Reviews - What do customers think about Money and Wealth in the New Millennium?
A little goofy May 13, 2008
I agreed with many of the premises of this book. For example I too believe Christians should avoid debt. And I often worry about the stability of the dollar. But as my wife and I read this book I began to think this intelligent man was nuts.
He is the sort of guy who believes the New World Order is secretly controlling the world around us. He also believes he can map financial events to the end times.
It is too bad the book is so Goofy. I do believe Christians need to start living on a cash bases, but I think the message is lost in the goofiness.
A Must Read for the End Times Nov 13, 2007
Norm Franz has written a book on wealth, the economic structure of the US and of the Bible's perspective on both, among other observations. I believe that Norm has written truth that Christians need to know in order to rightly understand God's will for you and your finances especially in the days we are currently living in.
Don't be fooled by those who say the the author misunderstands the scripture he quotes. He does not. I would urge the reader to consider his observations and truths and cross-check his biblical references. Do your own research within the pages of the Bible; not other so-called ordained books. I believe you'll find out that his observations are correct. We have much to learn about what God says about finances and wealth.
The end times are a scary business, and this author is trying to help you understand the right place for a Christian to stand on issues of money, debt and financial attitude. He gets it right. Please read this book. You'll be glad you did.
Full of Inaccuracies and Blatant Misrepresentations! Jun 30, 2006
The only reason I'm wasting my time with this review is to warn you about this book. The author "quotes" from Scripture to try to support his case but as I don't want to write a book here, I'll only address the most blatant inaccuracies up to page 13!
On page 1, he quotes Isaiah 14:12-14 saying that it was a reference to Lucifer. If you check your bible, you will clearly see Isaiah was referring to the King of Babylon, who was threatening King Hezekiah at the time that this passage refers to.
Page 2: again the author quotes Ezekiel 28:13-16 implying that this was a reference to Lucifer. Check your bibles and you will see that Ezekiel was talking about the King of Tyre, that great trading community of which God was accusing of unfair trade practices.
Then on the same page, showing his ignorance for what original sin means, the author goes on to say that it had its beginnings in Lucifer himself while he was conducting business activities in Heaven!! I recommend the works of St. Augustine if you want to understand where the theology of "original sin" had its origins. Incredibly, the author got all this from misquoting out of context and clearly misreading Ezekiel!
Now to page 13 where the author asserts that God Himself "put gold in the land of Havilah before He put Adam in the garden, because gold was intended to be used as the money of the garden economy" quoting Genesis 2:11-12, 15. What use is money in the garden of Eden where everything you could ever want is free? Who would you trade with? What possible value is gold in Eden? Incredible!
At least I learned one thing from this book: make sure you know your scripture well and don't take any self-proclaimed "messenger of the covenant" 's word for granted. Check and re-check and above all, read and know your bible!
