The warnings of succumbing to the love of money are dire in the Bible. The rich young ruler who claimed to be perfect in following the commandments was turned away by Christ because he loved his possessions more than his Creator. There were none that contradicted the young man’s claim so we can assume he was probably a very good man, but it takes more.
What if you could earn $100 a day (and even much more), from promoting this very website online (and others like it)? What if you knew exactly how it was that so many of the self-described “guru’s” made over $100,000 per year simply by affiliate marketing other people’s products? What if you had access to the same knowledge that other “upscale guru’s” are known to charge $2,000 for in “one-on-one coaching seminars”? Do you think there would be any prosperity, or benefits from the knowledge of that in starting your own Christian home business?

And will it really help me create my own Christian work from home opportunity?” Awww, we’re glad you asked.
If your answer is “yes” to prosperity, then would you be willing to spend a few hours a day for 30 days, working on this endeavor via our 30 day action plan?

Mary & Martha has a career plan listing on their website that allows you to see the different bonus structures as you move up in the consulting ranks. To start, you make 25% of the profit and once you sell $1200 a month, you earn a 5% bonus. The bonus structure makes it more difficult for those at the bottom to make money so. To make a good income, it appears that you would need to advance higher in the ranks at Mary & Martha.
Imagine for a second that you obtain an education becoming licensed as a general contractor and home-builder. You learn everything you need to know and have every feasible working knowledge and expertise as to what it takes to build a home. Well, you still have to buy materials, and supplies, as well as continuing education resources to learn masonry, and carpentry, and plumbing.
You can join their selling program for as low as $199 or up to $499 for their largest starter kit. According to their website, they have an attractive commission program which starts at 25-30%.

Does just being a “religious” owner of a company mean that you get to declare your business to be faith-based? Now, as new lawsuits against the mandate pile up, the correlation of what constitutes a religious business is getting more tenuous. A recent press release announcing yet another suit says it is being filed by a “faith-based car dealership” that says its religious beliefs are being violated by being forced to cover contraception in their health care plans.

With the Internet, the results are entirely dependent on you, and you alone. If you fail, you have no one to blame but yourself. Similarly, if you put your nose to the grindstone, and truly work at this, you can follow the path of becoming one of the many $100,000 per year earners… and yes though it is the exception, some do this in their very first year in their Christian home business! It all depends on what you are willing and able to put into this. Whether you desire $100 per week, $1,000 a month, or $100,000 per year, they are all possible and attainable.

King University’s religious foundation merges with a relevant and career-focused curriculum, allowing students to gain the skills they need for successful and meaningful careers.
While state schools can provide information about counseling, City Vision will provide very practical counseling education with deep Christian integration. Similarly many state schools’ nonprofit management programs are often essentially generic business degrees, while we help our students integrate their Christian values in how they run nonprofit organizations and businesses.
Grace & Heart is a direct sales company that markets themselves as “a community of friends founded on passion and purpose.” They sell faith-inspired sterling silver and genuine stone jewelry through their consultants, which are called “Bravehearts.” The jewelry pieces range from $29 to $200, so there is something for everyone and for every occasion. All jewelry is handcrafted in the United States.
Still, the owner, Doug Erickson, insists it is a religious company because, when it was failing and he thought about selling them off, he “gave it over to God” and now it makes money. “Erickson believes that his role as President and majority shareholder of the Dealerships is that of a steward of a business given to him by God and that his employees are God’s children who are entrusted to his care. He regards it as his religious duty to operate the Dealerships in conformity with his religious beliefs,” states the complaint. It also notes that he believes his company is a “marketplace ministry,” meaning he evangelizes to his employees and customers — a fact that I’m sure some of his customers would no doubt prefer to be made aware of before coming to shop.
Successful entrepreneurs look at the world through a lens of opportunity. We want to train the next generation to think entrepreneurially from a young age. Thinking outside of the box, looking for solutions where others see dead-ends and creating new opportunities are just a few of the things needed to succeed as an entrepreneur. Let us help pass this mindset on to your children and teens!
Regardless of the success and profitability of a particular idea, the entrepreneur must make good on his commitments and do what it takes to pay off any debts that he may have incurred while pursuing his vision. This financial “sword of Domacles” motivates the entrepreneur to work strategically to best serve people in the market and make his enterprise a success.

Well what do you reckon on this? When my wife and I moved to a different area in England and attended (for the first time!!) a new Church where we knew nobody (over 100 miles from where we had previously lived!!) a talk “A Church Jesus Would Go To ” (also down for the weekend was my mother in law!!!) I got a word of knowledge regarding a gift of extreme creative entrepreneur thinking that had been given me and it should be harnessed. Now the Church (the same Church we attended for the talk) to this day we are still members of and my wife regularly attends is an Anglican Church, holy spirit lead and filled with level headed, sensible followers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I had the option to believe this or reject it. I have chosen to believe it and hope this can encourage other christain entrepreneurs “to stick in there”. Pray about your new venture , about if it aligns with God’s purpose for your life OR do reject it (your choice !!!)…… OR be obedient and be lead by God and forge ahead with God leading. In my heart of hearts I believe Jesus uses us in all ways to spread his word and being in business is just another way we should embrace
The Bible is all about Jesus and His Atoning Sacrifice on the Cross for US! We don’t need to (and cannot) do anything more. I tell others of the Salvific work of Christ, and how believing in your heart (where only God can look), the Holy Spirit works change in our nature. Our we still sinful? YES of course but we’re freed of the crushing guilt of the Law and we rejoice at God’s forgiveness. We are all beggars; we look to Christ; we confess the one TRUE FAITH given once to the saints – why would you, Bill Woolsey, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, and countless others push new ideas on what Christ’s Church needs to do and to be ?
Faith can serve as a positive influence in everything we do. For those with dreams of entrepreneurship, strong belief can encourage ethical business decision making, philanthropy, and a sense of purpose. King University is pleased to celebrate famous individuals who successfully integrated their Christian beliefs with their worldly professional goals.
