Evil Gifts?

Whoever heard that a gift of the Lord was evil?  Take the recent New York billionaire who used his wealth to abuse children and seduce young ladies.  Was his gift of wealth evil?  Does God lead us into temptation?

Temptation is part of life, but God’s gifts are not evil.  What we do with them can be evil.  I suspect the billionaire’s wealth was gained by taking advantage of others, either illegally or unfairly.  There was no concern for others—cheat, steal, oppress.  Do this and the oyster is yours.

There is a decided bias against wealth in the New Testament.  The New York Trader explains that by his life history.
