Bible truth about money is being hidden from Christians by America’s 501c3 Pharisees posing as godly pastors

Dear Christian, please don't shoot the messenger just because the message may seem at first glance unpleasant to some. It has been my experience that silence does not remedy evil, to the contrary, silence enables evil. The maxim of human law is "Qui tacet, consentire videtur", which means "He who is silent is supposed to consent. The silence of a party implies his consent."(Black's Law Dictionary, 4th Ed.) I specifically do NOT consent to the evil I am describing here. Because I believe history is full of great individuals who taught us that silence in the face of evil is cowardice, I am rebuking PROVABLE, DOCUMENTED evil, along with it's perpetrators, promoters and followers per Lu 17:3 and Pr 28:23, Eph 5:6-7, Eph 5:11, Gal 6:7-9 and 1 Thes 5:21, and exhorting them, per Heb 3:13 and Heb 10:24-25, to do better.

Despite such Bible verses as Ex 1:17, 1 Sa 8:5-20, Jg 8:22-23, Jg 9, Ps 118:8-9, Ps 146:3, Jer 17:5, Da 3:18, Mt 17:24-27, Acts 4:19, Acts 5:29, Ga 5:1,14,18-23, Php 3:20, 2 Tim 3:5, Jas 2:25 to the contrary, 26 USC 501(c)(3) churches have routinely misused such cherry-picked Bible verses as Ro 13:1-7; Tit 3:1; Heb 13:17; 1 Pe 2:13; 2 Pe 2:10 (“obey ‘government’ no matter how evil it is”), Jesus’ famous “render unto Caesar” quote (Mt 22: 21, Mk 12:17, and Lu 20:25), and Jesus’ parable of the talents (Mt 25:27, Lu 19:23) to facilitate the systematic systemic violation by “government” of the express biblical prohibitions against the self-evidently UNsustainable human behaviors of 1) fluctuating mediums of exchange (Lev 19:35-36, Deut 25:13, Pr 16:11, Pr 20:10, Pr 20:23, Mic 6:11, 1 Thes 4:6), 2) usury (Ex 22:25, Lev 25:35-37, Deut 15:6, Deut 23:19,20, Ne 5:7-11, Ps 15:5, Pr 22:7, Pr 28:8, Isa 24:2, Eze 18:13,17, Eze 22:12), and 3) debt (Pr 22:7).

The Bible forbids dishonest money (aka "fluctuating mediums of exchange"): Lev 19:36, Deut 25:13, Pr 16:11, Pr 20:10, Pr 20:23, Mic 6:11, 1 Thes 4:6. Make no mistake about it, fluctuating mediums of exchange (aka "money") are the EXACT moral, spritual and intellectual equivalent of the biblical prohibition against "divers weights" and "divers measures" (King James version) and "true and false weights" and "true and false measures" (Amplified version). This is so precisely because "money" is a unit of measurement of "value" which is in the eye of both willing buyers and willing sellers in an honest free marketplace 100% devoid of coercion of any kind.

The Bible forbids usury (aka "interest"): Ex 22:25, Lev 25:35-37, De 15:6, De 23:19,20, Ne 5:7-11, Ps 15:5, Pr 22:7, Pr 28:8, Isa 24:1-4, Eze 18:13,17, Eze 22:12.

There are self-justifying so-called "Christian" lovers of usury who pretend that "interest" is OK, and that the Bible only forbids "usury", which is too high an interest rate, and also illegal according to human law. But for the purposes of the Bible, "usury" & "interest" are exactly synonymous. The Bible calls 1% interest "usury". See Ne 5:7-11.

For those so-called "Christian" usury lovers who want to play cutesy pie with the word "brother", as the Bible applies that word to usury, I refer you to the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) which Jesus told the cutesy-pie, self-justifying lawyer who asked him "who is my neighbor?"

