Pray for Less Stress Among the Super Rich
 
There have always been studies about poor people and their problems. Oh, they don't where their next meal is coming from, they need to see a doctor, there and rats in their apartment, etc etc. These go on and on.

What we have not had enough of are studies about the stress rich people are forced to live with. Now we are learning they live stress filled lives. Yes, the stresses are different but they are there.

Think about how much more complicated a romantic relationship is for a rich person. Rich people have to wonder if every potential partner is after me or my money.

Rich people often have important companies and jobs. They also have enough money to enjoy themselves when not working. The stress is this conflict between their professional obligations and the desire to enjoy their wealth.

Frankly, I've seen enough lamenting about the plight of the poor. It's time to recognize rich people deserve our prayers as much as the poor.

I agree Mr. Johny Joe Hold, we should pray for the rich more. So many rich people stress so much and they don't have the peace from Jesus Christ. Plus, Jesus said it's hard for them to enter heaven!

Matthew 19:23-24

Matthew 19:23-24

Wouldn't that just stress a wealthy person out, knowing about Matthew 19:24? He would be looking at camels and comparing his size to the size of a camel. "It's obvious," he would say, "A camel cannot fit through the eye of a needle. But, I am somewhat smaller. I wonder." No doubt some super wealthy people are nervous wrecks.

They need us. We should pray for them.

Greetings!

All of the very rich people are white people except for Kanye and he is only rich because he is married to a white woman so he does not count. Rich white people feel stress because of the way they have treated the Black man and kept us enslaved for 400 years. And so they have developed a slavish mentality and spend their time drinking martinis except for when they come to the beaches in my home country which is Jamaica to drink rum and turn red in the sun. I believe the rich white men could assuage their terrible guilt by beginning the payment of reparations to Black people for their enslavement. I myself am attending Georgetown University on a full scholarship due to the fact that the Jesuits there once held my ancestors as slaves and I am certain they feel a great deal of relief knowing that I a Black man will soon be performing delicate brain surgery on white people due to my education as a physician.

I am a student of great merit and an intellectual and I believe that the rich white people will feel much better about everything once they have paid for their guilty sins and those of their ancestors. I myself would be happy to assist any of my white friends in the shedding of their guilt and I would be able to provide a certificate of payment to any who choose to avail themselves of my assistance.

I agree, I Man, that lots of groups feel guilt. Jews feel guilt for murdering Jesus. Women feel guilt because Eve committed the Original Sin.

But, I Man, don't people of the Negro race feel guilt for getting a free boat ride to the U.S. and afterwards free citizenship. It seems to me you Negro people took advantage of us white people at a time when we where vulnerable--worrying ourselves sick about how to get the cotton harvested.

I assume that word you used, "reparations," refers to paying for transportation from Africa, plus interest.

WilliamJenningsBryan 10-08-2019 07:35 PM

Re: Pray for Less Stress Among the Super Rich
 
It's almost an established fact that the nigra slaves that wound up in America were inferior merchandise. The white man didn't go to Africa and round up slaves - it was much too dangerous, not to mention the stories of early Christian missionaries that would up in a boiling pot of water and were eaten by cannibals.

The "slaves" we're talking about were rounded up by their "brothers" - of different tribes to make money, and the ones that were caught couldn't run fast enough from their "brothers" to avoid capture. Sure, there were some white men with ships waiting along the coast, but there were also some A-rabs (need we say mooselimbs) also in on the action - and we all know how they like to haggle.

We've all seen that movie "Roots" where descendants of slaves go back to Africa and find their ancesters and villages where they were captured - all LIEberal tear jerker propaganda. If they were really going to seek "reparations" they would be hunting down the villages and ancestors that captured them - and maybe time for a little payback, like whoomping some ass.

So now we're left with some nigras that, despite being offered millions of dollars, won't play football, refuse to stand for the National Anthem, and then complain that no one wants to hire them because of - racism. As usual, they're lining up to vote Democrat to keep those free EBT cards coming.

Lastly, there is the matter of Jesus - and the ancesters of those missionaries that they boiled and ate. We need a little reparation there as well.

