Evee Gayle Clobes death after 6 vaccines at 6 months of age, Neurotoxin Aluminum in vaccines and food ingested by infants, Cumulative effect causing problems?

Evee Gayle Clobes death after 6 vaccines at 6 months of age, Neurotoxin Aluminum in vaccines and food ingested by infants, Cumulative effect causing problems?

“Aluminum, used as a adjuvant in many vaccines, is a neurotoxin. Why are we injecting it in tiny babies?”…Citizen Wells

“Mercury is a highly toxic element; there is no known safe level of exposure. Ideally, neither children nor adults should have any mercury in their bodies because it provides no physiological benefit.”…National Institute of Health

“”You’re a traitor!” yelled the boy. “You’re a thought criminal!””…George Orwell, “1984”

 

This is difficult to write.

My heart goes out to the Clobes Family.

God bless.

Aluminum is a neurotoxin, is in vaccines and foods that infants ingest.

Mother’s food, breast milk and infant formulas and other products ingested in utero and after birth.

Why are we bombarding small bodies with so many vaccines at one time and not testing for levels of toxicity?

This is not only irresponsible but in my opinion criminal on the part of the medical community.

The mother, Catie Clobes, relates her story.

“On March 1, 2019, Catie Clobes tragically lost her six and half month old daughter, Evee, a day and a half after receiving six vaccines at her six month doctor’s visit. Like many parents who experience a devastating unexpected loss of their healthy infant, Catie reached out in our Stop Mandatory Vaccination FaceBook group in search of answers on adverse complications post vaccination. Catie shares her heartbreaking pain in her story below with additional details in the Q&A that follows.”

“Q&A with Catie:

Q: Which vaccines did your daughter receive at her 6 month visit?
Catie: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Acellular Pertussis) Hepatitis BIPV(Polio), and PCV-13 (Pneumococcal).

Q: What date did she receive her vaccines?
Catie: 2/27/2019

Q: What kind of information did you receive from the doctor prior to Evee receiving the vaccines? Vaccine information sheet (VIS), package insert, other information? Did you receive full informed consent about the full risks and benefits?
Catie: I don’t recall receiving anything. Something could have been with her after-visit summary, I’m not sure. I don’t recall seeing anything. The doctor only asked if Evee was receiving her vaccinations and I said yes and she said good.

Q: Can you describe more in detail about what happened?
Catie: Evee was put to bed at 9 p.m. on 2/28/19. That whole day she was giggling as usual, eating solid foods, nursing just fine, no temperature, no other signs or symptoms that I could remember. Nothing out of the ordinary. She fell asleep in my arms before I laid her down, and when I did lay her down she didn’t wake up which she usually does. Almost every other night I lay down and go to sleep with her, but I stayed up to watch basketball. I went to bed around 11 p.m. and she was still alive, in her deep sleep and breathing. I kissed her and went to sleep. I woke up to go to the bathroom the next morning, 3/1/19, around 7 a.m., and I started singing her name as I came back in. I thought she was still sleeping hard. She was on her back, the same position that I left her in the night before. I picked rolled her face over and saw that she was passed. Ambulance was called and she was pronounced dead at the Buffalo Hospital. Preliminary autopsy has showed nothing, no abnormalities, no visible reason as to why she passed.

Q: Were there any warnings or symptoms that indicated she was having an adverse reaction?
Catie: Well maybe that she was so tired, that she was sleeping so hard when I laid her down and when I went to bed. There have been a few other nights like that though. Other than that, no.

Q: Can you explain if she was given any medication after her vaccines?
Catie: No.

Q: Was she vaccinated prior to this 6 month old visit? And if so, what vaccines on which dates did she receive (including at birth)? Have you ever noticed any adverse reactions?
Catie: She received a couple vaccinations at birth. Those don’t show in the immunization record. I’m not sure why. I believe it was Hep B when she was born. Her 10/31/18 two month visit and 12/17/18 four month visit she received vaccinations, see the immunization record for which ones. [2 month visit vaccines: Rotavirus, PCV-13, IPV, Hep. B, HIB, and DTaP and at the 4 month visit, she also received: Rotavirus, PCV-13, IPV, Hep. B, HIB, and DTaP]”

“Q: What do you feel caused or contributed to Evee’s passing?
Catie: I want to make clear that I can’t be 100% certain, without proof, that this is true, but I have a feeling the vaccinations contributed to her death which is why I have shared her story, made the VAERS report, and am working with a lawyer.”

