    •  Biblical advice to work was not for salvation but (0+ / 0-)

      ...surviving this world. Both OT and NT say work and following rules will produce longer lives, not worth in the eyes of God. In large families it's less eloquently stated as "Reach and eat fast or go hungry." I think finding ways to glorify our higher goals in our lower daily striving for food and shelter is for sanity, not worth.
