        Don’t be distracted by criticism.

        Remember the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you.

    The employee was in on it. He left the door open and was helping until the other thief told him the take was 60/40 not 50/50.

    Come on just let the guy have the money. He probably has 5+ wives and 10+ kids at home that he’s trying to feed.

    By any means, a worthy member must procure the tithing which is owed to the Lord. Nephi 16:39

      Not LDS so don’t have the book. I believe in the Bible. —Genesis 28:12-22
      “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.”

      So I do pay it. Do You have a hate for all christian or just the LDS ones.

        No one is hating anyone Mr. Oldman. Key word is tolerance…
