Wesley Weekly #21: Capitalism and the Bible

Happy Groundhog Day!

Welcome to another exciting installment of Wesley Weekly! This week’s topic will probably last for a couple of weeks, so buckle up.

What You May Have Missed…

Last week we talked about what the Bible says about LGBTQA+ identities and how we can interpret these passages. It’s important to keep in mind the cultural and linguistic significance of these passages in order to understand them (hint: people who reference these passages often get this part wrong).

It’s also worth noting that goats are talked about in the Bible more often than homosexuality.

Also, remember David and Jonathan in First and Second Samuel.

The MSU Wesley Foundation has restructured our Patreon page and we would be grateful if you would check it out! If you would like to donate, please visit our Patreon!

This Week

This Thursday, we’ll be talking about capitalism and Christianity! They often get linked, but how are they related? Should they be seen as related?

If you’re interested in joining us, send us a message to get the link to the Zoom call!

Prayers and Concerns

We continue to pray for all of the students working and learning during this difficult time.

If there is anything you would like the community to pray for, send us a message, or reach out to us on our social media pages.

Student Thoughts

Q: “Would you move to another planet if given the chance?”

A: “It depends on the situation. Am I going to initially settle it or is it presettled? How much would it cost to get there, and would it end up being worth it in the long run?”

A: “Sure, why not? But I would also want to be able to visit Earth.”

A: “Probably not. Too far away.”

A: “That depends on a few things. Do I have to go by myself? Is there already stuff there (like is there a Meijer there or am I one of the first people there so we have to eat paste)? Do I have to wear a space suit whenever I want to leave my house? Also, how safe would the journey there be and could I ever come back to Earth? If it was a well-established place, I could bring someone with me, and the planet and the journey aren’t treacherous, then I’d definitely consider it.”

A: “No, because they don’t have Wi-Fi.”

A: “Absolutely. In fact, I want to be part of the first colony that mysteriously disappears, leaving people to wonder for centuries what happened. Like a space age Roanoke.”

If you have something you have written you would like us to post (poem, essay, etc.) or interesting questions you would like to ask us, send us a message on any of our social media or on our contacts page!

That’s all for this week’s fabulous edition of Wesley Weekly! Don’t forget to like and follow our Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter pages so you’ll never miss out!
