“The business of religion for some can be a very profitable profession to enter. Most people think of that sentence in the spiritual sense, but this article is about the physical worldly dollar.

.
It might be argued that the reason why ministers are more likely to make money today is because they utilize more money making opportunities such as writing books, producing movies and speaking engagements.
.
Some of which make enough to have private planes (Eddie Long)  refurbished arenas as churches (Joel Osteen) and flourishing press houses (Rick Warren).
.
There will be many who will say that these pastors shouldn’t be making this much money. Before you judge, keep in mind that the average yearly household salary in The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is $422, so they could be saying the same about you!

One of the most significant aspect of Easter is the availability of our own  complete forgiveness for all of our personal sins even demonstrating fully God’s personal love for each one of us. Too many of as still do suffer from a sense of guilt, void, low self worth and self esteem but we can be encouraged by the undeniable fact that God himself still loves us each one of us, in spite of anything that we have done, and God has already given his own Son as payment for any and all the wrongs we have done now as well.
 
Romans 5:8  But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. :9  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  :11  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. :12  Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
 
1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. :10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 2:1  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: :2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
 
John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, (Jesus) that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  17  For God sent not his Son (Jesus) into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him (Jesus) might be saved. 18  He that believeth on him i(Jesus) s not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 
 
(Mark 3:29 KJV)  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
 
While some may not want to accept this forgives many other persons  will.
 
(Acts 5:31 KJV)  Him (Jesus) hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
 
(Acts 13:38 KJV)  Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man (Jesus) is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
 
(Acts 26:18 KJV)  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
 
(Eph 1:7 KJV)  In whom we have redemption through his (Jesus) blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
 
(Col 1:14 KJV)  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
 
(Mat 9:2 KJV)  And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
 
(Mark 2:5 KJV)  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
 
(Luke 5:23 KJV)  Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
 
(Luke 6:37 KJV)  Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
 
(Luke 7:47 KJV)  Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
 
(Rom 4:7 KJV)  Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
 
(Eph 4:32 KJV)  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
 
(Col 2:13 KJV)  And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
 
(James 5:15 KJV)  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 
(1 John 2:12 KJV)  I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

One of the best loved, known parables of the New Testament given by Jesus Christ was that of the prodigal son , the same young man who deceived  had  left his own  home to do his own thing, and who next had experienced the negative realties of this world, and humbled he next returned broke home to his father, who next even  forgave him resorted him, accepted him back
  
Luke 15:11  And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12  And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that fallsto me. And he divided unto them his living. 13  And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. 14  And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. 15  And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16  And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. 17  And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18  I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, 19  And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20  And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21  And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22  But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: :23  And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24  For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. 25  Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26  And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. 27  And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. 28  And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him. 29  And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: 30  But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. 31  And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 32  It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
 
Now the same Biblical story  even generally refers to us all.. for we all do often tend to get lost, we all have left our heavenly homes, and next  do not find true satisfaction, real joy hereo n earth.. for  after all we are here on earth but mere sojourners in a very foreign land, as this earth realy is not our actual home, our solid place of refuge, our present settlement but rather as always heaven is our home.
 
Heb 13:14  For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
 
Now yes God leads us all to experience the negative realities of hell, earth.. In The Furnace Of Affliction “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah 48:10 
 
God does this to bring us back to Him… so next  we can also as per (Mark 5:19 KJV)   Go home to our friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for us , and how he  had compassion on us.
 
Still we do still too often like sheep easily get lost, go astray, and thus become realy depressed.. do sense a big void again in our life…
 
So one of the best ways that I have found to fill this same void, and to sense again the reality of God’s presence is to recite often Bible verses, especially  to recite God’ s promises to each one of us, promises such as-
 
Psalm 23:1  A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2  He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters. 3  He restores  my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5  You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: you anoint  my head with oil; my cup runs over. :6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
 
and many others..
 
(Isa 54:17 KJV)  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
 
(Psalm 4:8 KJV)  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makes me dwell in safety.
 
(Psalm 55:18 KJV)  He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

(2 Cor 10:5 KJV)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
 
One of the sad aspects of life is that too many persons do too often not only give in to holding wrongs thoughts, they next do even become slaves, prisoners of them too… for sadly firstly they cannot even distinguish between good thoughts and vain thoughts, between good and evil..

