From The Desk of Peter Grandich
Recent polls tell us many more Americans no longer believe in God. A generally-agnostic way of life has sadly become “mainstream”. All expression against agnosticism is met with serious opposition and is beaten into submission. Even some in the Christian faith (Catholics and Protestants alike) have all but given up as a group to protect the traditional family values that have thrived in America since its inception. Only “God-light” preachers, who advocate “Prosperity Christianity”, seem to draw large attendance in churches presently.
When I had googled “Christian Advisors in New Jersey”, only a few names appeared (and, although they may apparently confess their love for Christ personally, it appears to me that their businesses appear more secular-driven). In a state, such as New Jersey, full of Catholics and Protestants who practice their faith with love for our Savior, someone needs to be willing to endure all slings and arrows for “openly” advocating a “Christian” perspective on matters of finance, each day (not just when it is convenient, and amongst “friends”).
My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, gave us a manual for life called “The Bible”. It is not a book of “dont’s”, as the enemy would have us believe, but rather, it is a book of “do’s”. And, in The Bible, the second most-talked-about topic is matters related to money. Several years ago, I wrote about this, but I feel that I may not have done anywhere enough given the blessings and adversities that God allowed in my life. The time has come for me to become a more-visible and a better-heard advocate for this method of investing.
While I’m more than willing to do this, I am under spiritual assault as I move forward in this journey. I’m asking my friends to pray for me with an open invite to assist me in this journey in any way they can.
