The Christian, Financial Counseling Page

Handling money God's way!

Created and maintained by

The purpose of this web page is to guide you through various money issues from God's perspective.  The Holy Bible contains at least 2,350 verses dealing directly with wealth.  Many of these verses give us specific instructions for how to handle our money.  Over my years of financial counseling, I have noticed, time and time again, that when you handle your money God's way, He blesses your effort.  He may choose to bless it with money or material posessions, but He may also choose to bless it in some other way.  God didn't promise how He would bless us when we do things His way; but, He did promise that He would bless us.  Everything on this page is presented from a Christian perspectve.  The articles here offer more philisophical rather than practical guidance.  For actual techniques, methods and step-by-step guidance, please read the articles on my Financial Page at

If you:
God's wisdom can teach you what to do and how to deal with it.  Through the Bible, God teaches us how to improve our financial lives.

If you:
God's wisdom can each you what to do and how to do it.  Through the Bible, God teaches us how to best use the money He has given us.

On this web page, you will find various articles dealing with a variety of financial topics.  I have, to the best of my ability, written all of these articles from a biblical perspective.  Some articles are for people who have financial struggles, but there are also articles for people who have been blessed with a lot of money and want to use it God's way.  Rich, poor, struggling or not, the Bethel Financial Counseling Page is here to help you. So, look through the list of available articles and find ones that pertain to you or that look interesting, then start reading...
