Biblical Principles of Money and Banking
Written by Gary North.
Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water.
Who knew that the Bible had so much to say about the issues of money and banking? The issue is a serious one because of the important history here and also because the Bible is such a foundational part of public understanding of every issue of public life and morality. You can search the libraries for weeks and not find a guide as good as Gary North's detailed account of every mention of money and banking in both the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. What he finds underscores what the hard-money tradition has long said. Governments engage in evil when they change the definition of money. Inflation is a danger to the individual and society. Governments that monopolize the monetary system are abusing their power. Governments cannot be trusted with money. That's the lesson.
