Indeed, capitalism is an astounding belief that wickedness can bring out good. Many think that the greed and selfishness that capitalism runs on will bring out the greatest good of everyone - generosity, compassion and prosperity. This includes many in the modern church. They argue that while capitalism is based on greed and selfishness, it is the best way to teach people not to be selfish, but generous because it allows freedom. They argue that the prosperity generated by capitalism for the world is a blessing from God, and therefore moral, implying that God has an obligation to give people wealth.
The Bible makes it clear that God is Sovereign. Psalm 115:3 says: Our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased. Daniel 4:35 tells us: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?. Psalm 24:1 also tells us: The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein .
