Yeah, I really liked that approach. And I'm even an atheist. LOL

As an anti-theist myself, I concur and agree with his approach as well. Though I do not agree with his Christianity beliefs, I agree with his morality.

Nice, but the brief "article" doesn't point out anything about monetary policy.

He stated that Isaiah specifically mentions debasing the coinage?! That's a real clincher.You should push that quote to all religious friends and make the connection with the paper 'dollar' (paper ticket money).The dollar was defined as 371 and a 1/4,grains of silver.

The bible is actually why I've refused to ever take a loan out or be in debt to anyone.

Yes, it does.

When God is pronouncing judgement on Israel, one of His complaints in Isaiah is debasement of silver and wine (wine was used as money too):


Isaiah 1:21-22 NASB

How the faithful city has become a harlot,
She who was full of justice!
Righteousness once lodged in her,
But now murderers.

Your silver has become dross,
Your drink diluted with water.

Your rulers are rebels
And companions of thieves;
Everyone loves a bribe
And chases after rewards.
They do not defend the orphan,
Nor does the widow's plea come before them.


God is not pleased with dishonest scales:

Proverbs 20:23 NASB

Differing weights are an abomination to the LORD,
And a false scale is not good.



God is concerned with money. It is not just a side issue, it is very important:

Proverbs 16:11 NASB

A just balance and scales belong to the LORD;
All the weights of the bag are His concern.


Leviticus 19:36 NASB

You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin; I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from the land of Egypt.


Exodus 20:15 NASB

You shall not steal.

This is really good stuff.It's sure to get religious people thinking hard.

When I talked to Ron Paul in person and talked about my promotion of alternative currencies I was surprised when he brought up the Bible. Obviously Paul is a very religious guy and he deserves every single one of the hardcore Christian votes.

Bump. Cite these verses to your evangelical friends. Make them understand Ron Paul is the only one on that stage who understands that the Bible prescribes sound money.

Ron called it "Biblical money". That is genius. Every time an evangelical tells you he is voting for Cain, tell them you can't vote for Cain because he doesn't believe in Biblical money....only Ron does. Hit Christians where it hurts.

Christians are VERY persuadable if they understand that the Bible teaches something that politicians are ignoring.

More from Gary North: The Bible mandates free market capitalism. It is anti-socialist. The proof is here: 10,000 pages of exposition, verse by verse. Free. (http://www.garynorth.com/public/department57.cfm)

Thanks for your #9 post AB.

After listing those verses from God, I end my communication with a contrasting statement from man:

“As far as auditing the Fed, in the vernacular of my grandfather, I does not care.” - Herman Cain
