This paper explains that the idea of ethics and occupational consistency can be one that is a difficult one to sort out in this day and time. For Christians, having an occupation that agrees with their ethics is especially hard, since the occupation must allow for the Christian to attend church services and work in a profession that does not require him/her to sin. It discusses how there are many Biblical reasons for a Christian to be careful when choosing an occupation; many jobs may not seem to be unethical for Christians, but still can become difficult for a Christian to perform ethically. Although the Bible may not specifically address certain issues, there are guidelines within the book that can be followed.

From the Paper:

"The idea of being consistent with an occupation and the ethics of a person has many applications. In the world today many occupations require a person to work hours that may prevent church attendance. Also, some occupations are one's which may call one's ethics into question all together. A person may have to go against what they know is right because of what their job requires them to do. These problems are not new, but are more prevalent than they were in Bible times."
