Christian Gold as a Safe Investment

Top 5 Reasons Why We As Christians Invest in Gold:

When it comes to investing, the best way to secure a portfolio against uncertain economic conditions is through diversification of assets. This includes investment vehicles such as mutual funds, stocks, COD’s, various types of bonds, real estate and precious metals. Recently many investors have turned toward the latter, precious metals, due to the ability of gold and silver to withstand severe economic volatility.

So what are the reasons that we as Christians should invest in gold?

1. Hedging Against Inflation
Today, gold is a commodity that has physical intrinsic value. Prices in other mediums against gold vary, but gold itself retains the same purchasing power. Since before the dawn of history, gold has been the medium of exchange preferred from civilization to civilization. Tributes, trades, and other international situations dealing with money used to all include exchanges with gold on one side of them. Wise investors know that gold, in inflation and recession alike, retains value in ways that no paper money or speculation can.

 

Instead of playing the stock market, or engaging in usury by proxy, investments in precious metals such as gold is the best way to protect your wealth and future with a deposit in solid money as God intended. The reason why gold offers such protection is very simple. Unlike other commodities gold behaves like the currency it was intended to be.

 

2. Protection against geopolitical jitters
Current market conditions driving prices and stocks have a number of factors. Huge United States deficits are only one part of the problem. The public faith in the Euro as the area slides into a slow meltdown is another factor in the mess. Putting your faith in God means placing confidence in gold, as it is the metal He intended to act as currency. Even if the price for gold falls, you can be assured that it will never become worthless, as gold possesses a hard line value that cannot be diminished.

 

God say’s in Proverbs 11:1 not to partake in dishonest weights and measures it as an abomination, honest scales are a delight. Paper dollar money is a dishonest weight and scale managed by the Federal Reserve which is nothing more than an IOU. Gold and Silver is considered an honest scale, an ounce is an ounce! Haggai 2:8 says “the gold is mine, the silver is mine”.

 

3. The History of The Metal
King Solomon’s gold itself is still on earth today; that tells you something, it was here in the beginning and it will be here in the end according to Revelation 3:18 “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich”.

Gold, throughout history, has been considered money and the relative standard for currency equivalents until the latter part of the 19th century. The gold standard was suspended in the 1971 Nixon Shock, when the United States unilaterally suspended the direct convertibility of the US dollar to gold, as the system made its transition to a fiat currency system.There are many accounts in the Bible that indicate gold is the chosen money of God. In times like these, more than ever, Christians have turned to buying gold as an investment as the price of both metals remains strong. Should current fears hold sway it is possible that the future price of gold will be higher than it is today. While interpretation may vary a lot, one thing is clear, the faithful who invest in gold are avoiding the sin of usury, and that alone can be worth making an investment in the precious metal for.

Genesis 2:11 mentions gold, stating who of the holy men had it, and relaying instructions to Moses about it. Gold is included with the gifts of the magi in Matthew. The Book of Revelation mentions the metal a number of times also. It is not investing in gold that is the sin, it is making money all that you care about that is the sin. Throughout history gold has been the respected currency of those who follow God.

They say history often repeats itself..

 

5. Gold (and Silver) is God’s Money..and Must Be Owned

Robert Kiyosaki explained that Gold and Silver is God’s money. He believes silver is a big opportunity due to the heavy industrial demand for consumption and limited supply. Gold is a bit different in this sense. Gold values are benchmarked twice a day through the London gold fixing which has been ongoing since 1919. Gold prices are determined by the amount saved, not the consumption of the metal, and the demand for that metal at any given time. When demand is higher the price is higher. About nineteen percent of all hoarded gold is possessed by central banks and official organizations, and by agreement WAG members are limited in stockpiling the substance to 400 tonnes annually. While bars may be attractive for storage of large gold amounts, bullion coins are less likely to be forged and thus may be more desired.

 

5.1 Gold is Now An “Asset Class”..and Must Be Owned

CNBC’s Cramer says “Gold is now an asset class, and it must be owned,”

 

Transcript: “The demand from Indian wedding season alone is enough to make gold a terrific buy at the beginning of September every year,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer says in an Aug. 23 spot on “Mad Money.” “It sounds crazy, right? Who cares? Given that gold has rallied an average of 8% in September going back to 1992. Hey, that’s almost like clockwork. Of course, that’s just a trade. But I care much more about the power of the precious metal as a long-term theme. … Gold is now an asset class, and it must be owned.”

 

These are just a few of the top reasons that make gold an attractive investment. Every discerning individual should consider including gold in his portfolio for making gains and protecting the value of his investment.
