Theology of Money
This course is not a practicum; it is not about budgets or bookkeeping. It is, rather, a deep theological study of the difference between serving God and serving mammon. In it, students learn about currency, corporations, interest, debt, and the relevance of theology to economic systems. The course is designed for ministry leaders, board members, decision makers in business, stewards of bank accounts, and believers who seek financial integrity.
Key Questions To Be Explored:
What is money? Is debt a form of money?
What are the risks involved in using debt to build an economy or a business?
How can believers help each other recognize and resist the lure of mammon?
What does it practically mean to remember the poor?
What would society look like if everyone were to think Christianly about money?
"Theology of Money course surprised me from the start. What I expected to be a course about money and ethics in business or ministry quickly became a deep dive into the comprehensive nature of Jesus’ declaration, “You cannot serve both God and Mammon.” (Matt. 6:24) I now more fully understand the characteristics of both mammon's and God’s economy.
