Kindred,

I do not understand men who seek to glorify themselves instead of the Lord.


I understand less men who serve men who seek to glory themselves instead of the Lord.


Isaiah 43:7 “everyone who is called by my name, whom I have created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”


Therefore, all glory should go to the Lord.


"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

                                1 Cor 10:31



Though I do not believe the Lord requires (as requiring obedience to the commandments to love the Lord and thy neighbor as self) glory, but to those that seek it, it should go to the Lord, because everything belongs to the Lord.  


What is the point of acquiring land and property, especially against the will of the people there and causing needless deaths of the children of the Lord on land, property and people that belong to the Lord?


Everyone will be poorer for an imagined glory that goes against humanity and the Lord.
