According to Darrow Miller, “philosophic pragmatism” determines that something is valuable if it is functional; it is good if it works! Unfortunately, many Christians have, perhaps unconsciously, denied the Biblical virtues of truth, beauty and goodness for utilitarianism. Great Commission Utilitarianism refers specifically to a prevailing Christian view of work and wealth. In this view, work is separated from God’s purpose and viewed as a necessary evil, or even a curse. Wealth is detached from God’s glory and is part of God’s intentions for families, communities and even nations. These views of work and wealth are not Biblical, as we will see.
