    Funds invested in a start up company like this one had best be money that you can afford to lose - all of it.

    May I ask why this particular oil company IPO caught your eye? Could it have been the Israeli connection? Would it have been of interest if it were Lebanon or Syria instead?

    Ken's absolutely correct -- if you feel you must invest, use only discretionary funds that would not be missed.

    And, if you have those funds, our congregation has some missionaries we support that would give you eternal returns!

    Yes.

    I don't have those funds. Just curious. On the other hand, if a person invested in it and made a lot of money, that could be a whole lot more churches or missionaries that could be supported. :saint:

    Well stated! If you intend to keep an eye on this company, perhaps you'd be kind enough to post it's progress here along the way. IMO, at that depth without a working well, al they've found is a need for additional funding. This just isn't an IPO I would fund.

    Very interesting. It is not impossible. Who could expect in 1850 that there would be the state of Israel? Only a few believers.

    If we check Genesis 49, we read the followings:

    Asher : Out of Asher, his bread shall be fat (20)

    Joseph : Blessings of the deep that lieth under (25)


    I believe that Edomites became a part of Abrabs and their blessings are mentioned here:

    Thy dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth. ( Gen 27:39)

    Note that the word for fat is shamen and meant fatness, fertility and oil etc.

    if this is true:

    doesn't it make the investment rather riskier than parking one's money with, say, even Chavez?


    quickly raising the lightning rod: :thumbsup:
