The nation’s economy, like that of many nations, reveals people’s priorities and motives in the use of money. For over 30 years I have pointed out that money is governed by laws other than economics, those laws are spiritual and moral and if not understood leads to corruption. Humanist thinking rejects these laws that govern economics so it is no surprise to see corruption manifest itself in all levels of society whether it be individual or corporate.
Between 1560 and 1599, The Geneva Bible was providentially unleashed upon a dark, discouraged, downtrodden English speaking world. Just when it looked as if the Machiavellian, Divine Right kings, such as the Tudors of England, were about to drive Christendom back to the days of Caesar worship, a Bible appeared that set the stage for a Christian Reformation of life and culture the likes of which the world had never seen. By the time of the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, just 28 years after the first printing of the Geneva Bible, it was already being said of the English that they were becoming a “people of the Book.” The results of a people reading and obeying the Word of God were the explosion of faith, character, the first missionary movement in history, literature, economic blessing, and political and religious freedom.
