Sam Bankman-Fried is Fried
Here’s what we’re going to cover today.
Thai Prostitutes and a New Superspecies?
Upcoming for High on Christ
1. Thai Prostitutes and a New Superspecies?
Imagine if you could lavishly blow billions of dollars on anything you wanted—a penthouse in the Bahamas, your very own giant stadium, and investments into NBA legends like Steph Curry.
Now imagine doing that when you’re only 29.
This was the life of Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF)… until he found himself in a courtroom on two counts of fraud and five counts of conspiracy.
SBF was the former CEO of the second-largest crypto exchange. In case your head’s been buried in the sand, he’s done some pretty crazy stuff:
Donated stolen funds to politicians for a political edge
Tried using Thai prostitutes to get money from the Chinese government
Successfully bribed the same government with $150,000,000
Tried to buy an island where he’d create a new superspecies
Gave his girlfriend unlimited access to company funds
Wow, what an idiot!
But let’s be honest — we’re all criminals at heart. The primary reason most of us have not committed heinous crimes is quite simply, because of a lack of sufficient opportunity. The consequences always outweigh the rewards. Strip away those consequences and our depravity would soar.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
So maybe we’re all idiots, saved by grace. We must consider the depth of our depravity through the lens of Christ on the cross. We should be like the humble tax collector in Luke 18, beating our chest and proclaiming, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!”
Hey Hillsong, if you’re listening… I got the title for your next big hit.
“Idiots Saved by Grace.”
I even made an album cover for you.
