BARNA: GOD'S TRUTH

George Barna from his book Turning Vision Into Action states, "Abraham was successful until God showed him that material wealth was poverty in eternity. Moses had it made as the adopted son of the Egyptian pharaoh, but he discovered that the finest clothing, the best education and a daily regimen of well-prepared meals were meaningless unless life was devoted to God’s desires. Paul was a social climber in the ranks of the religious leaders, but his encounter with God taught him that success was not based on routine, tradition, contacts, forensic skill or intelligence" (page 71).
