Many North Americans own so much stuff that they actually have to pay to keep it in storage: the self-storage industry in the . has grown bigger than the entire music industry, at a whopping 12 billion dollars a year. We also have to build and buy bigger homes to house all our unused stuff: new homes today have three times the closet space of a typical 1950s home. 1
So the Bible doesn’t tell us how many possessions to sell. But why does it say sell possessions at all? Why? Giving alms — using your money to show love for those without the necessities of life and without the gospel (the necessity of eternal life) — is so important that if you don’t have any liquid assets to give, you should sell something so you can give. But now think what this means in context. These disciples are not cash-poor rich people whose money is all tied up in bonds or real estate. Most people like that do, in fact, usually have fairly deep savings. But Jesus didn’t say, “Take some of your savings and give alms.” He said, “Sell something, and give alms.” Why? The simplest assumption is that these folks lived close enough to the edge that they did not have cash to give and had to sell something so they could give. And Jesus wanted his people to move toward simplification, not accumulation.
Law enforcement agencies say the ability to seize cash, cars and other belongings from suspected drug dealers provides a powerful tool for fighting the narcotics trade. They argue that confiscating these illicit proceeds puts a financial dent in the dealers' ability to operate while boosting law enforcement resources to go after drug peddlers.

You are all wrong…. The fact is, that you do not even own your home even after you pay off the mortgage. Your mortgage is subject to a “grant from the Crown”. Which means that the “Crown” owns the property and gives you certain rights to the property (like living there), as long as you comply with the rules and legislations that you agreed to follow when you signed on the dotted line. When you finish paying off the mortgage what they give you is document entitled “discharge of mortgage”. You do not receive the title to the land or buildings. The only way to own property is to have allodial title to the property. The only one to have allodial title to all property is the Crown, which is a corporation owned by the queen of England. Why do you think they call it ” Crown Land” duh….
It’s not as easy as it sounds, I know. But it can be done, and when you do it, you’ll feel amazing.
