Have Ministries Become Profitable Corporations?

Are we being led by the spirit or by money?

Eugene discovered a book titled “Overturning Tables: Freeing Missions from the Christian-Industrial Complex” by Scott Bessenecker. Have we adopted a measure of success based solely on the values of the free market, disregarding the condition or eternal position of people’s souls? Instead, have we borrowed paradigms from the for-profit business sectors of society?

Has the world influenced the church more than the church has influenced the world? It appears that, often, the church has primarily focused on a business model rather than being a transformative force in the lives of those who do not have the Gospel.

This discussion remains poignant and relevant in today’s online satellite campus fellowships. It is an insightful conversation between Eugene and Scott, where Scott presents compelling arguments about why the Church and missions should refocus their spiritual eyes and prioritize their relationship with God.

Episode 181: Have Ministries Become Profitable Corporations?

I am a Messianic Jewish believer that felt the tug of the L-rd towards the unreached. I decided I would go to China. My love for the Chinese people grew while I was there, but when I learned of the Back to Jerusalem movement, I knew the L-rd wanted me to be proclaiming His gospel message to the unreached people between China and Jerusalem. Let’s unite and complete the great commission. We need to accept the challenge Jesus has given us so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.
