The Absurdity of a Christian Home Business

I have to say, it’s interesting to notice the small, usually Christian advertisements just above on this blog. Right now one of them says, “God Wants You To Be Rich: Earn $7,000 Over & Over Again. Christian Home Business. Be Blessed.”

A bad joke, but perhaps also a hopeful sign for secularists. It’s very attractive to think of religion as an all-encompassing point of view and way of life. But in the modern world, trying to do Christian music, Christian psychology, Christian finance and all in the end reaches the absurdity of a Christian Home Business. You can talk about Christian faith and morality illuminating all aspects of your life, but almost inevitably, the fragmentation of modern life takes over and people do the same secular things as their neighbors but with an asinine “Christian” or ‘Muslim” label slapped on them. It makes the faithful feel better, and that’s fine. But it also suggests that religion can’t take over everything.
