Laura, this is why the doctrine of “the priesthood of the believer” is the most important teaching in the Bible

Hey Laura, Please read this for me. It’s 4 a.m. Sunday morning and I couldn’t sleep thinking about our conversation we had earlier today or Saturday (I have not been asleep yet).

As I tried to tell you before I am concerned about you studying with a Pentecostal person and from a Pentecostal study guide.

As I explained to you I have went down that road and it caused me a lot spiritual harm and grief, and I do not want to see that happen to you, so I decided to take a some time to try to explain why I’m concerned.

There is a lot of bondage in Pentecostal and Charismatic teaching and Churches.

Here’s a couple of scriptures that I will use to go on and talk about why the doctrine or teaching of The Priesthood of the Believer is the most important teaching in the Bible, and how it can protect us from bondage.

Psalms 105:15 King James Version (KJV)  “Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

1 Peter 2:5-6 King James Version (KJV)  “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

As I explained earlier my experience about speaking in tongues and about how the Charismatic church I was in had a pastor that was so controlling that when my uncle quit his job and then that Pastor told him he did not give my uncle permission to quit that job so he needed to go get his job back. That is what I mean by bondage.

Whenever a church or Pastor is highly controlling like that it is bondage because you are bound and obligated to believe and do what they tell you. And Jesus said he came to deliver us from bondage.

Hebrews 2:14-15 King James Version (KJV) – “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

One thing that is different between the Pentecostal and charismatic churches and mainstream denominational churches such as Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterians, Lutherans and others is that these churches believe in what is called The Priesthood of the Believer.

That means that we do not need mediators between us and God and we do not need priests to tell us what the Bible means and neither do we need priest, like as in a Catholic priest, to confess our sins to. No, we can go straight to Jesus Christ and through his Spirit we can confess our sins and be taught the deeper things of God, not relying on men, but on God and His Spirit to teach us and guide us into His truth.

But it’s different in the Pentecostal and charismatic churches. You cannot go directly to God in the Pentecostal and charismatic churches. You can but if you arrive at a different teaching than what they teach they will tell you that “we are anointed and we are priest and you are not so it is Gods will that you trust us and believe what we are teaching you”.

(A side-note – As I mentioned today the difference between a Pentecostal church and a charismatic church is that beginning in the year 1900 some people started to teach that the gifts of the Spirit, such as the gift of speaking in tongues, the gift of prophecy and the gift of healing, had been restored to the church. The church had not taught or believed these things since the death of Jesus’s apostles and these gifts was only given to his apostles, and some then the apostles gave the gift to some others through the laying on of hands. The Pentecostals then formed a denomination and then sub-denominations of Pentecostalism. But in the 1960’s the Pentecostal teaching starting to go into the non Pentecostal denominations. But instead of forming now denominations they stayed in those other denominations, so instead of the Charismatics being a denomination like the Pentecostals the Charismatics are a movement that affects other churches and brought the new teachings into other denominations beside the Pentecostal denomination.

In Pentecostal churches, charismatic churches and also in the Catholic Church there are two types of Christians. The Layman and the Clergy. In those churches the Layman, which is us (the non leaders), need to go to the Clergy, which are the leaders and priest, to be told what the Bible teaches. But the Word of God says we believers are all priest so we no longer need to go to priest.

In Pentecostal and charismatic churches they will refer to the leaders and teachers as “the anointed of God” and they will refer this Old Testament scripture I posted above and repeat here.

Psalms 105:15 King James Version (KJV)  “Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

They take this out of context to say that you cannot criticize the pastor or teachers or what the pastor or leaders teach, you just have to accept it because the pastor or teacher are taught to be anointed and you and me (the Laymen or non leaders) are not anointed, and the pastor or teacher is speaking for God and we just need to listen and believe what we are taught.

When you study with your Pentecostal friend she will not say this at first but after you have spent weeks or months studying with her and if you do not conclude that what she is teaching is the truth, she will tell you that she was taught by God’s anointed and that study guide that you have was written by God’s anointed, so it is the absolute truth and that’s what you’re supposed to believe.

Mainline denominations do not believe this. They believe that we can go straight to God to be taught the word of God. In a Baptist, Methodist or other Mainline denominational Church the pastor or teacher does not have the final say on what the Bible teaches. All the mainline denominations teach the same fundamental, cardinal or essential doctrines, but in non-essential teachings we are free to believe what we want or rather what we conclude by our own study.