(Psalm 119:141 KJV)  I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
 
 
(Psalm 118:8 KJV)  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
 
(Psalm 118:9 KJV)  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

I do seem have this habit where I do ASSAY  or  test people to see if they do practice what they preach to me.. their mere words mean nothing to me..  especially those people who claim that God has called them to do a specific work..  but yet they now cannot seem to find any love personally for me and why was  that ?  Did Jesus not say that now by  their own fruits you can tell what they are.. and  the fruit of the spirit includes  their love for me..

(John 15:4 KJV)  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
 
(Gal 5:22 KJV)  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
 
(Eph 5:9 KJV)  (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
 
(James 3:18 KJV)  And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
 

I have thus notice that when one of these rather control freaks pastor, or relatives does tells me that he is busy serving God, also that he or she is more spiritual than I am too,  so  that when he or she asks me to do something for him and her and I next do refuse to do so i do rather see as to how very quickly they do now do openly hate me, do bad mouth me, do slander me, do divorce me.. for obviously n ow rather their calling, goals are not being motivated by God but rather by the devil and self.. and so I do  wish they could see what they were realy like ..

I was amazed that so many people next tend to make this one also one of my more popular posts.

A Common  Loser’s Strategy is asking to  Look at me! Notice me. See who I am! Pay attention to me.   I am great!  I AM THE GREATEST! Worship me, Praise me. Losers worship the false god of self.
.
A Common  Loser’s Strategy is also to Seek Revenge.
.
Too often in life I have met too many a proud, perverse, dictatorial manager, administrators, actually slave drivers,  who gets often  upset. do pout that others that do not cower in fear, do not submit in absolute reverence under their feet. They now have set themselves up for severe  disappointment or heartache or failure in their lives. Years later I met some of these same people unemployed, even destitute and broke.. Many of us want to succeed but at what costs, at the false costs of others? For too many persons Power is intoxicating? Some bad persons they now  get a little power and they falsely do think  can be abusive with it.  they  get a little control and thy also get greatly manipulate. they tend to want all things done  their way and they try to manipulate and maneuver others, to get these people to do the things they  want done, for  they are   a bully, just like Haman who used his power falsely to bully the people around him. Dream on they are heading for a rude awakening. Their Bitterness is a wasted life.
.
She was merely another typical, common big liar,  selfish, self-absorbed, self-centered and fascinated with her  own ego, and its false agenda, she still was a people manipulator, a control freak, lazy, unrealistic,  an extremist, with her  lies, distorted, false values, who had tried to live her dreams on others. She was impatient, unkind, ruthless, uncaring, immoral  and she still next could not understand why she was so despised, unwanted, unloved too by all others and why she had a low self esteem.  She lost it all, her home, her possessions now too. She had once expected her family, her loved ones, her own special ones to fully look after her, but even they did not want her anymore. She now had ended her life living all alone, in loneliness, with no visitors, friends, to visit her. She has now finally reaped what she had sowed. She had failed to listen to anyone who had warned her that this was what would happen to her next too. Believe me or just now go to the old age homes, see thousands of persons there sitting day and night in a prison chair by the elevator doors with now no one coming to visit them, no one wanting to see them.. and they also now used to think it all  happens only to some one else..  it never would happen to them.. they now reaped a bad whirlwind too.
.
(Rev 18:7 KJV)  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

FACE IT MOST PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS REAP WHAT THEY SOW INCLUDING DEMONIC DEPRESSIONS

 Reality- Severe Mid Life crisis, depression IS COMMON TO PEOPLE WHO REAP BAD THINGS CAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN SELF CENTERED, SPOILED, UNKIND..

.

This DEPRESSION syndrome is a familiar one. BOTH MEN AND WOMEN AFTER a certain age — and it is not almost always men — do wake up one day and do realize  that they still are no longer the center of the universe and they had not achieved all  MOSTLY FALSE GOALS THAT THEY HAD WANTED . AND FOR THEM IT IS DEPRESSING and they do often go craZy as a direct result too..  THEIR MID LIFE CRISIS. Blaming your spouse for it is a waste of time here too.

.

