Event Planned at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—The Tennessee Pastors Network (TNPN, www.tnpastors.nethas been urging the National Association of Free Will Baptists (NAFWB) this week to take a hard look at its investments and make a commitment to invest only in companies that are biblically sound and those that build up society rather than tear it down.

WHO:       Tennessee Pastors Network
WHAT:    Event to call out the National Association of Free Will Baptists about its investments during the group’s 81st National Convention July 16-19
WHERE: KFC Yum! Center, 1 Arena Plaza, Louisville, KY 40202
WHEN:    5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 19
WHY:       To address the incongruent investment holdings of the NAFWB, which is profiting from the moral decline of the world.

During the convention, Walker is asking three key questions in a letter to leadership:

  1. Will the National Association of Free Will Baptists deem and declare pornography as a spiritual crisis?
  2. Will the National Association of Free Will Baptists remove any company that profits from pornography in any manner from the Free Will Baptist Pension Plan and Free Will Baptist Foundation holdings?
  3. Will the Free Baptist Pension Plan and Free Will Baptist Foundation make public all holdings in mutual funds and investments on a regular basis to the general public for viewing?

Walker recently wrote in a letter to the NAFWB, “As Christians who are to care about the souls of others, we should desire to distance ourselves from pornography in our lives and investments. I pray that Free Will Baptist will deem pornography a spiritual crisis and take a zero-tolerance stance and remove all companies that profit from pornography in any manner in investment holdings immediately. Christians should weep over this pornography crisis—not profit from it!

“Free Will Baptist has failed society and its pastors by placing them in holdings that are hurting souls, hurting women and families, and hurting the world,” Walker added. “Jesus shed his blood for these dear souls and died on the cross for them that they might have eternal life and be delivered from a life of sin. Free Will Baptist are owners in these companies! This is not biblical stewardship or biblically responsible investing. To revitalize your churches, Free Will Baptist should consider truly following your church covenant and follow the promise that your funds will be invested in Christian-based, socially screened investments.”
