Around one in four Christians are unsure whether they should buy products online, or say they shouldn’t, according to a poll by ChristiaNet.com .

Seventy five per cent of people surveyed by the portal were pro-internet shopping, but others declared the activity to be non-Christian.

Some expressed concerns about safety and security, while one added: "The internet has been invaded by enterprising individuals who put advertisements online for products that do not exist."

Out of 166 people who took part in the poll, 125 answered yes to the question "should Christians buy products online?"

Some said partaking in e-commerce can save time and petrol, as well as supporting Christian companies on the web. Thirty-three participants in this survey were unsure about online shopping, while 8 said no.

To my knowledge, Jesus never said anything about online shopping. I don't think he had a problem with entrepreneurial activity either, there are plenty of examples in the bible of people prospering and growing rich.

I suspect this survey is more of a reflection of attitudes in the general population than in the Christian community. It would be interesting to see if similar results would be obtained if the survey were repeated with another group, golfers for instance.

Hi everyone here,

I have started a new shopping portal - www.topestore.com where I have made my all endeavors to keep the prices highly competitive & a stores directory namely www.safeshoppe.com. I would thank the community here for their suggestion/advices. Please do not consider this a spam.
