Paypal £100, Right Answer! by budaatum: 2:29pm On Jul 29
This began in this thread. I advise it be checked out. Only a few have answered so far!


budaatum:
לֹא-תַעֲשֶׂה לְךָ פֶסֶל, וְכָל-תְּמוּנָה

The above is what we read the Finger of God (FoG) wrote, and as FoG didn't personally write much of Scripture, I'd be inclined to seriously consider it more than what Jesus personally wrote and definitely more than Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel or Paul and what is written in the Gospels even except they all proceed out of the Mouth of God and bread alone malnourishes.

Imagine the wealth in a vault you put a pound every month you lived. Intellect is wealth stored in a vault moths can't get at, and as it grows one would know no mountain is high enough in all the world to see the whole world so you'd not go about creating graven images of God with your puny intellect as if it was watching from high on a mountain.

Those who store wealth in moth proof vaults from birth as suggested do not use their stored up wealth to create graven images because they and their intellect serve the Lord.

Here's a trick question for everyone. How much would be in a vault of a 40 year old who put in a pound every month they lived?

Paypal £100 for right answer.

That was my budget, but I've tapped a few friends and one of them has doubled it to 2k, so tell everyone.

Wait Wait, Budaatum is a lady? Orisirisi!!!

The question asked is tricky. But let me try.

Firstly, the Hebrew statement up there mean 'no sculpture, no picture'. And you mentioned that Jesus, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel or Paul wrote about it. Everything they did wrote is an inspiration of God, as feasting on bread alone is tantamount to been malnourished. That is, even if they feed, they eat nothing. Even when they feel like fed, they are starved.

Isaiah 44:9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed

The bible verse above justified your statement in the OP that and as it grows one would know no mountain is high enough in all the world to see the whole world so you'd not go about creating graven images of God

Therefore, even if the pound is stored from birth, it amounts to foolishness before the Most High.

Most importantly, there is a saying that a fool at 40 is a fool forever. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God.

Job 5:13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.


That verse summed it up. It shows that every pound stored since birth by a 40yrs old man amounts to nothing. Even when he can store more than 10,000pounds, it amounts to nothing. More like eating bread and been starved.

The only substance that can satisfy a man is not is own stored pound of intelligence, but wisdom from God. For a property of Man is will perish but that of God will remain ever and ever. Solomon while been wise still asked for God's guidance in judgment, a wisdom from God to lead his people.

Proverbs 2:6-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
6. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
7. He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice,
8. And preserves the way of His saints.



Budaatum, the answer to the question that how much would be in the vault of a 40yrs old that saved a pound each month since birth, with the premises of your illustration which review the answer isn't mathematical, is ZERO/LOAD OF FOOLISHNESS.

Re: Paypal £100, Right Answer! by LoJ: 9:49am On Jul 30
The question refers to the saying of Jesus:

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth. and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,

According to Matthew.

In that regard, 480 pounds are accumulated in the vault in absolute value from an earthly perspective. But the best and most secure vault is subject to inflation, crisis, stealing and other issues.

Therefore the real eternal value of the treasure is from 0 to negative. He took value from his intelligence and deposited it on earth thereby losing value.

@budaatum I am waiting for my 2k pounds I know where I shall lay it up.

Well let me give it another try.


God infinitely exist on it own. But a lot of people out there, with their numerous thoughts and intelligence, create a God that fit into their idea, scope and worldview. While on the alternate, God created man in his own image. With the natural thoughts and intelligence, Man tries to picture or create an image of God which is forbidden.

Man tries to know God. And they attempted this through their thoughts. But has their thoughts provided them the through nature of God? Nope
Isaiah 55:8-9
"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Romans 11:33-35
33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”
35 “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”


Decrypting your own statement, 'as it grows one would know no mountain is high enough in all the world to see the whole world so you'd not go about creating graven images of God', it implies that the intelligence of Man cannot depict the Original nature of God

Job 11:7
"Can you discover the depths of God? Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?


All the intelligence of Man can be likened to a bread which does not amount to God's wisdom. Bread alone doesn't bring satisfaction. Just like bread, human intelligence also can be eaten by moth and completely destroyed.

I will use the story of men who tried to seek God by building a tower into heavens. Their effort then was destroyed because God cannot be known with canal thought and natural intelligence. In today's world, people subscribe to religion, societies, circles and groups in order to understand the nature of God. These efforts are mostly through the prism of Man's knowledge about God. Such thoughts only create an descriptive image of God. On this path, they can easily go astray and lose focus.
1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned


The bible passage has sealed it.

Thou shall not carve a image of God unto yourself. The Hebrew words up there mean 'no sculpture, no picture'. But this is what majority of people out there does. They try to capture the nature of God through their own intelligence/wisdom which amounts to foolishness, and sin, and total destruction.

Job 5:13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.

That verse summed it up. It shows that every pound stored since birth by a 40yrs old man amounts to nothing. Even when he can store more than 10,000pounds, it amounts to nothing. More like eating bread and been starved.

To know God, one does not need to subscribe to a religion or group. One does not need thought of men that can be eaten by moth (sin). One only need to the spiritually inclined

1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Romans 12:2
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

1 John 3:6
6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.


The only thing a human intelligence could provide us is a graven image of God which is sin and leads to destruction. Man has to be guided through the spirit of God, not human intelligence of oneself or that of guru/pastor/Imam.

Answer to your question again, the value of pound of intelligence, store on monthly basis over 40yrs, is tantamount to ZERO OR NEGATIVE. As human intelligence creates nothingness or a graven image of God which is sin.

Re: Paypal £100, Right Answer! by JeromeBlack: 2:59pm On Jul 30
The answer is zero because the 40 year old is starting it from the current month. So when he is 50, the vault will have 12 pounds.


Or if he starts paying at the beginning of the month, the answer I 1 pound (£1).


However, since it is a month lived and no time frame has been given, it should be zero pounds

Re: Paypal £100, Right Answer! by Amujale(m): 3:30pm On Jul 30
Although its a hyperthetical question, a 40 year old couldnt possibly put away a pound for every month they had lived, that would have to be someone else.

12 × 40 - 1

£480 - 1(first month)

£479

And again, if you look at it from a philosophical perspective, then the 40 year old would have just a pound saved in the vault.

£0 + £1

As the first pound from the point of the person's descision to save.
