And all the people who pay tax, and then their tax money will be used for such charitable, humane purposes. (Oh, yes.) They also get a lot, a lot of Heaven’s blessing. (Ah, yes.) To save a life is incredible blessing. (Yes, yes.) Almost like limitless, then that will rescue your soul also.
I think 99.9 percent of women would never want to abort a child in their body. (Yes, understand.) She can give it to the government orphanage. (Yes.) Or maybe even an NGO (non-governmental organization) will run it for the government. The government would just back them up. (Oh, OK. Good idea.) Many volunteers would want to do it also. (Yes.)
“Media Report SBS Dateline May 15, 2013:
Pastor Lee Jong Rak (m): Oh! Baby, baby! Baby box, baby box.
Narrator (m): It’s a moment Pastor Lee Jong-rak has experienced many times. The arrival of a tiny bundle. A newborn left in his purpose-built baby box. In South Korea, hundreds of unwanted babies are abandoned every year.
Pastor Lee Jong Rak (m): ‘If you can’t raise your baby because he or she was born with a deformity, or you’re a single mother, don’t leave your baby to die. Open the box below and place your baby inside.’ When we open the door there and see the mom, we say, ‘Let’s chat for a minute.’ So, we try to counsel them, and for the moms who can raise the child, we return them to their moms, who get support from us, so they can raise them. If that can’t happen, we send them to the orphanage. The baby will be taken to the children’s hospital to be medically examined. If the baby’s healthy, it won’t be sent to an adoption agency at once, it’ll be sent to the orphanage. May God bless this baby’s future, and let her be protected, nurtured and healed in Your name. The baby has to leave soon, so I prayed for God’s blessing on her. I prayed for God’s guidance in her life and that she will grow to be great and distinguished in this world.”
They will take turns to come take care of the babies and sometimes if they just volunteer even, (Yes.) it might not even cost a lot. And even if it does, the government can afford it, and this is (A worthy cause.) a worthy reason to ask for a debt ceiling rise. And any government would accept it for humanitarian reasons, for patriotic reasons. (Yes.) So the woman and child will feel relaxed. (Yes, they have an option.) They have an option and they know they’re secure, that their government will not let them down. And will take care of their situation. (Yes, Master.) And then after she gives away the baby, she will know the name and all that, she could also register her name there. Who knows, one day they might want to find each other, when the situation is better? (Oh yes, many do look for their biological parents.) And the mother, if she regretted it, she would never lose anything. She can come back and get her child. (Oh, yes.) Yes, so that saves a lot of heartache as well. (Yes, yes.) Because many women regret it (Yes.) and cry. And feeling very ashamed, very terrible for the sin that she has done. (Yes, so much guilt.) So much guilt as well and depression. That makes society not any happier. (No, no.) So it’s very simple just to do that. (Yes, Master.)
Why spend trillions for killing, and not spending some millions or billions just to save lives. (Yes.) That will be pleasing to Heavens and bring you a lot, a lot of merit, that will rescue yourself also, the day you die. (Oh, yes.) Whoever organizes all this. (Yes, Master.) And all the people who pay tax, and then their tax money will be used for such charitable, humane purposes. (Oh, yes.) They also get a lot, a lot of Heaven’s blessing. (Ah, yes.) To save a life is incredible blessing. (Yes, yes.) Almost like limitless, then that will rescue your soul also. You don’t have to go to hell. (And that money, yes they’re getting merit in that way, rather than losing merit by going the other way.) Yeah, losing merit and creating bad karma, and have to go to hell for killing. (Yes.) This is good. (Yes, Master.)
And who knows, one of them or two of them, or some of them will make it big. (Yes.) And they will in turn, return the favor, and give a donation to the orphanage or just be a good citizen in the world. (Yes, yes.) It’s a win-win for everybody. (For sure.) Because sometimes a woman, or any person, can run into some bad luck. Just temporarily and later they will get up. (Yes.) And then if somebody can take care of their kid like that, unconditionally, then they feel peace. And they can fight with the world to be someone, to make it in the society. (Yes, Master.) Because they are free to do it without being bogged down with the child that she cannot afford at that moment. Then one day they will find each other, and wow, if you see this reunion, you will feel like everything is worth it. (Oh, yes.) And the child feels so good when they do meet their parents. Yes. And then the mother can say, “It was a situation. I never wanted to leave you,” and all that. (Oh, yes.) And then they'll be happy, and the child can feel more confident, (Yes, yes.) feel like he or she is loved. (Yes.)
In the orphanage, they will lack nothing. At least they have food to eat, they have clothes to wear. They have a safe roof to sleep under. And then they have education. They have people to take care of them if they're sick and everything, so it's so safe. (Yes.) And they can grow in that atmosphere and then the school will explain to the children that the mother could not make it, that's all. She loves you. (Yes.) The day she gave you away, she cried, and she didn't want to, but she had to. You know life is not all that rosy. And everybody would be happy. (Yes, that would be wonderful.) Why kill? (Yes. It’s a perfect solution.) Yes, of course.
The government has money. Even if it doesn't have, many of the rich people in the country that you tax just reasonably, they will have a lot of money, they will give. (Yes.) If you can take in millions of refugees at one time, then you have enough money to take care of your own citizen children. (Yes.) You have to take care of your house, your own family first before you can be charitable to others. (Yes.) It is a sin to starve your children to give money to someone else. It's the same. (Yes, OK.) You don't cause somebody else suffering. (That's right.) Your children are also human beings. You have to take care of them also. They are right in front of you. (Yes.) And they’re your duty. So if you starve your children and go outside be a busybody, do some charity work while your children lack everything, then it's a sin. (OK. Yes, understand.) It's not merit at all. (Understand. Yes, Master.)
