Lecture 5, The Rich and the Poor:

It would be easy to blame the rich for all the problems of the poor. Sentiments like that gave great momentum to the spread of Marxism. But does the Bible give reason for that sentiment? In the book of James, we read of the rich oppressing the poor by dragging them to court. What does the Scripture teach about wealth and poverty? Is money the root of all evil? Continuing this series on Themes from James, Dr. Sproul explains what Scripture teaches about “The Rich and the Poor.”
