The religious connection

Over the past  three years I have been sued   for  questioning  what the OECD  defines as a corrupt practice  , the  court action aimed  to silence me  , has been un believable , I  have had no right to defend the truth  and  in the end it  will cost me  close to $200,000 ,a marriage and family destroyed due to the financial   pressure and the fear factor introduced into my husband  by lawyers who convinced him that  I would lose all our assets  due to  questioning corruption.

Last night  I  had the privilege of sitting beside an ordained Anglican priest , a lady who introduced to me the concept that  Religion is not about worshiping God  it is about worshiping GOOD. Makes you wonder   if the word has not been Good all the way along and some one dropped the O .

Religion plays a large part in my  story  because if those  who truly  worshiped God ( or GOOD ) there would be no story to tell .

The other thing this  wonderful lady  woke me up to  was that Fear  is the opposite to  Love , then she looked at my business card  which read Verisure and she pointed out that Veri  as in verily verily I come un to you  means truth .

My blog is not just about the bad  it is also  about gratitude and acknowledging the good and those  who make a difference.

To Gwendolyn Needham I thank you from the bottom of my heart  you are a lady who practices what she preaches and I hope that the truth  will set me free.

If every one was true to their values and their beliefs  then I would not be writing this blog  , the one issue I see which is central to corruption is that  many who claim to  be of a religion  have $kipped  one  passage in the bible  –Exodus 20:3 and worship $$$ instead.

Connection 1

Central to my story is a man who is an elder in the Laingholm Baptist Church. According to the constitution of the church (Charity Rules.pdf ) elders exhibit the character demonstrated in 1Timothy  3:1-7 .  As the story unfolds  I ask for you   to consider the facts  against  this bench  mark .

Connection 2

I was  married in St Georges Anglican Church in 1985, our vows sworn  before  God ( GOOD) were that  that we would share everything, 23 years later Fraser Powrie a Lawyer  on the vestry of St Georges  was to draw up documents which  would  introduce the concept of separate Debts into our marriage, in other words  if I  earned  $1  my husband would share 50/50 but  it if I lost a $1 the debt would be  all mine.  This action was so  that  my husband  would not suffer any financial  loss due  to the legal action which had been taken against me by the Baptist Elder  and I alone  would suffer the loss.

Fraser  motivated my husband in to this course of action  by introducing fear into him. My husband believed that  my honesty and truth would   eventually cause us to lose everything  and so  he paid  Fraser $33,000   for the advice  which included a strategy which would ensure that I had no alternative but to sign the document  .

I have asked the Anglican  church   if they  could enlighten me to the order of things, how sacred is my vow  when a lawyer  can  force me   to “ contract out” so to speak  of those vows  nearly quarter of a century later . Who  sits higher   God  or the lawyer  on the vestry?

Connection 3

Last Friday  when after a 9 month  wait I learned that  my appeal had been dismissed I went on line and  found myself on the web site and there I found  a comment from Harmony with regards to the  false  end title given by AWINZ  to  the  trilogy of the Lord of the rings and how  his life had been effected by the  very same people who had had such a profound effect on my life and that of my family.

It was pointed out to  us  that  Harmony and Grace found  each other  on Hollywood Jesus  and so we discovered  that  we both now have  hope and faith  that Good will prevail.


It  is interesting to note   that on advising the Laingholm Baptist church  of the content of this  blog page  they responded

Our country repeatedly assures us  that  there is a need for transparency and that we have transparency , For transparency to exist it has to be real.

Everything  I do on this blog  supports transparency



  1. Thank you Grace for your efforts to bring light to an important issue regarding animal welfare and human decency. My wish is that all parties will come to the realisation that it is not about them, which is a good beginning for the monumental mission of healing the world. Harmony

  2. This incredible passage from the bible was sent to me It is worthy of publishing here , the person who sent it to me made his own comments along the way

    Isaiah 59

    Sin, Confession and Redemption

    1 Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save,
    nor his ear too dull to hear.

    2 But your iniquities have separated
    you from your God;
    your sins have hidden his face from you,
    so that he will not hear.

    3 For your hands are stained with blood,
    your fingers with guilt.
    Your lips have spoken lies,
    and your tongue mutters wicked things.

    4 No one calls for justice;
    no one pleads his case with integrity.
    They rely on empty arguments and speak lies;
    they conceive trouble and give birth to evil.
    “How true, my comment”.

    5 They hatch the eggs of vipers
    and spin a spider’s web.
    Whoever eats their eggs will die,
    and when one is broken, an adder is hatched.

    6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing;
    they cannot cover themselves with what they make.
    Their deeds are evil deeds,
    and acts of violence are in their hands.

    7 Their feet rush into sin;
    they are swift to shed innocent blood.
    Their thoughts are evil thoughts;
    ruin and destruction mark their ways.

    8 The way of peace they do not know;
    there is no justice in their paths.
    They have turned them into crooked roads;
    no one who walks in them will know peace.

    9 So justice is far from us, “you can say that again” my comment
    and righteousness does not reach us.
    We look for light, but all is darkness;
    for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows.

    10 Like the blind we grope along the wall,
    feeling our way like men without eyes.
    At midday we stumble as if it were twilight;
    among the strong, we are like the dead.

    11 We all growl like bears;
    we moan mournfully like doves.
    We look for justice, but find none;
    for deliverance, but it is far away.

    12 For our offences are many in your sight,
    and our sins testify against us.
    Our offences are ever with us,
    and we acknowledge our iniquities:

    13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD,
    turning our backs on our God,
    fomenting oppression and revolt,
    uttering lies our hearts have conceived.

    14 So justice is driven back,
    and righteousness stands at a distance;
    truth has stumbled in the streets,
    honesty cannot enter.

    15 Truth is nowhere to be found, “absolutely”
    and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
    The LORD looked and was displeased
    that there was no justice.

    16 He saw that there was no one,
    he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;
    so his own arm worked salvation for him,
    and his own righteousness sustained him.

    17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate,
    and the helmet of salvation on his head;
    he put on the garments of vengeance
    and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak.

    18 According to what they have done,
    so will he repay
    wrath to his enemies
    and retribution to his foes;
    he will repay the islands their due.

    19 From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD,
    and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory.
    For he will come like a pent-up flood
    that the breath of the LORD drives along. [a]

    20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion,
    to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,”
    declares the LORD.

    21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.

    I have no idea of what you will think about that amazing chapter. I take great encouragement from this. I take verse 18 and accept that one day this whole disaster will be resolved
