Faith vs Finance

Help! I've Been Blessed

SubscribeFaith vs Finance is a Christ-focused, not-for-profit ministry.

By God's grace we specialize in practical, spiritual support for Christians living in affluent societies around the world. Through seminars, books, videos, and the Faith vs Finance newsletter, we humbly plant seeds for the Holy Spirit to use to encourage individuals on their spiritual journeys.

Our ministry helps affluent Christians to address important questions such as:

Is there a secret to serving God
and money - simultaneously?

Is owning more than one
home spiritual suicide?

How can I raise godly children
in a materialistic society?

Is passive income just for
passive Christians

Are there any true Christians in the
richest 1% of people on Earth?

Through the generosity of God, we also supply our resources for free or at cost to churches and charitable organizations to assist with their ministries, fundraising and outreach activities.

 The Book

HELP! I’ve Been Blessed! is an easy-reading yet powerfully challenging exposé of the spiritual challenges faced by affluent Christians.

HELP! I’ve Been Blessed! will help you to:

  • Unclutter your heart so you can let Jesus in ... again,
  • Join the richest 1% of people on earth ... without losing your soul,
  • Raise godly children in a materialistic society,
  • Reignite your ‘first love’ with Jesus - even amidst the pressures (and the comforts) of affluence.

Julian Archer takes readers on a frighteningly honest, soul-baring journey into the world of a well-off, successful Christian businessman. He’s an outwardly blessed man with a sinister and secret struggle—an eternal life and death battle—to try and stop God’s blessings from becoming curses.

It isn’t fiction.

If you live in an affluent, materialistic society and you’re struggling to truly keep God at the centre of your life—to stay reliant on Him after he’s blessed you so much that sometimes you don’t feel you need Him —you will be challenged and inspired by reading this book.

However, if you’re not feeling blessed at the moment, because you’re struggling with relationships or poor health or insecurities or financial issues, then just bookmark this website and come back on a brighter day … because parts of the book could make you want to vomit!

Meet the Author

Author: Julian ArcherSomewhere between joining the globe’s wealthy in the revered “1% Club,” and becoming spiritually bankrupt, Jesus knocked on the door of my heart - again. Scrambling over the mountain of blessings that I'd piled up inside my heart, I pulled hard on the door handle, but it wouldn't budge. What now?

I was born in 1969 to serial-entrepreneur parents and joined the madness early on. I spent most of my short working life enthusiastically helping to expand their various ventures.

A decade or so of winging my way around the world in search of money—and God—often left my jet-lagged soul about eleven hours behind me.

For way too long I got my energy from making profit graphs soar upwards. This had some lovely perks, but it also seriously taxed my relationship with Jesus—not that I dared to admit it at the time as I was still an "active church member".

I desperately, but secretly, wanted to be converted--again--but life's distractions and pressures held me too tightly. God had blessed me with so much--family, career, friends, income, investments, vacations--that I was too busy with the blessings to make time for God. After years of searching, I finally did discover how to reignite my 'first love' with Jesus--and now I can't shut up about it!

Woven into God's tapestry for my life, I've also escorted mafia drug dealers around Italy, negotiated with terrorists in the Himalayas, patted tarantulas in Argentina, and eaten the salivary gland of a calf.

I now live in a house full of family and friends in northern New South Wales, Australia.

Writing a "How to" book, and running Faith vs Finance seminars, may give me the appearance of being an expert, but nothing could be further from the truth. I am simply a completely and totally undeserving recipient of a timely message—an encouraging wake-up call—for anyone who’s affluent enough to be heading for spiritual bankruptcy.

I love to snowboard, scuba dive and mountain bike, but they're all secondary to my number one passion—helping people to fully open their heart's door to Jesus. May the Lord continue to give me every breath, every heartbeat, and every ounce of strength that I need to humbly serve Him wherever He calls.
