Quote# 133583

Good Sunday. Please excuse me while I rant for a moment and get something off my chest that's been deeply troubling me:

I thought when I asked more of you for help that more of you would actually show up to help. It truly saddens me that only a few have made the effort. I haven't asked you for much: just enough to keep the Eden Decoded website from going offline. But you seem totally unconcerned.

You could've given $5, $3, $10 - SOMETHING. But to totally ignore my calls for help or pretend to be offended that I would dare ask you to give reveals an extremely selfish attitude on the part of those who only come here to get but never give when they have the chance to be a blessing to someone else.

For the past few years I've freely poured my heart and soul into this page, into my articles and into the many ebooks I've created: often paying to boost my posts out of my own pocket just to get past the FB filters that would've prohibited more of you from hearing my messages in the first place.

And though I charge for my ebooks - which I have every right to do - I always make room for you to get them at a bargain, even giving you the opportunity to pay whatever you wanted for those ebooks. Remember all those 'pay what you want' specials?

Now it's my hour of need: and you've gone silent on me! Whether you feel justified in doing so when I've ministered to your needs so freely over the months and years - I'll leave that between you and God to figure out. But the need is still there even after all of my asking and pleading.

They say you can always know where you really stand with people when you ask them for money. Money has a way of revealing hearts and motives: which is why Jesus equated love for it with love for God. Money is the only thing that challenges our hearts for God's affection.

I fear that too many of you love money too much: if that were not the case you would've given by now! There's no way I could've seen any of you asking for help as much as you've seen me asking these past few months, and ignored those pleas for this long without giving something.

Only a stony heart devoid of godly affection and filled with the cares of this life could do that.

Maybe more of you will give after reading this, and maybe not. Most of you will go on just being offended like you already are, until my next viral article comes out. Then you'll be right there gobbling that up to. Give or don't give: doesn't matter to me either way at this point. My fantasy is over as I see exactly how I need to proceed moving forward with this work God has entrusted to me. I feel like Paul:

"Then Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and declared, "It was necessary that we first preach the word of God to you Jews. But since you have rejected it and judged yourselves unworthy of eternal life, we will offer it to the Gentiles." Acts 13:46

And in another place he had a similar remark:

"But when they opposed and insulted him, Paul shook the dust from his clothes and said, "Your blood is upon your own heads--I am innocent. From now on I will go preach to the Gentiles." Acts 18:6

Just needed to get that off my chest. For those who still want to give something, see the comments below where I've given the instructions for how to do so. For the rest: God bless you anyway and I bid you well on your personal journey.

Bullshitter discovers his followers have been bullshitting him.

Please don't don't make me beg.

You weren't able to reason them into giving. What makes you think you can shame them into giving? You've just received a message, Mack: nobody thinks you're worth paying for.

You buy likes?

That's a violation of Facebook's terms of service. It's also dishonest.

Holy fuck... So, asking for money shows people's true colors.
I guess NOT GETTING the money you ask for turns into full spectrum analysis...

Now I'm even less inclined to give you money.

@pyro
He might be talking about the one Facebook officially sells.
Still though, why in bloody hell would anyone want to donate to you with that attitude of yours? You should read Wikipedia's. They have the sense to point out that not everyone has the means or the money to do so, and they don't take offense to that fact. The thing about donations, Mack, is that you do not get to force others to pay for it and that you shouldn't expect everyone to give you money, you egoistical twit.

You're nothing but an overpriced whore, Mack Major. Actually, compared to you, they earn an honest living.

I seriously considered sending you 20 dollars. But I decided to buy beer for the weekend. Sorry Mack, priorities.

Oh, welp, looks like his god did not provide...

There you have it folks, the seldom seen 'Biblical Flounce'. We'll just wait and see what the judges make of that.

Mack why not take it as a sign from God?

10/30/2017 2:46:57 AM

I considered making a contribution.
But then I realized the envelope and stamp cost more
than I was willing to give him.
Never mind.

So who wants to laugh? Looks like even the most devout can see through you Mack.

The tremendous silence you're hearing is the fact that nobody wants what you're selling. The fact that God hasn't provided you with a steady income is also significant, because evidently He doesn't approve of what you're doing. The world doesn't owe you a living. Your begging and shaming doesn't even have the legitimacy of those homeless standing at freeway exits holding cardboard signs.

Says other people are selfish and love money too much. Demands selfishly that people give him money.

How's that prosperity gospel working out for you, Mack? Or are you abandoning it now that you're failing? After all, if your finances are in trouble, that means the Lord isn't happy with you, right?

Thanks for this post. It warms my heart to hear that this con man is finally getting the treatment he deserves. I'd say his site's eventual collapse (again) is cause for celebration.

Why not ask "God" to help you continue your "noble" (NOT!) work? I'm sure he'll shower you with shekels of gold and silver.

I was going to give him a little something, but then I realized, throwing my quarter into the wishing well is more productive than sending it to Mack.

(Let's keep this meme going, to make a point: Memes make a better living than Mack the con.)

And how much have you donated to charity, Mack?

Why can't your 'God' create his own money, eh Peterbilt Minor...?!

...because once you come up with the only possible explanation, congratulations: you've discovered why your fundie welfare teat has dried up.

But keep giving what is our meat & milk to we on FSTDT: lulz.

The only way you can deny us of our nourishment: get a proper job.

The ultimate paradox: for you. There's plenty of other fundie cattle we can milk for our satirical sustenance if you were to take personal responsibility, however.

There's only one possible way FSTDT can starve to death: for all fundies to become left-wing, Atheist, pro-Choice, pro-Semitic, pro-LGBT, whatever's quoted here, we point & laugh at.

And even then we'd still get on with our lives: being productive members of society: as we are already.

FSTDT exists as a means of earning extra lulz-dollars.

How about you start earning your own?
