In order to act properly, Christians must think clearly and biblically.  Exploring the Bible for the topics of wealth and poverty fits into a larger framework of Christian Economics.  That is, a view of economics that takes into consideration important perspectives on the Bible’s view of humanity, sin, and redemption.
This assignment looks at a few key biblical passages to begin the process of building this larger Christian framework for understanding economics.  A number of categories will guide your review and formation of these key principles.  From this broader view, Christians can develop more specific action steps to address issues that galvanize our culture regarding wealth and poverty.
