For by grace you are saved through faith, and this not of yourselves; [it is] of God the gift,
not as a result of works, so that not anyone may boast.

Acts 8:18-19 "And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost."

Acts 8:20 " But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money."

Mark 12:43 "And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:"

"For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."
- Mark 12:44


Luke 19:46 "...My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves."


'slacking on the job'.


2 Maccabees 4:7-14
Jason as High Priest.

"7But Seleucus died,* and when Antiochus surnamed Epiphanes succeeded him on the throne, Onias’ brother Jason obtained the high priesthood by corrupt means:a8in an interview, he promised the king three hundred and sixty talents of silver, as well as eighty talents from another source of income.9Besides this he would undertake to pay a hundred and fifty more, if he was given authority to establish a gymnasium and a youth center* for it and to enroll Jerusalemites as citizens of Antioch.

10When Jason received the king’s approval and came into office, he immediately initiated his compatriots into the Greek way of life.11He set aside the royal concessions granted to the Jews through the mediation of John, father of Eupolemus* (that Eupolemus who would later go on an embassy to the Romans to establish friendship and alliance with them); he set aside the lawful practices and introduced customs contrary to the law.b12c With perverse delight he established a gymnasium* at the very foot of the citadel, where he induced the noblest young men to wear the Greek hat.13The craze for Hellenism and the adoption of foreign customs reached such a pitch, through the outrageous wickedness of Jason, the renegade and would-be high priest,14that the priests no longer cared about the service of the altar. Disdaining the temple and neglecting the sacrifices, they hastened, at the signal for the games, to take part in the unlawful exercises at the arena."

"Pop Muzik" is a 1979 song by M, a project by English musician Robin Scott, from the debut album New York • London • Paris • Munich.

The single, first released in the UK in early 1979, was bolstered by a music video (directed by Brian Grant) that was well received by critics. The clip featured Scott as a DJ singing into a microphone from behind an exaggerated turntable setup, at times flanked by two female models who sang and danced in a robotic manner. The video also featured Brigit Novik, Scott's partner at the time, who provided the backup vocals for the track.[4]

The single's B-side, "M Factor", was featured in two different versions. The original cut appeared on the first UK and European releases of the single, while a slightly remixed version appeared on the single released in the United States and Canada.

Cops Seize RM1.3 Million Fake Cash From Counterfeit Money Syndicate in Nilai

Just yesterday morning at about 11am, Malaysian police conducted a raid at a house located in Kampung Jijan Tengah, Nilai, and confiscated counterfeit cash amounting to over RM1.3 million. According to the Malay Mail, this comprised 3,464 pieces of counterfeit American Dollar notes worth US$346,400 (RM1.3 million) and 136 counterfeit Malaysian Ringgit notes worth RM13,600 with each note carrying the value of either USD$100 or RM100.

Cops Seize RM1.3 Million Fake Cash From Counterfeit Money Syndicate in Nilai


Fake banknotes, most of all the Malaysian ringgit, are being increasingly used in Thailand’s south, the Thai Association of Foreign Exchange warned on September 6.

“Very realistic” counterfeit ringgit notes are being used by Malaysian visitors to Southern Thailand, and many shops owners, restaurant staff and even money exchanges are unable to examine the foreign banknotes for authenticity because they are not equipped with money detectors.

Even banks have lodged reports to police after they received fake notes from locals and tourists.

The most common fakes are the 50 and 100 ringgit banknote. They are also circulating inland in Malaysia in areas with high visitor traffic such as Malacca.

Police said that the notes are “easily” produced with a personal computer, scanner and printer and come close to the original in look and feel, but lose some details of lines and patterns, microprints and the small strip embedded in the genuine notes.

Thus, the fake notes are mixed into real ones to deceive staff at several outlets and to cover the fact that they have the same serial numbers. To detect a fake ringgit, notes need to be checked with an UV money detector and also be checked for the watermark and the holographic texture.

Other fake currencies found in Thailand include Indian rupee and United Arab Emirates’ dirham.

As per Thai law, those who knowingly pass off counterfeit currency can be imprisoned for up to 20 years.
