Wow -I really enjoyed your articles and comments. I believe you are right on with the current situation in our country. We are buried in debt to keep the latest fashion in clothes and cars etc but cant give to tithes and missions or even to help someone in need, we will stand at a ballgame for hours but cant at church for 5 minutes,we will sit through through 2 and 3 hour @#$%^&*movies but cant sit in church for 1 , we spend more time reading,texting and talking, etc but never spend anytime in God`s Word or prayer. Sad – I have been guilty too
A successful entrepreneur serves others, often at great risk, difficulty, and cost. Profits are a sign that the entrepreneur has successfully served others, but the profits only come after the endeavor. Along the way the entrepreneur may risk income, financial safety for himself and his family, his retirement, his home, and possibly the same of friends and family.
I used to work at a private university run by priests. Mobbing by the rector was the rule, greed and extorting money from students too, as well as finding ways of not paying the employees (for instance, although Christmas and Easter are bank holidays, they treated them as my personal leave and paid me less). And, as a priest, the rector behaves as if he were above the law. Or maybe it's the Vatican law he obeys, not the Polish law?
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.”
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.
In Christian church history, there have been periods of time when the church has really created a strict dividing line between clergy and laity; that is, between professional priests, pastors, and ministers versus all of the “ordinary” members who are not called to a particular church office. I hope that we lose that because every Christian is a servant, a minister.
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”.
If you say you care about someone’s health, it sounds OK right? Please don’t be put off by the word wealth. Wealth and greed are not synonyms. Wealth is many things but the financial part doesn’t have to be a dirty secret nor is tied to your personal value. Someone in your home is paying for the internet you read this on and that someone might not mind a little help. We do not advocate hounding friends or family. If you love what a product does, sharing it with someone who needs it is kind; not greedy. It is compassionate.

Imagine for a second that you obtain an education becoming licensed as a general contractor and home-builder.

The fact is, most marketers do things from the proven, tried and true methods that have been working for years. Those methods work today, they’ll work tomorrow, and they will continue to work for years to come, even as they continue to be tweaked over time.
