Nobody retires in the bible

Billionaire Republican to Montana: Old people should be more like Noah and build arks until they die

…wealthy businessman Greg Gianforte, who is likely to run against Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock… For a little context, Gianforte’s remarks were made at Montana Bible College…

“There’s nothing in the Bible that talks about retirement. And yet it’s been an accepted concept in our culture today,” he said. “Nowhere does it say, ‘Well, he was a good and faithful servant, so he went to the beach.’ It doesn’t say that anywhere.”

“The example I think of is Noah,” he continued. “How old was Noah when he built the ark? 600. He wasn’t like, cashing Social Security checks, he wasn’t hanging out, he was working. So, I think we have an obligation to work. The role we have in work may change over time, but the concept of retirement is not biblical.”
