Author, clubhouse host and Twitter influencer Jimmy Sung joins Steven McClarg and CJ Wilson to discuss the religion of the ninth episode of “Bitcoin Bottom Line” and the production of his book “Thank God for Bitcoin”.
The song begins the discussion session with his book, sharing what he wanted to write because creating content is a way to help others on their journey.
“There’s a lot of conflicting voices, there’s a lot of noise,” Song said. “It’s hard to cut and understand what’s going on, so I try to make things easier to help others understand.”
McClarg shares that even after six years of explaining bitcoin to his wife, he didn’t fully understand the concept until he read “Content God for Bitcoin”. Since then, she has been enthusiastically sending it to all her friends and sharing it with her community.
“I’m just trying to help others, because Bitcoin has helped me in so many ways, especially financially,” Song said.
After working in corporate America and seeing his opinions widely with his employers, Song found the freedom to express his opinions and be authentic. He began sharing his beliefs at the Bitcoin Conference, where he was associated with six of his co-workers. The group conducted a zoom Bible study during the Kovid-1 pandemic epidemic, which resulted in the words “Thank God for Bitcoin.” They study what the Bible says about money and read economic textbooks, integrating the past 10 years of music experience with Bitcoin and its religion.
Wilson mentions that it is connected to the most futuristic meaning ever invented and some of the oldest rules. The similarity between the two shows that people have not necessarily changed in many ways.
“All the systems we have now tend to be very isolated to the soul and corporations continue to be one of those things,” Song commented. “It’s a completely artificial environment that we’re not necessarily equipped to deal with.”
“Bitcoin gives you a sense of freedom from the many control systems that exist,” he said. “There are a lot of things that end up controlling us that we think are beneficial to humanity, but they end our game.”
McClarg then explained that he had spent most of his life working for corporations where he had to bury his religious and political beliefs, but he changed that for his staff.
“When Leah and I started doing well, we decided that our values would be established in the company and people would be able to express them,” McClarg said.
Wilson concludes the episode with an analogy: “Bitcoin is a guiding star, as I walk across the ocean,” he said, “I know I’m going to face waves and sharks along the way, but Bitcoin drives my light and my vision.”