For those so-called "Christian" usury lovers and "gubmint" lovers who like to misuse Jesus' famous "render unto Caesar" (Mt 22:16-22, Mk 12:13-17, Lu 20:19-26) quote to justify paying whatever level of taxes politicians see fit to demand, Jesus' famous "render unto Caesar" quote is explained by Matthew 17:24-27 and Mark 11: 27-33. Jesus was obviously NOT pro-taxes or pro-"gubmint"! Jesus knew better than anybody that according to such biblical passages as Psalms 24:1, 50:10-12, 89:11and Haggai 2:8, everything belongs to God, even all the silver, all the gold, and any other metals coins might possibly be made of. Under these scriptures, Christ’s answer could have been that the metal in the coin in question belonged to God, and only Caesar's image, combined with the sin-based belief of gullible gubmint followers in that graven image and established political order, belonged to Caesar. Yet Jesus did not give either a “yes” or a “no” answer. So what exactly was it he did?

The question the Pharisees asked of Christ about taxes was a wannabe-clever trick question designed to elicit a self-destructive answer which the Pharisees could use against Jesus with the people. Very obviously, a “yes” answer could not have been used against Jesus. Since a “yes” answer is what today’s crop of 501(c)(3) Pharisees read into Christ’s response, why didn’t Jesus just say “yes?” Because obviously he did not mean to say “yes.” Of course a “no” answer was what the Pharisees were hoping for, because it would be considered treasonous and they could get the Romans to kill Jesus and get him out of their hair.

Jesus simply gave a political1 non-answer to the tax question, just as he did to the forgiveness-of-sin question in Mark 11: 27-33. He knew better than anybody that in a society which had long since been brainwashed into not seeing the differences between true self-government and coercion/domination — pecking-order based herd gubmint operating under the pretense of "self government" — whoever tried to precisely define what actually did belong to Caesar and what actually belonged to God would be in big trouble. So he didn’t oblige the Pharisees by giving a direct answer, any more than they would play into his hands by giving him a direct answer to the question of under whose authority he was able to forgive sin. We even get to see the Pharisees' line of reasoning for refusing to answer directly. It’s not hard to understand Jesus’ line of reasoning. If he said yes, his overtaxed countrymen would resent it, while the Pharisees could say to the people (just as the modern-day 501(c)(3) Pharisees do), “See, Jesus says you should pay your taxes!” If he said no, the Pharisees would say (just as the modern-day Pharisees do), “See, Jesus is anti-government, which is the same thing as being anti-God, because everybody knows civil ‘government’ is ordained by God!”

Jesus’ actual position on taxation can best be gleaned from Matthew 17:24-27. Clearly the children of God are under no blanket moral obligation to pay tribute money to the kings of this world. Jesus elected to pay taxes on a case-by-case-as-politically-needed basis under the “lest we offend” doctrine. And the few taxes he did pay bore no resemblance whatever to today’s criminal scheme of monetized-debt, debt-as-money public-debt fraud. From a moral point of view, one ought to pay for the services one wants to purchase, even if the services are purchased from “government” and the price is taxes. But when the so-called “services” include thievery, murder, extortion, religious and political persecution, corrupt courts, and the brainwashing of children with mandatory “education,” it is not surprising that the subject of taxation can raise serious and complicated moral questions for any honest truth seeker. Jesus' "lest we offend" doctrine simply meant that he never wanted to do anything to push any person farther from God just because they might be ignorant (or functionally illiterate in the U.S. Constitution, Scripture, economics or history) and hold mistaken beliefs.

Then there is the matter of Jesus' parable of the talents (Mt 25:14-30, Lu 19:12-27). Usury lovers2 like to pretend that Mt 25:27 and Lu 19:23 meant that Jesus was saying usury is acceptable to God. But you don't get to cherry-pick (see Isa 5:20, Isa 28:13, 1 Thes 5:21, etc) two verses in the Bible and use an IMPLICATION to negate all the places where usury is EXPRESSLY prohibited. When that sort of thing (an apparent conflict) happens, the doctrine of "conflict of laws" takes over, and you have to interpret the verses in question so they don't conflict. In other words, if there is any possible interpretation that renders the apparent conflict to be harmonious, that is the correct interpretation. Accordingly, since you can't logically change — "I am the LORD, I change not" (see Malachi 3:6, Nu 23:19, Ps 102:27, Jas 1:17) — the EXPRESS prohibitions, the logical INFERRED meaning of Jesus' exhortations in Mt 25:27 and Lu 19:23 is that Jesus was saying that it would have been a lesser sin to put the money out to usury than to bury it until the master's return, as the unfaithful cowardly servant did.

