helpful Mar 10, 2008
A frind of mine used all of Barry's materials in his church and it just put his church over the top in the area of giving. They are building a building and doing it without the usual high pressure campaign. The people have gotten on board and withour asking for pledges or one time gifts they are building a building. None of this is new material if you have been around church for a while but Cameron kind of takes the the Bible and Dave Ramsey get out of debt and it makes sense. He is not as funny or charismatic as Ramsey but he is a very good communicator at a time when people need some good financial counsel. Kind of small book with a lot to offer.
Excellent responses Aug 24, 2006
Several people have now read through the book, and have commented how eye-opening it has helped them to be become. We hope to offer a class and use this book as a basis for financial management. We are very pleased with the book.
Bad Biblical Interpretation Jun 11, 2005
This book has two goals (explicitly stated): 1. To get you out of debt and to live reasonably. 2. To tithe at least 10% of your income to the church, blindly.
Goal 1 is noble. Goal 2 severly misrepresents the Bible and the Gospel. According to Pastor Cameron, if you don't blindly tithe at least 10% to your local church, you are: 1. Robbing God 2. Under a curse
Why? Because of a faulty understanding/interpretation of Malachi Ch. 3.
He also preaches the evil "give-to-get" scheme/gospel that is getting ever more popular with some Evangelical preachers (again, based on misinterpretation).
(...) Christians should be practicing stewardship, where 100% of their time, treasure, and talent belongs to the Lord (not just 10% of their income). Also, the rich should give much more than 10%, and the poor and needy should actually RECEIVE (not give) tithes. That's the way it was practised in the Old Testament. It's a shame to extract money from the poor, in the name of God, with the "give-to-get" rationalization.
