Inner voice helps financial fate

For months now, Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith has been telling us not to get caught up in all the bad economic news. This nationally recognized spiritual leader says there are silver linings and positive lessons that can come from economic hardships. But Weekend AM has a story you likely haven’t heard. Specifically, how Rev. Beckwith was able to get his investments out of the stock market just before it plunged. He says the timing was simple – he heard a “voice”. Who’s voice? Was it God? Divine intervention? Betty Nguyen recently interviewed Rev. Beckwith at his home in Los Angeles to find out.

The next week, the stock market took a nose dive. Remember, this is the man we’ve seen on Oprah and Larry King Live ~ talking about faith, not finances. Yet, he says his experience is applicable to us all. Why? Because it focuses on socially responsible investing. We want to hear what you think. Let us know and be sure and join us for Sunday at 7:15 am to hear Betty's interview with Rev. Beckwith.

    Ya, right! A voice told him to with drawl all of his money. Ya, one did, his financial advisor, and that advice had nothing to do with god or faith, just another rediculous religous fantantic trying to use his faith to escape an investigation into his own bad business practices.
    We see this kind in our public offices and churchs all of the time, that's way so many are turning away from these orginizations, with complete disgust.
    Didn't Martha Stewart go to prison for that very same thing?
