Money & Economics
God in His Word has much to say about money and economic issues, and the ways that we produce and use it. There are many perspectives among Christians concerning this issue. What is the biblical way to think about money on a personal and societal level? How should we understand money in light of the kingdom of God? What does a responsible, godly attitude towards wealth look like?
Islam has positioned itself as a correction and completion of Judaism and Christianity. However, Islam and the Quran are incompatible with Christian doctrine and the text of Scripture. The church must take the growth of Islam seriously; it is a movement and a worldview that is as political as it is religious, with significant implications for culture and society. As heralds of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are entrusted with delivering the good news of the gospel to Muslims, to declare freedom in Christ from slavery to sin, and to present Christ, not sinful man, as the sovereign King who rules justly and righteously.
Witchcraft is the attempt to acquire knowledge or power by manipulation and control. Scripture is clear that, apart from God and his word, such an act is in fact a headlong plunge into folly. The apostle James reminds us the path to true spiritual insight: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him” (James 1:5). A humble and faithful plea to the only wise God is the way of wisdom. Any supposed shortcuts are the way of rebellion.
