Are you a 5 Talent guy/gal or will your Ox get stoned? Weird question, huh?

Consider that God is so serious about our investments that Jesus complimented those that doubled their money. (2) And He is equally as serious about the quality of our assets, that if they hurt people those should be destroyed, i.e. the Ox gets stoned to death. (3) Jesus once told His disciples to be street-wise as snakes and yet innocent as doves. He gives us no wiggle room in between. He expects wisdom, creativity, and growth. We should not hide our money in the
name of safety. (4) And He expects innocence, we cannot present Him profits earned from activities that harmed people or the environment. (5) Therefore, we should invest shrewdly, reach for great returns, and do good work in the process.*

The issue at hand is: can we invest in stocks of good companies that do not harm people and still capture investment results competing with common indexes? Our friends at WealthShield built a stock index demonstrating the possibility of returns to answer this question.

Given the data, we believe the answer is yes, click here find out why.
