Taipei, Feb. 13 (CNA) Taiwan-based smartphone vendor HTC Corp. has declined to comment on a report that its founder, Cher Wang (王雪紅), has been swindled by members of her church.
The Chinese-language World Journal, published in the United States, cited U.S. court papers as saying that Wang was cheated to the tune of US$7.4 million.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of California, said in a news release that between 2004 and January 2016, Jonathan Chang (常如武), 60, and his wife Grace Chang (李薇林), 57, swindled money out of a donor.
Although the news release did not identify the donor, media reports have said that the donor is Wang.
Every Christian plan for victory must factor in the repulsive figure of Judas Iscariot.
National & State politics can be written off as utterly corrupt, and fundamentally irredeemable. Local politics can be a forum for victory, but the goal is primarily to break down and degrade power and roll back the endless sea of laws and taxes, not to gather power. The goal of the magistrate is only to suppress public evil as defined by God, nothing more.
Any attempt to gather power will naturally attract sociopaths wearing Christian masks, like flies to rotting meat. A drive to undercut power, to decentralize and liberate and grant liberty and freedom, is naturally repulsive to Our Compassionate Friends.
Satan believes in centralizing power: God, in decentralizing power (and holding people accountable at a later date). Christians are to follow the ways of the Lord, not the ways of power-adoring, control-hungry Secularists or Muslims.
(Who are always and everywhere eager to grind Christians under their heels, by the way. Along with their not-so-secret conservative political fellow-travellers.)
When looking for a charity, careful attention must be paid to where the money goes, including the use of outside auditors (preferably not Christian, as most modern Christians ‘professionals’ only produce substandard third-rate work.)
Yes, this is a disgrace to the God they claim to worship… but since when has God’s Commandments mattered to them? Getting that raise and that pat on the head from (uncompromisingly anti-Christian) authorities is far more important to most of today’s believers than any of the promises of victory to be found in the Bible.
Trust must be earned, and standards must be set higher when it comes to Our Pure-hearted Christian Brothers than for other pagan (but far more honest and trustworthy) people, like Mormons or Shintoists.
