      Did the professed believers in the truth live the truth, they would today all be missionaries. Some would be working in the islands of the sea; some, in the different countries of the world. Some would be serving Christ as home missionaries. Not all are called upon to go abroad. Some may be successful in business lines, and in this work they may represent Christ. They may show to the world that business may be conducted on righteous principles, in strict fidelity to the truth. There may be Christian lawyers, Christian physicians, Christian merchants. Christ may be represented in all lawful callings.—Manuscript 19, 1900. { WM 111.4}

      I once had a relative (he’s passed on now) who believed and taught that it was impossible to be a good Christian and a successful business man at the same time.  He even taught Sabbath School class.  He tried to do business as the world does it.  He ended up going bankrupt in his old age.  I believe that God has made it abundantly clear how to be BOTH at the SAME TIME.

      Someone once said/ posted:  “I fear more people are loyal to their CHURCH than they are to the TRUTH.”

       

      or to other ideas like this.    (as if ‘worldly’ business is okay)

      p.s.    Daniel,  Joseph,   who else in Scripture,  did work “inside”/”with”/  at a position or job or work,

      per a government that was not Yahweh’s People…..

       

      The WIDOW put her LIFE SAVINGS (ALL SHE HAD) in a collection plate at a TEMPLE where the TEMPLE leaders (some of them) were PLOTTING to kill JESUS THE MESSIAH!

      A LEPER,   a foreigner,  was HEALED….. when many other leper in Israel/ Hebrews were not healed…

       

      Gentiles have been granted the possibility to be a part of Yahweh’s Kingdom ! (the mystery that once was hidden – no one thought it would ever happen…. until JESUS brought down the dividing wall and made it possible) ….
