I don't think PT likes being on the receiving end.
Liar. That didn't take long.
PT said: "I've followed Kerry since his Viet Nam days and have nothing for him. A lifetime gigolo..."
Either you do not know the definition of a gigolo... or you are a liar. Which is it???
Drum roll please... here comes the denial or excuse.
You would never admit it. Denial. True sign of a liar.
Nope. Just confronting a liar.
What is the point? You would just deny with more lies.
Plain Truth has posted many lies.
Plain Truth's name should not be mentioned in the same sentence as truth.
What is Greed?
Greed is inordinate love of material things and an unbalanced desire for more earthly possessions. A greedy person cherishes things more than he cherishes people or relationships.
“It’s never enough, I gotta have more” is the motto of the ugly sin called greed. Like its sister sin, gluttony, greed is a drive to consume for the sheer pleasure of consuming without regard to moderation.
Faces of Greed
Hoarding things for the sake of hoarding is a form of greed. So is buying things you don’t need just for the sake of possessing them. Greed is also the act of taking more than your fair share in order to hurt others: it says “I’m better than you because I have more; you can’t have it because I already have it.”
In short, greed is amassing material goods for the sheer pleasure of accumulating.
Why is Greed a Mortal Sin?
There are several reasons why greed is considered a deadly sin.
•Greed is a sign of mistrust. It is an expression of doubt that God will provide all that you need. It is disbelieving Jesus when He promises that God will provide everything you need (Luke 12:22-31).
•Greed promotes crime. More crimes have been committed due to greed than any other deadly sin. Greed drives people to steal, lie, and even kill in order to acquire more wealth and worldly possessions.
•Greed is the pinnacle of selfishness. Greed ruins marriages, destroys friendships, and divides families all in the selfish pursuit of gratifying one’s self. Greed is the opposite of charity, generosity and love. Greed disregards all others and puts falsely high importance on the self: it is a form of self-worship.
Overcoming Greed with Generosity
Greed can be overcome by practicing generosity and gratitude. Recognizing that only a finite number of things are needed in order to live, and to live well is a step toward overcoming greed.
Limiting the number of things you accumulate and being grateful and appreciative of what you have can put an end to greed; so can giving freely of both your time and possessions.
Maximus: You are a terrible example of a Christian and only fuel the arguments against organized religion. You are terrible example of a human being. St. Peter will likely have words for you, and they likely won't be kind.
