Becoming a Millionaire God's Way: New Book Tells You How to Get Rich Without the Guilt...

0446697885I was just standing around Barnes & Noble reading as much as I could of Becoming a Millionaire God's Way by C. Thomas Anderson, the first pastor to invite the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author to speak at his church.

Of course, I didn't get far past the intro -- written by the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author -- but what I read was pretty compelling.

About how Christians can't think it God's will for us to be poor...

...and neither should prosperity preaching be all about what we can get, but how to best use money as the tool it is.

To invest wisely.

To help others.

To not guilt and condemn people with wealth, and accuse them all of "selling their souls" for having money -- like some lady did the Rich Dad, Poor Dad author when his book became a smash success.

He said he didn't like his church in Hawaii because of that attitude.

Hopefully I'll get to read all of this new book some day.

Or at least learn the best tips!

All men's gains are the fruit of venturing. Condemning people with wealth is closest to envy as it can get.

some people enjoy reading to understand the feeling of the author on certain issues, and make use of it in the future..

Making money isn't wrong, but the love of money causes problems. You have to be able and willing to give it all away to follow Jesus if he asks (I know that I for one wouldn't find that easy!). Also, if you make money your focus you may miss out on God's blessing. The early church was spread and led by people who had very little and typically lost even that as they were taken off to be martyred, but we know that they were blessed. Stephen saw heaven open as he died and forgave those who killed him.

PS I don't normally talk like this, but you have touched on some core issues for me. Keep up the blogging.

I see that "Dominating Amazon by James Simpson" has been hijacked by a Sexual Domination webpage. I have tried hard to find this book's download webpage but keep getting the Red Domination page. Anybody know how to find the real thing?
