How Do We Trust God In A Collapsing Economy?

Can You Trust God in a Collapsing Economy? As I write this article the news media is flooded with stories about the possibility—or reality—of a recession. The rising price of energy has combined with the sub-prime loan crisis to create a domino effect that is reverberating through all the branches of the economy. Like pulling a thread from a sock, when one part of the economy unravels, all other parts suffer, too. Like it or not, we are all affected.

The Christian And His Money

Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him” (1 Corinthians 16:2). It is an interesting fact that immediately following the great resurrection chapter in this first epistle to the Corinthians, the Apostle gives instruction to the saints concerning the use of their money. With many this is always a touchy question, and yet he who sings from the heart, “Naught that I have my own I’ll call: I hold it for the Giver: My heart, my strength, my life, my allAre His and … Read More >
