    I agree that there is a fair amount of paranoia among business owner’s and operators that are being told they must evangelize in their workplace if they are going to be a “good Christian.” Ephesians 4:11-12 says “And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ.” The “church,” as all God’s people, is to be taught properly what it means to “be Christ,” including in the marketplace such that our efforts and endeavors will glorify (reveal) God in the goodness and character of what we do. “Witness” is far more than (traditional) evangelism models of verbally sharing. Witness is to live as Christ in the midst our broken society in such a way that the world sees the Truth, can find the Way, and be restored to the Life of God.

    Excellent article, thank you. All of my business ideas came, are coming from God. I asked him to help me out, because I just do not have any need for so much money. “Man needs so little to survive and much less to be happy” not sure who said that…but has always been true for me. We should be socially responsible, yes! When all have available the opportunity to work and take care of our families, we all live in abundance of joy and happiness. I thought I read somewhere God said “Take care of my poor”
