The Greed Foundation.

Welcome ladies and gentlemen for being selected to join the inner ranks of the Greed Foundation. You will find truths about this foundation that are not visible to the public.

 

Here is a brief introduction.

 

I like to compare this foundation to an iceberg floating in the sea. The outside world can only see the parts above the water but of the contents are below it. The Greed Foundation that you know until now are only the visible part. As you are now being inducted into the inner ranks, you will get to know the real mechanism of the whole foundation, its purpose and basically what it is all about.

 

The visible part, as you know is no different from any other charitable foundations. We operate orphanages, set up farming cooperatives, provide clean water, education, training, healthcare and other necessities to the poor around the world but that are only the superficials. Yes, the rumours are true. We have an insidious motive.

 

Here is how we got started. I was trained as an engineer but I made my windfall from taking advantage of the weaknesses of the world’s financial system. After that, my greed has driven me to find more weaknesses in order to exploit them.

 

Part of my plan is to set up a system to predict the future. So, I spared no expenses to get the best minds and machineries to create a model to predict the direction of the world. My investments have paid off very well. I made even more money because I knew of the booms and bursts before they occur. The more money I made, the more I invest to improve the system.

 

Then, as the model gets more sophisticated, it produced something I never expected. To make it short, the model predicted that the human civilisation that we of will end in 30 years with the error of 5 years. By the way we have already passed 5 years.

 

It came as a shock and I decided that I have to do something about it. Thus the Greed Foundation. Its purpose is as follow:

  1. Eliminate or at least reduce the severity of the causes identified by the model.
  2. Should the collapse is inevitable, I seek to delay it in order to make preparations for it.
  3. When it finally happens, I need a strong organisation to hold humanity until a new civilisation is involved.

 

The first objective is executed through our charity works. We seek to set up self-sufficient communities around the world. Those who can live with minimal contact with the rest of the world are the ones most likely to survive the civilisation collapse. So, far we believe that we can only make lesser people suffer but unable to prevent the collapse itself.

 

The 2nd objective is related to the 1st. It is covered by the seemingly charity works we do.

 

The 3rd is the reason you are here. Once governments collapse, there will be anarchy. Humanity might be driven back to the Stone Age. At this time, I hope that this foundation will be in position to organise humanity to sustain all the achievements we have attained.

 

Don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to be the emperor of the world. I prefer to run things behind the scenes and let someone else be the front man. However, should the situation turns out really bad, the Greed Foundation will have to come forth to save humanity.

 

Now, let us talk about you. As long as you are here, I can assure you that you will not be in want. Nothing you desire will be denied from you. I am referring to thing money can buy, of course. Your families will never starve again.

 

Later, you will be sent to our flagship “Unbridled Greed” for the full introduction of the foundation before you are assigned based on your expertise.

 

Finally, I just want to remind you that you are not serving me. You are serving humanity from destruction.

 

Goodbye and good luck.

Sin Is Good

8 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar and showing that his word has no place in our hearts.

1 John 1:8-10 (NLT)

 

I have this message in my mind for weeks and I think it is time to let it out.

 

What is your response to sin? By “sin”, I am referring to your own sin, not others. Basically, there are 2 extreme ways people deal with it, which I call:

  1. Paranoid way
  2. Ignore way

 

The first is the type where people behave like they are crazy each time they sin. They will behave like they are going to hell and beg God for forgiveness as though Jesus never died for their sins at the Cross. These folks really believed that a believer must never sin. They forget that according to the above verses, even if they managed to achieve such a “sinless” state, they still commit the sin of lying. So, people like that can’t really live for long.

 

The second type is comparatively better. Each time they sin, they do not make a big deal over it because they believe all their sins have been paid for. However, the problem is they do not make any effort to make corrections. As a result, the sin stays.

 

What is the right way to deal with our sins? The answer is, we should not be paranoid over it but neither should we ignore it. In order to understand it, we need to know its nature. Why is a sin, a sin? Is it because God is trying to pull rank? No, a sin is a sin because it is bad for us.

 

Let me put it another way. Sin hinders our prosperity on earth. Prosperity is more than just having a lot of money. It also covers our ability to enjoy it. Sin is the thing that blocks it.

 

Let me give you an example. Suppose you are addicted to smoking. What is happening to you now? I can guess the following: You are spending quite a lot of money in cigarettes and healthcare.

 

Both items cost money. If you can overcome this addiction, it will be like having an additional sum of money appearing in your bank account.

 

The other one is gambling addiction. If you really have this problem, you will never be rich. Even if you have a mountain of gold, you will still be poor because you will gamble them away. So, the only solution is for you to get rid of this sin in order for you to have a shot of becoming rich.

 

The last example I am giving you is adultery. It cost money and damage families. Having a lot of money will not result in much joy if your family is broken.

 

The above are just some examples I bring up to show that sin is something we need to work on if we are truly serious on living a prosperous life.

 

Why then do I choose the title that says “Sin is good.” The answer is, it points out the area we need to improve on. It is only when we realise we have sin in certain areas, then we know the direction we should go to fix it.

 

This is also the meaning to the above verses. We need to confess our sins. The term “confess” does not mean begging God for forgiveness. All our sins have been forgiven –past, present and future. The only thing left is to deal with it for reasons I stated above. If you can do it, good for you. If not, there is a God to seek help from. The above verses give us the guaranteed assurance that God has committed to help us to deal with our sins. All that is left is our willingness to work with him.

 

The final truth I want to share now is God’s position on sin. God is always on our side against our sins. He will never be against us for our sins. No matter what sins you have, God is on your side working with you to overcome it.

 

This is the truth I am sharing.
