Running Head: PERSONAL WORLDVIEW AND BUSINESS ETHICS 1 Personal Worldview & Business Ethics Paper Liberty University BMAL 560
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 2 STEP 1 To what extent should personal religious beliefs impact our decisions about business ethics When it comes to personal religious beliefs and business ethics, I believe that the boundaries should be placed as to how far an individual allows their personal religious beliefs to influence the way that they conduct business. For example, if a business associate is granted the authority to employ others to work for the corporation they should not allow their personal religious beliefs to determine their decision about who will be best for a particular job. Our personal religious beliefs are exactly what they are described to be– personal ! And allowing them to interfere with our judgment for others in the business environment is in my opinion an act of discrimination. To what extent do your personal religious (or non-religious) beliefs about life impact your sense of business ethics and personal decision-making? My personal religious beliefs impact my sense of business ethics and decision making to a certain extent. For instance, when it comes to making a decision in the business environment I base my conclusions on my religious beliefs about fairness and integrity. Proverbs 28:6 (ESV) states that better is a poor man who walks in his integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways. In addition, I will not judge or make the decision to not conduct business with others based upon their personal religious beliefs, but solely on their personal ethical practices as it relates to business. I understand that we reside in a diverse world and with many cultures and beliefs; however, we are all God’s children, created in His image and are expected to demonstrate impartiality; as we are reminded in Romans 2:11 (ESV) for God shows no partiality.
