"It's Not Just About Finance"

Religion Makes You Stupid

There are not too many things that can stir up anger from religious people like saying “Religion Makes You Stupid.”

And before you start wondering what this has to do with investing, put on your holy rolling hat for a moment and hear me out.

In the Bible, the only people who heard the words:  “Well done, good and faithful servant” were investors.

Wait!  What?

Prove it to yourself by reading the 25th chapter of the book of Matthew.

But, ironically (or NOT) people today tend to look at investors as greedy people.

And that making money in the stock market is somehow evil.


While it’s true that many investors are greedy, it’s also true that there are investors who give away more money every year than most people make from their job or business.

And they do it because they understand the laws of sowing and reaping.

And they’re usually the most prosperous.

But as funny as it may seem, people (Christians included) are more afraid of prosperity than they are of the Mark of the Beast.

READ: The “Mark of the Beast” in France July 15, 2021

AND:  Chips Ahoy! Or Mark of the Beast?  August 16, 2017

And that’s one of the main reasons people lose money in the stock market.


Why Religion Makes You Stupid

Wealth and prosperity takes on all kinds of shapes and forms.

But the first wealth is your health…and they are closely linked together.

Right now, I can imagine there’s a lot of eye rolling going on…and some of you are thinking:  “Oh, no. Please don’t start with the health and wealth gospel. *

(BTW, the word gospel literally means “good news”)


And the good news is that there’s no sickness and poverty gospel.

But religion often tells you it’s wrong to be prosperous and healthy.

And that’s why it makes people stupid.

Bottom line?

In order to prosper AND thrive – especially in Turbulent Times – you’ll need see the investment world with a different set of eyes.



Because there are certain laws that govern investing that are NOT based on religion…but they’re based on prosperity.


Be sure to read “How to Prosper AND Thrive in Turbulent Times” in our February edition of “…In Plain English” (HERE).


Share this with a friend…regardless of their religious beliefs.

They’ll thank YOU later.

Remember: We’re Not Just About Finance

But we use finance to give you hope.
