Not Mutually Exclusive…

Written by Patrick Fisher November 17, 2006 0 comment

There are two things I am deeply committed to – the teachings of Jesus and the tenants of capitalism. This sounds like a contradiction in terms.


I believe that both have the potential to make this world better, more prosperous, more peaceful. However, I’ve always thought (or been told) that these were mutually exclusive, that you can’t adhere to both. But, that can’t be true.


Sparing you the lengthy philosophical explanation, I only want to ask one question: Could it be that we could carry out the message of Jesus through the tenants of capitalism? I believe so … and am intent on making this happen.
