45. It must be a cultural thing. The expression was Christianity 101 when I was growing up.

Some old-fashioned, liberal Christians do believe that and feel humbled. One stated an analogy to the 'you can't take it with you' saying and the 'consider the lilies of the field' verse.

She expressed it as "The money I have was given by God, but it belongs to Him, not me. It's not for me to hold but to pass from my hands to others."

Conservatives are dedicated to wiping out that form of Christianity. They have even set up a Wiki, IIRC, to delete all of the 'liberal, collectivist' verses from the Bible. A google search on verses now show a lot of garbage results to push conservatism and one has to scroll to find the original text.
