    it was amazing

    This work is worth the money and time in buying and reading from front to end. If you do not have money, sell your possessions to buy it! Our church has read this for our mid-week fellowship and it has challenged all of us in our Christian life when it comes to the issue of finance and posessions. It has also been used by the Lord to make me re-evaluate and re-affirm the importance of what I do in this life now, in light of the reality that there is an eternity with God coming. This work is best

    Money, Possessions and Eternity gives readers an eternal mindset on what money is and how to use it in a God-honoring way. Randy Alcorn expounds on the dangers of materialism, shares how we can overcome it, and explains how we can be a faithful steward of what God has given us. He also shows the Biblical view of debt, tithing, giving, saving, retiring, gambling and many more aspects of money and possessions. While not all of these topics were relevant to me in this time of life, this book impact

    “God created us to love people and use things, but materialists love things and use people.”

    Is that me? Do I clutch my possessions to myself or do I hold them out with open hands? Do I love people or do I use people? Powerful thoughts…

    This is a challenging book, and I’m thankful I had the opportunity to read it. I would recommend it to every young adult who wants to gain a solid foundation of what money is and how they should use it according to the Word of God. I can see myself going back to this book again and again whenever I face material decisions. Randy Alcorn addressed each subject in a Biblical manner, and I feel that I now can relate to many different areas in life with better vision. In my opinion, this is a book that would be very beneficial to readers who struggle to see their possessions in light of eternity.

    The only downside to this book is that it was extremely long – almost 500 pages. I think it could have been condensed at least slightly. Even so, I do recommend this book and expect to see myself studying it again in the future.

    I finished this book last year and kept meaning to write a really in-depth review of it, citing every verse and backing up every point. About 50 pages of notes in I realized that that wasn’t going to happen, so here’s the extremely abbreviated version, with only quotes that well-versed (ha-ha?) Bible-reader might not be aware of.

    This is a solid book with some good thoughts on just about every question a Christian might have about how to use money. Some of the side theology gets a little weird*,

    This is a solid book with some good thoughts on just about every question a Christian might have about how to use money. Some of the side theology gets a little weird*, but he raises a lot of important questions, backs up all of his opinions with the Bible, and illustrates with tons of real-world examples, statistics, and quotes from the greats. My main takeaways:

    1) Asceticism for its own sake is not valuable; it can be a pride-move and doesn’t automatically stop materialism.

    [God] is glorified by outwardly focused self-denial for the good of others, not be inwardly focused self-deprivation for our own benefit (including attempts to remove our guilt feelings) -Alcorn

    Poverty also hath its temptations… For even the poor may be undone by the love of that wealth and plenty which they never get; and they may perish for over-loving the world, that never yet prospered in the world. -Richard Baxter, 17th century

    2) On the other hand, wealth and possessions inevitably shift our focus from God to self by creating false self-security, encouraging pride, and distracting us from our purpose.

    Similarly, the more things we own–the greater their total mass–the more they grip us, hold us, set us in orbit around them. Finally, like a black hole, a gargantuan cosmic vacuum cleaner, they mercilessly suck us into themselves, until we become indistinguishable from our things, surrendering ourselves to the inhuman gods we have idolized. This is the final end of materialism. -Alcorn

    3) We are stewards of God’s money. We should be as careful about how much of our wealth we spend on ourselves as we would if we were employees allowed to set our own salaries from the company’s profits.

    Because he’s not physically present, there’s a long-distance relationship–and, consequently, delayed accountability. It’s a test of each servant to see if the master’s standards are maintained even though he isn’t there to give immediate reward or correction. -Alcorn

    4) Remembering that this world is not our final home should guide how we use our money.

    Women sometimes have the problem of trying to judge by artificial light how a dress will look by daylight. That is very like the problem of all of us: to dress our souls not for the electric lights of the present world but for the daylight of the next. The good dress is the one that will face that light. For that light will last longer. -C.S. Lewis

    The more holdings we have on earth, the more likely we are to forget that we’re citizens of another world, not this one, and that our inheritance lies there, not here. -Alcorn

    5) Tithing a tenth of your income is a great way to start giving. Treating this as the bare minimum you’ll give (not as the maximum amount God could ever demand of you or a free pass to live in opulence as long as you tithe) is an extremely valuable attitude. It was required in the OT, and evidence shows that Christians exceeded it rather than ignoring it.

    ….the Jews were constrained to a regular payment of tithes; Christians, who have liberty, assign all their possessions to the Lord, bestowing freely not the lesser portions of their property, since they have the hope of greater things -Iraneus, 2nd century

    Tithes are required as a matter of debt, and he who has been unwilling to give them has been guilty of robbery. Whosoever, therefore, desires to secure a reward for himself… let him render tithes, and out of the nine parts let him seek to give alms. -Augustine,4th century

    6) The first goal is to give – for the benefit of others and to keep our own focus on God. The second is to give responsibly (to help people, not to subsidize them, and to spread the gospel). Don’t ignore the first because you don’t have time for the second.

    7) Choosing a lifestyle and giving away everything else is better than choosing an amount to give and enjoying everything else as “your own”. It is extremely common for people to raise their standard of living to match their income and to give a smaller percentage as they get wealthier, which is the opposite of what should be true.

    I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable expenditure excludes them. -C.S. Lewis

    How different our standard is from Christ’s. We ask how much a man gives. Christ asks how much he keeps. -Andrew Murray

    8) While saving for the future is good and wise, saving ‘too much’ shows lack of faith and values your own security over the current needs of others.

    Make as much as you can, save as much as you can, and give as much as you can – John Wesley

    Earthly goods are given to be used, not to be collected. Hoarding is idolatry. -Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    Saving is a means of not presuming upon God. Hoarding is a means of replacing God.-Alcorn

    9) A bunch of practical discussion on everything from gambling (never wise), investing (should be careful not to profit from evil), leaving money to your children (think carefully about whether wealth would be good for your children’s spiritual welfare), debt (be careful about tying yourself to a master other than God / limiting the ways you could serve God), ministry finances / fundraising, etc.

    Everyone should study this issue and examine their lives carefully. This book is a good guide.

    *Alcorn tries to reconcile a “nothing you can do affects your salvation” view with a “God promises rewards for tough obedience when it comes to money” view by a tiered system of heavenly rewards, which I don’t think I buy… but this is a side note to his point, which is to take the “do what God says and he will reward you” passages seriously.
