    You asked, “Do Pentecostal believers have expectations for business tied to their deep beliefs in God’s powerful action in the world today?” In many cases, I believe that the answer is yes. I have seen that many pentecostals and charismatics take very seriously the biblical concept of sowing and reaping, not just in a spiritual sense, but in a business sense. They believe that, when done for God, investments lead to payouts, especially when done with belief that God will bless the investment. This can lead to believers being willing to take reasonable business risks based on faith that God will provide a return.
    As a result, I have seen less opposition to business among pentecostals and charismatics that I have among Wesleyan/holiness believers, who seem to be much more suspicious of business.
