The New Testament Studies Class is disbanding and we want to thank Pam Postle for her leadership in this class this fall. We hope you will attend our one adult Sunday Studies class which will now meet in the Lange Room.
Greed – another of the seven deadly sins, is considered among the worst of sins because it is so easily cloaked in virtue. That greed is so obvious and obviously wrong does not mean that we have it under control. For example, many Christians claim that their wealth is a blessing from God, and do not attribute its accumulation to greed. Americans consume resources at a much higher rate than others on the planet. If everyone consumed at that rate, the world could not sustain its population. Yet this pattern of consumption is rarely considered a symptom of greed. Although churches talk about greed in a general way, it rarely calls for one to personally examine finances and purchases. We will discuss the definition of greed, what the Bible says about greed, how our country got into such a financial mess, and what the recent “Occupy Wall Street” movement says about our culture. This discussion will be led by Marvin Pritts and will meet in the Lange Room.
