“YOUR FINANCES IN PERILOUS TIMES"

BIBLICAL FINANCIAL PRINCIPLES SEMINAR

"Your Finances in Perilous Times Seminar " is based on the seminar CFM wrote and presented world-wide in conjunction with our longstanding working relationship with Larry Burkett and Christian Financial Concepts (now Crown Financial Ministries).

This Seminar is approved for 5 CEUs from Life Changing University and the Logos Christian College, Graduate School and University.

Background:

  • At at time when financial conflicts cause many personal problems including more than 90% of all divorces, it's vital that Christians return to the wisdom of God's Word.
  • The Bible contains about 500 verses on prayer and a little less than 500 verses on faith, yet over 2350 verses that address in very practical, specific ways how to earn, save, spend, invest, and give money. Two-thirds of the parables deal with money. The Bible has more to say about money than heaven and hell combined, even more to say about money than salvation. The Bible has more to say about money than any other subject except love.
  • Biblical financial principles applied yesterday, they apply today, and they will apply tomorrow. God's principles apply if you have a little or a lot, if you are single or married, if you are young or young-at-heart.
