The Naked Church – Chapter – 13 Confessions of a Christian Materialist

–snip–
Since that day I’ve reevaluated a number of major Christian tenets. I know I risk sounding heretical here because in this culture we have married materialism to Christianity. We have even given its offspring a biblical name—stewardship—and under its protection we pursue material security, prosperity, and comfort, thinking these to be only an extension of our obedience to God. As I’ve looked closely I’ve found four concepts which are readily accepted in Christendom today, but which are actually nothing more than myths.

1. The abundant life includes financial security.
2. Riches are the gift of God.
3. It takes money to minister.
4. God’s first priority for my life is material. Recorded with permission from Wayne Jacobsen.
