When I hear someone say, ‘I couldn’t work for a corporation with a profit motive or which demands more than forty hours a week,’ I say something like this: ‘Do you know that the christian slaves to whom Paul wrote were working sixteen hours a day for masters that were fornicating with female slaves, making dirty business deals with trades from other parts of the Roman empire and going to baths and the gymnasium at night for orgies? To these slaves Paul says, ’Treat your masters as though they were Jesus. You are not working for them but for Jesus. And it is worship’.
