Randy Alcorn on Repenting of Materialism

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).

For a great read, get Randy’s excellent little book The Treasure Principle.
