The view held by Christians traditionally, is that human beings have a qualified right over money and property. Or, put more precisely, God has the ultimate ownership but we have stewardship of money, property, and our talents. The resources of the earth are held in trust for a divine purpose. Thus our relationship to money and property may by custom or law be defined as ownership but is really a conditional form of trusteeship. In the true sense of the Old English word “steward” we are responsible for the prudent management of an estate that is not our own. - The Trinity Forum: Money-Medium of exchange or Mammon?
Let us go back to the man who says that a thing cannot be wrong unless it hurts some other human being. He quite understands that he must not damage the other ships in a convoy, but he honestly thinks that what he does to his own ship is simply his own business. But does it not make a great difference whether his ship is his own property or not? Does it not make a great difference whether I am, so to speak, the landlord of my own mind and body, or only a tenant, responsible to the real landlord? If somebody else made me, for his own purposes, then I shall have a lot of duties that I should not have if I simply belonged to myself. - C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