From Science Daily.

“While aluminum is a known neurotoxin and occupational exposure to aluminum has been implicated in neurological disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, this finding is believed to be the first record of a direct link between Alzheimer’s disease and elevated brain aluminum following occupational exposure to the metal.”

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140212093300.htm

From the National Institutes of Health.

“Infants’ exposure to aluminum from vaccines and breast milk during the first 6 months.”

“The success of vaccination programs in reducing and eliminating infectious diseases has contributed to an ever-increasing number of vaccines given at earlier ages (newborns and infants). Exposure to low levels of environmental toxic substances (including metals) at an early age raises plausible concerns over increasingly lower neuro-cognitive rates. Current immunization schedules with vaccines containing aluminum (as adjuvant) are given to infants, but thimerosal (as preservative) is found mostly in vaccines used in non-industrialized countries. Exclusively, breastfed infants (in Brazil) receiving a full recommended schedule of immunizations showed an exceedingly high exposure of Al (225 to 1750 μg per dose) when compared with estimated levels absorbed from breast milk (2.0 μg). This study does not dispute the safety of vaccines but reinforces the need to study long-term effects of early exposure to neuro-toxic substances on the developing brain. Pragmatic vaccine safety needs to embrace conventional toxicology, addressing especial characteristics of unborn fetuses, neonates and infants exposed to low levels of aluminum, and ethylmercury traditionally considered innocuous to the central nervous system.”

Weasel Mueller use of “does not exonerate him” improper in legal context, Exonerate has exact legal meaning, Throwing bone to weasel fake news media?

“Democrat mantra: The end justifies the means.”…Citizen Wells

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Speaking of weasel fake news media….

From the NY Times.

“Mueller Finds No Trump-Russia Conspiracy, but Stops Short of Exonerating President on Obstruction”

“Mr. Mueller’s team drew no conclusions about whether Mr. Trump illegally obstructed justice, Mr. Barr said, so he made his own decision. The attorney general and his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, determined that the special counsel’s investigators had insufficient evidence to establish that the president committed that offense.

He cautioned, however, that Mr. Mueller’s report states that “while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him” on the obstruction of justice issue.”

Read more:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/24/us/politics/mueller-report-summary.html

I suppose I should have led off with weasel fake news NBC. They interrupted the coverage of the golf tournament with breaking news about the Barr letter.

They took the “bone” Mueller provided (exonerate) and chewed excessively on it.

As soon as I heard this, I knew the Orwellian intent.

From the Barr letter to the the House and Senate Judiciary Committees:

“After making a thorough factual investigation into these matters, the Special Counsel considered whether to evaluate the conduct under Department standards governing prosecution and declination decisions but
ultimately determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment. The Special Counsel therefore did not draw a conclusion one way or the other as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction. Instead, for each of the relevant actions investigated, the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as
difficult issues of law and fact concerning whether the President’s actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction. The Special Counsel states that “while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/5779688/AG-March-24-2019-Letter-to-House-and-Senate.pdf

This is a legal document, condensed from another legal document produced by Mueller.

Exonerate has a special legal meaning.

From Black’s Law Dictionary:

“To lift, remove the stain of being called out for blame, liability, or punishment. It is more that just freeing an accused person of the responsibility for a criminal or otherwise illegal or wrongful act. It is publicly stating that this accused should never have been accused in the first place. Refer to acquit and exculpate.”

From US Legal:

“Exoneration refers to a court order that discharges a person from liability. In criminal context the term exonerate refers to a state where a person convicted of a crime is later proved to be innocent. Exoneration may lead to controversies when the person exonerated was convicted for death penalty. The term exoneration is also referred in the context of surety bail bonds. In this case, a judge may order a bond exonerated, in such cases the clerk of the court time, stamps the original bail bond power and indicates exonerated as the judicial order.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS NEVER ACCUSED OF OR CONVICTED OF A CRIME!

The end justifies the means.

The narrative continues.

I refer you to Orwell.

Thrivent Ethisphere “ethics recognition”  2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies, One of best awards money can buy?, Chris MacDonald: take awards “with a grain of salt.”

Thrivent Ethisphere “ethics recognition”  2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies, One of best awards money can buy?, Chris MacDonald: take awards “with a grain of salt.”

