The financial Crisis! Gods Advice given in the 1900s goes unheeded


The Total consequence of greed.is the fall we are experiencing at this time around the world .
If only the world could have heeded the advice given centuries ago By Ellen G white.
Below are some quotations from her writings made in the 1900s

Her holy spirit writing says:

From a worldly point of view, money is power; but from the Christian standpoint, love is power. Intellectual and spiritual strength are involved in this principle. Pure love has special efficacy to do good, and can do nothing but good. It prevents discord and misery and brings the truest happiness. Wealth is often an influence to corrupt and destroy; force is strong to do hurt; but truth and goodness are the properties of pure love. {AH 195.3}.

"Wealth gotten in haste shall be diminished; but he that gathereth by labor shall have increase." {AH 391.8}
"The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death." {AH 391.9}
"The borrower is servant to the lender." {AH 391.10}
"He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure."
392
{AH 391.11}
The eighth commandment condemns . . . theft and robbery. It demands strict integrity in the minutest details of the affairs of life. It forbids overreaching in trade and requires the payment of just debts or wages." {AH 392.1}
Shun Debt.--Many poor families are poor because they spend their money as soon as they receive it. {AH 392.4}
You must see that one should not manage his affairs in a way that will incur debt. . . . When one becomes involved in debt, he is in one of Satan's nets, which he sets for souls. . . . {AH 392.5}
Abstracting and using money for any purpose, before it is earned, is a snare.
393
{AH 392.6}
Words to One Who Lived Beyond His Income.-- You ought not to allow yourself to become financially embarrassed, for the fact that you are in debt weakens your faith and tends to discourage you; and even the thought of it makes you nearly wild. You need to cut down your expenses and strive to supply this deficiency in your character. You can and should make determined efforts to bring under control your disposition to spend means beyond your income. {AH 393.1}

The Curse of Hoarded Wealth.--Those who acquire wealth for the purpose of hoarding it leave the curse of wealth to their children. It is a sin, an awful, soul-periling sin for fathers and mothers to do this, and this sin extends to their posterity. Often the children spend their means in foolish extravagance, in riotous living, so that they become beggars. They know not the value of the inheritance they have squandered. Had their fathers and mothers set them a proper example, not in hoarding but in imparting their wealth, they would have laid up for themselves treasure in heaven and received a return even in this world of peace and happiness and in the future life eternal riches.
"The deceitfulness of riches." The love of riches has an infatuating, deceptive power. Too often those who possess worldly treasure forget that it is God who gives them power to get wealth. They say, "My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth." Deut. 8:17. Their riches, instead of awakening gratitude to God, lead to the exaltation of self. They lose the sense of their dependence upon God and their obligation to their fellow men. Instead of regarding wealth as a talent to be employed for the glory of God and the uplifting of humanity, they look upon it as a means of serving themselves. Instead of developing in man the attributes of God, riches thus used are developing in him the attributes of Satan. The seed of the word is choked with thorns.
