Christian Personal Finance

       If you spend much time reading personal finance advice for Christians (either on Provident Planning or somewhere else), you’ll probably start to realize that it’s not all that different from other personal finance advice. Most of the good advice for Christians applies equally to non-Christians as well. Stick to a budget, spend less than you earn, avoid excessive debt, keep an emergency fund, minimize your taxes, don’t buy insurance you don’t need, save for the future – none of those things are particularly Christian in nature. ...
North Carolina is now ranked as one of the top 3 leading States for Green Technology, Bio-Chemical Engineering, Medical Sciences, and Computer Engineering through the long-range research and development programs of Research Triangle Park (RTP), UNC Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State.

Most of the state falls in the humid subtropical zone. More than from the coast, the western, mountainous part of the state has a subtropical highland climate . Between 2007 and 2008, ...
Christian personal finance compared to regular personal finance
When I started becoming interested in personal finance issues, it was a surprise to find the blogosphere dominated by Christian personal finance websites. I’ve had my fair share of Church attendances in my Catholic-educated youth, and I still wasn’t sure how Christian personal finance could be all that different to the garden variety.. We thought this post might be interesting as it is the Easter long weekend coming up. A lot of the motivation for the Christian view of personal finance seems to be the idea of growing your personal finances in order to then give some of it away. The Christian Personal Finance blog states the ... market research, surveys and trends
Free Money Finance: Is Bankruptcy Ever Okay for a Christian?
With the economy in the toilet for a few years now, people are hurting financially like they never have. And many are trying to get out of financial trouble by declaring bankruptcy. As such, I thought it would be interesting to look at the issue from a Christian perspective and see what various teachers are saying about it. We'll start with Crosswalk who says bankruptcy is permissible for Christians : Many biblical money management teachers say that Christians who file for bankruptcy should still pay back what is owed, even if it takes the rest of their lives. For a long time, that's what I believed.  ... market research, surveys and trends


10 Tax Law Changes for 2010
Who would have thought the already complicated tax laws could become more complex? Yet, in 2010, this is shaping up to be one of the most bizarre years on record for uncertainty with game-changing potential (good and bad). Currently we have an series of unresolved tax issues, let’s look at how the rest of 2010 and beyond is shaping up: First there are the set of Bush tax benefits set to expire in 2010 with the sunset provisions and secondly there could be a set of 2009 tax breaks that may be extended for 2010 if H.R. 4213 becomes law (American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act). Now that 2010 is just about half way ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Lesson from Sam Walton of Walmart
“[They] are the most prodigious job-creator in the history of the private sector. It has almost as many employees (1.3 million) as the U.S. military has uniformed personnel. A McKinsey company study concluded that Wal-Mart accounted for 13 percent of the nation’s productivity gains in the second half of the 1990s, which probably made Wal-Mart about as important as the Federal Reserve in holding down inflation. Wal-Mart and its effects save shoppers more than $200 billion a year, dwarfing such government programs as food stamps ($28.6 billion) and the earned-income tax credit ($34.6 billion). People who buy their ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Aaron Shepherd
I grew up in a modest, Christian home with parents who were very conservative with their money. But in 2003, I found myself $40k in debt, with $20k from credit cards alone. How did I get to that point with such a decent upbringing? Before I answer that, allow me to start with a disclaimer: I learned most of the things I want to share from life experiences and others who were successful with their money. I am not a financial professional, nor do I claim to be. So, please take that into consideration if you choose to heed any advice here. I am hoping that by writing here I can help a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Freedom? Yes! Mosque? No!
New York City officials approved the building of the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque" last week, but some religious liberty advocates continue to decry the decision.  Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), said one could be against the center while still maintaining that the group should have the freedom to have a mosque in lower Manhattan. Speaking on Public Radio International's To the Point , Land said , "We have consistently defended religious freedom, separation of church and state. And we believe that Muslims certainly have the right to build mosques, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Christian Business Owners: What image do you want to project to ...
Jesus Christ was active in the market place - that was his main area of ministry (not in the "church", and for one day a week, as is popular belief). We also belong in the marketplace, where we are to be the salt and the light. We need not make any excuse for taking part in commercial activity. Gone should be the days of being a Christian business meaning that you may comply to second best (skew letterheads, bad advertising etc.). Or to have lame DJ's because you are a Christian radio station, etc. We are serving the Creator of the universe, a God of order and a plan. Therefore our business activities should speak of ...
