Marc Lozano: The Christian Case Against the Stock Market

11/6/2023
Today’s episode features Marc Lozano, who is currently working on a book tentatively entitled, “The Christian Case Against the Stock Market.” A convert from evangelistic atheism, Marc runs the website Christ Centered Capital dot com, and has spent years giving investment advice based on Biblical Principles, and he believes with strong moral conviction that investment in the stock market constitutes a clear moral evil. We discuss Marc’s conversion, how he arrived at this controversial position, and why he thinks the stock market is a moral evil… along with his ideas for Christian alternatives to the stock market. DISCLAIMER: The Mary Foundation and its representatives are not financial advisors and nothing in the episode is to be construed as financial advice. Please consult a trusted financial and spiritual advisor before making any financial decisions. We strongly emphasize that we are not experts in this area. The Catholic Church has not condemned investment in the stock market, and Catholic teaching generally permits investment, interest, loans, and other such financial interactions. The views expressed in this episode do not represent those of the Mary Foundation—it is rather a conversation exploring a fascinating idea with an interesting person. Due to the constraints of the medium, there are many critical facets of this topic that could not be explored. We leave it to the listener to proceed in prudence according to their own judgement. And lastly, I hope you find this conversation interesting. --- To order powerful tools for evangelization for your family, friends, and parish, head to the Mary Foundation website at CatholiCity.com. --- Time Stamps (00:00:42) Disclaimer (00:02:09) How Did You Get Here?
