Slim has done a new series on “biblical economics” that I thought I’d link you up to! Here is part one, “Goodness of Material World” and part two, “Proverbs and Free Markets.”

I really appreciated his reaffirming, “when God created the physical world it was good.” Amen to that!

It’s kind of amusing but the Bible says “the LOVE of money is the root of all evil,” not the money itself. I’m laughing here, this sounds very simplistic, but if you believe money is evil, than as a Christian, you’ll just push the “evil” away! I can really testify to this truth, and often we people need a lot of healing, to pull out some weeds, some deceptions, and till the soil so something new can grow.

The second one, “Proverbs and Free Markets” gives a really good and clear definition of “capitalism” and explains why it is Biblical. Really important to understand that wealth is not virtue…..and neither is poverty. Those are modern Western deceptions, falsehoods, myths often entwined in our culture.

We’ve barely begun to scratch the surface here. It’s such a huge subject! So many of us need financial healing, spiritual healing, a good understanding of what the Bible really says, and lots of prayer to help us sort it all out as individuals.
