I dare to open up with this cracker: money is a building block for your castle. Do you believe that one from me? Well, your answer does not really matter. For seeing the place money occupies in our modern day. Money is glorified, taunted, and exalted above all else. That is where man has placed money up in that pedestal where it screams at you and I worship me or you will be down there occupying the lowest ladder of degeneration, penury and dehumanization. Money says you can not measure success without using me as a yardstick. I buy the fleet of cars, the flotilla of airplanes. It says I cough in Mexico and they heard it in Manilla; I sneezed in cape and they heard it in Cairo. But not all men bow to money or at least those who have renewed thier mind according to the word of God, Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Let us therefore hear the views of the aforementioned teachers of the word who left us a footmark to follow.

Paul’s view:

The love of money and its consequence: 1 Timothy 6:10 ,For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. If money or having enormous wealth is part of our inheritance, then why would Paul say these things that will slow us down in our quest for money? Paul worked as a tent marker , encouraging others to work with thier hands for thier need.

His way of life tells it all: 2 Thessalonians 3:8-10 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

Paul’s command: For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

There is no passage, absolutely no passage in the scripture that tells us that we become wealthy either by paying tithe or being a major contribution to the project at hands.2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.


See you for the final part next week, please share!!
