Pastor Stoos raising some interesting questions about wealth and commerce as he reviews more of what we are told about God's very good creation before the fall of man. However, the focus is on the balance that Christians must have when it comes to wealth and how man is the crown jewel of God's Creation.
Great Sermon! I learned a lot here. I never heard of you but I did a query on "Money in Heaven" and found you. I learned a whole lot. The way you described commerce from lens of the evolutionist verse the believer was eye-opening. The precious gold and stones spoken of in the Garden and in our life to come, was really great information. I was blessed.
The only part I think I had a problem with was you said you and your were never tempted when you had a little. Seems that we are always tempted. If between the two of you, during a period of lack, neither of you were tempted with the idea of money, you are above the most of us. Being tempted is nothing we should be ashamed of. If we accept the temptation then we have a problem.
I will hang around your site looking for more precious nuggets. You are a blessing to the Body.
