The purpose of the Bible is… why, to help you to get rich!
Here I was, thinking that the Holy Scriptures are there to teach us God’s ways, His will for us, and to help us to know Him better, and to know the truth… when all the time it was about making tons of money!
There is an alleged “pastor” out there selling “The Lost Investment Principles of Scripture.” He says he can teach you how to read the Bible as “a secret code for making money… a code buried deep within the Biblical text.”
No, I will not give you his name, nor provide a link to his website. That would be to give him free advertising.
So, if you were naively thinking that God’s Word is truth, the word of eternal life, the moral law, or anything like that–well, pilgrim, you missed the boat. Please disregard those tricky passages about it being easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to get into Heaven. That’s just in there to disguise the real business at hand, which is to heap up riches–or so says the “pastor.”
Would you like to be in this guy’s shoes on Judgment Day?
