  1. This guy is a smooth talker. The stock market is a form of gambling. Jesus said

    Matthew 6:19-21 Treasures in Heaven
    19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    Matthew 19:2 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

  2. Is it good for Christians to trade in forex? Since there are no companies involved but nations currencies are at trade? Will it be ethical and wise to trade them or invest in them?

  3. I have a question related to this topic – I am interested in forex trade (foreign currencies). Many people say that it is gambling, but people who do trade there say that it is not. And it is true in my opinion – you do research the history, you do watch the news and you really try to "predict" the trend just as you do it in the stock market. But it is different that you do not invest in any company but you buy some amount of money and then you sell it or you sell and then buy. The system is similar to stock market system. I am at university and I am thinking of a way to get some money – I am studying math and economics so I'd like to do something related to my studies. But I definitely want to do something which is right in God's eyes. Thank you.

  4. I used to be a big stock market guy. I’ve dialed it back to just old reliable companies and treasury bonds. Day-trading penny stocks is gambling.

  5. If an activity is wrong because the participants in that activity wants only themselves to win and all the others to lose then doesn't that make all competitions to be wrong including sporting competitions?

  6. Potential Question – where do our continuationist brothers draw the line with charismatics? Or is it wiser to default to cessationist convictions? Or what do Southern seminary professors believe is a biblical response to the word of Faith heresy?

  7. Wow, i love that "you work in order to give" and therefore money is not an enemy. If God blesses you with it use it God's way to bring honor and glory to Him(its not your money its God's). And i also love Pastor John Piper's message about abundance, you are prosperous so that you will have enough and the rest of what you have, use to help others. please continue making videos like this that will inspire christians like me to grow more in my relationship with God and read more The Bible and devour it, meditate on it day and night. Oh thank you God for Southern seminary. Godbless you more and more. -Zini,lots of love from Philippines.

  8. Question: recently I’ve been talking to some people about complimentarianism and egalitarianism. The question that was brought up was this- is it permissible for a woman to share insight from scripture in front of the congregation on a Sunday morning church service (whether by sermon or not)? Thanks and I appreciate your ministry!

  9. Why is gambling not a risk because the winner wants to win alone but the stock market is a risk because the investors don't wish that they alone gets dividends? Why ain't both of them two different forms of risks with different dynamics at play for each? What do the dictionaries say? Do the dictionaries agree with the speakers definitions of 'risk' and 'gambling'?

    What about when I spend money at a business that is having a promotion and I have to put my receipt (or whatever else) in a box or whatever else to win a prize through the business having a raffle of some sort? Is that gambling? Why? And is it right or wrong?
