Dependent or Independent? Toward a Christian Way of Thinking about Saving and Wealth

Symposium

Abstract

For seven years now, I have been a part-time investment advisor for a firm I helped start with my dad in 2009, while spending a good chunk of the rest of my time studying and writing in the field of Christian ethics. I joke that I’m doing an experiment to try to prove Jesus wrong about the whole “no man can serve two masters” thing, but there’s enough truth to it that I can laugh only uneasily at my own joke. From the beginning, I have felt a profound tension between the things I’m supposed to say and do as an investment advisor and the things I’m supposed to say and do as a Christian ethicist.
