Christians need to stop listening to dilettantes like Dave Ramsey. Seriously, I am glad he can help so many people, but with his history of controversial statements (which I won’t get into), his view of economics does not hold any weight with me. Ramsey’s message to Wall Street Occupiers, which doesn’t mention Christ by the way (does he ever, just sayin!):”Grow up—and get a job.” Yes, we should celebrate the land of opportunity, but only when the people begin to recognize how “we got this land” hint hint hint, and who we had to step over to get these “opportunities.”
Secondly, it’s a sad fact that things keep getting piled onto the current scapegoat Bishop Eddie Long, but seriously, churches should not have investment seminars AT ALL! Why? Because what investment seminars end up being are live-action infomercials for businesses who happen to be ran by the highest tithers. Too many times, churches and pastors make decisions based on their wallets, and this is just another example.
