"Desiring 'God' Ministries" Has A Problem Knowing How To Apply A Biblical Worldview In the Workplace
One of the dumbest things the Post Modern Calvinists have said:
"I began by asking him why it seems that applying a biblical worldview to the workplace seems so slippery and so elusive.
It is probably because of the fact that the church doesn’t have a uniform view. It is not a consensus on how the church is supposed to relate to culture more generally."
~ Tony Reinke at Desiring "God" ministries, regarding his interview with false teacher Tim Keller.
Actually, Scripture does tell us but these post-modern rebels pretend truth is unclear so they walk in darkness. There are many passages in Scripture that actually tell us how to live--in marriage, the home, friendships/associations, at church, and with work (hint: it's all the same no matter what arena you are talking about). But when you deny the Word of God from the Beginning, you have no light to shed on your feet. These men are walking in darkness (Eph. 4:17-20) as they wring their hands and wander around wondering what to do. Absolute nonsense.
1 Cor. 7: 31Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Peter 2: 13Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 15For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God. 17Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.
18Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. 19For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. 20For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds favor with God.
That's only two. There's more. I haven't even hit Proverbs which is a very practical book that talks about these things. You can do your own search in the Scriptures.
