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.”

Jerry Bowyer is financial economist, president of Bowyer Research, and author of “The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics.”

  • Christian State Official Stands up to ESG Agenda

    Allison Ball, Treasurer of Kentucky, is an attorney and a person of faith. As such, she takes her legal and ethical obligation to oversee state finances, including pension funds, as an inviolable duty. That is why she has resisted industry pressure to embrace the financial fad of ESG investing, which replaces the goal of the best financial outcome for retirees with goals of political and social outcomes. Whether it's pushing to eliminate profitable fossil fuel investments from portfolios or to use shareholder money to vote for pro-abortion resolutions, Treasurer Ball and other state officials are resisting attempts to replace prudent financial management with an imprudent social agenda.

    The Treasurer of Utah recently wrote a letter to the ratings service S&P to object to agencies beginning to downgrade states' creditworthiness based on political, not financial, factors under the guise of ESG Investing (04-21-22-Utah-Letter_SP-Global_ESG-Indicators.pdf). Treasurer Oaks (www.marlooaks.com) found himself having to defend his state's pristine credit rating, not because of any financial problems, but because of pressure from political activists. He spoke with Business in the Kingdom about why people with different doctrinal views and different political views should be united in opposing the imposition of a single political ideology using the lever of concentrated financial power.

  • Christian Employers Are Under Attack

    Christian business entrepreneurs face enormous challenges.
