Are YOU Rich? wanna find out? Wana see some porn?

I was never rich enough to own this!
I am blessed because iron men sailed on wooden ships to bring us this wonderful life.

We have traveled to many countries. I only had to visit a few before I learned Americans were considered Rich and are rich!

You know it is amazing what things are on this internet. You can learn about any religion. You can learn to make a bomb. Finding hate is easy. Viewing Porn is easy. Of COURSE I know you don’t do it, but if you go to any Porn site you cannot open it unless you are 18 or over. Hey, they take your word for it, the question is:
Are you 18 years of age. Yes___ No___.

So your eight or ten year old grand kid answers Yes, and they are in; viewing any and every thing.(Proving parental controls are important) And YES, if you have not done it you should, for your own information. Just search Porn.

Naturally I know this only because somebody told me???? Come on now! Try to believe it anyway. You want a cure for cancer? I found a site in Canada will give you a money back guarantee that they can cure ANY cancer. If it doesn’t work they will return your money. Make sense?

Anyway back to RICH. I am going to list a site (NO IT IS NOT PORN). It is a good site from Poke, based in LOndon. I am not asking you to buy fruit trees for poor people or send any money. I just want you to find out how rich you are, as an American, Canadian or Englishman. This site compares your yearly income to that of the entire known world and instantly gives you a ranking with the rest of the world. (My friend Fred could tell you much more). Hey, I knew I was rich before I went.

You are compared with everyone in the USA, CAN, & UK, but also Haiti, Africa, China and South America, everyone (6 Billion).

We have traveled a lot and as a military guy I have given every extra cent I had, to kids on the docks begging for money. After awhile you learn you cannot give enough, you cannot solve their problems. We have taken one cruise. I went to be at sea and eat. I enjoy the salt air and the feeling of freedom the sea gives you. I don’t plan to go ashore anymore in a poor country. I feel so sorry for them, it ruins a vacation, and it does not solve their problem in the least. WE give and send what we can, when we can.
Go across the border into Mexico, and you will know why they want to be in the USA. I don’t blame them for trying, but it must be stopped. We cannot help Mexico by ruining our economy.
Again a soap box, sorry, Thanks for coming.

Eat those turnips, they'll make you big and strong like your daddy.

That dog is NOT coming in this house! I don't care how cold it is out there, dogs don't stay in the house.

Sit still! I'm trying to get your hair cut straight and you keep moving and it is all messed up.

We have people right here in Appalachian
mountains that need help. There are people right here in my town that could use help. I
agree all the help you give them will not change
their way of living. I will help when I can for
people that I know.

You be careful exploring the internet don't
want it to corrupt your mind. What is our world
coming too...........

No porn site thank you very much. When we first went online on AOL I made the mistake of going in a senior chat room under my main screen name. I like to gave never quit getting emails from porn sites. Guess they thought old folks would like that LOL.
Our country is richer than most other countries even though the regular people have a hard time making it here. I am afraid that wealth has about come to an end. Helen

Jack, it's like Jesus said, "The poor you have with you always." We cannot cure poverty. In fact we cannot make much of a dent in it. Do you know how the "Hardshell" Baptists got their name? Just google "Hardshell Baptists" and read. Very interesting in light of some of the good comments here.

Poverty is not why I went out as a missionary. Some do go into missions motivated by that but I went because men need salvation. They do not have the same opportunities for salvation that we have. The soul is far more needy than the body. There is not a church in every village in foreign countries. There is not Christian radio and TV in every area like we have. They cannot hear the message of salvation without a preacher, and you know the rest of the story.

Of course when you see the extreme poverty and know how God has blessed you - you cannot help but be moved with compassion for their needs. I see it here and am moved to "help" the needy around me in these mountains of Appalachia. But my highest motivation is still the salvation of their souls because I am convinced that a person cannot be saved outside of Jesus!
