The Staff at Reuters reports:

A 59-year old woman from the central Chinese city of Wuhan transformed her appearance through plastic surgery in order to avoid 25 million yuan (around $4.6 million CAD) of personal debts, state news agency Xinhua said.

In a case highlighting the challenges facing China as it tries to establish a “credit society,” police officers were reported to be “astonished” after apprehending the woman, who fled to the southeastern Chinese city of Shenzhen after a court in Wuhan ordered her to pay off her debt.

“We were very surprised at the scene,” the official Xinhua news agency quoted a policeman as saying. “She looked in her thirties and was different from the photos we had.”

The woman, identified as Zhu Najuan, also confessed to using other people’s identity cards to travel across the country by train. She financed her plastic surgery using borrowed bank cards, Xinhua said late on Friday.

APPLICATION

Some people seem to think that if they just change themselves, they can escape the responsibility of their past.  

But if our financial debt remains our debt until it’s been paid, so much more our spiritual debt. No matter how we reform our behavior, our past transgression must be paid, either by us or by Christ.

“He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross” (Colossians 2:14).

CNN reports:

After hanging up mid-sentence on a caller, a Houston 911 call center operator was heard on a recording saying, "Ain't nobody got time for this. For real," according to charging documents.

That call center operator identified as Crenshanda Williams was arrested and charged after allegedly hanging up on what could be thousands of emergency callers, according to the documents.

The 43-year-old had been placed under police investigation after her supervisors noticed that she had an abnormally large number of calls that lasted less than 20 seconds.

A review of the Houston Emergency Center database found that "thousands of short calls have been attributed to the defendant" from October 2015 to March 2016.

When interviewed by Houston Police in June, Williams allegedly told officers she often hung up on calls because she did not want to talk to anyone at that time. She was charged with interference with an emergency telephone call, which is a misdemeanor.

APPLICATION

God asked Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" "I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?" (Genesis 4:9).

Jesus described His mission by declaring, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends” (John 15:13).  He then went on to demonstrate the answer to Cain’s question by going to the cross and paying for the sins of the world.  Yes, we are our brother’s keeper!  If we are followers of Jesus, we “got time for this!”

Conservative Daily Post reports:

Mary from Dallas Texas filed a lawsuit against background check site Persopo.com on June 16, 2016 in state court.  In her lawsuit she alleges Persopo.com provided “confidential” information about her to her at the time husband.  Her husband divorced her based off this information and she wants Persopo.com to pay.

No where in the lawsuit does it dispute if the information is accurate or not.  Nor that she was having an affair on her husband with multiple men.

Conservative Daily Post spoke to Mary’s ex-husband Frank to figure out more about this strange situation.  Frank had suspected his wife of cheating for a long time.  She would constantly be gone for hours without answering her phone and never seemed to have an honest answer why she was gone.

...Frank had finally had enough and decided to start doing some research online. He found Persopo.com a background check site that can give you all sorts of information about someone.  To use Persopo.com all you need to do is type in a name and state and the system goes to work.  Pulling together every possible piece of information on them.

Persopo.com not only pulls from public records but many different social and dating websites around the internet.  It can give you a full picture of someone’s online activity almost instantly.  This is how Frank caught his wife Marry.

... “When I searched her name it came right up, she had accounts matching her name and email on cheatingwives.com, match.com and many others.” Frank said. “I just couldn’t believe this was the woman that I married.”

APPLICATION

Getting caught isn’t what ruins a person’s life, immorality is what ruins a person’s life.

"But a man who commits adultery has no sense; whoever does so destroys himself" (Proverbs 6:32).
