Business and Christianity

Postby Business Man » 5th August 2011, 16:21

Dear Zambia,

I am a Christian/believer and I am in Business (Information Technology and Related Services). I have made some business observations through my 3 years of running my business that it is very difficult as a Christian to run business and I can assume any type of business without compromising in one way or the other here and there and I mean no matter how 'small' the compromise but business rely tests your beliefs and I have fallen short of that.

Compromises like :

1. Entertaining procurement officers in the hope of winning contracts.
2. Telling the secretary to lie to a creditor that you are not in the office so that you can buy time for the monies to hit your bank account in order to pay that creditor

What are your views?

I agree with you. Doing business in the current environment is difficult for Christians, I mean true christians. However, it is also true to say that it is still possible to do clean business despite the dictations of the business environment. The fact that you realise that some of the things you do are not right is a positive sign and would like to encourage you to continue with you business and keep cutting doing on such things.
I believe God is not blind nor is He deaf to notice His own if they labour for Him in truth.
Keep praying for your tranformation.
