It's time to change our approach to business and help our colleagues understand what God has got planned for us

Setting Out The Battle Lines to Reclaim Our Inheritance

The Standard has been set up as a framework to provide support and encouragement to people who own their own businesses.

We are encouraging businesses everywhere to grasp what God has got planned for our lives as business owners.  The Bible is full of promises, however, because we fail act, these promises will not come to pass.

God wants us to prosper.  He wants us to succeed, yet we keep allowing the father of lies to steal our inheritance - that's satan for anyone who doesn't know.

Why do Bad Things happen to Us and Our Businesses?

Recognising the influence of Satan | Evil | Iniquity in your Business

I have heard many comments that it is foolish to give credence or exposure to, or about, Satan. Since becoming a Christian I've experienced highs and lows like everybody else, however, it has become apparent that so little is ever mentioned about the devil, Satan, Lucifer or evil for that matter.

I'm not going to launch into some rant, however just looking at the basics; we live in a fallen world, made so by the lies and deception of Satan to Eve and Adam.  If we know our enemy, we increase the likelihood of winning.

Why is it we can't seem to get it right when we pray?

Prayers and our Big Mouths

Prayer and its effectiveness is always a sensitive area for Christians. Some say it works, some say it doesn't, some have never tried it and some swear by it! So why is prayer such a contentious issue. Well, as you would expect, I have an opinion which is wholly scriptural and I think worthy to be considered!

We are called to test everything we hear, but what if the scriptures have been changed

Missing Verses & changed words in modern Bibles compared to the KJV?

The King James Version (KJV) of The Bible was published in 1611 and was based upon analysing multiple previous copies of Bibles and manuscripts available at the time.

Fifty four (although only 47 finished) of the most highly respected theologians, linguists and academics were given this task of publishing the most accurate and comprehensive version of the Bible.

Keep Calm and Pray Out Loud

God is not sitting in heaven quaking in his boots, worrying about the troubles of this world and nor should we!

Keep Calm and Pray Out Loud

As a business owner and a Christian I often feel torn between thinking that I have to do everything in my own strength to change what's going on in the world or to shout out from the rooftops that we've got to pray out loud, even to pick up a Bible and go to another country and almost scream at people so that they understand what it means to be a Christian and why it is so important to stop blanking Jesus thinking they've got it all sussed!
