Nathan at ThinkChristian asks: True or False? Christians shouldn’t make six figures. He claims that “most of” the world’s population lives on less than $2 a day (though link he sites says “nearly half of.”
I think he makes a good point. Rich Christians bear the burden of proof when the bible so clearly calls the wealthy to concern. Remember what Jesus said about how hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom? By global standards, a solid 70% of Americans are wealthy….
On the other hand, I think the point isn’t strictly a matter of income, but participation in stewardship of all that God has given us charge over. Much is expected (by God) of those to whom much has been given.
What do you think?
