach because she can't do much of that with her kids now that they are grown up and only one still lives at home. I do think she probably meddles in her married kids' lives when she can, but the rest of the time she gets off on blogging about how submission and how her God is supreme.

And fat!

But the Lord has given her this money. Because she doesn't watch TV while snacking on potato chips before reading 50 Shades of Submission. She deserves it.

So basically, this woman's children are grown and she doesn't have a job (other than being at her husband's beck and call) so instead of volunteering somewhere to make use of her time and oh, maybe make a real and substantive difference in the lives of those less fortunate than she, she sits on her ass all day and tells other people how they're doing it wrong. Over and over and over again. Is that about it?

I love the mix of sand, hair and goldfish crumbs I just fished out from the crevices of my kid's carseat more than I love god, Lori.

I'd love to read her daughters in law's internet postings.

(see how I did that with plural and possessive? Neat, huh?)

Um well Lori, I read the Bible and pray daily (or try to) but still watch junk on TV and read trashy crime/mystery novels and *shock* x-rated fanfic. The two are not mutually exclusive.

And yeah, I do think people love money more than God but that's shown in tax avoidance, pollution of the environment, human trafficking and exploitation, inhumane animal testing and intensive animal rearing that causes animal suffering, corrupt governments, the arms industry and fighting wars over oil. Not people watching Honey Boo Boo and eating cheetos.

Most fundies do, interestingly. Jimbo just worships Manon. He has sold his soul, their children's privacy, her wife's sanity, her privacy, her DIL's privacy, whatever makes you human, name it! he has sold it for money.

THIS. The only people who tell you money doesn't matter have loads of it. And they never seem willing to give it all up to prove their point . . .

This bitch is still talking? Do as you fucking preach, Lori. Walk the Walk. Btw, Christians cares about $, in case you haven't noticed. Hel-lo, tithes any1? :roll: Does an all-powerful God really need $ to keep his church going if the church is supposed to be a group of people worshipping together and not a building?

I think Lori's daughter-in-law came from a fundie lite family. Lori has indicated that in a few postings. In one posting she said something like "Erin's mom is also servant to her husband". The daughter-in-law probably blends in well with Lori's family. Lori has also admitted that Ryan and Erin spank little Emma. I also see the daughter-in-law being annoyed with Lori though. Lori does give off a very controlling vibe. As for Lori's son-in-law, I found a country club web page that discussed the son-in-law and daughter's wedding. The officiant for the wedding was the son-in-law's dad and quick google search shows that the dad is a pastor who has published a book.

I think Lori's other two children will marry fundie lite types. I wouldn't be surprised if Lori and Ken were somehow involved with matching up their Ryan and Alyssa with their spouses. If Lori's other son brought home a mainstream Christian woman who wants a career, Lori and Ken would be screaming their lungs off. Cassi the youngest child is currently looking for a husband. This might sound crazy, but I get off a creepy vibe in pictures from Cassi. I predict some kind of tragedy or major conflict will happen with one of Lori's kids because of their beliefs in submission.

This, since she can no longer spank them (they'd probably hit her back) she needs to spank her readers to keep her fetish under control.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
