Who Is A Slave To Money -- You May Be Surprised

Jun 6, 2008
Have you ever noticed how many people, even born again Christians, are taught that wealth leads the pure pious soul into corruption? For much too long we have been taught that money leads us into temptation and sin. Money will take over your life and ultimately enslave you. You must avoid becoming wealthy. It is sinful to desire a better life than the life you have now. Money will bring you to a horrible and eternal death. Money will become your master and lead you into eternal damnation.

This mindset is the exact opposite of the truth found in God's Holy Word. It is in opposition to the success principles promised to us in God's Word. It just does not seem to be logical that God would create this wonderful world and fill it with all of its wealth and beauty as a means to lead men astray or to tempt and corrupt them. The truth is that He created all of the wealth in the world FOR His magnificent and favorite creation - mankind. This understanding is essential to the success principles that you need to learn.

You can look around you and see that slavery to money is a real issue. However, the true cause of this slavery does not come from having an abundance of money. It comes from the 'lack' of money. It is a fact, and I'm sure that you have noticed, that the majority of people who do not have money are heavily in debt, work grueling and long hours for a little amount of money that does not cover the bills. Those who do not have money are constantly worried about how they are going to get the money for this or that bill. Unfortunately this situation puts people into a position where they are willing to do almost anything to get the money they need to survive. The true slaves to money are those who have to constantly rake and scrape enough of it to get by in this world.

We can say that money is a mirror and that one of the major attributes of money is that it simply reflects the real character of a persons. When you study success principles (Solomon's are, in my opinion the best) you need to consider the truth about financial slavery. If you are greedy, money simply reveals your greed. If you are dishonest, money amplifies this character trait. If you are prone to a poor mindset, you can't control money. If you are foolish (the Biblical meaning of 'without God'), you're soon parted from it. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 21:20 (The Amplified Bible) "There are precious treasures and oil in the dwelling of the wise, but a self-confident and foolish man swallows it up and wastes it."

Every day we see thousands of poor Christians who religiously go to Church every time that the doors are opened. Have you noticed how many born again believers are sick, poor, discouraged, plagued with debt and worry. It amazes me to see Christians falling for the old teaching that they must be poor to be humble. This image of a believer was established after the death of the last disciple who walked with Jesus Christ while He walked on earth.

It is a shame that there are so many who are slaves to money (to not having it). They are always trying to find enough to get by. You hear Christians praying for a financial blessing. I can imagine God looking from Heaven, shaking His head and saying, "Why don't you read your Holy Bible! I have created all that exists in this physical world for you. I have given you clear directions in My Holy Scripture for you to prosper." All of God's success principles are there.

When are believers going to start believing? The excuse that money leads to evil is wrong. The DESIRE for money is the root of evil. That is when the desire for money exceeds and precedes the desire for the presence of God. You can break the bondage of financial slavery. You can remove the curse of poverty from your life. You can do this and not succumb to the temptations of this lust-filled world. If you will simply change that poverty mindset, you can attain every success that God the Father wants for you.

If you can read and think and you are teachable, you can break the chains of poverty. Do you want to break the bonds of financial slavery? Do you want to live a successful, stress free lifestyle? We know that there will always be trials and tribulations. Finances do not have to be one of them.

In the New Testament Jesus told us that men would hate us because of Him. He taught us that we would suffer trials and tribulations. Trials and tribulations are the tests by which our metal is tested. These 'tests' are nothing more than character builders. You have been told in the Bible that Christ, on the Cross, defeated Satan. Why do you insist on letting evil defeat you? Why do you insist on letting a world that has been given to you, over which you have been given dominion, keep you down. You can dominate your world through the indwelling Holy Spirit of the One True Living God.

All human being are children of the King of King. You are an heir to the Kingdom of Heaven and co-heir with Jesus Christ. Why do you live like a pauper under the slavery of money?

Would you like to live free? Take the opportunity to break free. Would you like to provide for you family more than you can imagine? Study the manual that gives you every solution to every problem that you face in life.
