when it comes to money, the picture is cloudier. What does the Bible or the Koran actually say about money? Does God want us to own a fleet of yachts? Or does he (or she) think suffering and hardship is noble? Happily, the consensus among most religious leaders seems to be that the Almighty does not want you to live off food stamps and is quite happy for you to drive a Porsche. But Scriptures say that a portion of your earnings should be returned through gifts to charity and offerings to the church — what some denominations call tithing.
The article goes on to talk about Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and what they each teach about money. I’m not sure their commentary on Christianity is 100% accurate, but it is an interesting read nonetheless.
