what you own, owns you.

i like these verses:

mat 6:

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Those are great, things of the world and earth only last for a short time. The place where Jesus and his father is will last forever, its eternal yet we waste our time building in a place that will soon disappear like wasting time playing a MMORPG with an expiry date soon up.

NLT 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.

KJV 2 Peter 3:10 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Found a few passages of the earth being burned up, world was destroyed by water previously fire next?

Reddit is much more and religious than these alternatives.

People on saidit are really into conspiracies, for instance.

Yeah, everyone goes to school and works hard to be poor. This is more terrible advice.

The more i read the bible, the outlook i see for Christians lifestyle is of a monk.

KJV Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

KJV Colossians 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

School educating about the world is good but becoming more ingrained to lifestyles of the world is not. Easier said than done growing up in the west.
