Wolfs in Sheep's Clothings!!!

I hate it when I receive mails like the one below. I hate it even more when the person uses God's name in vain. I can imagine how God must be fuming, but as usual, His loving heart is ever so forgiving for He knows how sinful His homo sapiens are inclined to be.

The writer probably knows the Bible inside out, and upside down. Why did he/she use the title, "Trust in the Lord" and even quoted from the Bible.? He knew that it would enable some Christians to put their guard down. The writer is definitely not a Christian for a Christian means, "Christ - I am Nothing!"

While a Christian makes full use of the brains that he has been given, he also knows that his prosperity and blessings come from God Himself. Hence there would be no necessity to come up with cunning ways to enrich himself.

A Christian should be gentle like the doves, but alert, like a serpent for he knows he is living in a world where he can get devoured if he is not worldly wise about his surroundings. To be kind, helpful and gentle does not imply to be stupid and trusting!

I pray and hope that everyone throughout the world, regardless of his religious beliefs, would be careful when receiving such boring emails. Boring, because they all sound and read alike - if we keep striking lotteries almost every other day, why, we will all end up richer than the Queen of England or the Sultan of Brunei!! If there are so many "helpless" wealthy heirs, they do not deserve to inherit anything because of their unimaginative and simple minds.

TRUST IN THE LORDFrom: Mrs. Carolina Marino
Please Reply to My Personal Email:

I am the above named person from Switzerland. I am married to Dr Gregory Marino who worked with Switzerland Embassy in America for seven years before he died in the year 2008.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only two weeks. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my Matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late
Husband was alive he deposited the sum of 24Million Dollars (twenty four Million United State Dollars) on the safe deposit box with the bank. Europe.

Presently, this money is still deposited on the safe deposit box with the bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next four months due to cancer Problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this Fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use these funds to fund churches,
Orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.

I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where
This money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. The lord he will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.

With God all things are possible As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the BANK in Europe I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original- beneficiary of this Fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful
all through your life.

Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein Hoping to hearing from you. I have set aside 30% for you and for your time and 10% for any expenses if there is any then remaining balance for the word of God.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Carolina Marino
