    People prosper by making use of their talents. Everybody has talents. If they develop them and market them, they can make a fortune. Its all about helping other people.

    The NT teaches charity is the greatest virtue and treasure in heaven should be where our heart is, whereas the OT teaches families to become independent dynasty's building wealth on earth.

    Yes.  Levitical law covered economics and provided for the over-all growth of the entire nation of Israel.  It covered both the rich and the poor and under that law, no one starved.  "Slaves" were actually people that were trained up for 6 years and then placed into their own business or chose to stay in the employ of their employer.  Social security was the people caring for the widows and the fatherless.  I love how people just skip right past that when they go on about how capitalism is the only way.

    It is written: No man that warreth  entangleth himself with the affares of this life;that he may please him who hath chosen him to to be a soldier.
    If they think that they can do it without God and better than He can, it is their right to try. But God will always have the last word and the best solution.
    They don't include God in their decisions...so they have to bear their own burden, and solve their own problems.

    ...wow....  For starters, The Torah is all about ecomony, really!...  Additionally, the 7/7---good luck/back luck concept originates from The Old Testament.  How does this relate to us?  Well, when we file for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy today---if we qualify---most debts are wiped off.  Much of the laws we have in our Country about credit, collections and money lending originate from The Bible.

    The Bible teaches that God the Father provides all our needs to live a life of abundance. Every provision has already been provided (since the creation of the world), we just need to learn how to take hold of theses provisions, which are provided to us by grace, through faith. You see, in the kingdom of heaven, which is in the spirit of a believer has no lack or economic down-turns.

    Read Matthew 6:25 "Do Not Worry", this may shed more light on the subject of having all your needs met. That's what economics is about, right? Meeting the needs of everybody.

    It's called entering Gods rest. "Therefore, since the promise of entering His rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did. But the message they heard was of no value to them (children of Israel), because those who heard did not combine it with faith. Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said... " Hebrews 4

    The Lord's work has been finished since the creation of the world. "On the seventh day God rested." Not because He was tired, it was because He was finished. That is why He knows the beginning and the end. From that time everything was put in perpetual motion, so to speak.

    Those who seek and find the Lord will not be disappointed.

      Would you take some time to explain how "God's rest" of Hebrews 3 and 4 refers to economic wealth?  Thanks

    "The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: (1 Sam.2:7),

    For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper (Psa. 72:12).  The poor should appeal to God and He will help.

    Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
    (Ps. 11:1).

    As Christians we are asked to help the poor and needy, the widows and orphans.
    The poor will always be there and we who are better off should contribute to the poor.
