What is the Biblical view of Gold and Silver?
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be;
The first mention of Gold in the Bible is in Genesis 2:11-12. Gold in the land of Havilah gets the endorsement of being "good". God created gold to be the foundation of an economic system that would be solid, stable and not subject to manipulation. No inflation, no deflation, and no monetary crisis. History has called this biblically oriented monetary system, "The Gold Standard", meaning an economic system that is based on a specific, established amount of gold or silver.
God is the author of the gold standard, not man. In the Scriptures,
He established the weights, the measurements and set the value of gold
and silver. He created this monetary law in order to protect the poor and
to keep the greed and manipulative power of Rulers under control.
There is no Hebrew word for money. Silver was used for normal transactions and gold, which was worth twenty times as much as silver, was used more as a store of value. The money changers, (mentioned in the New Testament), were cheating the Jews, who had come from all over the Mediterranean region to visit their Temple, of fair currency exchanges. These are the people that Jesus Christ drove from the Temple.
I would recommend reading; "The Making of America" which you can get on Amazon.
This book by W. Cleon Skousen, gives an excellent education on money and the Constitution.