For instance, in Bible Prophecy or what is called eschatology (the study of end times) most Baptist are per-millennial per-tribulational Rapture believers. You may not understand what all that means but what I’m trying to say is that as a Baptist you do not have to believe the same thing about prophecy or the end times that the majority of the people in the Baptist Church do because it’s a non-essential doctrine and we have freedom to go to God to find out what his word teaches about prophecy. But in the Pentecostal and charismatic churches you do not have that option. You have to believe what they teach or you will not be accepted into the group and you will be shunned and you could even be told that you’re not a real Christian and cannot be saved unless you believe what they tell you that you must believe.

There is no no longer a special anointed or priest class that teaches the “non-anointed or non-priest” what to believe. No because all of us believers are anointed and priest of God and we all have direct access to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

1 Peter 2:5-6 King James Version (KJV)  “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

The Bible also says in several instances that we are all anointed and that we do not need men to teach us because we have the spirit of God to teach us the final word as to what the word of God says.

1 John 2:20-27 New King James Version (NKJV) – “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.  These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive youBut the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

That means we do not need a mediator to go to to tell us what God and his Bible really teaches expect into guide us not to tell us “hey this is the way it is and the way your supposed to believe and have to believe”.

When you said that if the lady teaches you wrong you will be able to tell or discern that what you’re being taught is wrong because you have the spirit of God to teach you and guide you. And that is very very correct. That in effect cancels the need for any teacher to tells us what the final say so is as to what the bible teaches. Teachers and Pastors jobs are to guide us in studying Gods word, not to say this is what the Bible teaches and this is what we you need to believe. Basically if God is going to guide you, what do you need to study with somebody and their study guide for to tell you the final word on what the Bible teaches? That’s why I suggested to learn basic Bible study methods and come to your own conclusions.

I studied the Bible on my own for over 15 years before I ever joined a church after my charismatic experience where I never studied the Bible for myself, they told me what it teaches and I had no choice but to believe what they told me to believe.

I concluded that the mainline denominations have the basic truths and all the mainline denominations believe the basics or the essentials in the same way.

The Pentecostal and charismatic churches for the most part believe these basic teachings or doctrines also but they add a whole lot of things that are not biblical.

As I lay here and think about this I do not want you to start believing false teaching because it’s bad for your mental and spiritual health. I mentioned that they teach people different things incrementally, and one thing leads to another that leads to another and then next thing you know you’re believing something that the Bible and no way teaches.

All groups like The Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and so forth are called Cults in the sense that they don’t teach what the Christian church has always taught, and they use mind control to get people to believe what they believe. You might think my control is a far-fetched idea but here is how they do it.

The Pentecostals and charismatics will tell you that on top of the essentials that you can have the second experience with the Holy Spirit. The Bible teaches that all believers are indwelled with the Spirit of God, but they teach a second experience of the Spirit that they call the Baptism of the Spirit which only genuinely happened in the days of the Apostles, but no longer happens today, and the Baptism of the Spirit only happened to the apostles and the ones they laid hands on to impart the Spirit to.

So they say there is supposed to be the second experience, and so you are supposed to go after and desire this second experience. So that is a bind that puts pressure on you to seek the second experience, as for instance to speak in tongues, but then if you do not experience or receive that experience then that’s your fault. It’s not that they might be teaching incorrectly it’s because you have some secret sin or you do not have enough faith and so that puts you in a double bind. The first blind is that you’re supposed to have the second experience. The second bind is that if you don’t get the second experience, it is your fault. And that is a frustrating situation to be in and that is a way to manipulate people into believing things. In this way they manipulate people and the people do not even know they are being manipulated.

Because I’m concerned that you will be taught a lot of things that are not biblical and that that will cause you spiritual grief or pain I thought there was two ways I could try to help you. One was to come along behind your Pentecostal friend and “unteach” what she teaches you falsely. I could show you what the Bible actually says and untangle the way that they’re going to slightly twisted the Scripture to make you and others believe things that the Bible really doesn’t teach. Or the other is just to remind you that you have the Spirit of God, and you do not need me or your Pentecostal friend, or anyone else, for you to learn the deeper truths of God in the Bible because you have the spirit of God that will guide you and teach you and you youself are a believer priest. Teachers can guide us but not tell us “hey this is what the bible teaches and this is what you have to or must believe”. So all you really need is basic good and solid Bible study methods.

