The non-Christian world thinks bullion and bullion ownership is great! From the Body of Christ, I have personally experienced enormous resistance to bullion. How can that be when gold is mentioned over 400 times in the Bible and silver over 300 times? With well over 700 mentions in the Bible, surely that in itself indicates there needs to be some investigation into this particular and obviously very important Bible topic.

This study is to help expose some of the misinformation and lies about money/assets and to assist those that wish to do more for their families and for others. It is my gift to you. Please read it with an open mind, looking at what the Scriptures actually do say - and then you form your own opinions.
With the current economic collapse occurring in the Western world in particular, more so than ever must Christian people grasp a thorough understanding of Divine Economic Policy and Procedure.

In Australia, Someone Attempts Suicide Every 7-8 Minutes. By the time you have read this, someone will have tried! What if they succeed.....??
I was staggered when I learned that statistic - I did a bunch of research and FAR OUT! - it's pretty accurate. Actually, some particular regions in Australia have a higher rate than that. In fact some 700,000 teenagers TODAY will think about ending their own life and entertain some thoughts about that... TODAY!
What are we doing to reach out to those at risk of taking their own life? How are we as a family, as a Church, as a community, as a city responding to that. How are we reaching out to those on a downward spiral? Frankly - tragically - do we even CARE?
This is epidemic proportions. Suicide is the LEADING cause of death for those Australians aged 15-44. There is roughly around 200 (maybe a bit more) suicide attempts per day.
What have we done, as a society, to create this kind of torment - "that people are SO convinced that their own tomorrow is going to be so much worse than their today, that they simply can't comprehend being in that tomorrow, so they want out"? Are we that focused in our 'first world lives' that we have forgotten to just "care", to "be nice", to "be polite", to "laugh" - to actually consider someone else before we charge on through with our own opinions, rant and biases.
I heard a statement yesterday - "I have an iPhone, an iPad, an iPod and an iMac - now all I have to do is get a life". Whilst technology brings us some wonderful benefits there is definitely a very dark side to it. Bust out of texting and actually put your arms around someone and HUG them....hug them in a way that squeezes, that tells them you care, you believe in them and you are their for them. Why...? They may be one of the 200+ that try - it may not be tomorrow but it may be next week, or next month. Make a connection - let people know you ARE THERE and CARE.
So, what's the bottom line in all of this: We all have to do more. I've created Directions For Care with my teenage daughter to make a difference. DFC ROCKS!!! Come on board - have a look at directionsforcare.org and hook up with us - let's BE the difference, not just mouth off about it. Remember James Chapter 2, verse 18 - "I'll show you my faith BY my works". I personally believe the Church should be outright leaders in this war on suicide - it's pretty simple - how can we tell someone about God if they are already dead. Not rocket science is it....
Please - be the difference. Find a teenager to be good to - because you can!!!
Please remember - Our focus is your success...