Others  now fail to look their way, co-workers don’t scurry to fetch them coffee and bosses stop thinking of them a long time ago as someone on the rise. Mommy’s spoiled child rather. Overly self serving, self centered, overly Ambitious. So they consider the alternatives, such as recalibrations, adjustments, or a career changes, clothing style changes,  and/or using their jobs resources even  to attain their still rather unattainable goals, or by developing a new strategy.. but mostly none of it tends to work, it merely continues their self defined fiascos, for their PERSONAL DESIRES,  goals were unrealistic to start of with. So they continue a life of vanity, hubris, malice, even violence, anger, envy, jealousy, rage as well too often, plus their still false  arrogance and conceit .  They next  still hold on to  their false notions. They have their own developed, defined strategies. And to anyone who disagrees, it’s dam-you, for you’re nothing, you’re a nobody, you’re pathetic LOSER. If we do now open our eyes we all can see it in world wide, ,over and over, everywhere too.

.

Losers making it all worse for themselves because they naively refuse to live with the reality of who they basically are still too.

.

In our present modern day world of constant struggle to sustain ourselves economically, it is easy to let stress become predominant, and this in turn, will lead to self centeredness and compromising our own personal moral values firstly. Furthermore deliberate ignorance, stupidity, emotional blackmails. and a false  dogmatism have wrecked havoc on many a human life as well.

.

All greatness and all examples of real heroes in life now still  arise from those persons who have held themselves up to a higher standard, ideal then the Kingdom of Self.

,

Unless one is healed, from the consequences of one’s on sins, unacceptable acts and goals a person is heading toward often sufferings, ill health and depressing moods. Dysfunctional and addictive behavior, bitter losses, and personal crises next escalate  from not doing enough  to fix things in our lives that have broken  down. They next tend to  succumb before the smallest of obstacles.

.

Maybe I knew him too well but what still surprised me was that my father too  was one of the more extrme, unique persons, and he was most self centered. selfish, smug person that I knew, and also he never bothered to try to change himself for the better, he was happy the way he was, doing his own thing. He solely, always saw everyone else’s faults too but never his own even because he was too lazy to try to make posive changes in his own life.  Sadly many of his too many bad friends were like him now as well.  Still effectively helping to change any others can only come from ones own good personal example, original experience. Ironically my dad he thought he also was a good person who deserved next to go to heaven, something I completely disagreed with.

.

The unhealed past can and will cripple you. All of us have been wounded by our interactions with the world, and as these psychic scars accumulate inside our emotional bodies, the more disturbed we become. Over time, they only get worse. Unless effort is made to heal the experiences of hurt, disappointment, rejection, and humiliation from the past, then these persons will continue to have a debilitating effect in our lives. It takes real personal effort to make positive changes in our own life as well. ” Rare is the person who takes time to journal, to walk in nature, or to discuss with others at a deep level what can be done to improve the quality of one own and those of others around them.”

.

 “Books and teachers may point the way, but ultimately, they do not light the path to deep understanding, and only make a false impression of learning. True spirituality consists of acts of kindness, moments of wisdom, and feelings of high inspiration. When we learn and absorb the lessons of our own life, enjoy genuine warmth in relationship to other people and experience wonder when contemplating the great scheme of all life, then we may awaken to spiritual understanding. Institutions, no matter how venerable, cannot make you spiritual.” 

  .

 In your efforts to improve your life by healing these symptoms of failure, do not look around you for much reinforcement, because most people are in deep denial of their own inadequacies.  http://success.articleberry.com/7-root-causes-of-bitter-failure

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as a green herb. Psalm 37:1-2

.

(Est 3:5 KJV)  And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.
 
(Est 7:10 KJV)  So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. 
 
(Est 8:1 KJV)  On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews’ enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her.

Everyone should know by now that self worth, self esteem is a direct product of how you see yourself, or how others see you, do treat you but it is also related  directly to what you do.. which can lead to One’s depression.
.

