A lot of us look at the degradation of our society and wonder why. Why is the country headed away from God instead of towards him? Part of it is driven by the things we support, even if we do not know we are supporting them.
Did you know that companies sometimes use their profits to support things such as human trafficking, pornography, violent entertainment, gambling and such? Most businesses are not supporting anti-Godly activities because they believe in anti-Godly behaviors. Why then do they support such things? They support them because they believe it is in the best interest of company growth and profits. They are pushed into one direction or another based on how best to increase stock prices and stock ownership.
It is likely, in my opinion, that if we invest in companies that are supporting Godly things and there is enough of us, we can have an impact on the moral compass direction of Wall Street. Even if they don’t care one way or the other about morality, they will conform themselves in the best way possible to promote stock ownership. If Godly believers join together, the impact will be huge. There are a lot more of us and if money dries up for ungodly behavior and wells up for Godly behavior, businesses will clamor for Godliness even if it is only for profit.
If we invest our dollars in these companies, are we not also supporting the things they support? Even though we might have our money in mutual funds or a 403(b)/401(k), those monies are invested in companies. Isaiah 5:20 says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil…” I believe that we shouldn’t invest in evil and call it good or claim that it is good when it’s really not. Do you agree? Do you know what your investments support? If there was a way to find out if your investments are “clean”, would you want to know? Even some mutual fund companies that claim to have a high moral and ethical posture, may not actually be “clean.”
There is a web-based service that can impartially show what an investment supports either directly, or indirectly. We want to help you have a “clean” investment option. I believe that we can show Wall Street that biblical values are important if we start putting our money into the hands of companies that support biblical principles. Wouldn’t the country be a better place if corporate America started supporting biblical principles? If you agree, let me know. I will do what I can to help you communicate your biblical principles with the dollars you invest.
