Christian ethics and business can it happen?greenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread
In my town their is a group of professional business people who are christians who have a support group that mentors other business people in the community. They feel that if one considers him or herself a christian that christian principles should also be reflected in business practices. The support group is to help you withstand pressure from "the world" and or bosses who are not following Christ. In recent weeks we have heard that several large companies have lied about their accounting practices and the corporations have gone bankrupt, forcing many, many people out of work. MCI is laying off 17,000 by tomorrow because of a similar scandal. How can we instill Christian ethics in business and should we as a church reach out to business people in our community and invite them to church to offer spiritual support?

Begin by practicing what we preach ! Actions speak louder than words ! In asia - pacific regions or 10/40 windows, there are families who survived for a week or so on a day's meal for the average Christian in America or from any developed nations.
