Supporting companies that don't support our troops?

I received this e-mail yesterday from my uncle. I have no knowledge of it's validity, so do not take this as Gospel truth. But it poses a very interesting question. The e-mail follows.

Guess I won't be drinking Starbucks anymore! ! !

Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to Let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that they send some of it to the troops there. Starbucks replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support of their business, but that Starbucks does not support the war, nor anyone in it, and that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee.

So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not support them by buying any of their products! I feel we should get this out in the open. I know this war might not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys on the ground fighting street -to-street and house-to-house.

If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you can discard it and no one will ever know.

After reading this, I did what most people do, I deleated it. But it brought a question to me later, how do I feel about companies that do not support the soldiers. There are more than enough people that don't support the war, and I don't think you have to, but I think that when it comes down to it, we should always support our soldiers.

So I post this, really to see what you all think. If there was a company that you knew did not support our soldiers, would you still support it? Why or why not? I think that this can go many ways, and I am hoping it opens up for some room to debate.

Have a great day!

Good for a Laugh

Everytime I see this picture I can't help but laugh. I hope it does the same for you. To be fair, Alyssa is the one who took this picture of what can be considered the ugliest dog in the world. No really, he wins contests. :) The caption for this picture is, "He has no teeth on the side, so his tongue chills outside his mouth" which adds to the humor of the picture. There are a few more pictures, if you want to see them click here or here. I really hope this brought a smile to your face on this great Friday!

The Great Debate

For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but the sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God-through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. Romans 7:14-25







There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

Normally when I post about scripture, I will just copy and paste it from Bible Gateway, but for some reason today I felt the need to type them out, to really write as Paul would have been writing. To remind myself that as he wrote this, he was not the picture of perfection I sometimes get, but he was a sinner struggling to find God's grace in the midst of his sin. Thankfully, he wrote Romans 8:1, to let us know that he not only found God's grace, but that same grace is available to us.

Super Tuesday

I am interested to see what your opinion is of the election. More specifically, who you voted for and why. I know there are a lot of people that do not feel comfortable with sharing that kind of information, so if that is the case, then just tell me what you think about it so far. If you didn't vote, why? Some people say that you should never talk about religion and politics, but what better way to get people to talk?

I am interested to see how this turns out.
