The Marketplace: The Battlefield for Souls

Here’s a blog entry by Pastor PK’s blog who serves Hope London Church. I am very much encouraged by his passion for God’s Kingdom and vision for His Church in being a powerful instrument of change in the marketplace. I pray that fellow Christians will be inspired to live out their faith in God more boldly from Mondays to Saturdays at work, just as they would on a Sunday. 

Pastor PK and his wifeThe Archbishop Rowan Willaims, Head of the 80m Anglican Communion worldwide, provoked outrage when he suggested on February 7th that the adoption of elements of Islamic sharia law in Britain was “unavoidable”. This undermined further his authority in trying to bring unity to the Communion which has been divided over the issue of homosexuality between the liberals and the conservatives in the Communion.

This also weakens the position of the state church which has been seen by the increasingly secular Britain as privileged yet irrelevant. By trying to extend religious rights that Christians enjoy to the Muslims, it actually upsets the secularists further. They are already calling for a smaller official role of the church in Britain. At present 25 bishops sit in the House of Lords.

I personally believe that Christians have to find their voice in society like anyone else, without any advantage over non-Christians. To demonstrate our faith and the greatness of our God, we have to reflect God’s greatness in our lives.

This means that Christians have to raise the bar in our performance in the classroom or in the workplace, wherever God puts us. There is a greater need for us to shine for Jesus in the world in order to attract people unto Him. Whilst the classroom continues to be a fertile ground for harvest, I believe that the marketplace is where the biggest battle for souls is fought.

The challenge is immense; serving God, not money. The key is living out the Gospel with the help of God. (cont’d)

One thought on “The Marketplace: The Battlefield for Souls

  1. Stumbled upon your website. Interesting point about how secularists are the ones feeling threatened.

    I am no Christian but what I find interesting is that the recent attempt to have Section 377A repealed by the gay community has opened my eyes how sections of secularists (in this case the gay community) would go all out to on a religious warpath against other communities (in this case Christianity).

    I have actually tried to reason with the gay community without the religious argument, but to no avail. They keep harping that religion is the cause of their plight, even when I have NEVER used religion to argue why I do not support their cause to have S377A repealed.

    Here is the article I wrote which drew most response from pro-gays. Take note of the comments that follow after my main article.

    I have also written a follow up article on the above.
