Money: The Last Taboo! And Why Many don’t have it! (This was written over a hundred years ago….)

“I say that you ought to get rich, and it is your duty to get rich.”
How many of my pious brethren say to me, ‘Do you, a Christian
minister, spend your time going up and down the country
advising young people to get rich, to get money?’  “yes, of
course I do.”

They say, “Isn’t that awful!  Why don’t you preach the gospel
instead of preaching about man’s making money?”  Because
to make money honestly is to preach the gospel.  That is the
reason.  The men who get rich may be the most honest men
you find in the community.

“Oh, “but say some young man here tonight, “I have been
told all my life that if a person has money he is very
dishonest and dishonorable and mean and contemptible.”
My friend, that is the reason why you have none, because
you have that idea of people.  The foundation of your faith
is altogether false,  Let me say here clearly… ninety-eight out
of one hundred of the rich men (and women) of America are
honest.  That is why they are rich.  That is why they are
trusted with money.  That is why they carry on great enterprises
and find plenty of people to work with them.

Say another young man, “I hear sometimes of men that get
millions of dollars dishonestly.”  Yes, of course you do, and so do
I.  But they are so rare a thing in fact that the newspapers talk
about them all the time as a matter of news until you get the
idea that all the other rich men got rich dishonestly.

My friend, you…drive me …out into the suburbs of Philadelphia,
and introduce me to the people who own their homes around
this great city, those beautiful homes with gardens and flowers,
those magnificent homes so lovely in their are, and I will introduce
you to the very best people in character as well as in enterprise
in our city…They that own their homes are made more honorable
and honest and pure, and true and economical and careful, by
owning the(m).

We preach against covetousness…in the pulpit…and use the
terms…”filthy lucre” so extremely that Christians get the idea that…
it is wicked for any man to have money.  Money is POWER, and
you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it!  You ought to
because you can do more good with it than you could do without it.
Money printed your Bibles, money builds your churches, money sends
your missionaries, and money pays your preachers…I say, then, you
ought to have money.  If you can honestly attain unto riches…it is your
…godly duty to do so.  It is an awful mistake of these pious people to
think you must be awfully poor in order to be pious.”

Russell H. Conwell, Acres of Diamonds

all of you to dare to alter your financial destiny and make 2011
the best year to come.  So when you’re really ready for a change

amazing and life changing message…give us a call 702 403 9109 and begin
