Jesus said it plainly: "No one can serve two masters; you cannot serve God and mammon" (Matthew 6:24). This course is about the subtleties of mammon that influence the deep structures of the world’s financial systems. It is a graduate-level study that unveils how mammon operates in comparison to God. Students will be taught how to think theologically about God and money, mammon and debt, and about worldly power verses spiritual power. It is an eye-opening course designed for believers who are making financial decisions in ministry, government or business.
