Among my profound Quotes stands, “You cannot help the poor by being one of them”

In that regard I thought of sharing this excerpt from Russell H. Conwell in his book, Acres of Diamonds… It is one that challenged my view for money and christianity and I would really appreciate your view  in the comments section below….. It reads

We preach against covetousness…in the pulpit…and use the terms…“filthy lucre” so extremely that Christians get the idea that…it is wicked for any man to have money. Money is power, and you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it!

You ought because you can do more good with it than you can without it.

Money printed your Bibles, money builds your churches, money sends your missionaries, and money pays your preachers….I say, then, you ought to have money. If you can honestly attain unto riches…it is your… godly duty to do so. It is an awful mistake of these pious people to think you must be awfully poor in order to be pious..
