This essay examines whether there are any forms of money (and monetary systems) that are potentially morally good according to Christian ethics. To do so requires looking at God’s ethics regarding material resources, and then seeing what part, if any, God intends money to serve in the human economy. I conclude that there exists at least one form of money, namely silver, that if used in accord with God’s material resource ethics, is morally good money.
