Thirdly, if economics is about providing needed goods and services, and if the goal of Biblical economics is to glorify God, then it is not unreasonable to conclude that ultimately, economics is critical and central to the dominion mandate. Whoever controls the means of production in a society also controls the wealth of that society, and therefore the power of a society. If God promises to bless the faithful as they labor unto Him, then wealth and power will flow to Christians over time. Therefore Christian economics must be self-consciously dedicated to extending the reign of Christ over every area of life. Eventually, the glory of God will fill the earth, and Christians will own everything.