Most Christians are acquainted with 1 Tim 6:10 and its famous exhortation, "For the love of money is the root of all evil" (KJ version). The NIV version says, "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil." Obviously both the language and the meaning are a bit different depending on the version of Bible one is reading. The question arises, what does it really mean? What is the ACCURATE meaning? Let's look at it.

First we need to understand that money and wealth are not necessarily the same thing. Wealth is THINGS (clothes, cars, homes, ad infinitum). Money is the LUBRICANT which makes exchanging/trading our things easier. For example, Person A has apples and wants to exchange them for wheat. Person B has wheat and wants to exchange it for shoes. Person C has shoes and wants to exchange them for apples. To facilitate the necessary exchanges of commodities in society, it is very desirable that there be some universally acceptable commodity/ies for which all three persons, A, B, and C, can exchange the products of their labor in order to obtain, or “buy,” what they need.

Wealth, that is, THINGS, are not evil in and of themselves. In fact, the Bible commands us to work at many verses such as Pr 10:4, 13:4, 14:23, 18:9, 21:25, 28:19, Ec 10:18, Hag 2:4, 2 Th 3:10. Clearly the fair inference is that if we work hard, we are going to be prosperous and have THINGS. That's what wealth is, THINGS. Money is what we trade our things with.

The starting point for misunderstanding money was the invention of special names for the units of monetary measure (e.g. Dinar, Dollar, Drachma, Euro, Franc, Guilder, Gulden, Krona, Lira, Mark, Pengo, Peso, Pound, Rand, Ruble, Rupee, Shekel, Thaler, Yang, Yen, Yuan, etc, etc). In fact, even the very word "money" is, in and of itself, a per se deception because it is an imaginary banker-invented word which, depending on whether it is commodity-based or political-power-based, totally obfuscates the stark life-and-death difference between honest production/labor and criminal theft. As Count Destutt de Tracy, of whom Thomas Jefferson was a fan, recognized, monetary misunderstanding would be much less likely if coins simply bore the specific weight and fineness of the metals they contained. In other words, truth in labeling. The great problem of so-called "money", is that the monetary names are IMAGINARY, while the things we exchange for it are REAL. So you exchange your very real time, education and effort for imaginary monetary units. When the money is made out of a commodity — gold and silver are the only things that can be constitutionally made into a legal tender, forcing sellers to accept it — the exchanges are fair because the COMMODITY money has a commensurate amount of human labor/effort inextricably attached to its production. In that case, we are trading labor for labor. In contrast when the money is created by the raw monopoly-on-violence power of government, what you have then is POLITICAL money, in which case we are trading REAL labor for government's POLITICAL PROMISE (an outright deliberately strategic lie) to pay measurable equal value/labor.

No establishment hack politician will ever talk about the PROVABLE FACT that, according to James Madison's notes of the Federal Convention of 1787, the Founders voted 9-2 against giving the national government the power to print paper money. When reading the words of the Founders, it must be remembered they were discussing the idea of the GOVERNMENT printing paper money. It did not enter the minds of the Founders as even being possible or thinkable that Congress could or would delegate the monetary powers to a cartel of private bankers so they could implement a criminally fraudulent monetary system in which they would make a legal tender out of debt and create infinite amounts of the fraudulent debt-as-money currency out of thin air, on which the U.S. taxpayers are forced to pay interest merely for the “privilege” of the circulation of THEIR OWN CURRENCY in the name of “national debt”.

Most of this message is found near the end of my essay, titled "The Big Lie" (see the banner below), regarding the PROVABLE and DOCUMENTED historical intent of America's Founders regarding money. That essay is written in a format similar to a law review article, and I have gotten feedback from trusted friends who said they thought only about 1% of the citizenry would have the reading skills and focusing power necessary to hack their way through the whole essay.

My strategy in writing this blog and putting my message to Christians at the beginning instead of the end, was that if a Bible-lover read the cited verses and came to the conclusion that my analysis on the subject is correct, they would have more incentive to jump right in and read the history of what the Founders thought and intended on the subject. God does not want his children to choose to remain ignorant. We are specifically instructed by scriptures such as 2 Tim 2:15 to study to show ourselves approved of God.

