Some may think that the words of this title were first spoken 13 years ago, and it appears that these words of caution, are becoming a by-word. Thee are in fact the words of Apostle Peter[1Pet.5:8] as He lifts up the Elders and remind Witnesses of their assignments.
The waters are so muddy now that most do not have a clear stance; don't know who to fight for, or against. "Home Defense" has been co-opted by greedy private corporations. This greed is extreme greed, aka covet, or covetousness: which is a part of the Ten Commandments.
Apostle Peter employs the word "Lucre" which means - eagerness for base gain. Greedy for money. Profit, unjust gain, acquired by violence. This has been going on for 2,014 yrs. and here we are today.

The Apostle Peter states - "Be sober, be vigilant; because our adversary, the Devil as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour".
