It is such a pleasure for the writer to conceptually terminate the false God of money, dosh, wonga, lolly, bread, mamon using the scriptures. And it is so beautiful, to him, to be able to see through it to the true heavenly currency, which earthly money, the unrighteous riches, are merely a corrupt counterfeit of. Let us be clear about this. Every single financial currency on earth is a valueless forgery of the true currency in heaven. Here are the scriptures which prove it...
20 And he said to them: Whose image and inscription is
21 They said: Caesar's. Then he said to them: Pay back, therefore, Caesar's things to Caesar, but God's things to God (Matthew 22).
So God has things similar to Caesar's things. In this case Caesar's thing was a Denarius, the day's wage of a Roman soldier. So God has a heavenly equivalent of a Denarius, a heavenly currency. (As an aside, in the word symbolic meaning, God's image and his inscription are on his children who are born again - these should not be given to Caesar, but to God).
19 Stop storing up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where
moth and rust consume, and where thieves break in and steal.
20 Rather, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6).
So you can store up heavenly currency in a bank that doesn't rip you off (there's a new experience).
9 Also, I say to you, Make friends for yourselves by means of the
unrighteous riches, so that, when such fail, they may receive you into the everlasting dwelling
10 The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much.
11 Therefore, if you have not proved yourselves faithful in connection with the unrighteous riches, who will entrust you with what is true?
12 And if you have not proved yourselves faithful in connection with what is another's, who will give you what is for yourselves?
13 No house servant can be a slave to two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves to God and to riches (Luke 16).
Now if the earthly riches are unrighteous, then 'what is true' are the heavenly riches. So the unrighteous riches are not true and therefore are false. So true riches must be righteous. So the heavenly riches are simply righteous acts. So if you act righteously then you build up heavenly riches, if you act sinfully then you lose heavenly riches in your heavenly bank account, with the Bank of Jehovah, an organisation which will never require a bailout.
7 For Jehovah is righteous. He does love righteous acts. The upright are the ones that will behold his face (Psalm 11).
No bank manager wants to see you when you haven't got any money. But if you are rich, well, would this afternoon be convenient, sir?
The heavenly currency is righteous acts of humans (positive money) and unrighteous acts of humans (negative money)
Love is the futures contract to buy righteousness, it is going long on righteousness
Hate is the futures contract to sell righteousness (or buy unrighteousness), it is going short on righteousness.
Baptism and faith are call options on love or put options on hate
Unbelievers are taking put options on love or call options on hate
So God is trying to teach us righteousness or lawfulness and Satan is trying to bribe us with the false currency of money, to behave unrighteously or lawlessly and therefore go bankrupt in the true currency, the real currency of righteousness. That is really the whole game of Satan. That is the heavenly power game going on every day.
The power of the angels increases as our righteous acts increase, and the power of the demons increases as our unrighteous acts increase. If Satan can persuade us to sin, then he gets more heavenly money and he gets more power over us. If Jehovah can persuade us through Jesus, to act righteously, then he gets more money and gets more power over us. This is why Satan is always fermenting fights and wars and political divisions. One of the most beautiful things in American politics is when the republicans vote with the democrats rather than against them and vice versa. One republican summed it all up by saying, yes I am a republican, but first and foremost I am an American. Well the writer is neither and he is prohibited by the Christian Constitution from exercising political power himself (although he can express his opinion as can anyone else). But if all Republicans and all Democrats were American's first and if all Lutherans Baptists, Born Agains, Charismatics, Catholics, Mormons, Pentecostals, JWs and LWs were Christians first, then we would all have conquered Satan and stopped his predictable power game. Why is it that every single democracy has two fairly evenly balanced parties fighting each other?
True the arms manufacturers make a lot of unrighteous riches from wars. But Satan makes more heavenly currency from wars (by encouraging unrighteous acts during them) even than the arms manufacturers make in earthly terms. Every human war is a run on the Bank of Jehovah orchestrated by Satan. Although God is not a pacifist, certain wars are justified in his justice (the allied response to WWII was justified by the treaty of Versailles - although the treaty itself was unjustified being an extortionate bargain).