Below I have included a few relevant articles for you to read and some terms that are important to know. And I also include a link to the Bible study method book that I bought and used whenever I went to the College of Biblical Studies. The College of Biblical Studies is not a denominational Bible College. My professor, and other professors there, were not Baptist or Methodist. They are just Bible teachers that taught in just Bible churches. I would have went to one of my professors church regularly if it had not been almost an hour and a half away from me.

So what I’m saying is they teach what the Bible says without a denominational slant. What they will teach you most denominations and non denominational churches will all believe, and some of the things they will teach you not all denominational churches will believe because denominational churches get some things right and some things wrong.

Being just Bible Believers, Bible Teachers and pastors of Bible Churches they tend to be closest to God’s truth according to what I concluded after around 25 years of personal study. I studied on my own for a long time before I decided that it is the mainline denominations that have the truth and they share the same belief in the same essential and fundamental doctrines. But in the non-essential doctrines the mainline denominational churches and non denominational churches believe different things, and in that area of non-essentials I believe the Baptist Church are the closest to what the Bible teaches. There are fundamentalist Baptist churches that are way off the mark but generally most Baptist believe what I believe to be the most correct teachings of the Bible. So I add those resources below for you. Also the website GotQuestions.Org is a non denominational site and they do not teach a denominational slant.

And the book I include a link to is also written by non-denominational teachers. And they are not actually teaching you what the Bible teaches, they are just teaching you how to study and how to extract from the Bible what the Bible is actually teaching and what the Christian church has historically taught since the days of Jesus and the Apostles.

Some important terms to know are as follows…

hermeneutics  – her·me·neu·tics = the branch of knowledge that deals with interpretation, especially of the Bible or literary texts.

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS selling nice RV’s at very low prices on Craigslist, they are Ruthlessly Evil and Heartless

Hello there, my name is Damon and I could have gotten scammed out of $2,000 trying to buy a “decent RV at a really good price” (if there is even such a thing?, and no, there is not any such a thing) on Craigslist if my “spidy senses” had not kicked in.

Here is how I tried to make them regret trying to scam me and others.

In memory of my friend Buck Smith, who was in his 80’s and got scammed out of about $30,000, I am sharing my experience here in hopes it will help someone not get scammed. The loss was very devastating to Buck and his wife Elaine so please be careful and spread awareness about scams and scams artist online, and also over the phone and even through email and snail-mail.

When my elderly mother finally got online before she passed away I was very concerned that she would fall for some kind of a scam.  And after Buck and Elaine got scammed I was even more concerned so I preached to her a lot about being aware of scams. I was pleased when I found out all she could really comprehend and ended up wanting to do online was playing spades, she really did not even use Facebook much so I got to were I did not worry so much about her getting taken to the proverbial cleaners.

Before continuing to read my story, if you are concerned you or your loved ones might get scammed, please read the following articles to learn the tell tell sings of scams and how to avoid them.

Please do not end up like Buck and Elaine. They come close to being homeless in their 80’s, so read my story and share it with your loved ones.

This first link is to an Australian government website that list some types of scams and a lot of information about how to spot and avoid them. The second link is to an extensive list of various kinds of online and offline scams.  The 3rd link is to a short and concise article from the BBB that was very informative. It is pretty simplified and would be something you could look over with your elderly loved ones if you’re concerned they might get scammed.

Now I will share my experience of how I could have gotten scammed trying to buy an RV because I was desperate.

BE VERY CAREFUL ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE DESPERATE FOR SOMETHING.

I am looking to buy a 2/3 acre lot and put a Loft Cabin Shell on it and do the work finishing it myself. The whole process could take between 2-3 years and I would need a place to stay while doing the work until I at least got the cabin finished enough to rough it out and stay in it before the work was completed.

I considered renting a spare room from a close friend but I am not easy to live with and I did not want to strain our friendship.  My initial idea of making the most of the money my mom left me in insurance money when she died was to get an RV I could hopefully live in for 10 years or so. I was looking at new or newer RV’s in about the $15,0000 to $20,000 range and then I had the idea about the Loft Cabin. But after the idea of doing a Cabin instead I then had the idea that I would look into an RV under $2,000 to live in for 1-2 years on my friends property.

