Safes are safer than banks.

Below is an excerpt from my dear friend Jason Hommel and his newsletter “The Silver Stock Report” I don’t share all his opinions but I found the warnings against banks intresting.  I really like the idea of everybody buying SAFES! Hahahaa….

Some think Matt 6:19 means that we, as Christians, can’t store money for the future, despite other clear verses that show that to be a virtue, such as Matthew 25, Dueteronomy 28:8, Proverbs 21:20, Proverbs 6:6-8, and Proverbs 30:24-45.

It is good to store up money to further the gospel kingdom; as ministry and service costs money. 

Jesus also warns against storing money in a location where thieves are known to break in and steal–this would include banks, which are institutions of theft.  Banks are the modern day “money lenders” in the Temple whose tables Jesus overturned, the modern thieves, because they only keep a fraction of deposits on hand.  The Federal Reserve is stealing value from people who hold paper money or bonds in banks through inflation.  (Hint: Do not store your precious metals in a safety deposit box in a bank.  Why store it in the viper’s den, where theives are known to break in and steal, or where laws can change and they can assess or tax or steal the contents of such a box in the future?)

Buying gold or silver is a way to store up treasures in heaven, since buying gold is an act of righteousness and obedience and dominion, and is a rejection of false weights and measures, and is a rejection of usury.  Neither moth nor rust affect silver and gold. 

Here is another often misunderstood verse:

Matthew 6:24  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Some think this means that Christians should live in poverty.  Not so.  There were rich disciples.

Matthew 27:57 When the evening was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:

Christians are called to be able to relieve the poverty of others, and that takes wealth.  How can you have extra to give to others, unless you have extra to give, or more than enough for yourself?  (2 Corinthians 8 speaks on this, the giving of one’s abundance, or surplus.) 

The whole point of free trade and capitalism is to be able to trade away the surplus of your production.  Matt 6:1-4 is about giving alms for the poor.  I believe that to “serve mammon, or money” means making money your master instead of making God your master.  We are called to master our money, to make our money serve us, instead, and take dominion, once again.

I believe Matt 6:24 is warning about how you must have a right view of money; that the wrong view puts money in front of God, the right view puts God first, us second, and money third. 

Furthermore, consider those who are in debt.  All who are in debt are serving a different master, they are serving their present and past selves as they seek to repay the money they borrowed and spent in the past, rather than serve the God of the past, present and future, and they enslave their future selves as they go into debt.

And how can you give to others while you are in debt?  To do so means that you take away from what is due to your lender.

Proverbs 22:7  The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

1 Corinthians 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
