With respect, I think the article makes a simple concept more complex than it needs to be. But, I can understand, too, that — with the entire Christian community inundated with things like “The Purpose Driven Life” — there seems to exist some pressure today (that didn’t exist years ago) in making sure that every activity of one’s life has to be justified as “a way to glorify God”.

Students pursuing licensing in fields that often require a master’s degree from a regionally accredited school, such as Counseling or Social Work. It is because of this reason that City Vision does not offer master’s programs in these fields. As listed above, regional master’s programs to date have always accepted our bachelor’s degrees, but the decision is up to each individual school.
It’s a question that came to the forefront with Eden Foods, a self-proclaimed “faith-based” business challenging the contraception mandate. Although the owner filed suit out of religious objection to covering birth control, he admitted to reporter Irin Carmon he really didn’t care one way or the other, he just didn’t want to pay for it. “Because I don’t care if the federal government is telling me to buy my employees Jack Daniel’s or birth control. What gives them the right to tell me that I have to do that? That’s my issue, that’s what I object to, and that’s the beginning and end of the story.”
I also believe that Christian entrepreneurs who are not working in the “church” space should think more ministerially. If you’re successful in business, if you lead people, if you start things, if you earn money, if you influence your community or your culture in the business world, then you ought to be seeking ways to serve other people and to share your faith with people in loving ways.

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.
The Kingdom of God is not of this world. It’s not one of the seven pillars. Religion is humanly established. It’s organized. It’s regulated. There are rituals or things that we manage from a human perspective, but God’s Kingdom, the Bible says, is within you. It’s invisible.It’s basically the rule and reign of Jesus. Wo everybody that says, “I follow Jesus” is part of the Kingdom of God.
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.

I highly respect those who subscribe to the school of thought that there should be nothing professional about Christian ministry. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve read John Piper’s book, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals. It’s a great book. It reminds us that we’re not just here to analyze markets and produce numbers. I completely agree.
How many people obtain a University education, only to graduate and then become unable to find a job in their field of study? How many of those that do find a job end up busting their tail at a company that offers a measly $24,000 per year… just to “get into” their field of study via an entry level position… all in hopes of steadily receiving promotions, so that one day they make $50k to $100k? How many people get into serious debt for their college tuition, in the tens of thousands of dollars?
How much would you love to learn exactly how 6 figure Internet entrepreneurs prosper madly via “affiliate marketing”?
