Religious admonitions against avarice and the accumulation of wealth.

One of the challenges to the development of economics was religious admonitions against avarice and the accumulation of wealth. An example in the New Testament of the Christian Bible is:

Matthew 19:21
New International Version (©1984)
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

  1. Wow thanks for sharing.

    I really wish more Christians knew about this video.

    I'm not an expert on world events but what they're saying here in this video shows that God's plan is unfolding before us right now.

    We're being warned and it shows that there will be some really bad consequences very soon for those of us who aren't prepared.

    After I saw it I really was pretty shocked at what they revealed, especially since it all lines up with Scripture.

    Hopefully they won't block it before you get a chance to watch it.
