For those of you who weren’t able to make it to Secret Church, the audio is now available. Be warned: this teaching is offensive to us Americans. As Platt walks through verse after verse and passage after passage of what the Bible has to say regarding wealth and possessions, it becomes vividly clear, at least to me, that the vast majority of Christians in the U.S. (including myself) are blind to the idol of greed to which we are bowing down. We are a prosperous people and live in a prosperous nation. We spend countless dollars on ourselves while billions in the world don’t know Christ and suffer in poverty.
Between attending this event and reading his newly released book Radical, David Platt has been used by God to deeply challenge me about the way I view money, investment and possessions, and how they relate to God’s kingdom purposes. I hope that you will give his teaching a listen, and pick up his book while you’re at it. May God move on our hearts to be sacrificial givers for the sake of His name among the nations. May we be doers of the Word, and not hearers only.
