The Money Papers

Saved by an "m"

Some years ago a rather wealthy woman in England came into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She made mention of a passage in Firstt Corinthians: Chapter One. She said she had saved by an "m."

For the message (logos) of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 

For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 

For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty,

not (m)any rich, 
are  called. 

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. 

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:19-27)

'Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you!
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 
Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion
will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. 
You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 
Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields,
which you kept back by fraud, cry out;
and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. 
You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury;
you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. 

You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

Therefore be patient, brethren,
until the coming of the Lord.
See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth,
waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.
 You also be patient.
Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand." (James 5:1-8)

Redeeming Money by Paul Tripp, Crossway, Wheaton, 2018

Scott Talbot of Dallas Theological Seminary speaks about a New Paradigm concerning money. Added 11/3/2020.

The Love of Money


6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

The Good Confession

11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep thismncommandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

Instructions to the Rich

17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, 19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. (1 Timothy 6)

A wonderful Arab tour guide in Israel back in 2001 said to our group,
“You all know that money is a root of all evil and that money causes much suffering. 
I want to help you. Just give me your money and I will suffer for you.”