I had just found out I would have an additional $8,000 to $10,000 dollar expense of tying to property into the city water and sewer and that kinda put the project out of my reach so I was desperate to find a “decent RV at a really good price” and that desperation almost got me in trouble.

I found about 8 really nice RV’s for under $2,000 on Craigslist. I sensed it was all a scam pretty quickly but if I had not been desperate I would have seen right away it was too good to be true and never would have even inquired about the RV’s if I had not been desperate.

I had an email exchange with an “Amy” and a “Tanya”. I am sharing my exchange with Tanya to show how ruthless and heartless these sorry bastards are.

When I realized it was all a scam by looking to see what the real value of those RV’s of that year model are and what they are generally selling for, and if Ebay even offered the kind of sight unseen shipping but yet money back billing guarantee they were talking about, I decided to have some fun with “Amy” and “Tanya” and waist some of their time because I had some time to kill and that would be less time they would have to spend scamming someone else.

Both of their stories were very very similar and tried to tug at my heart-strings. Their stories were so close, and even the language so similar, that I now suspect Amy and Tanya were either the same person or different people involved with the same group of scammers.

The first bad sign was that when I called the numbers listed to call neither one answered, and when it went to voicemail the messages said something like “the text inbox you have reached is full so please leave a message”. They was using an online voice messaging service like the one Google offers.

Then I received a text from that number asking for my email address to get more information about the RV and I also got an appeal to my sympathy by a brief statement that they was very desperate to sell the RV quickly because of the loss of a loved one, in both cases they claimed they had lost their husbands in last 1-2 months.

Here is that exchange with “Tanya”.  I led on that I was also very desperate and really needed a great deal on an RV at a very terrible time in my life.

And then I took some true aspects of my story and added on enough to make them think that if they was scamming me it would cause me to commit suicide if I got scammed, and they did not care at all that they could push me over the edge and cause me to kill myself.

That is why I said they were both ruthless and heartless.

When I got “crazy” with Amy she quit responding but Tayna really wanted my $2,000 even when I told her I would be killing myself immediately if I found out I was getting scammed.

So I took it to the next level and told Tanya that if I ended up getting scammed and killing myself I would be sure to hunt her down and take her out too.

Here is Tanya’s first email to me.

Tanya = 2007 Keystone Montana 3475 RLS , is still for sale. This camper is in great shape. I’m the original owner. It has no damage or hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and  hasn’t been involved in any accident. I have a clear title, without liens or loans on it, under my name. I am selling it at this final price of $2,000 because my husband died 2 month ago (he had a heart attack) and it brings me bad memories and I, along with my daughter decided to sell the house and so we moved in Butte trying to start a new life. That’s the reason why I want to sell it asap and my last price is $2,000 including delivery to your home address.
Let me know if you are interested, email me back.
______________________________________

ME = Hello Tanya, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss and I hope you’re able to start a new beginning with you and your daughter. Maybe being in a such a beautiful place as Butte will help. I’m also starting a new beginning after my mother passed away. She had dementia and I was her full-time caretaker for the last couple years and she passed away a little over 3 months ago.

I’m definitely interested in your RV and would be willing to pay the full 2000 with no qualms about it if it is in as good of shape as you say. I would appreciate if you could take a short video of the inside and the outside and email it to me somehow or take some pictures and send me those. The RV park that I plan on staying in requires an appearance inspection for RVs over 10 years old. And San Angelo is a good ways away from Houston so I want to be able to make sure that I would definitely buy it after giving it a rigorous inspection. When you say it has been meticulously maintained I suppose that means that the roof has been resealed recently correct?

I am 52 and single and me and my dog want to live in it for a good long time so this is my last big decision in life and I want to make sure I do it correctly and if your RV is in that great of shape this will be the right thing for me to do.

I contacted the RV Resort and they do have spots available now so I could receive the delivery as soon as you wanted to do that. If you cannot send me a video or pictures and you’re confident it will pass inspection you would not have to send them but I would prefer looking at more pictures or a video before you make the drive.

Thank you ma’am and once again my sincere condolences go out to you. I lost my mom and 16 and a half year old chocolate lab within 2 months so I am recently familiar with extreme grief also.

