 God and Money 

 By Maria Brafford

We have all heard that we should store up treasures in heaven and that it is better to give than to receive. If you are a church-goer in America, the concept of giving is well-known to you. Our nation is a very generous nation and we are a very generous people. It is not uncommon for us, in the United States, to send money to far-away places to help strangers who have been struck by natural disasters or national tragedies. But how much should we give? To whom? And how often? These are more difficult questions with which we all wrestle.

Although the Bible has a lot to say about money management, most preachers shy away from the topic. It is rare to hear a sermon on tithing or giving because the pastors are afraid to turn off parishioners who might perceive this teaching as meant to squeeze more money out of their pockets. Those who think tithing is an important part of stewardship wrestle with questions such as whether to tithe on the gross or on the net? Recently, I read “God and Money”, published by Rose Publishing. The authors conclude that tithing is not required of us because we live under grace; but their rationale will surprise you. It sure surprised me. I have come to think that this concept of grace has been taken to the extreme and has resulted in people becoming cheap and stingy with their money; inoculating them against the genuine needs around them, as if all that is required is that you give cheerfully, not generously.

 Fake News vs Good News 

 By Pastor Bob DiSalvio

“Fake News” has become the phrase De Jour. It’s defined as “accusation, rumors, and accounts for which there is no evidence but which nevertheless are reported as genuine news stories.”

When “Fake News” is presented as “Real News”, that presentation ruins the lives of the people it targets and distorts the events it reports on!

“Fake News” is undermining our ability to discover the truth concerning the many serious issues of the day.
Eventually “Fake News” reports are revealed for what they are…lies! Those lies are revealed because they can’t stand up to the test of time and scrutiny.

In stark contrast, may I submit the “Good News”: God came to earth in human form in the person of Jesus Christ—He came with a purpose: to save humanity from the consequences of our sin and death. That purpose brought Jesus to a cross where He was crucified. His death satisfied the steep price God places on unconfessed and unrepented sin. His blood was the agent by which sin is forgiven and for which salvation is bought and paid. His burial was the logical consequence of death by crucifixion. He lay in a borrowed tomb for three days. But, on a bright sunny Sunday morning, followers found the tomb was empty—Jesus had risen from the dead—just as He prophesied!
