Financial Inequality and God’s Economic Cycles

America’s tragic history of injustice towards minority groups has created a wealth gap that needs to be addressed and specific efforts need to be made to close it.

Ask Chuck: The Bible, Money, and Love

Dear Chuck,  I’m growing weary of our society’s overuse (and misuse) of the word love. I hear and see it in advertising, on social media and in conversations.
