Helping People Find and Follow Jesus

When Wealth Strangles

It is impossible to follow Jesus in a society as prosperous as America without ever wrestling with the question of what He wants you to do with your money.
Unfortunately, answers to that question–even by those who claim to teach the Bible–vary so dramatically that, lacking clarity, we gravitate toward our preferences … or, to use the language of the apostle Paul, we gather around us a great number of teachers to say what our itching ears want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3).
 But I dare you to find a prosperity preacher who regularly quotes the Gospel of Luke. Why? Well, let’s just say Luke doesn’t scratch where we itch.
But integrity demands that we brace ourselves and let Luke speak, because his Gospel contains far more words of Jesus on the subject of money and possessions than any other New Testament book. So this Sunday at White Pine, we are going to highlight every quote of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke that has financial implications.
 
I promise you this: Clarity.
