So is that what it takes to be a “faith-based” organization now? In some ways, it appears that these businesses get the best of all worlds: an ability to proselytize to employees and inject their biblical worldview, but without the onus that true ministries have to actually improve the lot of the poor. Instead, they not only get to build their profit for their own comfort, but receive the benefit of tax write offs for giving parts of those profits to true faith-based organizations, who also then do not have to pay taxes because they are religious organizations and non-profits.
However, entrepreneurship can become detrimental to one’s spiritual life if it becomes an idol or if the entrepreneur is serving Mammon rather than God (Luke 16:13). Some entrepreneurs become so immersed in work that they neglect family, friends, their health, and the Lord. When anything takes our total focus for an extended period of time, it can shift our lives out of balance. So Christian entrepreneurs must work to keep priorities straight and remember that a business with God’s blessing will fare better than one without it. The Lord will not tolerate our idols, so a new business owner must work to keep success from becoming more important than anything else.
In our 200+ page tutorial, The Plan of Attack, you are presented with an extensive, step-by-step action plan that will take you from “baby Christian marketer”, to being on fire for Internet marketing… why? Well, once you get a taste of spending more time with your family, blessing the one’s you love, and focusing on the most important things in life (1-God, 2-family, and 3-everything else) you can’t help but to get on fire for what you’re doing!
Established in 2009, Integrity Publishing Solutions, publishers of the Christian Business Referral Network, has always believed that together we can change the world through our faith in Jesus Christ. To do this effectively we must be willing to step forward, publicly declare our belief and commitment in our Lord and demonstrate our faith in our daily life. Each of us must take our place as community business leaders, profess our belief in the Word of God and demonstrate our belief in how we conduct our businesses with both believers and non believers. Integrity Publishing Solutions is dedicated to bringing Christians and Christ centered businesses together in an effective and professional manner that honors God. We achieve that by connecting Christian consumers with Christ centered businesses through online, print and mobile media.