God does not want Christians to be fearful, see 2 Tim 1:7, Ro 8:37, Isaiah 54:17. I find it fascinating that even human law pretends to give lip service to God's law. Sincerely held religious beliefs are beyond the reach of government. United States v. Ballard, 322 U.S. 78 (1944).

I have done my Christian duty. You have been forewarned. You have been told the unvarnished PROVABLE and DOCUMENTED historical and scriptural truth. Armed with this information, you should be able to read "The Big Lie" and understand exactly why it is that America is in such a huge economic crisis. You will also know what to do about it. Now the question is, are you a REAL Ex 1:17, 1 Sa 8:5-20, Jg 8:22-23, Jg 9, Ps 118:8-9, Ps 146:3, Jer 17:5, Da 3:18, Mt 17:24-27, Acts 4:19, Acts 5:29, Ga 5:1,14,18-23, Php 3:20, 2 Tim 3:5, Jas 2:25 kingship-of-God braveheart Christian protected by the whole armor (Eph 6:10-18) of God, or are you a wussy go-alonger, consent-to-evil (and cooperate with it) Ro 13:1-7; Tit 3:1; Heb 13:17; 1 Pe 2:13; 2 Pe 2:10 kingship-of-man, consumer/client, nominal, so-called “Sunday” 501(c)(3) gubmint "Christian"?

Borrowing from the syntax of Princeton professor A.A. Hodge, "The state is the most appalling enginery for the propagation of anti-Christian and atheistic unbelief, and of anti-social nihilistic ethics, individual, social and political, which this sin-rent world has ever seen." Borrowing from the syntax of Thomas Paine's Age of Reason, "Jesus knew that if a man were impressed as fully and as strongly as he ought to be with a logic-based belief in a God, a fixed point of moral reference, an absolute moral order to the universe, his moral life and behavior would be regulated by the force and power of this belief, he would stand in awe of God and of himself (a creation/child of God), and would not do those things which could not be concealed from either. Jesus also understood that to give this belief/faith the full and fair opportunity of life-governing, life-changing force, it is necessary that the belief/faith acts alone in an atmosphere of free will/freedom/truth completely void of all external coercion." From a logical point of view, I would say that self-evidently excludes the coercion-based, fear-mongering, terror-wielding "state" as we now know it, and are suffering under it.

The unpleasant unvarnished truth is that self-justifying so-called "Christian" usury lovers — I believe "Christian usury lover" is a self-evident oxymoron — are merely serving their own base desires without willing to be honest, transparent and accountable about it. In trying to interpret the meaning of what I have told you, never forget that if, with a pure heart and pure intentions, you ask for wisdom and understanding, God has promised (Mt 7:7) to give it to you.

I especially enjoy the Apostle Paul's farewell to the Romans (Ro 16:16-27). The short version is, "The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) be with you all. Amen (so be it)."

Dying of Money: Lessons of the Great German and American Inflations, by Jens O. Parsson (ISBN-10: 0914688014, ISBN-13: 978-0914688013) - Review by Glenn Corey: "This is simply the best book I have found so far about inflation, how it works, why it's used, its consequences, and everything else about it. It is very well written and addresses the (educated) lay reader in clear and accessible language. All I could say after reading much of it was, "Here we go again." Sound money is just too painful for politicians, so we must all pay the price of their greed or folly. Our elected leaders are too educated and intelligent not to understand how inflation works, and so one must conclude that they don't truly care about the general masses. I suppose it will never stop. But if you're looking for a clear explanation of inflation, look no further." Review by Miami Boy: "I feel like my IQ has increased exponentially by reading this book. It is not light reading. However, if you want to have a very good understanding of how inflation works, then this is the book to read. The author also discusses how politics enter into economic decisions. I find it so amazing how this book was written in the seventies, but is still incredibly relevant today."

As indicated by the following stories, Jackie O apparently was convinced that LBJ, the author of the satanically-inspired 26 USC 501(c)(3), was responsible for the assassination of JFK. I personally have always suspected that, based on the maxim "cui bono?", meaning "who benefits", that LBJ was at the very least the controlling factor in the cover-up.

