18. Social Security

QUESTIONS:

1. There was a time when there were 42 workers for every 1 person on social security. We are getting close to the time when there will be only 2 people for every 1 person on social security. What does that mean economically? (162)

2. Does the Bible speak to the issue of retirement? What does it say about it? Are we ever supposed to move to a time of unproductivity? How can we make sure if we do retire from a set job that we maintain a high level of Christ-honoring productivity? (163)

3. Who designed for us to take care of the elderly? What is the role of the family? (163-164) 

4. When God said be fruitful and multiply in Genesis 1:28 and encouraged us to raise children according to Proverbs 31:28, that would “rise and call their elderly parents blessed,” what does us mean for us in taking care of parents in older years, or how we raise our children? (166)