Now do nothing at all or do mostly bad things and you will feel guilty, you will have a low self worth.
Let someone one oppress, abuse you and it can drive you next in reality  to personal insanity now as well..Recognition of the problem is a major part of the solution here.. In older adults, symptoms of depression may also include signs of dementia like memory problems and confusion, feelings of extreme irritability or anxiety, pacing and fidgeting. Depression can show itself in headaches, back or muscle aches, racing heart rates, stomach or other gastrointestinal upsets, which can be alleviated if the physical symptoms are prevented or managed with treatment. Other health conditions including heart attack, stroke, hip fractures, and macular degeneration are known to be associated with development of depression. Older women are at a greater risk for depression, and women in general are twice as likely as men to become seriously depressed. Depression is not a normal part of aging, it tends to be a consequential apsect of one’s life. Depression often is an untreated sickness.   Undiagnosed and untreated depression often has serious negative personal consequencesFirst find out if you are personally responsible for your depression and next start doing good things instead like eating properly, stop consuming drugs, alcohol and cigarettes too, try  getting enough sleep, and managing properly your purchases, expenditures, etc. During the winter season, it’s normal to get the “blues” and to feel as if the weight of the world is closing in all around. Part of the “blues” stem from a lack of routine or exercise, little or not enough light, and less interaction with others.  Most people still do possess the ability to bounce back from the blues and start new with a fresh burst of energy.  80 percent of older adults recover from depression after receiving appropriate treatment, actions.or next  find out  if someone really is responsible for it.. and when you do know who that someone is do call the police, do loudly object, oppose all human rights abuses, do now expose that criminal to all.. stop the abuse. Shout the sin from the Housetop.
.
 
One of the real sad fact of real life is those minority group of perverted persons, the people abusers who see others as an object to be used to advance themselves, to make money from or to profit from, and once they see that you are of no use to them they immediately do dump you, do not use you anymore,  and that includes not just many of the business persons, realtors, landlords, news reporters, editors, salesmen, consultants, professionals, neighbours, acquaintances  cops, civil and public servants, pastors, politicians, doctors and  medical staff now as well.. I usually do refer to them as prostitutes, gigalos,  pimps  or slave drivers. So when these same people next often get depressed, do face major negative setbacks.. my heart now basically does not bleed for them..

Anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals work in different ways by providing nutrients which control the metabolism rate and the hormone levels within our bodies. By keeping these two things stable we can provide a better mechanism to cope with stress and anxiety inducing situations. Most of the recommended anxiety stress relief vitamins and minerals can be found in the foods that we eat and can simply be attained by eating a healthy and balanced diet covering all the major food groups. And that is why eating proper foods is important. The Elderly persons need more special care cause they do tend to lack  the basic vitamins found in our common foods that help also to reduce one’s personal stress and anxiety.. for a hungry persons tends to be continually stressed and anxious and also do often   manifest  depression as well.. and what the classic treatment for depression is time, healing, by giving them proper nourishment, and proper rest and sleep.. in this case supplemented by proper pain killers, not improper pain killers  and/or merely  given proper sleeping pills too. 

.

Here is how I do try to help many people. You firstly still cannot help anyone who refuses to admit they want help and is unwilling to receive help firstly. So I patiently wait for them to ask for help. SOME PERSONS SADLY DO  NEED TO GO THROUGH SOME UNBELIEVABLE HARDSHIPS TOO BEFORE THEY ASK FOR HELP. Next in love I let them talk, I listen, and I clearly agree with their truths, and I also do in love clearly point out the errors of the past, present ways. I look for the root cause of  their problems, not merely observing their outward symptoms.
.

(Prov 22:1 KJV)  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

(Eccl 7:1 KJV)  A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.

.

Here is another thing I see often, bad people trying to falsely justify holding on to their lies, false values, no good approach to life and their bad friends.. next these very same bad friends do turn upon them, hurt them and the abused now next sing a very different tune about them.. I get so upset with the sad selfish, self centered ostriches, and bad sheep who try to be politically correct, say to me and you that we are helpless to try to change the facts, nothing will change the facts of life, it is all a waste of time, so stop rocking the boat.. but now next these very very same perverts and when they get abused they loudly do scream murder, do demand I do everything to help them , to make their abuse known and corrected.. what a change when it concerns them and not the others. So one can say anything they want and even believe it.. but when one actually has to face death.. Reality when it comes to dying and facing the Maker, knowing that next you will reap what you sow, i see firsthand many many people begging to stay alive at all costs..

.

Face it the single biggest cause of depression basically is your own doings and not just a bad marriage.. But don’t expect any marriage to make you happier over having a personal relationship with God still or the new or old marriage to be a false substitute for having a personal relationship with God. I have been recently counseling a person who desperately wants to be remarried, she has been twice married, but she is not interesting in following after God only after her own desires, lusts.. so no marriage for her will make her happy or replace God’s vacuum in her life still too. God has not promised you now even a right of remarriage.. but he promised you peace, joy and happiness and yes you can have that outside of marriage with Jesus..

.

Eccl 7:13 KJV)  Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? 14  In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him. 15  All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness. 16  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself? 17  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? 18  It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
