Family Financial Issues
« on: February 03, 2014, 09:11:32 PM »
So my family owns three properties and is about to sell one (our current home) because the demonically accursed and wretched bankers, the servants of hell, want to play games with interest and all of that. If there is any sin that angers me more along with abortion it is usury, by which the greedy and unscrupulous do not scruple to do injury to the body politic. There is plenty among the fathers written against usury and the evil of lending at interest because of the harm it does to society. Well, pray for us. We're not in horrible financial straights but pray that things work out. Pray for my anger that I will not make foolish comments about the Jews in my anger, which gives scandal to my family. My mother is Mormon and she does not understand the evil of usury sin Mormonism does not understand that to be evil or teach that it is. And my father, well, he's not even Christian so he sees no evil in the lack of scruple in how the money lenders work. I am trying to convince them to act rationally in how they go about this and it seems they are, more or less. But pray that things work out and that I keep my temper. There is also some marital problems between my parents dealing with money, so that makes things worse. I just want what is best for my mother especially because she works so hard and I feel a hatred that is hard to control for the greedy.

Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