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”… “Hamlet”, William Shakespeare

“the awarding of an ethics accolade to a company that gives you money just doesn’t pass the smell test.”…LA Times October 27, 2014

“The secret of life is honesty, and fair
dealing. If you can fake that you’ve got it made.”…Groucho Marx

 

If your company is ethical, you should not have to advertise it. Customers, employees and those you deal with will know.

From Thrivent February 26, 2019.

“THRIVENT NAMED ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ETHICAL COMPANIES® BY ETHISPHERE FOR THE 8TH TIME”

“Thrivent, a not-for-profit membership organization that helps members be wise with money and live generously, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies.

Thrivent has been recognized eight years in a row and is one of only five honorees in the financial services industry.

In 2019, 128 honorees were recognized spanning 21 countries and 50 industries. The 13th class of honorees profoundly illustrates how companies continue to be the driving force for improving communities, building capable and empowered workforces, and fostering corporate cultures focused on ethics and a strong sense of purpose.

“We’re proud to once again be named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” said Terry Rasmussen, president and CEO of Thrivent. “At Thrivent, we are purposeful and intentional about following ethical business practices and ensuring our actions reflect commitment, collaboration and care. Setting this high standard helps us fulfill our mission of serving more Christians on their wise with money journeys.”

Said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich: “Today, employees, investors and stakeholders are putting their greatest trust in companies to take leadership on societal issues. Companies that take the long view with a purpose-based strategy are proven to not only outperform but last. I congratulate everyone at Thrivent for earning this recognition.”

Methodology & Scoring
The World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.”

Why does Thrivent go to such lengths to tout this award?

Is Thrivent buying this award?

Does the award really mean anything?

Consider the following:

“For the last seven years, Thrivent has been honored to be named a World’s Most Ethical Company,” said Brad Hewitt, CEO of Thrivent. “As we serve our members and carry out what it means to be an ethical company through our actions and business practices, we are pleased to be recognized as leaders in setting a standard that we hope will continue to develop within the business community.”

_____

“The Ethisphere Insitute, which describes itself as “a leading international think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability,” is actually a for-profit company. The institute also lends itself credibility with an “advisory panel” of ethicists, yet several former members say they’ve had little if anything to do with it. Finally, the institute and an affiliated company sell services to and collect fees from some of the same companies Ethisphere extols.”

“The scoring is based mostly on information provided by the companies themselves, and Ethisphere says its questionnaire should take 30 to 40 minutes to complete. Ethisphere then asks companies for documentation to support survey answers and reviews other sources, such as news articles, court records, and Consumer Reports. Ethisphere says it reviewed more than 10,000 corporations for last year’s list.

Brigham acknowledges that the system is imperfect. “Could they be lying to us?” he says. “Sure, they could. … Over time, we’re going to have to figure out how to verify that. And no one is going to pay us to verify it, and if we try to charge them to verify it, we’re going to have reporters like you make it sound like we’re getting paid off.”

Ethisphere says its methodology was developed with the help of a panel of independent experts. But as I dialed up half a dozen of the 20 committee members, I found only one (George Ash) who said he actually contributed to shaping the methodology. Others said they made a suggestion that wasn’t heeded (Thomas Donaldson), or didn’t seriously analyze the methodology (Patrick Barwise, John Dienhart, Chris MacDonald), or didn’t know they were on the panel (Karen Paul). Ethisphere says that it assumed panel members who didn’t respond to its queries simply agreed with the methodology and that each member explicitly agreed to be on the panel. Since my inquiries, Ethisphere has named a new, smaller panel, and none of the people I spoke to are still on it.”

“It’s tempting, of course, to dismiss all this as just corporate window-dressing, and in fact Canadian ethicist Chris MacDonald, who until recently was on Ethisphere’s advisory panel, warned me to take such awards “with a grain of salt.””

_____

“Apparently, Blue Shield and Ethisphere haven’t quite grasped that the appearance of a conflict can be just as troubling as an actual conflict.

Nor do they seem to understand that the awarding of an ethics accolade to a company that gives you money just doesn’t pass the smell test.

Hey, remember when things like ethics mattered?

Blue Shield doesn’t. Neither does the Ethisphere Institute.”

I delivered the Greensboro News Record as a youth.

Since its demise as a proper news reporting entity has already occurred, I will celebrate its eventual closing when it happens for what it has become. A mouthpiece for the Democrat Party.