So, it's not difficult to take care of these children at all. (Yes.) It's good for the country, gives a good atmosphere, and everything will be blessed by Heaven and God. (Such a much more noble and worthy way to spend money to help the children.) Yes! And the taxpayers would not mind (No, not at all.) because they know it's for the worthy cause. Most people, they love children, even if it's not theirs, they would defend for the children if they have to. (Yes, Master.) Even if it's not their own children.
And many would be in the waiting list just to keep taking them into their arms, into their loving family, be a part of their own. (Yes.) See, like Angelina Jolie, she adopted so many, (Oh, yes.) and she's so happy. (Yes, and they’re happy.) With a man, without a man, they're so happy. They are like a prince and princess. (Yes.) They are treated better than people treat me. I wish I could be adopted like that. (Yes, Master.) (They become a big, happy family. Yes.) And Madonna. Madonna, the great singer? (Oh, yes. She adopted some.) She also adopted many. (Yes.) She adopted Black kids. Angelina Jolie, also the same. (Yes.) She doesn't just adopt white Americans or Europeans. She adopts whoever needs her. (Yes, yes.) Whomever she feels bonding with. So it’s doable.
Americans, many are rich. I saw on the news that probably Elon Musk, (Yes.) he probably would be the first trillionaire. (Oh, yes.) Not just billionaire. (Yes. I think he is like the top, the highest earner now.) Yeah, trillionaire, the first one ever. (Wow.) Good for him. But they do a lot of good also. (Yes.) It's not like they hoard it all by themselves. I mean, how much you can eat per day? (Yes, yes.) Even delicacies and all that, you can only eat so much and wear so many clothes. Even you change color every day. That’s all you need. (Yes.)
And they all do charity, like Bill Gates. And even (Mark) Zuckerberg, he also donates to some schools to do research or something. (Yes.) (I think Bill Gates he tried to develop the synthetic meat, and he’s trying to promote that because he invested a lot of research into that.) I saw that also. And (Jeff) Bezos, he also did charity. (Yes.) Even though not many people praise him, because sometimes they don’t want to. (Yes.) Warren Buffet. “Buffet” or “Buffet?” (Warren Buffet.) Buffet. Warren Buffet. I am always thinking it is a buffet. Do it yourself. (Yes.) Serve your own food. And many, many in the world, they all do big charity all the time. (Yes, yes.) And even if they don’t do it, there are many others who do.
You know normal Americans, they’re also very generous. (Yes.) They always chip in when it’s a good cause. There’re always GoFundMe activities around America all the time. (Yes.) Not just America, but England or everywhere. If they can afford it, they give. (Yes. I saw one.) They don’t have to give a lot. Everybody gives even one dollar, one million people give, then you have one million. (Yes, Master.)
Mostly, we also don’t give a lot. But, I cannot take care of the whole world. (Oh, yes. Of course.) I have to take care of my entourage also, and my business. (Yes, Master.) Make sure it stays afloat. (Understand.) To continue working. Otherwise, I would like to give more. It feels good when you give more. The more you give, the more you feel good. (Yes, Master.) It’s just I can’t always afford it. Also, it depends on how much they need. (Yes. And how much they deserve.) Not just deserve, but how much they need. (Yes.)
Yesterday, I read the news about India. India and Nepal have floods. (Yes.) And almost 200 people died and some are missing. But I didn’t know all about the situation. So I asked one of your brothers to send me the details. I told him we’ll send US$30,000 each for Nepal and India. But I thought it’s better I check out which one’s people have more needs. (Yes.) Then he sent me the details, and I saw the government of Nepal gives each family 1,000-something US dollars. That’s a lot for Nepal. (Yes. Wow.) And then, the Indian government gives each family 5,000-something US dollars! My God! (Wow.) They can live years from that or months at least, until they get back on their feet. (Yes.) That’s a lot for India and Nepal, because the standard of living there is very inexpensive. (Yes, yes.) And the standard compared to other countries is multiplied. You give US $1,000, it’s equivalent to sometimes even 30,000, 40,000, for that country. (Understand.)
I remember before, I was a householder, some Africa charity, they asked for you to give only one dollar, if you can. They did not want to ask more. If you can, you give more, of course. But even one dollar a month. (Can go a long way.) And then, of course, if everybody gives one dollar (Yes.) and for that kind of country, food is cheap, labor is cheap, housing, everything is cheaper. So for them it’s OK already if many people give just one dollar. (Yes.) Some people give more. I give a little bit more. I didn’t have much. I think five dollars, or something, instead of one dollar. And then I gave a big check. So I don’t have to give, like, every month, (OK.) something like that. But even if everybody gives a little bit, then it’s a lot. (Yes.)
And for some of those countries, the value of money even multiplies a lot. (For sure.) In India, you can live forever. Or in Mexico, even. They said you can live on US$15 per month (Wow.) in Mexico in some areas. I’m sure they could. (Yes, yes.) It was some years ago. They said US$15, we guarantee you can live in Mexico. They give you an address and place and everything. In some areas, you don’t have to live in the city, suburb or something. Some areas are also beautiful, but not so expensive. (Yes.) Can do because the money value is different from one country to the next. (Understand. Yes.)
I hope things get better for your country. (I hope so.) Truly, because the children suffer.
