NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Careers Frowned Upon and Self Employment Glorified?

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Are Careers Frowned Upon and Self Employment Glorified? April 28, 2016

QuestionoftheweekThis is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.

One of the things that keeps cropping up in this month’s issue of No Greater Joy magazine is an attitude towards working that keeps popping up in many extremer Christian circles.

Why is that? Why is working for ‘The Man’ so frowned upon?
