Have you ever wondered if your investments give glory to God? Luke 21:15 says, “For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.” Now more than ever, we see this with faith-based investing. Christian shareholders are speaking out in some of the world’s biggest companies, seeking to change policies that oppose biblical principles. Today, host Rob West talks with investing expert and CEO of Inspire Investing, Robert Netzly, about shareholder engagement and the battle for biblical principles in the boardroom.


·      Many companies take corporate profits and use them to advocate for certain causes or issues, generally representative of the stances of the executives or the board and not the stances of the shareholders as a whole.


·      Netzly talks about partnering with friends and investors to challenge big corporations in their support of certain movements, and how they succeed in making biblically guided changes.


·      Many faith-based conservatives have taken issue with the stances of Chevron, Costco, and especially Amazon; Netzly talks about how he helps find resolutions with these companies.


·      Rob mentions that the other side to faith-based investing is embracing the companies that make positive impacts on the world, and recognizing the good that they do.

Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on today’s program:


·      I’m going through a divorce and need to remove my husband as a beneficiary on my trust, but I’ve been having no luck reaching my trust attorney. I’m 72 with many medical concerns from cancer, and I need an attorney who is responsive and responsible. What do I do? (Rob suggests finding an attorney who is a Certified Kingdom Advisor on


·      My mom has a lot of substantial investments and would like to donate all her money to charities when she dies. I’ve suggested she go ahead and donate while she’s living. I don’t want to be giving foolish advice, so what are some things I need to know as far as financial reserves, taxes, and things like that?