Matthew 19:23-24

Thanks for posting the Scripture recording Christ's Own Words explaining that, although difficult, it's not impossible for rich people to enter Heaven. Sometimes crazies (social liberals swinging their wrecking ball to challenge Biblical marriage, leaders of blasphemous cults such as EMO and goth, catholics taking vows of chastity or poverty, hindoo cave-dwelling ascetics, maniacs promoting self-flagellation, it's a long list but you get the idea) claim that wealth prevents advancement to Heaven (or wherever they think they go) but we just need to remember King David—to name but one—to see that it can't possibly be so.
I Chronicles 22:14-16 Now, behold, in my trouble [King David speaking] I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto. Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work. Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and the LORD be with thee.
A talent is quite a heavy weight which is easy to look up if you're interested. The point here is that David possessed such quantities in the first place.
Hebrews 11:32-33

Thank you, Sister, for that gift of Scripture. I've been praying recently, not only for the wealthy President Trump, but for his wealthy children. I read Donald Jr. got divorced. Surely that, and the President's own divorces, is in part due to the stress of all the wealth in that family.

We can't even beat our stress by relaxing in our private theaters and watching a movie. Billionaires are under-represented by Hollywood. Also, when billionaires are portrayed, it's by actors who are not billionaires - exactly like blackface, or whitecasting. Poorcasting, we should call it.

It's been proven by sociologists that older, upper class white men have the highest suicide rates of anyone in the country. The group with the lowest? Elderly, lower class black women. We need to start encouraging the Madeas of the world to start offing themselves to remedy this grotesque injustice. Does Aunt Jemima have more of a right to live than Charles Koch? Ridiculous!

Ridiculous indeed. I've been praying for Jeff Bezos. He owns Amazon and has been hounded by the tabloids. All he did was have a lady friend when he was married. His divorce caused him stress because his wife got $30 Billion of his $150 Billion.

It is certain to harm his health. To reduce worry about his financial future he does not give much to charity.

Oh, it is of great concern -- that is most certain, dear Brother Mayor Hold. The stress that our dear rich President Trump goes through is unquestionable, what with Demonrats trying constantly to knock him out of the Oval Office. It must be a great burden for the President, trying his best to make :america: great again, build the border wall, etc., whilst still having the worries of his personal property to think about. Why, we must remember how his fortunes took a beating when he was forced to declare bankruptcy so many times. I do pray that his tax cuts for the 1% will be of some relief to him and his blessed family. But, I pray for protection from the :lord-fancy:, in general, for others in this situation.

Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

For example, how the poor Queen of England manages to afford to keep the lights on in her houses is beyond me, especially with that Brexit going down the drains. At least, she and our President were able to forget their worries and to share a laugh or two when they were together.

A blessed day to you, Dear,

This is probably why, in spite of having more and tastier food to eat, the wealthier folks among us tend to keep ourselves in better shape than the feckless poor, who have a tendency towards lardiness.

Re: Pray for Less Stress Among the Super Rich
 
Speaking of Matthew 19:24, that verse seems to get misinterpreted by fluffy bunny liberal "Christians" almost as much as the first half of John 3:16. As I explained to the homeless veteran who ignorantly quoted scripture (NIV, of course) at me the other day when I refused to "spare a dollar," Jesus Christ was NOT criticizing the wealthy!!! Not only do such interpretations disregard Galatians 3:28, but they imply a heretical worldview in which the souls of the deceased can take their possessions with them into the afterlife. While multiple True Christian™ pastors have assured me that the generosity of your earthly tithes will be reflected in your Heavenly accomodations, the idea that you will have your riches literally with you when you stand before God for judgment is blasphemous. Those assets are still on earth, rightfully inherited by the rich man's children or else bequeathed to conservative organizations and PACs. The next time a socialist liberal or homeless bum shouts Matthew 19:24 at you without context, be aware that you are dealing with an Egyptian neo-pagan, not a Christian.

Of course, come the destruction of the Earth (Isaiah 24 - such a very beautiful chapter), there will remain nothing for anyone to inherit. I find this very reassuring: after all, why not tithe now while we still can?

Re: Pray for Less Stress Among the Super Rich
 
I've always noticed how Jesu's disciples were often employers.
Luke 4:44 – 5:7a And [Jesus] preached in the synagogues of Galilee. And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them.
Only proprietors (in this case a partnership) have the authority do do that. And not running a pedalo operation. A commercial fishery. Employees would see what happened and be able to convert but His primary witness here is to employers.

