What Jesus Really Taught About … Money
“The love of money is the root of all evil,” or so the saying goes. Everyone knows that’s not literally true, but on the other hand, everyone knows it’s mostly true. Whether it’s a military war over who controls the oil, or a trade war over who controls the steel, it seems like there’s a lot of evil going on that’s being fueled by the desire of greed and avarice. Jesus said “Blessed are the poor,” but then he also spent significant time with wealthy people … and he didn’t tell any of those he hung out with to give it all away and go be poor. This week’s Conversation will take a bold look at what Jesus really taught about money.
