Christ, coffe cups, and Christmas

My dear fellow Christians,

Where in the Bible are we told to take up our crosses and be champions for dumb crusades?

Isn’t it time we worried less about secular organizations taking Christ out of Christmas and more about us, the world, and the church taking Christ out of Christianity?

Just saying.

  1. We get offended when others are offended by our offensive behavior. Perhaps a bit less offense is required.

    “Be holy as I am holy.”
    “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
    “Love one another.”
    “Bear one another’s burdens.”
    “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

    I don’t see anywhere that we are told to make a big fuss over a paper cup.

  2. Reblogged this on Chaplain + Entrepreneur = Chaplapreneur and commented:

    Amen to that James. I have been awakened recently to the severity of sin in the church. What if Christians had a consistent focus on allowing God to make us Holy on a daily basis? We could still go to Starbucks and have a warm Christian presence for the people around us while we are there.

  3. Oh, amen to this!

    It’s somewhat funny, when the fuss and drama about red Starbucks cups was hitting social media, I was on another mission, to rid the world of blue mustard. Seriously, my ever faithful yellow mustard has gotten a makeover and now comes in a blue bottle. The mustard is yellow, but the bottle is blue. A silly offense, yes, but for crying out loud, blue mustard bottles? 😉

  4. Yea how crazy can we Christians act at times. These battles we wage against things like this is exactly why people pay no attention to us. Thanks for pointing it out.

  6. Amen…and to think this battle is raging before Thanksgiving. This is clearly an after Thanksgiving argument… 🙂

  7. I love this!!! Amen and Amen!!! So many of these things only tend to take our eyes off of what is real and everlasting! Starbucks, et al; will be gone to dust, but Christ will remain with His true disciples! What we see is temporary, what we don’t “see” is eternal!!
    God bless, great point!!!
    Been looking through your other posts and wondered what this title referred too! 😉
