Is it OK for a Christian to work online?

I have asked that question myself if it is OK for a Christian to be working online,  and I prayed about it too. The verse in I Tim. 6:10 came to mind. “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with  many sorrows.” Money is not the problem here, but when we become covetous and our motives are not in line with the Bible, then we are in trouble.

The first website I came across after I had prayed about this working online business was a Christian’s website, as it turned out he is actually a preacher. I read some of his information and then I saw a place that said “making money” and I checked it out. He was talking about how he started out only a few years ago not having much knowledge of how one can make money online without running into a bunch of scam. Well, he figured it out, and after two years of blogging he was able to support his family full-time. That aroused my curiosity and I started to check into it. That was in June of this year and since then I have done so much research that I feel I can write a book myself on the subject, but not yet 🙂 I am working on a free 10-day mini course to guide you through step 1 – 10 🙂

So, having said all this, how can I help you? First, I suggest you really seek the Lord about this and if you have peace about working online, then the next step really is to do some research of your own. I’ve given you links before of places like” Clickbank” and “Commission Junction” where you can join their network and become an affiliate. Once you understand the concept of how affiliate marketing works and see that you can make money from it, then go ahead and get a website. It’s not expensive. You can go to places like “cheap names” or “namecheap” and pay between $8.00 – $9.00 per year for your domain name. After that you need a hosting service, and for that I strongly suggest “hostgator” because they do have an excellent customer service and are very reasonable.  Once you have done that, download “” –  this is a free program, and it is very good, and fairly simple to work on 🙂 Feel free to send me an email and I will pass on my information to you. There is good help available to build your site!

I wish you success, and don’t forget to give back once you start making money and the Lord blesses your business.
