Money Myths

There are many lies that our culture believes about money. Statistically, the Church believes the same lies. If we can view money correctly, it provides a freedom and joy that is more satisfying than the lies we tend to spend our lives believing. This series will address four myths and the Bible’s response to those myths.

I Just Need A Little More

January 24, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 4

When it comes to money, the message we hear from our culture is that we just need a little more; and if we had a little more, then we would be happy and our problems would be solved. However, in 1 Timothy 6, Paul warns us of the danger in believing this money myth. Paul tells us that, "Godliness with contentment is great gain." In this message we'll learn more about what that means in our day and age.

Is it A Sin to be Rich?

January 31, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 2 of 4

Most people secretly hope to be rich someday. At the same time, it’s increasingly common to resent “the rich” or to blame them for some of our economic and social problems. Though the Bible never condemns wealth, it does warn us about the dangers that come with it. The key to maintaining our perspective is to always remember where wealth comes from and Who ultimately owns it all.

The Church Just Wants My Money

This is one of the most common myths in our culture. Unfortunately, this myth has been reinforced by questionable practices and high-profile scandals in churches and ministries of all kinds. Although we can’t speak for other churches, we can say that at Parker Hill, giving isn’t about getting people’s money, it’s about changing people’s hearts.

Giving Is For People Who Have Extra

February 14, 2016 by Mark Stuenzi Message 4 of 4

Our natural tendency as human beings is to put ourselves first, while making God an afterthought in our lives. Because of this tendency, when it comes to giving, most people give spontaneously, sporadically and sparingly. Instead, our giving should be defined by words such as priority, percentage and progressive. When we honor God by giving him our first and best, He will bless us.
