Rich and Poor on TGC

I have an article today at TGC on Christianity and the relationship between rich and poor:

Healing the relational estrangement between rich and poor is one of the most central elements of Christian living. James points to “partiality” among economic classes as a quality that demonstrates unbelief and leads to perdition (James 2). Paul identifies “contentment” with your economic position as a way of life that distinguishes true believers from false teachers (1 Timothy 6:3-10).

Check out the comment thread, where I’m accused of something (it’s not quite clear what) involving atheism and mind control.

2 Thoughts.

  1. Thank you so much for your article and your blog. More often than not, your perspective helps me understand and firm up the belief system I already have. Praying for you brother, as you weed through accusatory replies from some who, after a little google search, appear to be serial arguers :).

    • Thanks for the encouragement! Being something of a serial arguer myself, I am 1) not well positioned to sit in judgment on my interlocutors, but 2) well equipped to hold my own against them. 🙂
