Undisclosed compensation[edit]

I am sixty four years of age. I am an Archbishop with the Independent Christian Churches International. I have had experience in bi-vocational ministry since 1973. Presently serving in Pakistan until death, building schools for the deserving children and depending on God's mercy and kindness to have an influence in a such a great Nation. It is my strong suggestion that anyone who is being paid to contribute, edit, design, write, transcribe or alter pages, in Wikipedia, Wikimedia, or any other sight even remotely connected to this organization should make a full and complete disclosure of who they are, who they are being paid by, or what exchange of services they are receiving for such contribution to these sites. Reason: We live in a global society. We all are humans, therefore subject to bias, tradition, culture, and prejudices inherit in our society. We all are, from time to time, influenced by "greed" which has been the small but ferocious mind altering vices of humans as far back as we have written or oral communication. Now, in an age of information, Wiki has a deserving privilege to invoke whatever remedies are necessary to keep its public information trustworthy and clear of any human behavior that may be distracted by influences from outside sources.Let us not forget a very special example of one of the disciples of Jesus of Nazareth. On the same night that a lady of the street came in and broke a (stone) alabaster box of perfume on the feet of Jesus, which price was equal to one years worth of her wages. All of His disciples were so annoyed by this lavish expression of worship, could not hold their tongues still with critical and judgmental words of displeasure. It was that same night, while the entire room became filled with the Oder of this illustrious gift, a switch triggered in the heart of Judas to leave the room and go to the enemies of his leader and make an insignificant exchange of betrayal. If this could happen to such a person of such exposure to one of the world's most famous Spiritual Leaders, who then can be of such character that could not be influenced by compensation of any sort or kind. Thanks for allowing me the privilege of expressing my thoughts and thank all of you who have poured yourselves into making this resource such a blessing and educational tool for the future of our children.
