It most assuredly is a most corrupting world now where human behavior has sunken into an abysmal materialistic mind-set full of self-aggrandizement, decadence with a true lack of humanity or veneration of life itself; but instead denigrating it to the point of being a culture of death!
This passage says so much what the heart of the problem is in my eyes; “Never allow the parading of wealth and fame to seduce you, children, for know that money, and too much of it, corrupts the soul. Those who have so much money, where they are unlikely to be ever able to spend it in this life, must give it to those unfortunate people who have little to eat. Do this and you can save your soul. If you hunger after excesses, when you already have enough to feed and clothe a nation, then you will starve. The Food of Life is your humble acceptance, that love for one another is what I taught you. loving your neighbor means looking after those who have nothing.”
I’ve witnessed not just apart from my own personal experiences but my own where a person can fall into great misfortune by no fault of their own perhaps being injured severely in the workplace suffering for even many years with a shattered life and NOBODY cares! Neighborly love is non-existent and people’s hearts are cold or apparently almost inhumane when it comes to what the Holy Scriptures tell us is of paramount importance.
Love Your Neighbor As Yourself is the second great commandment of Jesus. It immediately follows His commandment of loving God with all your heart, mind and soul. Following this commandment is the key Jesus Christ gave us for loving others as God loves us. “No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.” (1 Corinthians 10:24)
“Love your neighbor as yourself” is the golden rule. It is the summary of the entire law (Galatians 5:14). And it is the second greatest commandment within the entire Bible (Matthew 22:37-40).
This tells us from the book of Luke. And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”
27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” (Luke 10:25-42)
We take what we want rather than give what we have.
God loves not because it’s his job but because love is his very nature and character.
(12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.)
God bless you.

Prayer Theme: Protection during the Warning and against the Antichrist
Bible: Acts 5: 1-11
Book of Truth: (Vol. 4) 1 August, 2013; & 21 August, 2011
Comment: The Bible reading tells us how God is swift to act against His enemies. Nothing is hidden. It tells us that we are either all for God, or we are against Him. Even in the early Church there was wickedness. He will protect His true followers. Our Almighty God is all-just, and all-seeing. Nothing escapes his judgement. We dare not test the “Spirit of the Lord’!
In the first reading from the Book of Truth, we are told of the wickedness which covers the whole earth today. Jesus mentions “blasphemous laws”and trying to “dismiss” His Divinity. (Well, we know that all this has already happened.)
The theme of wickedness is continued in the second reading from the Book of Truth…
