Four Lethal Misbeliefs that Minimize the Impact of Believers in the Workplace

Here is strong medicine from evangelist and missions strategist Ed Silvoso. These commonly held beliefs are like cold molasses around the feet of Christians who would do the work of the Kingdom in the marketplace:
  1. There is a God-ordained division between clergy and laity
  2. The Church is called to operate primarily inside a building often referred to as the temple.
  3. People involved in business cannot be as spiritual as those serving in traditional Church ministry.
  4. The primary role of marketplace Christians is to make money to support the vision of those "in ministry."
(From Ed Silvoso, Annointed for Business quoted in C. Peter Wagner, Changing Church)

How much have these non-Biblical attitudes cost in the growth of the Kingdom of God? I believe they have cost plenty.
