The Danger of Affluence

The Danger of Affluence from Randy Alcorn on Vimeo.

In October of 2012 Randy spent a weekend at The Cove, The Billy Graham Association's conference center in Asheville, NC. Over the weekend Randy was interviewed by Dr. John Akers on the theme "Four Central Truths of A Biblical Worldview."
Believers in other countries often comment that it is hard to be a believer in the United States because we are so affluent; there is so much temptation. Randy affirms what Scripture teaches, that it is hard for a rich man to come into the kingdom of God because a rich man has other things he can depend on besides God. As believers we must be wary of this danger of affluence and be more concerned with storing up treasures in Heaven.
