The elections are upon us. It’s hard to turn on a t.v., radio or look at anything on the internet without hearing opinions of which party, the democrats or republicans, are going to do a better job of running the country. One side is about the government knowing what is best for all of us, while the other side is about individual freedoms. The parties seem to be spreading wider and wider apart. The democratic party is now based totally on liberal agendas while the republican party is trying to become based totally on conservative agendas. What does this have to do with BRI- Biblically Responsible Investing? Everything.
Choosing to be BRI is much like voting for the conservative agenda because BRI seeks to align itself with companies that have demonstrated they are conservative. If a company traded on an exchange is publicly known to violate Biblical principles, Biblically Responsible Investing strives to stay clear from buying those companies directly, or indirectly through a separate managed account or mutual fund. Not all investments and investment platforms can be screened, but we strive to do the best we can given the available investment options and platform limitations. Christian Financial Advisors uses third party sources to screen investments.
If you have an account with a company other than Christian Financial Advisors and are interested in knowing if it is Biblically Responsible, contact us for an evaluation to find out!
