I am still of the opinion (tin foil hat type of opinion lol) that we are very soon going to get the crap shaken out of us, all over the earth. So many people who have had rapture dreams have described a huge earthquake happening right beforehand. Seems the earth is ramping up for such an event.
We are so close, my Lord Jesus let us be so close to going home.
For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, WHO IS THE SAVIOR OF ALL MEN, especially of believers.

EnochWalked: sesquip: That's a good point, but I still think that the owner of a privately owned company doesn't necessarily have a moral duty to damage the value of their company by publicly supporting unpopular causes. Brave to do so, but maybe donate anonymously.

fitz: But you can't donate anonymously as a corporation. A legitimate company puts every single penny on the books, so no longer anonymous. See a CEO answers to a board of directors...so its not a question of publicly or privately held.

fitz: sesquipedalian what you are basically saying is that a Christian cannot be the CEO of a big corporation. No matter what business decisions he makes, eventually he will make one that other Christians think is immoral and anti-christian. Can't win.
Dec 5, 2019 14:57:22 GMT -6
fitz: even though he was just doing his job...which is not to be a shining example of a Christian CEO in the business world, though that's a noble pursuit, his main focus should be making money for his bosses.
Dec 5, 2019 14:59:10 GMT -6
fitz: Else he's a bad employee...which isn't very Christlike either.
Dec 5, 2019 15:00:12 GMT -6
EnochWalked: fitz: I think if a CEO owns a corporation, he can pay himself whatever salary he wants from the company's money, and then anonymously donate that. I suppose that move wouldn't be very popular with the employees, or make the company very competitive.

sesquipedalian: It really is disappointing to see two Christians trying to justify abandoning moral principles for the sake of profits and worldly favor. Never mind the fact that Chick-Fil-A already had sizeable profits and tremendous loyalty from their customers.

mike: Weighing in again, I'm disappointed. In this world there aren't too many righteous stories to be "proud" of. This was but is no more. That's the part that caused my reaction. If I boycott them I have to boycott everything

Bora: They had it and then they were brow-beat and lost it. To bad they caved as they had my admiration but now no. They are simply the strong that backed down in the heat of battle.

Joecool: Since God was always all-knowing, that means He not only knew us but He was thinking about us before the foundations of the world
Dec 6, 2019 10:17:13 GMT -6
Joecool: No sense in worrying about the battles since God is Always with us.

EnochWalked: sesquip: I don't think I was trying to justify "abandoning moral principles" and I'm sorry if it came across that way. I was just trying to show empathy for Christian company owners who choose to avoid controversy in order to keep their business operating.
Dec 6, 2019 16:15:01 GMT -6
EnochWalked: If the owner of Chick-fil-A had been motivated only by personal greed, or avoiding personal embarrassment in the eyes of the secular world (as your first link suggests, without evidence) then I would not justify that, but I don't know his heart (God does).
Dec 6, 2019 16:18:28 GMT -6
EnochWalked: The company is still giving to charities concerned with "education, hunger, and homelessness.", which still seems moral to me, and I wouldn't feel comfortable condemning them for that. ("He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone" Jn 8:7)
