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.

In the Beginning – Bitcoin as Money

Simon, Will, and David begin building the moral case for Bitcoin by looking first at Bitcoin as money.

James 2:8–9 “If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.”

The usage of the story of “Bitcoin Island” provides a simple way to understand the beauty and utility of the Bitcoin ledger.

Here’s a wonderful video that helps visualize Bitcoin and how blocks are formed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBC-nXj3Ng4
