We are talking about sayings in this article, old wise tales, and/or old phrases we are all familiar with because we have heard them all our lives. Let's discuss what they meant to us or mean to us, and how we came to understand or articulate what a phrase means. Mason breaks it down and I'm sure you all will find this very interesting.

Well it’s like we say this is what the seven deadly sins is based on excessive Behavior. It doesn’t Shock Me to learn most of our bad traits start in church. I can honestly see exactly how we started or how we learned to blame the victims. I think it is first important to stress like Mason did that God or the most high does not place any value in money. That is a human thing. And I like the breakdown of what giving entails. We can all be cheerful givers if we give more what is needed and sometimes that is not money.

Okay…so the lies and deception clearly start in church. Ah this is where we learn how to treat each other. Mason slowly reveals everything doesn’t she? No wonder you get a headache every time you go to church. The bullshit must be stifling. For what purpose is it necessary to blame the victims? I mean I don’t understand their logic. I see it but I don’t understand what the primary goal is in their reasoning.

Well I guess now I can understand why I dislike church so much. I can also understand why Mason came away with a headache every time she attended. I can’t remember way back when Mason used to tell us about tithing she always said something about that never resonated with her. It’s excessive it interferes with a lot of people’s ability to manage it. They wanted Faithfully this is true some Churches have automatic withdrawals from your checking account. Mason explain the 10% where do they get that what is that all about? Why does God require people to give 10% of something the most high cares nothing about? This can become very confusing especially when a person is emotionally vulnerable.

Ah…I get it, it starts with them trying to convince us we aren’t worth a damn, this way they can make us feel guilty if we don’t want to share what little we have. And this don’t question God stuff. Yeah they use that lean not to your own understanding jazz a lot and I know because I was in turmoil when my sister abandoned me and I turned to the church for comfort and guidance. I came up short all the time and I gave a whole lot of money. I did feel somewhat cheated and I decided God wasn’t the way for me. I was left with the impression all God did was take and he gave nothing. I was reluctant to follow Jay to a Gnostic meeting but God I am so glad I did. I needed to be set on the right path because I was really a cold bitter man. I was unable to love and I had no idea how to correct myself. Nothing was working. Thank you Nephew for saving my life in so many ways and leading me to a place that put faith and prayer in a proper perspective for me.

Wow…blame the victim. Here we have it. All that crap about your faith is being tested when answers to prayers don’t come fast enough in time, or sometimes not at all. It’s our fault. We aren’t praying right. We aren’t forgiving someone or something thing. And this emphases on forgiveness. They need us to feel we have to forgive then for robbing us blind.
