Index of Topics:
This website is designed to be an educational resource on behalf of Christian readers, across a wide array of income ranges, languages, and cultures. The Bible is our primary text, as it is deemed by well-over a billion people to be the most reliable source of truth available. However, other sources of economic and financial information are consulted as well.
All the information provided on this website is considered by its authors and publisher to be reliable for accurately reflecting eternal truths and/or earthly realities; and thus, this information is provided by the authors in good-faith to our intended audience.
However, the authors and publisher are not responsible for ANY inaccurate information derived from third-party sources, but which is believed to be accurate by the authors and publisher. Further, neither the authors nor the publisher make ANY claim to be omniscient (i.e. “all knowing”, a characteristic belonging only to God Himself). Consequently, the teaching and information contained on this website must NOT be construed to be applicable to every person, in every type of financial situation, in every location (jurisdiction) upon the earth. Rather, this information should be considered biblical teaching regarding modern economic and financial principles, which must be appropriately applied to one’s own unique circumstances.
Each person is responsible to study the material on this website in its entirety to avoid any misunderstanding, and to augment the information provided on this website with:
- Further study of the Scriptures (2 Timothy 2:15)
- Further research of the topics explained herein from other sources (Proverbs 4:4-9)
- Consultation of other counsel as appropriate, especially professional and/or ministerial advice (Proverbs 11:14; 15:22; 24:6)
- Considerable prayer, seeking the Lord’s direction as to how to apply the truths and information on this website to each person’s own circumstances (Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6-7)
Again, the teaching contained on this website should NOT be considered specific financial advice or guidance, but biblical principles which must be properly applied to an individual’s particular circumstances with wisdom.
