Billions for Bankers–Debts for the People

by Pastor Sheldon Emry

Preface

“The love of money is the root of all evil.” (1 Tim. 6:10) “If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.” Exodus 22:25

“Take no usury of him, or increase…thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury.” Leviticus 25:36-67

“Unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: That the Lord thy God may bless thee.” Deuteronomy 23:20

In the early Church, any interest on debt was considered usury.

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” — Thomas Jefferson

Pankajanghri













The following is an exerpt from a lecture by Pankajanghri Prabhu (one of the twin brother head pujaries/priests in Mayapur ISKCON  India) it is taken from a lecture he gave in chowpati Bombay at the Radha-gopinath ISKCON.

“What can you do to advance spiritually, what can you do? You think, we think, we identify with this body, what can you do? You got to cry! If you understand your position you will actually be crying, that I am so puffed up I think I can, you know, by my own ability, that ability is given by Krishna right. So even if your doing bhajan, Krishna says I am the ability in man, the ability to do that is a gift from Krsna and the result is a gift from Krishna ultimately. That was, this is Prabhupada’s mood. We’ve accept that he is our acharya. He’s the founder acharya so that mood is always, that his mood is always prevalent, those principals that Prabhupada set should always be prevalent whatever our gurus say they should be conform with that, the details may change here and there but they should all conform with the mood of Srila Prabhupada because he is our founder acharya so his position is specially prominent and, and, that mood is preaching just go out and preach what else can you do, just go out, and what, what are you going to preach I am just saying, your just saying what you’ve heard from some one else its all borrowed information your saying, nothings your own, what do you know about spiritual life? What do we know? I still think I’m this body I don’t know, I don’t know who I am I’m not self realized in that aspect….what else can you do?













Burlington Vermont













Recently I was at a nice university in Burlington Vermont. I travel all the time trying to serve others in their spiritual life’s by distributing Srila Prabhupada’s transcendental books.

I really like Burlington Vermont a lot because there is a lot of earthy, open minded people there that are hip on current issues relating to the environment, politics, and more importantly many are open minded and on a spiritual path.

I say that it is more important that they are on a spiritual path because if someone is on a real spiritual path then they are not going to do stupid things like destroy the environment, harm and exploit others, eat meat etc – Einstein said “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

So Vermont is one of my favorite places.

When I was at the university I noticed a big sign in the very center of campus above a bulletin board.

I thought that this was awesome!   Just think what the world would be like if we all grew up with this type of conditioning and conscious tolerance around us.

Struggle for existence













There are many big cities all over the surface of the globe, and wherever one looks he sees the struggle for existence going on twenty-four hours a day. people rush about in cars going seventy and eighty miles an hour, constantly coming and going, and this sets the scene of the great struggle for existence. One has to rise early in the morning and travel in that car at breakneck speed. There is always the danger of an accident, and one has to take great care. In his automobile, the living entity is full of anxieties, and his struggle is not at all auspicious. Apart from human beings, other species like cats and dogs are also struggling very hard day and night for existence. Thus the struggle for existence continues, and the conditioned soul changes from one position to another. (SB 5.14.1)

As long as we have these bodies this struggle must go on. If we only work for the body and the things relating to the body we simply will be fighting a battle that we are destined to lose against death.

On the other hand, if we spend whatever time we have reading Srila Prabhupada’s books and chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, then that will make us happy, fulfilled and ultimately in the end when these bodies do lose the battle to death everything will not be lost. Because all the transcendental activities we did will stick with us and liberate us from the repetition of birth and death, samsara, and we will return back home back to Krishna, that is the happy ending!

Specifically in regard to this original edition when the editors at the BBT tried to change it Srila Prabhupada said:

“It is very serious situation. You write one letter that “Why you have made so many changes?” And whom to write? Who will care? All rascals are there. Write to Satsvarupa that “This is the position. They are doing anything and everything at their whim.” The next printing should be again to the original way….So write them immediately that “The rascal editors, they are doing havoc”… They cannot change anything”  (June 22, 1977, Vrindavan India)
