|Work for peace, no more war
I didn't realize I was promoting war. I don't want war. I'm not in Washington holding signs that say "please go to war." I havn't killed any animals other than the fly that was on my vegan dinner last week. I am a Christian, and I want peace in the world. I don't want any bad things to happen. I don't drive a car that pollutes the environment.
There are some very powerful people in our government who are doing evil things. They say they are Christians, but they are not. If you research the "Illuminati" you will find that they are actually devil worshipers. So, once again, you have the devil using people to do evil. The devil is deceitful and lies and says he is good, when he is not. There are some true Christians out there trying to warn everyone of these evil people, trying to get the TRUTH out there so that everyone can follow God's plan, and not the devil's plan.
I agree that there are some people out there who are predicting the future, who seem to be promoting events that lead to the end times, and there are people in power who are not earth friendly, and who have their fun with hookers. But these are not the people that Jesus is coming for. These people are the devil worshipers who will be spending an eternity in hell.
There are other people who love Jesus, who want to help others, be loving, and are talking (yes, JUST TALKING) about events that are to come. It doesn't mean they are promoting these events. It doesn't mean they are getting rich from talking about these events (writing books doesn't make you a millionaire, in case you didn't know). Even people who are making money from their books are not all bad people. They are trying to get a message out there, and they just happen to be able to bring home a small paycheck to support their family if they sell a few books. And, yes, some of them even donate money to needy people. These are the people that are doing God's work, and these are NOT bad people. You can't assume that everyone who makes money from book sales or interviews is evil. If they didn't make any money, they wouldn't be able to spread their message. It's just like a minister in a church. The church members give their offering (to God) and the minister gets paid a salary from the offering. It's not because the minister is greedy. He needs to buy groceries, just like the rest of us. It's the job he's chosen to do. It is a JOB. It does
result in a paycheck. That doesn't make him a bad person.
I have a home business. I sell products to people. They pay me money, and I use that money to pay bills, and tithe to the church. The business that I have just happens to be a business that provides memorial products to comfort those who have lost a loved one. I enjoy bringing comfort to people who have lost someone they love. It is something that I have chosen to do. If I gave everything away at cost, and chose not to make any money doing it, then I wouldn't be ABLE to do it. I would have to go out and get a REAL job, to help pay the bills. Then there would not be a website like my website to offer these special products to people who need items of comfort. I wish I could give these things away for free, but I'm just a regular person who has bills like everyone else. I need money coming in, so I can help put food on the table. Just because I make a profit, that doesn't make me an evil monster, does it? My intentions are good. I'm showing love and compassion to others through what I do. I donate items when I can.
You need to be able to separate the people who say they are good (but who are really evil) and the people who are truly good. Nobody out there is perfect. Even good Christians make lots of mistakes, but don't beat up the people who have a good heart and are truly trying to do the right thing.
