In my interactions with readers and even with other personal finance bloggers there is a great deal of discussion regarding the following questions:
- What makes a blog a ‘Christian’ blog?
- Why post so frequently on topics unrelated to the Bible?
- What do you believe the Bible teaches about ___?
I am the one who warned you to be be Careful when you see the name “Christian”. As a result, I thought it would be good for me to introduce what I believe is the core purpose of Money Help For Christians (MH4C). In addition, I decided it would be valuable for me to put some of my core bible and money teachings in a brief, easy-to-access format.
Starting next week is a 10 week series on MH4C’s Faith Foundations. This series will introduce the purpose of this blog and will provide some brief foundational teachings on core topics.
- The Four Foundations of MH4C
- Why Blog About Financial Issues Unrelated to the Bible and Faith?
- The Importance of Attitudes and Motives
- What the Bible Teaches about Work
- What the Bible Teaches about Saving
- What the Bible Teaches about Investing
- What the Bible Teaches about Debt and Credit
- What the Bible Teaches about Insurance
- What the Bible Teaches about Spending
- What the Bible Teaches about Giving
For each topic I am going to do a ‘Cliff Notes’ edition. For the sake of brevity, I am going to limit my comments to one page (Word Document). This means my writings will not be complete, but will instead focus on brevity for the sake of clarity and simplicity. Once completed, this series will then be available as a core document to introduce new readers to the foundational beliefs here at Money Help For Christians. For existing readers it will be a resource you can use to review the biblical background and foundational assumptions behind a post topic.
Once the series is complete the material will be put into a simple, easy-to-access PDF that will be available to download on this website, free of charge.
Let me finish with the MH4C purpose (to be discussed in detail next week):
Money Help For Christians (MH4C) promotes a frugal, simple, debt-free, and generous lifestyle so Christians can faithfully maximize their resources by putting them at the disposal of God’s Kingdom. MH4C is committed to providing relevant resources in order to assist Christians in this effort.
