THE TREASURE PRINCIPLE
95% of Christians have never come to terms with a biblical perspective on their material possessions. God has entrusted His wealth to us and called upon us to manage and invest His money. When Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” they discovered an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and his children maximum pleasure. This book introduces us to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity.
HEALTH, WEALTH & HAPPINESS
46% of self-identifying Christians believe that God will make them rich if they have enough faith. Radio & TV proclaim this type of gospel daily – the gospel of prosperity. It teaches that God wants to fulfill our every desire for health, wealth and happiness and all it takes is sufficient faith. Is this the gospel? Or is it just a feel good, self-centered appeal to our materialistic impulses that omits the message of Jesus and the cross?