From the Greensboro News Record Opinion column February 28, 2019.

“A judge’s ruling last week that nullifies two amendments to the N.C. Constitution was the wrong solution to the right problems. And it should be overturned on appeal.

One amendment requires voter ID at the ballot; the other permanently lowers the cap on state income tax rates from 10 percent to 7 percent. Both were ill-conceived and unnecessary.

But the voters approved both provisions on a statewide ballot by solid margins. The voter ID amendment passed with 55.6 percent of voters approving. The new cap on state income tax rates passed with 57 percent of the vote. Both should stand unless the amendments themselves fail legal challenges.

The state NAACP sued over the amendments, and Wake County Superior Court Judge Bryan Collins ruled in its favor. Collins wrote in his decision that the state legislature “is so gerrymandered that its members don’t truly represent the people of the state and thus should never have proposed constitutional amendments in the first place.””

“Make no mistake, the voter ID amendment was ginned up by phony claims of voter fraud. It disenfranchises the poor and minorities. And yes, the income tax rate amendment is shortsighted, tying the state’s hands in ways that could prevent it from meeting future needs that require public investment. Both still may be overturned for legitimate reasons.

But the referendum on the amendments in November was not gerrymandered. Every eligible voter had an opportunity to weigh in, regardless of party or district. And the yeas prevailed.

“These amendments were placed on the ballot and passed by an overwhelming majority of North Carolinians,” N.C. GOP Chairman Robin Hayes said in a written statement. “This unprecedented and absurd ruling by a liberal judge is the very definition of judicial activism.”

We don’t agree with Hayes on much. But in this case, he’s right.

The state GOP plans to appeal, and the case ultimately could reach the state Supreme Court, where we hope the voters’ desires will carry more weight.”

It is a shame that the Greensboro News Record, the paper I delivered as a youth, is so in bed with the Democrat Party that it cannot report the truth without injecting the party line.

“The state GOP plans to appeal, and the case ultimately could reach the state Supreme Court, where we hope the voters’ desires will carry more weight.”

That just had to put the following party lines (lies) in:

  1. “the voter ID amendment was ginned up by phony claims of voter fraud.”
  2. “It disenfranchises the poor and minorities.”

Voter ID disenfranchises no one! It treats everyone the same.

Phony claims of voter fraud?

“From the Greensboro News Record December 3, 2016.

“MCCRORY ASKS SBI TO LOOK INTO POTENTIAL VOTER FRAUD

The State Board of Elections dismissed a complaint originating from a rural North Carolina county that could have prevented scores of ballots from being counted in close races for governor and auditor.

The board voted 3-2 on Saturday to reject the protest from a Bladen County candidate, who with assistance from Republican Gov. Pat McCrory’s campaign, alleged workers for a political committee that received Democratic funds fraudulently filled out absentee ballots.

Lawyers pushing the complaint suggested the board could throw out as many as 419 mail-in absentee ballots. They said evidence showed that a losing write-in candidate for soil and water conservation district supervisor showed up on nearly 170 ballots and may have originated from only seven people. The lawyers said none of those ballots should be tallied for any races.”

“”We have an obligation to ensure that every vote is counted accurately and that our elections process is conducted legally,” said McCrory. “Any verified instance of voter fraud or other illegal activity should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.””

Once again the fake news media, politicians and other agenda driven entities have lied about something President Trump has said.

President Trump, since he began running for president and consistently afterwards has spoken about the emergency, the crisis regarding our nation’s security and securing our borders.

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN SPOKEN OF AS AN EMERGENCY!

And it clearly is.

From the fake news Washington Post.

“The idea that the situation at the border is truly a “national emergency” already strained credulity. And at Friday’s news conference, President Trump might have just erased any doubt about his true motivation.

In the Rose Garden, Trump issued the national emergency declaration he has been threatening for more than a month. In the process, he basically admitted he doesn’t even really see the situation at the border as an emergency.

The key quote came when the Q&A portion started. Trump was challenged by NBC’s Peter Alexander on why he couldn’t bend Congress to his will — as he previously said a president should be able to do — rather than take unilateral action.

“I didn’t need to do this,” Trump said. “But I’d rather do it much faster.”

Trump then blamed 2020 politics for Democrats not supporting wall and repeated: “I just want to do it faster.”

