the time you spend using illegal copies of software or data cannot possibly be time spent with God
I have goods (software) I would love to see people buy. But why should I expect God to allow that to happen if I am using software that I have not paid for?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Mathew 6:19-20 19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Giving 10 percent
prefer to tithe to poor, widows and orphans
If i gave everything i had away, then I would not be able to generate new income and then would not be able to tithe
i would not be much use to generate income if i gave it all away

1 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. 3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. 4 Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. 5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. 7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, 8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Wear the band on the left hand when one can in good conscience say that they are achieving their personal best in adhering fervently the James 1:27 Scripture. Wear the band on the left hand inside out when they are not doing so but are repenting. Wear the band on the right hand when temporarily taking a break. Wear the band on the right hand inside out when knowingly they are not actively pursuing James 1:27 Take the band off when not in the game at all.
