Are you being financially raped or are you being a sloth at work? Who determines what is the 'sloth factor'? Is it conjecture or fact? Is it management perpetrating its guilt upon those they are just barely paying enough so that they have to show up every day to do a 'job' that they cannot afford to be without? Are banks and corporations financially raping their workers and clients or are workers being ‘sloths’ in the work environment? Let's examine the truth here and not supposition.
Last year I was informed by an obvious neophyte who takes what the Bible saysliterally that I don’t have a clue what I am talking about and that it is my ego that has ‘attacked’ her for making obvious conclusions about the ‘Word’ that are just not true by her understanding. When anyone misses the theme of what has been said in the ‘Word’ it reveals that their understanding has fallen short of what was actually being said and what meaning is derived from what is said.
Yeshua demonstrated what he said time and time again and if anyone misses the ‘results’ of those demonstrations in accordance with the ‘Word’ it reveals that their understanding is not taking the whole picture into account. When anyone uses other people to take advantage of them they are not aligning themselves with the Spirit of God. They are taking what they have been freely given andusing it to hurt or exploit another.
Why would anyone with half-a-brain defend the aberrance of ‘financial rape’ unless they do not have a complete understanding of this principle? Why would they attack someone who points this out and accuse them of judging another instead of seeing that what was said was in alignment with the teachings of Yeshua? Why would they attack that person and claim that their ego is out of control? Is it because they believe it is OK to financially rape another human being? Or is it because they do not completely understand the ‘theme’ of what is being said?
Whatever it may be one thing is obvious. When you defend aberrant behaviors, infirmities and ego you are not clearly seeing the truth. Perhaps I am just as guilty as this person but I will NOT compromise on the FACT that if you use another person for your own gain without fairly compensating them you are taking advantage of them and you are NOT following divine principles; you are being selfish and self-centered. If anyone cannot see this, I sincerely hope and pray that perhaps someday you will. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
