2 Timothy 3:16-17 (King James Version)
16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Welcome to Wealth From The Bible!
The purpose of Wealth From the Bible.com is to provide a forum by which we examine what the Bible has to say about money and stewardship. The primary tenet of Wealth From the Bible.com is that the Word of God is taken as absolute truth. We will entertain no debate or discussion about the Divine origin of the Word of God. It’s it and that’s that! This is our basic guiding principle and doctrinal statement. We want to make that perfectly clear upfront.
However, that is NOT to say that we will avoid debates or shy away from controversies! Even among the best God-fearing Christians differences in interpretation occur. We will simply acknowledge that the (perceived) problem is definitely not with God’s Word. If that disagrees with you than go back to Google or wherever you came from.
Well, glad that’s settled. So then, what are we about?
When I came back to the Lord in the late 1980s, I was bankrupt financially and spiritually. During that time I had a revelation in which I realized that God’s Word is Truth and is relevant to any situation we as humans encounter as we walk though this brief life. I devoured scriptures as popcorn – especially those relating to finances. I was in a financial mess and was foolish enough to believe that the Lord could deliver me.
So, I started this website so that others could avoid the mistakes that got me into trouble in the first place. Furthermore, the Bible can show us the true path to riches. Additionally (perhaps selfishly), I want to learn from those of you out there that have struck the Father lode in their mining of God’s Truth. I also want to start a community in which we can edify one another, reach out to a lost and dying world that struggles with financial issues, and add to the body of knowledge that will help us use money – and not vice versa! – as God originally intended way back when.
Won’t you join me as we explore the treasury of God’s Word?