My dear, Christ was not an incel! :nono: Women were practically throwing themselves at His feet:

Luke 7:37-38
37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

John 12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

Has any woman, ever, offer to annoint your feet? I don't think so - otherwise, you wouldn't be the laughing stock of the society known as incel! :rofl3:

The rich white people of Babylon became wealthy by enslaving African Black men to do all the work and never giving them pay. They are haunted by the crimes of their ancestors and they need to deal with the sins they have been bequeathed. If they could lead the way to reconciliation with the Black man by providing just reparations for the enslavement of our ancestors they would feel better about the terrible things they are responsible for. I myself would volunteer to accept and appropriately disburse what ever monies are required to expiate the sins of these rich white people and while I would be one of the recipients I would take no more than a small administrative fee for my services. Once the monies are paid everyone will be more content.

Dear Mr. Rastafari: Kindly cease from making such outrageous statements of utter rubbish. I note that you have no empathy toward the plight of the rich people who employ the services of many people, and to provide for their sustenance. As for whatever you've said about payments and other nonsense, I think you shall see in the attached photo that most nigras are not complaining and that they appear to be very content. Not only that, they are being treated very kindly by a white woman with substantial wealth. If you pity anybody, then it should be for that woman for constantly opening her doors and for extending hospitable measures to strangers!

That woman is drunk on gin and she has put gloves on before shaking the hands of those Black people. That is hardly welcoming I think. Also the man in the picture is not wearing a tea cozy. That is a traditional hat of the type everyone wore when Black men ruled the world. The white woman looks like a rich English woman and she may be worried that the Black man in the hat is the true king of the English. King James who is responsible for the King James Bible was a Black man. The Black kings of England were eliminated by the white people like they drove down the Black man from leadership positions everywhere.

Dear Mr. Rastafari: Can you kindly provide proof that the Queen is drunk? And, if so, how do you know that it's from imbibing gin? No proof; well, how surprising is that? I didn't think so! The truth is: you have no proof -- none at all! This is just another of your smear campaigns, due to your disgusting resentment toward upstanding, white persons.

As for your complaint that the wearing of gloves makes the occasion "hardly welcoming", does it look like the people in that photo are upset? No, they appear to be relaxed and comfortable. I shall refer you to the first of two attached photos. Study it carefully. You will see another woman wearing gloves, as this is considered to be fashionable in certain situations.

And, as for the dribbling drivel that you've provided about the nigra's hat, that is more nonsense. Anybody can see that it's a tea cosy, and it's no different from the type that I have knitted, from the second photo.

It is really a low blow, Mr. I Man, to say the Queen is wearing gloves to protect herself from the germs of black people. She is not afforded an aid with anti bacterial wipes that President Trump has with him in all public events.

Wearing gloves is a poor country's way of dealing with germs. She may be saving her life by wearing them.

Oh, this is so very true, dear Brother Mayor Hold, and I thank you so much for mentioning this to that Mr. Riff-Raff Rastafari. Why, not only must the Queen protect herself from common germs by wearing gloves, she's even given a pair to our Godly First Lady, Mrs. Trump. And since Mrs. Trump is not used to needing such protection, why, I think it's very nice of the Queen to have given her a pair with extra length for maximum protection.

Absolutely true, Brother Mr Mayor, Sir. I always wear gloves when meeting foreigners. You just don't know where their hands have been. Plus, there is the question of sweaty palms. Gloves impregnated with foul-smelling foreign sweat can quite easily be changed and the soiled ones incinerated, whereas it is unladylike and unhygienic to be forever wiping your hands on your evening dress.

You will notice that Prince Charles's wife does not even care! This is why the British are keen to keep the Queen alive - at least for the time being.

Now I see that the old white woman in the picture who would not take off her gloves to shake the hands of Black people from the motherland is the Queen of England. But why is she in a picture with President Donald Trump who is a racist and leader of the white nationalists? Have the English now made him their king?

I don't understand why they pay these countries in Real American Dollars, which can't even be spent in their quaint local markets. Take, for instance, the laughably mis-named Democratic Republic of the Congo. They use Congo dollars, which for some reason are called francs and are currently worth US$0.00006 (give or take a zero) each. Now if their "reparations" of $2.398 billion were paid in the local currency, that would have the double benefit of (a) being spendable locally, hiring Congoloid tradesmen to work on whatever repairs are needed and (b) costing the rest of the world only about $1.4 million.

