Faith Pays Off Again
By: Rick Boxx

Three professors from Texas A&M produced some fascinating research titled, "The Impact of Religion on Financial Reporting Irregularities." They've discovered that in communities with a strong religious foundation there is significantly less risk of financial improprieties in companies headquartered there.


These researchers found considerably less fraud, and accounting misstatements, in strong faith based communities. It seems a healthy respect for God is important to business after all.


In Exodus 20, God's voice frightens the Israelites. Moses consoles them, "Do not be afraid, God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning."


Moses knew God and ethics are intertwined.

If you're moving your headquarters, or investing in stock, researching the religious culture of the community involved would be wise