I distinctly remember a sermon by gifted preacher Joyce Meyer where she spoke to the effect that, "Just because God told you not to eat spaghetti, doesn't mean He told me not to eat it!" The moral which can logically be extrapolated from that story is that one places oneself in a very risky spiritual position if one sees fit to criticize someone else's ministry. It is precisely because I so very much admire the accomplishments of Dave Ramsey and Rick Warren — I have bought and read some of their books — that I have taken care not to condemn them or their ministries personally. I agree with most of what they say. It is what they omit — particularly as those omissions impact their followers' intellectual curiosity regarding what the intent of America's Founders was and what the U.S. Constitution has to say on the subject of mediums of exchange (aka "money") — that I take strong exception to. It has always been my intent that that this should be a theological discussion about scriptural principles.

As I was researching for this blog,I ran across a couple of articles about Dave Ramsey's new multi-million-dollar mansion on a website called "Bible Money Matters". I thought it was both amusing and instructional to watch a couple of Christians tiptoe through language as they go at each other (in a politically acceptable "Christian" way, of course. When in front of Christian audiences, it is always effective to play the "humble card", admit fallibility and the possibility of making mistakes and ask for your opponent to pray for you. I'm not making an accusation, because no man knows the heart of another. Only God knows that. But, per 1 Thes 5:21, taking all known facts into contextual consideration, an alert spiritually-minded person has to be at least open to the possibility of spiritual manipulation. The Enemy is very tricky indeed!

In examining intent per 1 Thes 5:21, it is instructional to refer to judges of human law: "Acts should be judged by their tendency under the known circumstances, not by the actual intent which accompanies them. The Common Law, by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Since ecclesiastical politicians have, via 501c3, voluntarily subjected themselves to Satan's jurisdiction of human law, it is therefore reasonable to judge the intent of 501c3 Pharisees' omissions by the very real results those omissions have on their followers and American culture generally. Hence the reason I exhort them to remedy those omissions by preaching the WHOLE truth about money, usury and debt found in the Bible.

FOOTNOTES

1. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver, and why "political" = deception-based, or having to do with deception. Everybody is competing for political power to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical impossibility, most of their promises of necessity get broken. Because they know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. After all, the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, were murderers. In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and an implacable deadly enemy to individual freedom.

2. On page 795 in my Amplified Bible, as a footnote on the word "interest" in Psalm 15:5, is found the following: "Israel was originally not a mercantile people, and the law aimed at an equal diffusion of wealth, not at enriching some while others were poor. The spirit of the law still is obligatory--not to take advantage of a brother's distress to lend at interest ruinous to him--but the letter of the law is abrogated, and a loan at moderate interest is often of great service to the poor. Hence, it is referred to by our Lord in parables, apparently as a lawful as well as recognized usage. (Matt. 25:27; Luke 19:23)" (A.R. Fausset, Bible Encyclopedia and Dictionary). At least one biography of A.R. Fausset is online. His statement, "the spirit of the law still is obligatory ... but the letter of the law is abrogated" is, simply put, utterly ignorant, and so dangerous as to perhaps even be Satan-inspired. It totally ignores all "I am the Lord, I change not" scriptures. Fausset apparently knew very little about human law and its doctrine of "conflict of laws" as that logically applies (per 1 Thes 5:21) to interpretation of Scripture. Sin is sin. Nothing that is evil has ever somehow magically turned into good, and nothing that is good has turned into evil. Good and evil have not changed since the beginning of time. Neither the letter nor the spirit of that God-based fact can ever change. Human nature does not change. Coveting your neighbor's goods and trying steal his labor through clever devices will always be anti-self-ownership, aka "evil", aka "sin". America's 26 USC 501(c)(3) pulpits are actually assisting Caesar in his tyranny, murder, theft and sin IN THE NAME OF GOD! America's ecclesiastical politicians need to read "In Caesar's Grip", by Peter Kershaw, and change their stinking little lives. They need to fall on their knees, per 2 Chronicles 7:14, beg God's forgiveness, repudiate 26 USC 501(c)(3) and start teaching their congregations THE WHOLE TRUTH about mediums of exchange (aka "money"), usury and gubmint found in the Bible.
