The world's views on Baby Boomers:
Have you come across the term baby boomer? This is a term which is popular used for those people who were born between 1946 and 1964. These were actually the post World War II years and at that point of time there was a baby boom.
This popular term was coined by Landon Jones. He actually used the term baby boomer in his book. The name of his book was Great Expectations: America and the Baby Boom Generation. There is a unique feature related to the generation of baby boomers.They usually consider themselves to be a special generation which is quite different from the other generations that have come before them. There are lots of people who are quite interested to learn about the
With its laid-back way of life, Byron Bay is a tourist hotspot for sun, sand and sea lovers but despite the crowds, the township retains its charm. Located on the North Coast of NSW (about 800km north of Sydney), Byron Bay is the perfect place to unwind for those who prefer bikinis, sarongs and a sense of the bohemian. It is well-known for its relaxed alternative lifestyle, spectacular beaches (for surfers and swimmers) and beautiful scenery. Byron Bay is also a popular place for festivals and large scale events. Some of these include the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, the Writers Festival and Splendour in the Grass. http://fanbox.com/gcwv
The East Coast Blues and Roots Festival is held annually and spans 5 days over Easter commencing on Good Friday eve and concluding on Easter Monday. This year more than 100 international and local artists performed at the spectacular event. Some of the big name performers include Sinead O'Conner, Keith Urban, John Fogerty, KT Tunstall and too many more to name. The Byron Bay East Coast Blues and Roots Music Festival attract around 70,000 people each year, so if you are planning to visit during that time you must book your accommodation early.
Being of good stewardship:
All that we have and all that we are has come from God. He has blessed us with money and possessions, and he has given each of us specific talents and abilities. We have been called to be good stewards - to use our money, our time and our abilities as best we can to benefit God's kingdom.
Giving tithes and offerings demonstrates our obedience to God, and the recognition that all we have has come from him. Giving our time in the Lord's work, whether in ministry, helping those in need or greeting people at the Church door, shows our determination to follow the Lord's teachings.
Why is it then, if we are happy to faithfully give our time and money, that so many Christians seem to have an issue when it comes to discussing wealth creation.
There seem to be two distinct lines of thought - the one promoted by many of the big name TV evangelists who promote the "prosperity" and "name it and claim it" teachings and the other viewpoint of many of the conservative Church officials who push the opinion that seeking wealth is ungodly.
Unfortunately both of these viewpoints seem to run contrary to the word, and to Jesus' teachings about stewardship.
The "prosperity" teachers promote the idea that whatever you give to God, he will return to you many times over. Although this is close to the teaching of stewardship, which says that you should seek to multiply whatever God gives you, so that you can give him more back in return. It has been distorted, in as much as the actual motivation behind giving promoted by the prosperity teachers is self based (if I give more, God will give me more) instead of focusing on Christ. There is a huge difference between giving to get more, and working to increase your means so that you can give more to further the works of the kingdom.
Some now try to imply that if you are not prosperous, then your walk with the Lord must be lacking in some area, and others at the other end of the spectrum are always making condemning statements about the evils of being rich.
We need to really look at what the word says, and the examples that Jesus gave.
I firmly believe that the enemy wants to deter us from aiming to invest and make our wealth grow, as he does not want us to be successful. He doesn't want us making lots of money that we can use for the Lord's work. He doesn't want us to be able to fund mission outreaches or to feed the poor or to fund Christian satellite TV channels. Some Christians seem to have the misconception that being wealthy is evil and being poor is holy. There is nothing holy about being poor. God doesn't want his children to be in poverty. A rich person has far more power at their disposal to be able to help where financial assistance is needed than a poor person. At the same time though we need to make sure that our motivation for creating wealth is to "get so we can give" as opposed to the prosperity teachers notion that we should "give so we can get". As long as we do not idolise money, and retain the truth that all we have has come from God anyway, then there is no need to feel any guilt about how much money we make.
