International Bible Teacher Says Christians Should Trust God In This Difficult Economy

An international Bible teacher, author, and co-founder of a teaching
ministry says Christians in America can and should find hope in the
midst of the economic downturn.


Recent news reports of the fluctuating economy and the downturn in the
Dow have many people, including Christians, worried about the future.
Stuart Briscoe, co-founder of Telling the Truth ministry and author of more than 40 books, believes God’s Word instructs Christians how to live in uncertain times.
 
“[The Book of] James goes on to explain [that] we don’t welcome those
trials because they make us feel good,” he points out. “We welcome
these trials because we know what is going on. And what is going on is
that these particular situations give us the opportunity of living at a
different level — and that is the reason why we should respond
positively to the trials.”
 
Briscoe also suggests that materialism has caused many Christians to
focus on the riches of the world instead of true riches found in a
deeper walk with Christ.
