I too like Dave Ramsey.. but have heard some people take some knocks on his "protestant positions" on things. I have read his books, listen to his CD's and radio show, and read his blog as well. Not once have I ever come across something that didn't jive with my (deep) Catholic roots. Maybe I missed something.
I can honestly say that his books have changed my life for the better, and made me look at money in a different way. I believe God doesn't want us to be slaves to debt and poor all our lives. I believe that, if you are a good person, you have an obligation to get yourself in a financial position to do good things with money. Some of the most blessed people in the bible were wealthy (Good Samaritan had to have been pretty well off).
Just some things to think about. You can also check out Veritas Financial Ministries (www.veritasfinancialministries.com), which is a catholic financial group.
Have you, or anyone else here, taken both courses? I would prefer to support a catholic program, but don't want to cheat our parishioners out of some valuable info they could have gotten from a protestant (provided there is no protestant slant).
All things equal, I would rather follow the catholic program, so I'm hoping someone can recommend Veritas!
