This issue matters deeply to me, and it’s highly relevant, because God has put people in all kinds of positions of influence within society. In fact, he positions each and every one of us where we are to impact other people. He didn’t ask any of us to be an island unto ourselves, or to not have influence, or to not affect the world or the culture around us. I don’t believe he called us to isolate and withdraw and live life behind a wall and barricade ourselves off from the non-Christian world around us.
Eventually, the Supreme Court will weigh in on the issue and decide whether freedom of religion extends even to businesses who simply say “I’m a religious entity” in order to avoid portions of federal law that they simply don’t like. Regardless of what that decision is, it’s becoming more and more clear that we are dividing into a country with two distinct sides, with one side believing that not only are we a Christian nation but that it is a moral imperative to live that principle out loud in every avenue, from politics to school to where we eat and apparently now what we drive.
Brother Brad, your post is interesting and inspiring. I agree with you totally. I also hold it strong that every believer ought to do whatever we do, be it business, work or daily personal activities with this understanding that we are stewards of all that we are and will ever be and have; this implies that our entrepreneuring activities must bring glory to God, blessings to us and others around. It does not in any way undermine discipline and proper management of the resources entrusted to us. god bless you Sir.
