The Bible on Capitalism, Communism, and Socialism. Acts 4:32-37. October 18, 2010.

Acts is a transition book. It is a narrative description of some very important concepts about the Christian life in the Church age, but it is not a prescription. We see the transition from the Age of Israel to the Church Age. We see the dispensation of the Mosaic Law transition into the dispensation of Grace. And we see the transition of the church from mainly Jewish to Gentile.

In this lesson we learn the Biblical concept of money, labor, and profit. We find out if the Bible says that "money is the root of all evil" and why the early Christians in Acts sold all their resources and layed them at the apostles' feet. Is this the example of what Christians are to do today?

While studying the book of Acts (4:32 through 5:16), a Biblical view dealing with economics was presented. Therefore, this study on the topic was prompted.

The Bible is not an economics text book, but it does have a lot to say on the topic. This series will focus on the Biblical framework details of economics. In the Bible, economics is not only a study of money, but it is also a study of value and labor. Money can be a tool, a medium of exchange, for goods and services. Value systems brings into play ethical standards, some way of making decisions, and priorities.

This series is part of the "2010 Acts" series. Since it is also an important study by itself, we are presenting this portion as a separate series.