Satan bribes companies to destroy the planet by giving them more profit if they do. He bribes individual drug dealers to destroy people's lives by giving them more profit if they do. He bribes every person and every organisation with the fake earthly currency of money to commit all sorts of unrighteous acts which lose them their true heavenly currency, which gives him more heavenly power over them, which is the power that counts.
The War on Terror, is a big mistake, being a war that was lost the day it was declared. It exists to make heavenly currency, the real currency, for Satan. His clever ruse is to bribe us with a counterfeit currency down here, to act unrighteously, which gives him more of the real stuff upstairs. It is a masterful deception.
Let's bust through this deception and really expose the 'War on Terror', so that we can show the reader how to bankrupt Satan. The terrorist abuses innocent non combatants in order gain a political advantage through media coverage of his crime against humanity.
The terrorist is a bully, he is trying to change the world by provoking a response which is leveraged by fear whipped up by the massive power of the media. The way to fight him is not to be outwardly provoked, to deny him what he wants. In this regard, the writer seriously recommends that all readers watch the comedy film: Carry on up the Khyber. This film in a comic way shows the perfect response to terrorism he would suggest.
On the third anniversary of 911, the Independent Newspaper in the UK carried the headline: We should not have allowed 19 murderers to change our world! (2004September11). They were right. The way to defeat any abuser is not to react to his abuse. We all learn this in the schoolyard. Sure we attack him back as well if we can, but we do not show him any fear or reaction to the abuse. He looks for and provokes and lives on that fear and that reaction. He wants to control us through our fear.
The correct response to terrorism is as follows, the writer would suggest, and the writer gives this not so much from a geopolitical standpoint, but to frustrate Satan and hand some advantage back to us poor humans whom he continually misleads...
 Never show your provocation, however bad the terrorism is. Do not let the terrorist determine how you live. We are democracies not terroristocracies. Do not drop any civil rights at all. Hold tight to our freedoms our justice our human rights and our civilisation. The terrorist is not trying to kill people for the sake of killing people, he is trying to kill people for the sake of destroying our society. But he cannot destroy our society, he can only worry us into destroying it ourselves. So don't do anything. Do not change one single law. Give him absolutely no outward reaction and absolutely no control over your life through your fear. Do not be terrorized. We can all die of Global warming tomorrow anyway! Why worry about terrorists who so far, world wide, have not managed to kill even 5,000 people, when AIDS has killed 45 million? We would be declaring war against unprotected sex, if we were a logical species!!
 Defeat terrorism using intelligence assets from those whose hearts and minds you have won through your restraint over the obvious injustice. The terrorist loses hearts and minds each time he strikes. Use this loss against him.
 Limit media coverage of terrorism. Do we freeze their funds, remove their weapons, chase them all over the world, declare war on them and then give them massive amounts of prime time TV, more even than Presidential Candidates? Freedom of the press and free speech require that terrorist acts are fully reported, yes, but let them only be reported in writing, in print, ban them from the TV and the radio. Then only those who wish to read about them will hear about them. All the information must be available, yes, but do we need it rammed down our throats? Do we need it rammed down our children's throats? We should have the right to choose whether or not we are terrorized. Reading requires effort and carries an implied right to choose with it. Ensure that the public have to go and find such news if they want it. Put it on the top shelf.
 Most important of all, make genuine and sincere attempts to remove the injustice or perceived injustice that lies at the root of the terrorist response. For terrorism is the symptom, but injustice is the disease.
If you fight the symptoms, the terrorists, and ignore the disease, the injustice, then you are putting a sticking plaster on a cancer tumour. You will never cure that cancer.
In summary do not let the terrorist change your way of life. If you do he wins. And declaring war is the largest possible change to its way of life that a society can make. So the war on terror declared by Bush43 was the worst possible reaction to 911. A better reaction might have been to investigate who set up the controlled demolition.
