Many people assume the Bible teaches that wealth is evil. A careful reading of Scripture, however, reveals that unless we are amassing or using resources inappropriately, money is less a vice to be avoided than a gift to be used and shared. Examining the Apostle James’s warnings regarding money, Alistair Begg cautions that the real dangers surrounding riches lie in our dependence on wealth over Jesus as our source of confidence.
5You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
