A Christian Perspective on Network Marketing
Do you believe that what you are doing is in accordance for your purpose and plan on this earth? This post has been on my mind and a draft in my blog for a long time. This is simply my personal christian perspective on Network Maketing. !WARNING! You may or may not agree or like what I have to say but let me know by commenting below. This blog post is not for additional business or to recruit people or to convert you to christianity its just a simple christian man’s point view on the industry and thats it. Have you ever thought about what God thinks about network marketing or mlm business?
If you are someone who sees or feels that home based business is unethical. Thats understandable because I thought that as well before I understood what I know now. Here is what I found…
Have you ever researched to find out who was the world’s greatest network marketer? I’ll give you a hint…
- He recruited 12 frontline distributors
- Regularly performed trainings
- Experienced rejection
- Turned those 12(well really 11 in the end since Judas quit, even Christ had some attrition lol) into a massive world wide downline of hundreds of millions…
Now if you think about it, you’ll notice that Christ built his ministry the same way network marketers build their business! Jesus worked together with his disciples/team. Ok now listen to this, christ’s first four disciples were some fishermen he prospected while walking beside the Sea of Galilee. He saw two brotheers, Simon Peter and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the lake and Jesus said, “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Mathew 4:18-19 The picked up their nets and followed him.
Christ taught his disciples to be fishers of men, not money. Now the bible says that you do his will and the desires of your heart will be added unto you. Im not saying that God is like a paycheck or an ATM machine, cause he’s not. The Bible does say in Mathew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” I do trust the Lord to meet all of my needs regardless of the economy, my bank account statement, my company, my debt, my sins, and my mistakes.
Christ taught his disciples his message and what he came to do and it spread throughout the world. His disciples then duplicated! They went out to the corners of the world preaching the messaging. Kind of like how we are spreading the message of freedom with home based business.
I personally am a born again christian and believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again to pay for our sins.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Christ’s business is souls and network marketers business is people. What I love about both is they are both opportunities to create a life that most only dream about. I don’t know about you but I am not someone whose life is NOT meant to be average or vanilla. We are here to lives of abundance, prosperity, and freedom. In both we are approaching people the same way, we want to help others and we have something incredible to share with them. I don’t wear my religion on my sleeve but being in network marketing you talk to people who sometimes are in dire straights, maybe home business can’t help them, but I know who can.
If you have other questions about God and your network marketing business comment below and I’d be glad to answer.
Make it an awesome day!
