Congrats on your 100th post. It's great as usual. My definition of a Christian Entrepreneur is someone (a Christian) who uses their talents, treasures, and time to operate a business, in which God has place them as a steward, in a manner that will bring Him glory, as well as be a blessing to his or her community, nation, and world as a whole through that business.
Love it. We have been in Peru for almost 48 years, doing missions but more recently (last 15 years or so) doing business for missions, being self supported, greater circle of influence in community, and region. Some question what we are doing….other missionaries…..as we have this stigma around Christian circles as you mention that making money is evil…secular etc.
“The government should not be able to coerce faith-based, for-profit businesses to violate their religious beliefs,” said Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel for Liberty Institute, which is representing the owner. ”This Mandate illegally and unconstitutionally forces our client to violate his sincerely held religious beliefs that form the very foundation for his work as a businessman.”

However, entrepreneurship can become detrimental to one’s spiritual life if it becomes an idol or if the entrepreneur is serving Mammon rather than God (Luke 16:13). Some entrepreneurs become so immersed in work that they neglect family, friends, their health, and the Lord. When anything takes our total focus for an extended period of time, it can shift our lives out of balance. So Christian entrepreneurs must work to keep priorities straight and remember that a business with God’s blessing will fare better than one without it. The Lord will not tolerate our idols, so a new business owner must work to keep success from becoming more important than anything else.

My Christian friends… today and with a heavy heart I announce the closing of the website TheChristianDude.com ! We have two considerations in place for our future… to complete revamp the site and reshape it  with a completely different approach. Or, sell it since it has top 5 rankings on Google for “Christian Home Business” and many other Christian-centric search words and phrases. If you are interested in purchasing this site and the thousands of products on it, please email me at tcdhelp@gmail.com… but be patient, as I am not checking that email much these days. …
