Just who is a Christian Entrepreneur? I will be using today’s post and others before the end of this month to teach this topic.
Christian entrepreneurship is fast becoming a common thing in our industries and the marketplaces. Many Christians now want to use their business activities to honor God and promote His kingdom on this earth.

Introduction to who is a Christian Entrepreneur
Paul wrote in the book of 2 Timothy 3,
“This know also, that in the last days perilous
times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy… But evil men and
seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
Jesus also said in Matthew 24:12-13,
“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of
many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved”
Who is a Christian Entrepreneur? : One who does engage in shady deals
Christian Entrepreneurs don’t engage in shady or ungodly deals and transactions. Let us look at these cases below of people who have embraced in shady business deals:
- We have seen and heard interesting stories of business people who have embraced high-level ungodliness in order to break even in business.
- We have seen those in top sporting
associations in the world who succumbed to the evil powers of bribery to favor a dubious
- We have seen people who sold their souls to the devil in their bid to grow their businesses and make more profits.
Ignorance is not an excuse
The sad fact is that many self-acclaimed Christians have joined this crowd of ungodly
actors in the market place!
Some Christians have joined out of ignorance of what the sole reliance on the principles of God can bring to them.
Some have joined out of impatience especially when results are slow in coming. Some have deliberately sold their consciences to the devil and are not ready to give any consideration to what God thinks.or wants.
A true Christian Entrepreneur
A true Christian Entrepreneur will take note of all I mentioned above. A true Christian Entrepreneur will allow God’s Word and Godly principles to guide his or her activities in business.
To him or her, the business platform is just one way to contribute to the expansion and growth of the Kingdom of God on this earth.
I will be sharing more information with you in the coming days about who a Christian Entrepreneur should be.
