JOHN 3:16 – 17
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
You have to understand the problem before you can fully appreciate the solution.
Today I woke up early and went to work out. I recently joined a group called F3. Without getting into the details, it is a free men’s workout group that meet early in the morning at park districts. After working out I came home, got cleaned, up and laid down for a few minutes before starting my day. I realized how blessed I am and how much I appreciate the little things in life. The journey is hard but there is much joy that comes through my daily walk with God and the disciple of life.
Just as I have been working out physically, I have also been working hard to learn about economics and money. Bitcoin was just the first door that I walked through that lead me on this journey to understand how things work with money and finances. I have heard a number of people say that they have had the same experience. Once you get, “Orange Pilled” and understand the philosophy behind bitcoin and what it does to solve the big problem then you want to understand everything around it more. I often think of this in terms of the Old and New Testament.
“Jesus Saves” is a common saying that I have heard all my life. It makes sense to me because I have an understanding of the problem of sin and the consequences of it. The Old Testament presented the problem, that we all have sinned and can not repair the damage on our own. Jesus is the answer to the problem of sin. In a similar way, bitcoin is a solution to the problem of fiat money and unsound economics. You have to understand why things are broken before you can truly understand why bitcoin is so great.
As I dive deeper into economics I run into a lot of negativity as well. The journey of understanding the problem can lead to some dark and frustrating realizations regarding our government, economy, and money. It reminds me of Lamentations as Solomon has all this knowledge and wisdom and it leads him to face the reality of life. What I want you to walk away from today is that knowledge and wisdom should lead to a better place. Face the messed up stuff and understand it, but use that knowledge to prepare and protect yourself and your family.
Take the time to understand the problem first.