If it’s truly an emergency, how can you say you didn’t need to declare an emergency? Trump basically admitted that this was a choice for him — a matter of expediency, quite literally — and not something required by events on the ground.”

From the real news, Citizen Wells News.

“Trump “I didn’t need to do this” spoken in context of election and building the wall, He didn’t need to do to get reelected, Faster for nation’s security

President Trump, during his question and answer session following his February 15, 2019 press conference on funding for the border wall, stated the following:

“In fact, the primary fight was on the wall.  Everything else, we have so much, as I said, I don’t know what to do with it we have so much money.  But on the wall, they skimped.

So I did — I was successful, in that sense, but I want to do it faster.  I could do the wall over a longer period of time.  I didn’t need to do this.  But I’d rather do it much faster.  And I don’t have to do it for the election.  I’ve already done a lot of wall, for the election — 2020.  And the only reason we’re up here talking about this is because of the election, because they want to try and win an election, which it looks like they’re not going to be able to do.  And this is one of the ways they think they can possibly win, is by obstruction and a lot of other nonsense.”

“I didn’t need to do this” was spoken in the context of the 2020 election.

He did not need to do it for his benefit.

President Trump said at the end of his speech:

“So the order is signed.  And I’ll sign the final papers as soon as I get into the Oval Office.  And we will have a national emergency, and then we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the Ninth Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there.  And we will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling.  And then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully we’ll get a fair shake.  And we’ll win in the Supreme Court, just like the ban.  They sued us in the Ninth Circuit, and we lost, and then we lost in the appellate division, and then we went to the Supreme Court, and we won.”

“The probably easiest one to win is on declaring a national emergency, because we’re declaring it for virtual invasion purposes: drugs, traffickers, and gangs.  And one of the things, just to finish: We have removed thousands of MS-13 gang monsters.  Thousands.  They’re out of this country.  We take them out by the thousands.  And they are monsters.”

Transcript:

From a recent Thrivent employment ad for a Claims Operations Manager:

“You don’t need to be Christian to join our team. You do need the passion to guide our members on their Wise With Money Journey”

THAT EXPLAINS MUCH.

Thrivent portrays their commitment to “core Christian values.” in the following ways:

“CEO Brad Hewitt told the 1,600 members at the regional meeting at the Henry Ford Museum that while Thrivent traces its corporate roots to the turn of the 20th century, its history goes back to the 16th century and the founder of Protestant Christianity, Martin Luther.

Luther drafted a document in 1523 called the “Fraternal Agreement on the Common Chest of the Entire Assembly at Leisnig,” which established rules about pooling resources to help people in need.

“The phrase he used consistently was, ‘This is done for the honor of God and the love of fellow Christians,’” Hewitt said, adding that Thrivent was formed by Lutheran immigrants for the same basic purpose.”

Thrivent’s Christian Calling

“Thrivent’s Lutheran heritage of answering God’s call has led to a strong membership-owned organization that now welcomes Christians seeking to live out their faith.

Fraternal benefit societies have a common bond among members. Thrivent’s common bond is Christianity. We embrace the core Christian beliefs as articulated in the Apostles’ Creed”

“Thrivent contends that its commitment to individual arbitration is “important to the membership because it reflects Thrivent’s Christian Common Bond, helps preserve members’ fraternal relationships, and avoids protracted and adversarial litigation that could undermine Thrivent’s core mission.””

It is impossible for non Christians to treat others with values and actions that can only emanate from someone who is a Christian.

Therefore, Thrivent has misrepresented their positions.

Martin Luther rejected the working (or buying) your way into heaven and grace through one’s works and efforts that had evolved in the Roman Catholic Church.

Instead, he explained that good works and love for one’s neighbor are a natural product of one’s faith and love for and obedience to God.

Martin Luther on Christian life and vocations.

From “Working for Our Neighbor”:

“For Martin Luther, vocation is nothing less than the locus of the Christian life. God works in and through vocation, but he does so by calling human beings to work in their vocations. In Jesus Christ, who bore our sins and gives us new life in his resurrection, God saves us for eternal life. But in the meantime he places us in our temporal life where we grow in faith and holiness. In our various callings—as spouse, parent, church member, citizen, and worker—we are to live out our faith.”

