Businesses Linking with Each Other
Jul 21, 2022 • Herbert Hildebrandt
Business and economic freedom is a topic of increasing importance.
The Church has modeled our businesses after the world. This has proven to be problematic. Hopefully, we can build a parallel society where we can flourish.Woke organizations are well funded. Christians can no longer take a passive approach to faith and put our money where the truth is. We must transform how we do business to succeed in creating a parallel society:We must employ those who cannot be employed elsewhereWe must do business with those who cannot do business elsewhereWe need to be prepared to receive displaced people who are fired for truthWe must buy and sell with those who stand for truthWe must live sacrificially to set an example for our employees
We cannot wait. We will not succeed overnight, but we must start today and take each step in its time.
