Work is central to Christianity. Jesus Christ came in the form of a servant to do the will of His Father. Paul called himself a bondservant. We are bought with a price to be the slaves of righteousness. Even before sin entered the world, God made man to work for him in the garden that he had prepared. This is important, because it means that work is good. Though sin may add to our sorrows and labor, work itself is not the consequence of sin but of God’s good order and desire for us all.
In this episode we discuss how the church’s view and doctrine of work has shaped the world around it. Right now in the US there is a higher percentage of men who are no longer in the workforce than during the Great Depression. This is not because there is not work for them to do, but because they have no plan or desire to work. We should not be deceived, sin spreads like leaven and this particular sin has been growing for decades. How should the church think about this issue? How should we pray? And how should we fight back against this sin that is so rampant? Please join us as we discuss this important topic.
