Do I need God if I have all this stuff?
In 1882, the great German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche made the controversial claim: 'God is dead'. Has God been killed by his strongest opponents?
Todays objection is a little less obvious - money. I don’t need you God because I have this stuff. ]live in a consumerist world dominated by money - but is it enough? Can the consumer life be disappointing? We explore the pleasures and dangers of money and discover something of greater meaning and significance.
In this episode, host Robert Martin speaks with Luke Nelson (pastor City on a Hill West) about money. Luke struggles through the quiz where he tries to estimate the cost of various household items. Luke shares about the pleasures and dangers of money and how through Jesus life has more meaning and significance.
