Bitcoin and the Bible with Will Forsyth, David Forsyth, and Simon Pranaitis

Hosted ByWill Forsyth, David Forsyth, and Simon Pranaitis

A show for Christians who love God’s Word, care about sound money, and want to learn about the moral case for Bitcoin.

Implications of the Fall

In the second episode of Season 2 Back to the Bible, Simon, David, and Will resume their survey through God’s Word to refine the Biblical worldview with regard to money and then repeatedly answer two questions:

Does Bitcoin measure up to God’s standard for sound money?
For a Christian who obeys God’s will for sound money, is Bitcoin the best option?

This episode builds on the discussion from Episode 8 regarding how Genesis provides us the foundation for how God views work and money. The focus in this episode is on the implications of the Fall which stands as THE defining event in human history. Adam and Eve’s sin has disrupted God’s design for humanity’s work and money. To understand money and specifically Bitcoin, we must understand what changed in man and the world when sin and death entered the Garden of Eden. 
Summary

Sin has distorted God’s good design of human work
We are forced to account for humanity’s propensity to lie, steal, cheat, rather than simply focusing on productive cooperative work together. This can be difficult and expensive.
Bitcoin provides the best monetary system to incentivize rational action and cooperative work that rewards legitimate work and punishes bad actors.
Without the fiat based systems support of bad business, our economic system would have more capacity to police itself and allow legitimate economic initiatives to thrive.
