In For the Fame of God’s Name, Randy Alcorn contributed a chapter entitled “Dethroning Money to Treasure Christ Above All.” He writes:
“Financial stewardship seems to be the last bastion of accountability. People are more open about their sexual struggles than battling materialism. Some churches are talking about getting out of debt. I applaud that. But you can be out of debt and still be stingy and greedy. We don’t need to become smarter materialists; we need to repent of materialism” (emphasis mine).