Please contact me again ASAP and have a blessed afternoon and evening.
_________________________________________

Me = I am even more interested after looking into the specs for the RV. I would be willing to meet you halfway if you would like because I think it is about 6 hours from Houston to San Angelo if I’m correct. But that would be dependent upon getting my uncle to come help me because he has a fifth wheel hitch and I do not have one on my Dodge Dually. And from the one picture you have posted it looks like it would be good so if you could just send a few more pictures I’m almost certain that I would purchase it immediately.
______________________________________

Me = Hello again Tonya. I inquired about 8 or 9 RVs today and after going back and looking at the Craigslist ads for all of them and watching the YouTube video about your specific model again I am certain this is the best deal that I could get and would be willing to commit to buying it at that price sight unseen. The offer to meet you halfway would still stand good if I can get my uncle to do so at a good time for everyone.

Please contact me back as soon as possible because I’ve had three people respond to my contacts already and I want to be able to confidently tell them that I’ve already found the RV that is right for me if anyone else calls me back. Thank you very much
______________________________________

Tanya = As I told you in my first email, after my husband died I moved to another city (Butte, MT) and took a new job. The trailer is here and is already at the shipping company in Butte, MT, sealed and ready for the shipping. My presence won’t be necessary because I prearranged the deal with eBay. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-3 days. You will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about it you can send it back on my expense. If you are interested in knowing more info about how the whole process works, I can ask eBay to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. eBay will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller.
If you are serious about buying the trailer, please reply with your full name, shipping address and phone number so I can forward them to eBay in order to open a case regarding our deal. After that they will send you an invoice with more details about payment, shipping and insurance and will explain better the entire procedure.
PS: I have attached photos with the trailer.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you
_____________________________________Me = Yes ma’am I am very serious about buying the RV and I definitely have the cash in hand and would like you to go ahead and get eBay to send me that information. The delivery address will be 1601 South Main Street Highlands Texas 77562. My full name is Damon ***** and my phone number is 281- ***-****.If you’ll contact eBay and get them to send me that information I’ll go the RV Resort and prepay for the lot for it to be dropped on. I was looking into buying a quarter acre and putting a custom-built log cabin shell on it and finishing the inside work myself but doing this instead will allow me to keep my mother’s brand new car and pay it off in full. So after I get that information from eBay I will reserve the spot for it to be delivered. Sorry for not understanding that you had already moved to Butte and once again I wish you and your daughter well in your new life.
______________________________________Tanya = Okay Damon, I have received your info and I will initiate the transaction through eBay and they will contact us with all necessary details about this transaction. Let me know when you will hear from them. God Bless and Have a great day!
_______________________________________

ME = Hey Tonya, my friend Johnny recently told me I could spend a week or so at his cabin and Durango Colorado and I thought I would never take him up on the offer, but I’m in need of a vacation due to the stress of caring for my mother for several years, it might take me years just to get over the stress but I will never get over the loss of my mom, so I called my friend Johnny and he said the offer is still good and I could come to Butte Montana and pick the RV up myself and save you the shipping cost, and that would put more money in your pocket so you and your daughter could take some time off and do some exploring around the area since you just moved there and probably would like to see the sights.

My friend says I can swing by his house and pick up the keys to the cabin anytime I want to and I’m going to do that because I thought while I was in Colorado I might try out some of that good stuff up there if you know what I mean LOL, I’ve never had any of that really really good stuff before.

Let me know about when would be a good day for you I could probably get things wrapped up here and be in Colorado in about 4 days and maybe 3-4 days later meet you in Butte with cash in hand.

Thanks and have a good evening.
_______________________________________

Tanya = Hi,
Please tell me if you have received the invoice from eBay because they contacted me and informed that the invoice was sent you. If you have received the invoice please tell me if you are able to make the payment today to start the shipping in this tonight. I wait your response asap. Sometimes I receive the messages from eBay in my Spam mail folder; maybe you should check yours as well. Get back to me once you receive it. Thank you and have a nice day.
_____________________________________

ME =  Didn’t you get my last email Tonya? One of my friends offered to let me go stay in his cabin for a week and I never really even considered it but I will never have another opportunity like this to travel and see such beautiful places as Colorado and Montana and everything in between.

I’ve never been out of Texas except to Louisiana few times and before I have to go back to work I’ve been planning on taking a short vacation but I think I could wait long enough to take a 2-3 week vacation probably.

Since we are both in grief I understand that saving the cost of shipping would help you a lot financially because things or so messed up after family members die.

