I really don't know the answer to this one

So we have an ongoing matter where Person A sold a company to Person B, and just before completion date, Person A withdrew most of the company's money for her own use, much to Person B's dismay and horror. There is now litigation to sort things out.

That's all fairly straightforward, then Person A sends an email to Person B directly (so far, all correspondences have been through the lawyers) to notify Person B that "I am praying for you", and that "God will right all wrongs." Also something about the money she took having been converted to God's use (to build God's kingdom).

Person B, who is of the view that he should have the same recourse to the Lord God as Person A (and maybe more recourse to the same than Person A) sends me an enraged email where he asks how is he going to respond to this.

I've looked up some Bible verses (Google) and I have to say that there is little reference that I can find at short notice to offences involving a criminal breach of trust and the position that God would take in such cases, particularly where He is also implicated.

Perhaps it's just me, but I think there's something truly objectionable when you confront someone who swiped money from you and they say "I passed it to God, perhaps you should ask Him for it".

This is really hilarious! I really don't know to laugh at how absurb A is, or to cry with B for having to deal with such a question..I guess truly only 'God knows BEST'...

I think 'Joshua 6' pretty much sums up the vengeance by death targets for this and similar situations: “all the living creatures of the city [trustfund, board, committee, family delete as appropriate]: men and women, young, and old, as well as oxen sheep, and asses”.

That's STUPID asses, by the way.

Numbers 5:
"5 The LORD said to Moses, 6 "Say to the Israelites: 'When a man or woman wrongs another in any way [b] and so is unfaithful to the LORD, that person is guilty 7 and must confess the sin he has committed. He must make full restitution for his wrong, ADD ONE FIFTH to it and give it all to the person he has wronged."

Exodus 22:
"9 In all cases of illegal possession of an ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any other lost property about which somebody says, 'This is mine,' both parties are to bring their cases before the judges. The one whom the judges declare guilty must pay back DOUBLE to his neighbor."

Exodus 22:
"6 "If a fire breaks out and spreads into thornbushes so that it burns shocks of grain or standing grain or the whole field, the one who started the fire must make restitution.

7 "If a man gives his neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor's house, the thief, if he is caught, must PAY BACK DOUBLE. 8 But if the thief is not found, the owner of the house must appear before the judges to determine whether he has laid his hands on the other man's property."




Mark 7:
"9And he said to them: "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! 10For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother,'[d] and, 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.' 11 But you say that if a man says to his father or mother: 'Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is Corban' (that is, a gift devoted to God), 12then you no longer let him do anything for his father or mother. 13Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that." "

Matthew 15:
"3 Jesus replied, "And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4For God said, 'Honor your father and mother' and 'Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.'[b] 5But you say that if a man says to his father or mother, 'Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,' 6he is not to 'honor his father[c]' with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. "

=> A 'GIFT TO GOD' cannot be used to exonerate taking what is not yours or not giving the money to whom it is due.

YY.

These watches are designed to be loud and attractive.

For illustrative purposes, imagine you are faced with an important
legal matter, and it is up to you to choose the best lawyer, choose right and walk away free, choose wrong and you may pay a hefty fine,
or worse. The band is made up of a white gel strap with a
stainless steel buckle clasp.

Cuisinart CSB-76BC is actually nice by having an easy push
button which makes this product user friendly in terms
of using and cleaning. There is a myriad of pre-prepared baby food
on the market, but the key problem with this is that you are never really sure what
has gone into it, and there are lots of studies to prove that the salt and sugar
submissions are far higher than really recommended for such a young child.

Ensuring a firm grip is of necessity for virtually any
user, every hand blender under this brand has a silicone handle (referred to as a Sure - Grip handle).
