Economic Lessons for everyone for God's Glory
Lesson 1 | And God Created Economics from Compass Cinema on Vimeo.
HT: Justin Taylor at the Gospel Coalition.
Now, if only President Obama, and many (most ?) other politicians would understand these basic principles!!
See their web-site "Economics For Everybody"
The "Cultural Mandate" that R. C. Sproul, Jr. mentions is found in Genesis 1:26-28, which is basically that God has created mankind in His own image and He has given us the world to manage and take care of; to be good stewards over His creation.
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28
I look forward to this series and am going to use it in teaching my children. I hope the rest is as good as this is. I might not agree with everything later, but so far, this is good material.
