To those Mammon worshipping relatives who colluded and conspired for several years, with malice aforethought, to methodically defraud me of the inheritance I was due from my parents:

Proverbs 18:19  A brother wronged is more unyielding than a fortified city; disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel.

Pulpit Commentary

Verse 19. - A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city. Something must be supplied on which the comparative notion min, "than," depends. So we may understand "resists more," or something similar. A brother or a once close friend, when injured or deceived, becomes a potent and irreconcilable enemy. The idea of the preceding verses is carried on, and the primary thought is still concerning lawsuits and matters brought before a judge. This is shown in the second clause by the use of the word "contentions" (midyanim). And their contentions are like the bars of a castle. They close the door against reconciliation, shut the heart against all feeling of tenderness. True it is, Ξαλεποὶ πόλεμοι ἀδελφῶν (Eurip., 'Fragm.'). And again, 'Iph. Aul.,' 376 -

Δεινὸν κασιγήτοισι γίγνεσθαι λόγους
Μάχας θ ὅταν ποτ ἐμπέσωσιν εἰς ἔριν.
Aristotle also writes thus ('De Republ.,' 7:7): "If men receive no return from those to whom they have shown kindness, they deem themselves, not only defrauded of due gratitude, but actually injured. Whence it is said, 'Bitter are the quarrels of friends;' and, 'Those who love beyond measure also hate beyond measure.'" An English maxim gloomily decides, "Friendship once injured is forever lost." Pliny ('Hist. Nat.,' 37:4), "Ut adamas, si frangi contingat malleis, in minutissimas dissidit crustas, adeo ut vix oculis cerni queant: ita arctissima necessitudo, si quando contingat dirimi, in summam vertitur simultatem, et ex arctissimis foederibus, si semel rumpantur, maxima nascuntur dissidia." Ecclus. 6:9, "There is a friend, who being turned to enmity will also discover thy disgraceful strife," i.e. will disclose the quarrel which according to his representation will redound to thy discredit. The last clause is rendered in the Vulgate. Et judicia quasi vectes urbium; where judicia means "lawsuits," legal disputes; these bar out friendship.

For the pseudo-Christian Mammon worshippers, it is oh, so convenient, to brazenly claim the brother they perversely harmed economically, while defaming him as a matter of empathy deficit disordered routine, should forgive them and move on because that's what a "Christian" must do.

But, but, what about the Lord's Prayer and the request to have our trespasses forgiven, as we forgive those who trespass against us? Isn't that a conditional statement? Doesn't that mean our trespasses will not be forgiven unless we forgive any and all trespasses against us?

Nope. We are not to be bitter and we are not to take revenge, but we certainly are not to pretend the offense did not occur. The "forgive and forget" notion is an even greater trespass because, unconditional forgiveness (i.e. no repercussions for the trespass) encourages MORE of the original trespass!

The forgiving we engage in with the Lord's prayer is an act of acceptance that God is a Just Judge and has the full picture on 'who did what' that we will never be privy to in this life.

This does not mean we give the "benefit of the doubt" to a blatant trespass. If that was true, then Jesus would NOT have said what He quite clearly said in Matthew 18:17 (see below) and also in the instructions given to his Apostles (Luke 9:5) when they were refused friendly hospitality (There are several other Scriptures on this issue, but I will limit myself to just the two dicussed here).

Luke 9:5 (KJV)
5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

The Mammon worshippers immediately quote scripture about "Do not judge, lest ye be judged". This a deliberate Orwellian distortion of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

To begin with, the ones, in my case, who DID the sinful JUDGING are the ones who sinned against their brother by entering into a conspiracy to defraud their brother of his inheritance with the help of corrupt Judges, Banking officials and Court auction and "mediation" (see Orwell) officials. They DECIDED (with the cooperation of my father) that I was not "worthy" of the inheritance. IOW, they JUDGED me, and knowing the law was on my side, deliberately proceeded, once their decision (i.e. cheap rationalization) to defraud me was agreed on, to game the Legal system to achieve their goal.

When I learned of this attempt to defraud me, I simply pointed out to the Court (and later on to the FBI) that this was a crime of financial fraud. I did not "judge" anybody by stating the truth; I did what any Christian is obligated to do when he learns of a fraud; defend the truth and expose the lie.

I had warned my family members, over the phone, on more than one occasion, NOT to engage in fraud against my person. They, of course, said they would never do anything like that but they could "not control" one of my brothers and my "father". That was a lie when they said it and I told them so. They stopped direct communication except for occasional threats to my person (My oldest sister said that the brother running the inheritance "operation" said there were "too many" heirs in a very strange tone of voice over the phone in a conference call) and to my economic well being (My oldest sister mendaciously claimed I would have to pay ALL the legal fees if they were "forced" to sue me), followed shortly thereafter (because I did not bend to their ex-curia demands) by the legal documents.

Jesus Christ was quite clear about that. He said that IF a brother sins against you, you are to tell them about it and ask them to repent. IF said brother or sister REFUSES to repent, or claims they do "repent" without making absolutely any effort to make restitution (at LEAST 2 fold for the injury), then you are to no longer associate with them, PERIOD.

Matthew 18:17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

God will NOT forgive sin if there is no honest attempt at making RESTITUTION. WHY? Because there is no genuine repentence if there is no restitution.

So please do not bother to send me Christmas Cards claiming you "miss" your kid brother or you are "praying that you will see me soon". 

I may be a poor old washed up failure economically, but I am still a Christian and, consequently, cannot countenance hypocrisy.

Beyond these occasional posts, that I have no idea whether anyone in my family reads, which I post so others may learn of my experiences, direct communication with my brothers and sisters is not going to happen. My father died at the ripe old age of 96 back in 2008. One of the ringleaders of the fraud tried repeatedly to get me to sue my father. I refused. But it didn't matter. The brother ringleader just wanted to turn my father totally against me. That was accomplished when I told the truth in motions presented (filed) to the the court, in defense of the truth, when my father and my siblings (all 6 of them) sued me.

Of course I am not going to be bitter about having experienced this legal travesty at the hand of my brothers and sisters. They are the ones in the hot seat, not me. They are the ones who refuse to repent. They are the ones who will have to explain why the poorest member of their family was not worthy of being treated equally by them and why they, particularly the ones among them that call themselves "Christians", entered into a criminal conspiracy in which they willingly agreed to be accesories to the crime of financial fraud.

As far as the world is concerned, they got away with it. The FBI thanked me for the info and I haven't heard from them since (years have passed). The Bank Corrupted Court sided with them and the fake mediation and the fake foreclosure and the fake auction took place just as they had planned it from the start.

May God have mercy on my corrupt relatives. I hope they all manage to genuinely repent (i.e. make at least 2 fold restitution) of their trespass against God (all trespasses against people are, in the final analysis, against God) before they leave this valley of tears. Because, if they don't, the Holy Scriptures make it quite clear that God won't cut them any slack whatsoever.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
