Spiritual Warfare in Business

I’m not going to believe some mumbo-jumbo about evil spirits and demon possession

Spiritual Warfare in Business

Firstly, why should I even consider entertaining God and business in the same sentence? Secondly, I am perfectly capable of taking care of business by myself. And lastly, if you think I’m even going to believe some mumbo-jumbo about evil spirits and demon possession, you’ve got to be kidding – I’ll leave that for my kids and Halloween!

Does this sound about right? Well, I’m not surprised, especially when Christians talk about faith and work together, they’re invariably referring to what happens in the workplace with people rather than the business itself or indeed what can happen to the business owners.

Praying and Prayers for Business

Is it time to speak to God through spoken prayer?

Praying and Prayers for Business

One of the most underrated faith-based activities is prayer. Don't get me wrong the people who experience answered prayer are wholly committed to it, but for your average businessman or woman, turning to prayer is invariably a last resort, when it's too late!

I can personally testify to the amazing power of prayer and petition (click here to read or watch a video of my testimony).

The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests - Matt 8:20

Jesus was not poor, so why does the Church say He was?

When discussing if Jesus’ was poor prior to and during his ministry, the immediate response I have received over the past five years is as follows:

The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no where to lay his head - Matthew 8:20

I came across the information below which seems to make complete sense; however, I am confused as to why so many Church leaders quote the same Scripture yet view it completely differently than below?

Islam - A Born Again Christians View

If we dont study the Bible what will compel anyone to study the Quran to understand their intentions

Islam - A Born Again Christians View

There is so much on the news and online about the growing situation surrounding IS, Islam and Muslims that I’ve been compelled to write my view and understanding of this based upon being a committed Born Again Christian for the past five and a half years.

During the early part of becoming a Christian I wasn’t encouraged to read the Bible although it is, of course referred to at Church but no one I knew or spoke to constantly read and studied it and as a result, nor did I. But that changed!

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Sometimes we have to look backwards to know that we're moving forwards in the right direction.

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Twenty years ago I had a quadruple heart bypass.  Ten years ago I was told by a cardiac consultant to stop drinking alcohol and lose 30kgs.  In the same year 2006, I came up with an idea for a book and a new business.
