Who Provides Wealth?

What is Gods response to the Darwinian evolutionary theory “survival of the fittest” as it pertains to wealth? (Darwin, Charles, On the Origin of the Species, Chapter 4.)

And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth, (Deut. 8:17.)

Another way of putting this is found in the ancient American scripture known as the Book of Mormon. An antichrist known as Korihor taught:

…every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and every man conquered according to his strength. (Alma 30:17.)

Gods reply is beautiful in its simplicity and is the real secret to a wealth:

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. (Deut. 8:18.)

The Book of Mormon prophet Jacob further teaches:

But before ye seek for riches, seek ye first the kingdom of God.

And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to do good – to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and administer relief to the sick and the afflicted. (Jacob 2:17-18.)
