Ungodly income is that which is made in violation of the word of God (Psalm 1:1-6; Jude 15-19; 2 Peter 2:6; 1 Pet. 5:2; 1 Timothy 3:3 Acts 16:16-19; 1 Timothy 6:5-12; Ezekiel 22:12-13; Acts 1:16-18).
In Ephesians 4:28, the Bible teaches that man is to work with his hands doing that which is good. When the scriptures speak of that which is good, it is speaking of that which looks good to God and not what man may think is good (Proverbs 12:15, 14:12; Isaiah 55:8-9). There are certain ways in which men obtain income and God doesn’t like the way it is obtained. And since God doesn’t like it, such is immoral. What God condemns, no one can criticize (Romans 9:14-23, 11:34-36; Acts 10:15).
The following ways of income stand condemned in the eyes of God and have no authority to exist: bribes or fraud; working in an abortion clinic; working in a porno theater; working in a go go or topless bar; gambling or casino work; manufacturing liquor or cigarettes for pleasure consummation; selling drugs; or being a hooker or escort providing sex.
I shall stop right here, but I think this is enough to get one to thinking.
