I believe this formula:

Money == H.O.B.D.C

C= Capability (IQ,EQ etc.)
H = hard word
D = Desire + Determination to make more money
O = Opportunity
B = Blessing from God.

I really want to have bigger house, better car, more money in bank, buy more insurance.... is that wrong desire? If follow this formula, I think, i can achieve more than what i have now.

And, i never forget ------ HEALTH.
So, i always take care of my body, to make sure it still can work in healthy way,
without health, money will be useless to me.

I have to agree with Zantra and franz.

"Saint", I find your "use" of Christianity revolting. Especially in light of your seeming obsession with sex and beautiful women. I also seem to recall a thread in which you posted a picture of your mistress (which you later deleted), and asked us if we thought she was pretty. The you proceeded to say something to the effect of "Shhhh. Don't tell my wife." You're a real poor excuse for a Christian, "Saint".
I, too, feel very sorry for your wife and children.
you mean this girl?

yes, i admitted i downloaded it from porn site,
because i think she is tempting and sexy,
but just for fun.

I am a virtual Saint, not true Saint.
just a mortal man. :smile:

It also indicates low self esteem. People need outer superficial extravagance to compensate for inner hollowness. I can see this in Saint's posts.

Well, no. That was NOT the picture. Although I'm sure the Christian minister of you church would be THRILLED to know one of his parishoners frequents a PORN site. You're the perverted type of indivudual that give Christians a real bad name, ya know that? You don't have a clue of what being a Christian is all about.

This reminds me of the Drake Equation. :biggrin:

Like going to a porn site, playing with myself, then looking down on those immoral women for having caused a hideous and involuntary erection in an otherwise holy man !
(to borrow a phrase from St. Augustine)

...there ought to be a law, hahaha :biggrin:

Saint,

What good are material things before and after life (infinite time), and more important than they during life (finite time)? Money can be beneficial, but only if utilized wisely.

My guess is that you have witnessed the shaming of devastating poverty, and react to that trauma with a failed attempt to impress others using wealth as your primary personal value. No one desires to suffer without purpose, but to avoid conflict by money neglects one's responsibility to empathize with those suffering and to help right the world ourselves.

I suggest you seek out the many stories of riches gone awry, and of the virtuous poor.
Agreed!

Quick story that might help:
I grew up pretty poor. I didn't get Christmas presents growing up for many years (never blamed my parents though) and it was hard because I wanted to enjoy it when other kids I knew had new crap. I started working a little too young (first paper route by age 7, had to have my parents sign off on it).

By the time I was a teenager I became enveloped with the idea of making lots of money. As fate would have it my family came into quite a lot of money from relatives who passed. I realized after a while that it could bring no happiness and I'd much rather have those relatives alive (of course, I never wanted them to die in the first place! that was just how the money came into play...)

Money never changed who we are as people and I like that. My parents still haven't taken a trip in 25+ years. They didn't go buy a mansion and yacht. I'm glad that I learned this early on in my life and didn't trudge through it becoming a business major like I had wanted to at the time. As sad as the deaths were it helped me grow in many more ways than I thought possible! :wink:

Christianity is all about not judging people and loving them unconditionally :wink:

Sure, but you're talking about wants, not needs.

why must we stop at what we NEED?
why can't we pursue what we WANT more than what we need?

When we measure length, we have a standard reference, e.g. ruler which is calibrated.
Now, when you judge my words, what Frame of Reference do you use?
Based on what standard you evaluate me?
Why do you think I am wrong?
Your set value is not absolute, not qualified to evalute mine and say that I am Shallow.

It is absolutely nothing wrong to desire for better materials in our life.
Nothing morally wrong to eat every meal in restaurant if you can afford it, the only concern is your helath.

Immorality = doing harm to oneself and others.

Based on this definition, Nothing wrong to pursue materials.

Saint,
Immorality = doing harm to oneself and others.
Based on this definition, Nothing wrong to pursue materials.
Unless you deny them to those with a legitimate need.

I take pity on poor people, but it is not my fault to cause them poor.
I am blameless for the inequity in the society,
my pursuing of better life with abundant materials does not harm anyone,
therefore, my concience is guiltless.

But that's not my only goal,
I want to help people and hope for no return-----------Honestly!

You need to just enjoy and appreciate what you have.

Love life.

Note: You do not love life. Yes, I do know.

Saint, judging by your posts, I've come to the conclusion that you're either worryingly weird or just trolling. What other reason would possibly make you want to share all the stuff you do with a bunch of people you don't know on an internet forum?

I checked in the web and found that the houses in UK are very lousily designed from outside. And most of them are only having 2 rooms 1 bath, but costly up to 100,000 pounds.

Those houses you show may be expensive, but from what I can tell they derive from cookie-cutter architecture, like those of the nouveau-riche where I live. I am sure you all have much better in the way of style and taste.

Saint, I'm sure you could find us nicer looking houses than that. Personally, I think those are ugly.
