Two Special Offers

I came across the following online advert: 

International Artist of The Esoteric Library provides his information
to you for specialist development through the use of: Feng Shui for your- ULTIMATE FINANCIAL GAIN!

LEARN THE SECRET FROM: Aztre Histori, Gold Master of Feng Shui. I show you the way to gain the Upper-Hand by simply re-organising your office or your home.

BRING WEALTH AND ABUNDANCE IN TO YOUR LIFE!

Magicians, Wizards, Kings and the Powerful Elite have used this very same Ancient Esoteric Technique to divert a 
SURGE of Divine Positive Energy towards THEM!

MASTER THIS SECRET TECHNIQUE - AND MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU WANT!
DON'T MISS OUT. FOR £459.99 LEARN THE SECRET TO THIS TECHNIQUE - I WILL SEND YOU THE 12 STAGE COURSE By POST.


Of course, it’s a con. If Feng Shui was effective at making one rich, why does this advertiser not use it himself and avoid the trouble of composing adverts? Or if he is rich, why is is selling its secret for £459.99? Why not give it away for free? If people had a spare five hundred quid knocking about, I very much doubt they’d be interested in studying this twelve stage course. 

Hopefully, no-one is daft enough to send any money to this person. Contrast this ‘special offer’ with God’s offer in the Bible:

Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.

Isaiah 55:1-2

Now who’s making the better offer?
