A Christian View of the Economy

In his most recent blog post, Southern Seminary president Albert Mohler offers some good thoughts on how a Christian should evaluate the current economic situation.  Here is a quote I found especially helpful:

“The desire for a profit, for income, and for material gain is not in itself greed.  The Bible clearly teaches that the worker is worthy of his hire and that rewards should follow labor, thrift, and investment.

“Greed raises its ugly head when individuals and groups (such as corporations or retirement funds) seek an unrealistic gain at the expense of others and then use illegitimate means to gain what they want.”
