Introduction and the Apolstles System
Apostles did things God's way and everyone was well off. They all worked hard for
God's purposes. Those with money and possessions distributed their wealth
to provide for those in need. They did not compete against each
other but served each other. They did not have to work
with unbelievers or a corrupt system but worked together for God.
This is a wonderful fair system, which the church sadly does not
practice today. If the church did this, there would be less
problems and the church could have a relationship with God as the Apostles did.
"Acts 4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were
possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things
that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the Apostles' feet: and distribution
was made unto every man according as he had need."
The Problem of Competition
say that we need serious competition to have fun, keep prices down have
a large variety of goods and services. However, this is not true. In fact the
opposite is happening, where there is predatory pricing. Powerful corrupt people and companies are
competing against, taking advantage of and destroying people and
businesses that are less well off. With the fair businesses gone, the
monopolies raise prices, and their products are often of poor quality so that
they need replacing. This means more profit for the multinationals at the
honest persons expense. Destroying poor, honest innovators and small businesses
means that good products and services are suppressed. This is resulting in a smaller
variety of goods and services, and making these more expensive.
encourages many outlets to sell the same things, which causes confusion
to shoppers, who spend excessive time shopping around. There is also often a
lack of information from staff that do not know the product.
Today we have a system where there are too
many people competing to do the same thing, and too few people
serving others and doing God's will. People are therefore
taking a limited number of paid jobs and money away from honest people. If
one succeeds in a career or enterprise to make money, they are
therefore preventing someone else succeeding under such a
competitive environment of limited opportunities. This is not a problem if they use the money for God's will. People try hard to
unsuccessfully find paid work and money for many years as a result. The honest
people who often try hard, often have their lives are destroyed as a result.
Someone who was involved in the occult
quoted "Satan's entire kingdom runs on the principle of competition;
just the opposite of God's kingdom where everyone serves each other. (See
http://www.mt.net/~watcher/bluey.html)" That report describes how witches compete for demons to destroy each other.
It is strange that
the so-called Christians say that competition is good, and that it is what we
should be doing!!! Unlike the Apostles who gave their worldly professions away
to work for the Lord, people of today are competing to study or work for a corrupted
However, there are some exceptions, where doing God's will involves some serious competition that can't be avoided.
For example, we all need some limited natural resources and money to survive and obtain the essentials. Taking these would disadvantage others and be considered competitive. But if we seek to do God's will, we can help people in return for taking what we need. Therefore, the net benefit would be good.
competition is probably good when it is for exercise, personal motivation
and used as a means to lead people to God.
But when it comes to serious
competition there are many problems such as over training, lust for worldly success, money and
medals. There is pride if you win and distraction from doing God's will. When you lose there is anger,
disappointment, envy, regret and resentment. The
disappointment and low self-esteem incurred by people losing is causing
suicides, drugs, family breakdown, crime, injuries, anger with God, and people
not being thankful to God. These things are not from God.
the example of the Olympic games. It has medals containing the Greek
goddess of victory and is highly riddled by drugs and corruption. It encourages, competition and
greed, along with the worship of idols. The Olympics causes addiction in sport
to distract the elect. It wastes money, which is the goal of the
international bankers who profit from the interest. It honours the Olympic
spirit and the flame. This is a god of the Olympics. Worshiping other gods
is diabolical in God's site. The Olympics is highly esteemed by men, therefore an
abomination in the sight of God. (See Luke 16:15.)
serious sport encourages greed and large payouts, and it motivates
people to desire fame and fortune. Gambling, match fixing and
bribes are an unfortunate by-product.
God's way and a Solution
God's way is a rightfully regulated fair go for everyone where everyone is
well off. If that was the current practice, small businesses along with
everyone else, would be doing well and there would be such a great variety
innovative products and services. Instead these products and services have been
suppressed, so that we have to rely on a corrupt system. Fair price control should be
used to benefit everyone and stop companies from making large profits. Instead of competing with each other, small specialist outlets focusing on very similar things could work together and share profits. Fair price control could be used to ensure fair and low prices. More fair regulation would ensure groups of businesses don't become too domineering. This would give a more fair chance for small specialized businesses because they would not have to compete. Instead of some businesses marketing
many products that other nearby businesses sell they could focus more on the ones they know about. The system would be far more efficient without people wasting time shopping around. There would also be
less advertising costs.
kingdom is about loving, sharing, contentment, praise, joy and giving, which
are the opposite of competition.
