WHINE TAX

In this season of mudslinging I offer the following consideration for the improvement of any church fellowship.

WHINE TAX

+++

REHASHING OLD INSULTS OR MISTAKES OF OTHERS
$200 for each rehash OR Confession and Sincere Repentance for holding bitterness in your heart.
But I say to you, that whosoever is angry with his brother, shall be in danger of the judgment... If therefore thou offer thy gift at the altar, and there thou remember that thy brother hath any thing against thee; Leave there thy offering before the altar, and go first to be reconciled to thy brother: and then coming thou shalt offer thy gift. Matthew 5: 22-24

+++

COMPLAINTS ABOUT OTHERS AND NITPICKING
$200 for each complaint OR Confession and Sincere Repentance for being petty.
Judge not, that you may not be judged, For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. Matthew 7:1, 2

+++

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISMS
First critique free; $100 for each critique thereafter OR Confession and Sincere Repentance for lack of compassion and charity for others’ weaknesses.
And forgive us our debts, as we also forgive our debtors. Matthew 5:12

+++

COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE WEATHER

$50 each complaint Or Confession and Sincere Repentance for not having an attitude of gratitude for God’s blessings in your life.
Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil. Matthew 6:34

+++

CONSTRUCTIVE SOLUTIONS WITH CONSIDERATION FOR OTHER’S STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
ALWAYS Whine Tax FREE
Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do. We ask you, brothers, to respect those who are laboring among you and who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you, and to show esteem for them with special love on account of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. We urge you, brothers, admonish the idle gossips, cheer the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient with all. See that no one returns evil for evil; rather, always seek what is good (both) for each other and for all.
Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5: 11-18


That's me away then.

Thanks for visiting my blog. And thank you for telling me about Plain Catholics. I read most of your website and found it very interesting. Also, I agree with the whine tax!