“Loving and Serving Our Neighbors
God does not need our good works, Luther said, but our neighbor does (Wingren, Luther on Vocation, 10). Our relationship with God is based completely on his work for us in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ. Justification by faith completely excludes any kind of dependence on our good works for our salvation. We come before God clothed not in our own works or merits, but solely in the works and merits of Christ, which are imputed to us. But having been justified by faith, we are sent by God back into the world, into our vocations, to love and serve our neighbors.”

“The economic vocations give us many neighbors whom we are to love and serve: customers, to be sure”

“Vocation Counters Our Materialism
Vocation counters the materialism and self-centeredness of economic pursuits by giving them a new meaning and a new orientation. Similarly, vocation also transforms other social relationships, such as the nature of authority.”

Martin Luther on Vocations and ethics.

” Luther’s view of justification turned this ethical system on its head and placed Christian ethics into two realms of life in God’s world. In the divine realm, or right-hand rule of God, Christian righteousness is something that proceeds from faith alone and is therefore impossible apart from faith. No matter how good a person is in terms of ethical behavior (what the Lutheran reformers call human righteousness), such a person has no Christian righteousness without faith in Christ, from which Christian righteousness blooms as fruit from a good tree.”

Martin Luther Christ centric approach to ethics:

““Gifted by him, Christ’s holy people live their lives enveloped in Christ’s gifts and forgiveness, serving their neighbor in word and deed. Yet there are always temptations in the world that seek to diminish Jesus. Luther warns, “Therefore Satan continually mounts a new battle against us” (WA 40 I: 318, 12; AE 26: 193).23 The devil “often suggests a false Christ to me” (WA 40 I: 321, 32-33; AE 26: 196).24 Since Christians are powerless before Satan, their daily life of vocation is a daily return to baptism.

Luther presents the life of Christians in their daily callings as a life that is lived within the forgiveness of sins. Ethics may not be detached from the body and blood of Jesus that the baptized receive. This is where the forgiveness is bestowed (WA 18: 203, 39-204, 9; AE 40: 214). Bodied together and blooded together, the communicants are enlivened to serve one another in word and deed, not only in the church but in the world.””

From Martin Luther’s Large Catechism:

“If, then, it be asked: How do you understand the Second Commandment, or what is meant by taking in vain, or misusing God’s name? answer briefly thus: It is misusing God’s name when we call upon the Lord God no matter in what way, for purposes of falsehood or wrong of any kind. Therefore this commandment enjoins this much, that God’s name must not be appealed to falsely, or taken upon the lips while the heart knows well enough, or should know, differently; as among those who take oaths in court, where one side lies against the other. For God’s name cannot be misused worse than for the support of falsehood and deceit.”
“Therefore let every one know that it is his duty, at the risk of God’s
displeasure, not only to do no injury to his neighbor, nor to deprive
him of gain, nor to perpetrate any act of unfaithfulness or malice in
any bargain or trade, but faithfully to preserve his property for him,
to secure and promote his advantage, especially when one accepts money, wages, and one’s livelihood for such service.”
“And yet we pretend to be godly, know how to adorn ourselves most finely and conceal our rascality, resort to and invent adroit devices and deceitful artifices (such as now are daily most ingeniously contrived) as though they were derived from the law codes; yea, we even dare impertinently to refer to it, and boast of it, and will not have it called rascality, but shrewdness and caution. In this lawyers and jurists assist, who twist and stretch the law to suit it to their cause, stress words and use them for a subterfuge, irrespective of equity or their neighbor’s necessity. And, in short, whoever is the most expert and cunning in these affairs finds most help in law, as they themselves say: Vigilantibus iura subveniunt [that is, The laws favor the watchful].”

From Kentucky.com.

“A financial advisor in Western Kentucky used lies and false paperwork to steal $400,000 from clients, a federal grand jury has charged.

The grand jury indicted Jerry Wayne Simpson on three counts of wire fraud, a charge punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Simpson was a licensed agent for Thrivent Investment Management Inc., in Madisonville, according to the indictment. He allegedly took money from clients between March 2016 and October 2017.

In one case, Simpson allegedly forged a clients’ name on paperwork requesting to have money withdrawn from the person’s annuities. Simpson withdrew about $248,000 from the victim’s accounts and had it deposited in his personal bank account, the indictment charged.

In another case, Simpson falsely told a widow that her late husband had taken out a loan against his life insurance policy and gave her a cashier’s check for $54,769 when the policy actually was worth $82,000, the indictment said.

Simpson allegedly kept the rest of the money.”
