Christian Gold as a Safe Investment
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?
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.
