A number of people earn their living writing and publishing religious books and articles. There is always a thirst for knowledge about the words of God and His meaning. This is evidenced by a number of Websites that all promote the word of God in many different ways such as Beliefnet.com, ReligiousTolerance.org, and Faith.com? Many newspapers also have a religious or faith or spiritual column. Review what they have to say, put some samples or clips of your writing together, and send them off to the proper person. Whether you e-mail or use regular mail be sure to get the editors name and spell it correctly. This is not the place for something like, Dear Sir.

This has created employment opportunities for many people both in the manufacture, distribution and sale of God’s stuff.

If your inclination is to earn a living spreading God’s word and doing good works in His name there are many opportunities to do so. You have to start by analyzing the nature of your calling to do God’s work, and see if you can measure up to what the Lord will require of you. That’s right, it is not enough to use God’s name, you have to believe in what you are doing if you expect to be successful. You will have to have the ability to communicate your feelings for God to the people you come in contact with and are soliciting.
In other words, before a person can make others believe in God, and do His good works, and make good money doing so, one has to have faith in the power and mercy of our common Lord themselves. You will have to believe that what you are doing is moral and ethical and in the best interests of God and yourself and the people you serve; otherwise it would be blasphemous.
How can you expect others to buy God’s stuff from you if you don’t have faith in God and his words of kindness and caring yourself?
Don’t miss this opportunity to work with God and do good works and earn good money at the same time.
Don’t miss this opportunity to build a career in the service of the Almighty.
Don’t miss this opportunity to work for God. Not only will you be rewarded in Heaven, but also you will receive financial rewards right here on earth selling God’s stuff.
Please note that earnings from selling God’s stuff will vary widely depending on the effort and amount of time you devote to doing God’s work, but the potential is there to make a substantial living if you just have faith in God. He does work in mysterious and unfathomable ways, and helping us humans make a living seems to be one of them.
