I don't understand the connection between our faith and nationalism, so while it's funny, I feel disconnected from it.

What's interesting to me is that the the nonsense that the "investment banker" says is exactly the same thing that I hear from other people, in informal conversations, who try to deny that financial chaos and duress is imminent.

It's not reasoned, logical, doesn't rely on any sort of fundamental market principle, it IS as he says "market sentiment," a psychologically maintained and illusory fantasy that lives of comfort, security, and relative ease are un-threatened. The "ostrich defense" has become quite en vogue.

I fear the sentiment may soon cease to buoy global financial hubris.

Further, I might surmise that any "disconnection" one might feel from the coming crisis will grow far more immediate in the coming years, when jobs, homes, loans, and our way of life come grinding to a harrowing, quite-acutely-faith-testing halt.

I get that. But is it supposed to alter my day-to-day?

I also found myself laughing to the point of tears when viewing the interview. However, the reality of the moment is that the average guy on the street hasn't got a clue what these two guys are talking about. But even worse, the person who is mortgaged to the hilt, and carrying on a day-to-day life as though everything is fine, may be in for a rude awakening. One can hope for the best. But at the same time, it might be prudent to prepare for the worst. Faith need not be foolish.

Bring it on. I'm tired of the tight-rope walk.

I'm with Jeff - bring it on! As our granddaughter stated emphatically: "Jesus, you need to come down here!"
Overcomers want to prepare for that imminent eventuality. If He comes in our lifetime, we want our last will and testament to specify that our remaining estate be used for His glory. If all believers are gone, who or what organization is our next best bet? Any ideas?

Uh, okay, everybody just keep on borrowing and spending. Sad, but that's the secret to a robust U.S. economy..... Not good biblical financial stewardship either. Once again, culture and Christianity clash.

Bo

Culture and Christianity clash indeed! America is overdue God's judgment. Boy, are Canada and Mexico in for a surprise!
Ponder this: Are we conditioned by our culture? Is the Bible conditioned by our culture? Is culture logical? Are our thoughts bent by current culture or by our backgrounds? What changes culture?
