Re: Compulsive Hoarding
Its a POOR mentality. People have to have so much STUFF. Too much STUFF. They might need it someday. Ot so they think. They have an 'I'm poor' mentality.
I think there should be some kind of laws that people this unstable, being a health threat and a fire hazard threat to themselves and others, should be institutionalized for counseling. And teaching, and to get them out of that 'poor' mentality.
No wonder Jesus said, "Don't go down into your house to get your 'stuff'. Its all just....STUFF!
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