If reparations are being made it is news to I and it is a great victory for the Black man but I have not yet seen any monies that came to I as reparations. The Jesuit people here at Georgetown University have admitted their guilt in the Black genocide and have made amends by offering me an education as a brain surgeon as well as a place to live which I must share with several white people and they provide a small stipend to pay for ganja, tooth paste and coconut oil for the dreads. They at least have paid what they owe but the rest of the white people are slow in paying for the misery they have caused the Black man and especially I. Except for the small stipend that I receive from the Jesuits here I have received no cash compensation for the toil and sweat of my ancestors. Once Beto is President he will probably make payment of reparations his first policy after he disarms the white people.

If they could lead the way to reconciliation with the Black man by providing just reparations for the enslavement of our ancestors they would feel better about the terrible things they are responsible for. I myself would volunteer to accept and appropriately disburse what ever monies are required to expiate the sins of these rich white people and while I would be one of the recipients I would take no more than a small administrative fee for my services. Once the monies are paid everyone will be more content.

The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have conserved their racial purity by a lack of affinity with washing, have seen their patch invaded by a different kind of slave: The Portuguese. the black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead. -CodeBlazeFate

The important question is: what drugs are you on, sweetie? That Trevor guy is high on marijuana each time he posts, yet he's perfectly capable of construing coherent sentences and presenting semi-coherent lines of thought. You should try to learn from him, Cody! (Unless your brain is too damaged already from the long-time use of drugs, of course).

I think you are on to something, here, Sister Basilissa. When someone comes on here and says Negro people have preserved their race they are not in touch with reality. I Man, for example, is trying to go to college. The slaves on the ships had Ph.D's? Haha. To preserve their history in the U.S. Negro people need to be slaves.

Did you have a figure in mind? If you're thinking in trillions you'll need to look up how many trillions actually exist, which will be fairly easy. I'm glad you're thinking about this and that you're doing so here where others can see your questions presented in a setting where Scripture is available for reliable answers. It's always a pleasure to present God's perspective just as it's recorded for us and always exciting to see another draw nearer to Him.

I am uncertain exactly how much money will be required for white people to receive relief for the terrible guilt they carry with them for enslaving the Black man but I am certain that I will be needing a Range Rover and a sufficient sum of money to buy a house with a swimming pool and a butler that is located in Hollywood California near Snoop Dog who has become Rastafari. Also I will have expenses dealing with maintenance and upkeep and the costs associated with my entourage. I think that perhaps 25 million dollars would be sufficient but I am not involved in finance and I am uncertain as to how long such a sum would last. Perhaps the use of charts and lists of numbers could be used to determine how much in money I should receive. I will welcome any input from my white friends as long as they are in favor of this plan.

So few realize the super rich really care. Leon Cooperman is a man with three billion dollars.

Recently, he wrote candidate Elizabeth Warren and pleaded with her so stop demonizing the super rich. What good does it do to focus criticism on people who are trying to build this country, he asked. His eyes filled with tears in a CNBC interview.

"I have no problem with giving it away in the end. I want to control the giving". What a passionate and heartfelt speech. Trickle down charity at its finest. I think more rich people should be given tax cuts so they can decide which charities to give their money to.

With government, it's 50/50. You have some Republicans in office to spend the money wisely, (eg. on military spending) and some Democrats to spend it foolishly, (eg. on welfare queens).


This is an acceptable trade off if you're taxing poor people who will most likely waste most if not all of the money ( note how even when poor people are miraculously granted money they waste ithttps://www.thepennyhoarder.com/save...o-lost-it-all/ ), but not with smart rich people who would spend most if not all of the money wisely. They're probably spending almost all of it on job creation and donating to charities.

As if there was not enough for the super rich to worry about, I just read that if you compare the total money held by the super rich at the beginning of last year and what they had at the beginning of this year they LOST 388 billion dollars.

This catastrophic loss is larger than any other group in the world. Poor people can whine about what they have to do without, but I'm not impressed.

A lot of this loss was suffered by billionaires in China but it makes the point we are discussing here, the super rich live in a high stress world. They need our prayers.

This is what happens when certain regions manipulate their exchange rates to compensate for tariffs by more than can be made up through arbitrage.