I’m still going through extreme pain and have been considering suicide a lot lately because unless I can lower my monthly cost of living I do not want to live anymore, but finding an RV at this price and having the opportunity to travel and see so many things makes me want to live at least a little while longer.

Me and my eight month old lab would have a great time and maybe I could even talk a girl I am interested in into going with me. That would probably help me out with her and be another thing that would make my life livable again.

Please let me know a day and time that would be good to meet you in Butte, or maybe we could meet halfway between there and Colorado in maybe five or six days.

Thank you so much for bringing a ray of sunshine into my life during this terrible terrible time in my life. You might have just saved my life, at least for a few years.

Tanya = Hi, read the invoice….you have it all there. if you need further clarification or info please call eBay payments support, you have the number on your invoice, they can explain better. If you are interested in buying the trailer have to tell you that this is the only way I can close this deal at this point.
you need to confirm payment to eBay of course
call them: (860) 506-5084

Thank you
___________________________________________

ME = I am starting to get a bad feeling about this Tonya.

I told you getting this RV would be a big blessing and being able to travel and take my friend up on his offer would be a very very big blessing to me and it might make me want to live again, at least for a while until the suffering becomes overwhelming again.

Because of your loss I thought you would be sympathetic to my loss and you would want me to be able to take my buddy up on his offer and travel a little bit and see the country. I had already thought perhaps I could make some memories that would make me want to live until God takes me out of this world. I even prayed that he would bless you and your daughter so much for blessing me so much.

I’m going to call that number and if this seems to be a scam I’m going to go ahead and shoot myself because my mother got scammed in the middle of when I was taking care of her because she had dementia, and if she had not been scammed I would have about $30,000 in my pocket right now and would want to live at least until that money was gone.

If you don’t hear back from me about it, a yes or no whether I will take the deal or not after calling the number, well then I guess I will have decided to go ahead and end my suffering.

I don’t really know I’m going to have to pray about this again Tonya.

Well I don’t mean to accuse you of something you’re not it’s just things are not adding up. Please call me as soon as possible so we can work this out.

Before I had to go out on disability, after my car wreck, and my first major bipolar episode due to my traumatic brain injury, I was a computer college graduate with a masters degree in computer science engineering making about $200,000 a year. And if your computer is not behind a very good firewall and a highly secure governmental level VPN I will be able to hunt you down, and one of us is going down and probably both of us because I do not want to go to prison.

And yes I will spend my last $7,000 to find you because evil people need to be eliminated from the gene pool.

If you’re not one of them you have nothing to worry about but if you are we will both be appearing before the Judgment seat of God pretty quickly.

Call me back at 281-***-**** right now or I’m going to start doing the research on you and your computer or Network

Tanya = Hi, have you talked with eBay?

Thank you
______________________________________

ME = Say you’re prayers bitch or dude or whatever you are, even if I have to go half way across the world I am going to hunt you down and take vengeance on behalf of my dead mom and dear old man friend who both got scammed.

You need to be sent before the judgment seat of God as soon as possible.

At least now I have a goal that will keep me wanting to live until I find you.

When I just prayed to God he said your time is up and he wants me to do this mission for him, and that I can get eternal rewards for hunting you down and taking you out, you disgusting peace of shit.

Pinging your IP is my first step. If you’re in the country I will find you within a week, 2 weeks if you’re on another continent and within a month no matter even if you life on the other side of the world.

You better find Jesus really quickly.

AS YOU CAN SEE “TANYA” IS NOT TANYA and “she” did not care a single bit if she would have caused me to kill myself or not, that is why these people are super-cruel and heartless, so please BEWARE OF SCAMS ON CRAIGSLIST selling “decent RV’s at a really good price”.

As the cliche goes, if something seems to be too good to be true, it most probably is not true.

Be careful because these assholes do this full time and they are good at what they do.

PS, I did not respond to the scammer again because if I played my part well enough to make them think I was really capable and crazy enough to hunt them down and kill them for being total pieces of shit, I did not want to ruin it but maybe leave them thinking in the back of their mind that they had better always be looking over their shoulder.

AND YES I DID TAKE THE TIME TO HAVE ALL THE RELEVANT ADS ON CRAIGSLIST FLAGGED AND REMOVED AS PROHIBITED. You should do the same if you find any and make it harder for them to scam people. One thing I noticed was that both of the RV’s I looked were listed several times and in several different Texas cities.
