New Testament on Corporations

New Testament

 


Wealth isn't a sin; it depends on how you got it

Some people preach that having too much is a sin, but that is not what the Bible teaches. The issue of wealth is not how much you have but how you got it.

One of the great challenges of life is determining that our pleasure shouldn't be based on the amount of our treasure. When life and its enjoyment are defined by what we have accumulated, we're to be pitied rather than envied. Our treasure should never become our job, home, car, property, or any other "toys." Consumerism can be intoxicating and addictive. Those who are swept up in its power find their occasional moments of ecstasy tied to the purchase of something.

A sense of real peace is achieved only when you can say that material things are genuinely immaterial. It's not so much what we have but what has us that will determine our inner tranquility. There's no prohibition in God's Word to having much, but there's a strong admonition not to allow even a little to possess us.
