So maybe I have been wasting time living a life of self-examination and awareness, practicing good mental, physical and spiritual exercise and following the Franklin method of growth. I am just a click away from SERENITY NOW!!!!!
I also got an offer to finance a home through the CHRISTIAN LENDING NETWORK. Their come on reads:
NEED THE HOME LOAN OF YOUR DREAMS OUR NETWORK OF CHRISTIAN LENDERS COMPETE TO GIVE YOU THE BEST RATES.
"Good will come to him that is generous and lends freely" PSALM 112:5
Further proof that the USA is devolving into a hard line Christian society? A plot to speed up the Rapture? A good marketing ploy?
This is a far cry from the interpretation of scripture that for hundreds of years forbid Christians from lending and profiting which led to the admittance of Jews into societies to be moneylenders (and then inevitably forced them out when state funds ran out and could not be paid back - hello pogrom hello expulsion).
Ahhh, the never ending joys of the Internet. What worlds have been opened up to me. What knowledge, what freedom, what intellectual capital, what human connection what stimulation and contemplation.
