Business in the Kingdom

Every part of life is, or at least should be, in the Kingdom of God. As the great theologian Abraham Kuyper once said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, ‘Mine!'” Business, finance and economics are every bit as much part of the Kingdom as churches and ministries. And Jerry Bowyer believes that, in our day, the marketplace will be key to revival, reformation and renewal. Hear him discuss these essential issues on “Business in the Kingdom.”

The average grade is a 12 out of a possible 100. Corporations are failing, miserably. The ADF point-man on corporate engagement, Jeremy Tedesco, joins Jerry to talk about why scores are so bad, and what Christians can do to move corporate America back towards freedom and respect for differences.

  • A Christian Strategy to Influence Corporations for Good

    In the past when companies have taken anti-Christian positions, Christians invested in them have either ignored the problem or tried to screen the sin out of their portfolios. Strive Asset Management's Justin Danhof argues for a third approach: one in which Christians use their voices and their votes as shareholders to steer companies in the right direction.
