An Analysis in Wayne Grudem’s "Business for the Glory of God" The Bible’s Teaching on the Moral Goodness of Business Jesus’ teachings, as reflected through biblical scripture, encourages Christians to be living sacrifices of the lord. The Bible says that in order to enter the Kingdom of God, one must work to serve others even before serving yourself, although Wayne Grudem notes that not a lot of people believe that business is “morally good in itself” ( Grudem , 2003, p. 11).
