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.
At times, one might even meet with active resistance from the establishment, whatever that establishment might be.

For this to happen, however, it took a three-year federal court case end a one hundred-year-old government supported monopoly to make it happen. That required perseverance.

Not long ago I contacted Sunu about starting a home business. I had read her post on 50 Authentic Online Business Ideas That Actually Work} and was inspired to put my talents to use to help my family earn a second income. What was merely a dream in my heart quickly began to take shape, and by the end of the year it was a reality as I launched my website: Missional Call – a fellowship and resource center for missionaries. Sunu expertly walked me through each phase with precise and well thought out step-by-step instructions. It was obvious as we met online on a weekly basis, that she had prepared for each session ahead of time. She knew what she planned to bring to the table and her obvious talent for teaching made me feel confident that indeed I could do this! I know that you will not only find these modules helpful, you will come away with great confidence that you can put your talents to work for you and produce a quality, marketable product!
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.
