The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Has GoFundMe and other Crowdfunding sites become the 21st century street corner for begging?

Online funding sites like GoFundMe and Kickstarter have done wonders in the realm of alternative finance where small businesses, esoteric products and services, and even charitable concerns can get public funding since banks no longer provide these services after the Credit Crisis of 2008.  In fact, crowdfunding has helped many people to do wondrous things over the past few years, with one of the most notable accomplishments being the producing of a Veronica Mars movie that had been clamored for by rabid fans for several years.
But like with nearly every new and innovative idea, there are always one or more individuals who use these platforms to either con or scheme to get money for themselves without actually producing or providing a tangible return to those who voluntarily give to that ’cause’.

Charity frauds reach upper echelons as $500 million in contributions for Haiti lost in bureaucracy

As consumer watchdog groups follow in the footsteps of the great Ralph Nader, the realization that non-profit charities are more about big business than in aiding people has for a long time been a question on the minds of many.  And at the highest level of domestic and local charities is that of the Red Cross, who in a new report from June 6 showed that the incompetence of the organization’s massive bureaucracy lost track of nearly $500 million in donations that were supposed to go directly to the people of Haiti after the earthquake that totaled the island.
According to an investigation by NPR and ProPublica, $500 million in charitable contributions that were made immediately after the disaster, and that were publicly announced by the Red Cross to go for the rebuilding of hundreds of homes to provide shelter for close to 130,000 displaced residents, was squandered and ‘lost’, and they have no answer for what happened to most of that money.  And in five years time, only six homes have been built out of the promised 700 publicly announced by the organization.

This is what happens when Christians give to the building and not the Temple

Christian tithes and donations in America is a billion dollars business.  Churches, ministries, and especially televangelists feel that it requires vast sums of money to to what they call, 'spreading the Gospel'.

Unfortunately, these men and institutions forget that spreading the Gospel was a form of network marketing, not corporatism, and in the bible Jesus only needed 12 men with just the robes on their backs to do what millions today require billions of dollars to accomplish.

However, just because a man (or woman) has an ecclesiastical title in front of their names, does not mean they are doing the true work of God, nor are they producing the fruit that Jesus said would come when people accomplished things in His name.  In a new story out on the fraud and corruption of the American church system, millions of dollars donated by well-minded Christians are going to fund extravagent lifestyles for the select 1%ers, and little is done to actually preach the true Word of God in exchange.




Two former employees of the world's largest Christian television channel Trinity Broadcasting Network are accusing the non-profit of spending $50 million of its funding on extravagant personal expenses.
Among purchases, the network founded by Televangelists the network founded by Televangelists Paul and Jan Crouch, is accused of misappropriating its 'charitable assets' toward a $50 million jet, 13 mansions and a $100,000-mobile home for Mrs Crouch's dogs. - Daily Mail


All of this should not be surprising to those who do a little research, since its common knowledge that the Vatican is one of the wealthiest institutons in the world, along with the Mormon church, which has a $50 billion industry of its own.

In the bible, tithes were supposed to be paid to the priests and the temple for the work they do for God, but in the New Testament, each individual beleiver IS the High Priest, and their bodies are the temple for it contains the Spirit of God.  Thus the choice becomes... stop giving to corporations who use the name of God to enrich themselves and start giving individually to fellow Christians who need assistance, for you will be following the EXACT will of Christ and the New Covenant.

Commodities exchange blames MF Global for lack of charitable giving this year

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Group has decided that because of the MF Global theft of customer accounts in the commodities realm, they will have to skip their normal donations to charity this Christmas to instead focus on paying back clients who had their money and accounts stolen, and subsequent contracts defaulted.

CME Group Inc, which has given $22 million to Chicago-area schools and charities over the past five years, has stopped making grants through its main foundation, citing the collapse of MF Global Holdings Inc.
Investigators are still searching for hundreds of millions of dollars of customer funds that CME says were improperly siphoned off Pin the brokerage's final days to plug its escalating liquidity needs. - Hartford Courant

Lets just hope the CME doesnt think those who lost tons of money to the greed of Wall Street are to be seen as charity, and that repayment is voluntary, or simply a good tax write-off.

Hockey fans have the most entertaining ways of giving to charity

Many hockey fans know tradition of throwing hats (or octopi in the case of Detroit) onto the ice in recognition for scoring a hat trick in a game.  The traditon of throwing things onto the ice however, is not limited to idol worship as these fans in Calgary prove.  For the 17th year in a row, fans of the Calgary Hitmen show their philanthropic side during the Christmas season by throwing stuffed animals onto the ice after the first goal.


Who says you can't have fun giving to charity?  The 25,000+ stuffed animals and teddy bears will be going to a great cause, as they will provide gifts to children's hospitals.  And in giving, these hockey fans certainly have a ball doing so.
