The world’s financial system is definitely imperfect, and sinful people do sinful things. Ponzi schemes multiply, corrupt tax policy exists, the theft of savings through inflation is very real, the rich oppress the poor, loan sharks prey on the vulnerable, benchmark interest rates are lied about, contract law is violated, increasing debt is viewed as a good thing, and politicians lie about so many things to give people a fall sense of security. However, it is not just the higher ups pulling the economic strings that are entangled with sin, but many in society at large are also willing to lie, steal, and cheat the system. Some lie to get on disability, some cheat on their taxes, some believe that they should get free money from the government without having to work for a living, and others take on excessive debt even not intending to pay it back. The system is a mess, and this is what sin always does. People get into financial trouble, banks make terrible bets, and countries become insolvent. Now, without Jesus actually returning and sitting on the throne in His millennial kingdom, believers cannot expect a perfect financial system. However, the Bible does offer an array of Biblical principles but the question is and still remains;what role is the Church playing in educating believers on financial giving?
Giving is a way of expressing the Christian faith and a way of sowing seed into someone else. Most of all, giving is a natural expression of the Spirit of God that dwells within all believers. The Church on the other hand plays the
role of a teacher/admonisher in respect to giving.
