Default Finally A Book Praising Big Corporations - 05-22-2019, 02:50 AM

One can hardy turn on the TV these days without some talking head screaming about the "evil" large corporations. Praise God a new book is out explaining why we need these corporations to take care of us.

General Motors and Ford employ hundreds of thousands and spurred huge parking lots at mega churches. Microsoft make it possible to find a Bible verse in seconds. At Hobby Lobby one can choose from 50 different crosses all on display. Chic-fil-a is a sandwich factory that has your food almost before you can find a table--and it donates to anti homer groups. Face Book allows you to put a new picture of you and your family entering church every week.

Shame on anyone who criticizes corporations.

It is a strange attitude indeed brother Mayor. For cannot the successful business be compared in some ways unto God?

The large companies give unto the people, almost freely, hamburgers (McDonald), an opportunity to publicize one success among friends (Bookface), and a choice of everything - shoe polish to 66” TVs - placed on a table before them (Wal-Mart). Even the TV companies themselves serve up nourishment for the spirit to a populace eager to hear God’s Word and see parables of earthly justice played out before them.

Yes, there may be a little in the claim that the laborers in their fields are not millionaires, but, let us be clear on this – if it were not for the big companies, these people would be basket cases reliant upon the charity of the Church.

The over-arching motto of these companies is “knock and the door shall be opened; ask and it shall be given (at a price that reflects a current market value, the expectations of shareholders and sufficient alms to prevent the worker from deserting the citadel.)” Is this not Jesus’s promise made real by those who cannot perform miracles?

The Bible, and hence God, is heavy on being poor – the poor go to heaven, the poor are worthy of our charity, the poor are noticed individually by God, the poor receive miracles, and the poor are always with us, etc., etc. – and yet what of the rich? Are they not the selfless ones who sacrifice their hopes of Salvation (rich man… heaven… Eye of a needle, etc.) to provide sustenance to their brothers? And let us not forget that the rich are hard-working, honest, and charitable and yet you still see them at church, at prayer sessions, and praising God despite their chances of seeing Jesus are about nil.

“One cannot have slaves, if one cannot afford slaves/servants/employees” is an obvious truth. God made those whose duty it is to serve Him. And His plan is perfect for the rich hire the poor, whose duty it is to serve respectively God and them: Both God and the rich deserve a basic and inalienable respect simply because they are either God or rich. How many rich people have you seen sweeping the roads, driving the buses, collecting garbage? How many people sweeping the roads, driving the buses, collecting garbage, etc., do you respect or feel the need to respect? … I think your answer makes my point.

Let us too recall that each one of those CEOs was at one time without money, without the ability to walk, talk or feed themselves – they know the shame of having to be dependent upon other able folk – yes, they too were babies and children and so completely understand what it is like to be poor.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It needed to be written not least because it demonstrates that God has made rich people to serve the poor as part of His Plan - In the words of that hymn, "He has made the high and lowly and ordered their estate." The rich are the high whose reward is on earth and not the eternal paradise that awaits the poor upon death.




Ec:7:16: Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?

Beautiful thoughts, Pastor Bathfire. I liked especially your reference to McDonalds.

If one thinks about the Loaves and Fishes story in economic terms it would be like this. Jesus blessed a small basket of loaves and fishes and provided food for thousands. We could say he provided free food.

But that is not correct. Someone had to pay for those loaves and fishes, or, have to spend resources like their time to produce them and bring them to the hill side.

What Jesus did was to lower the cost of that food so everyone could eat. That is what McDonalds does. By applying corporate know how the corporation mass produces food affordable to even the poor.

God bless our large corporations.

Hasn't the Supreme Court already designated corporations as persons? Doesn't God offer blessings to even the littlest child (especially the unborn)? Of course, God blesses corporations with the same largess that is His Great nature.


His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.

Sometimes we are told how large corporations as McDonald's throw away enough food to feed all the poor in the US.

McDonald's want to ensure the quality of the food they make, so if the food is pre-cooked for more than a certain time (I believe is five or six hours) they throw it away.


That food is not given to anyone, for several reasons:


1) That food is not free. You have paid it. When they give you your food, the price includes a fraction of the discarded food. So if they are giving it away, they are actually stealing from you to give it to the poor. That, sir, is called Communism


2) Do you really, beloved libtard, want to feed the poor with garbage?


3) Ok, so instead of throwing it to the garbage bin, they could save it and then gave it to the poor. This leads to the next question. Why I, a hard working True Christian, blessed by God with money, have to pay while those not so blessed by God have food for free? That is, again, Communism


4) McDonald's is attacked by the libtards for not having healthy food. And, at the same time, for wasting food. You cannot having both ways. You cannot say "that food is not healthy enough for me, but feed those saturated fats to those poor nigroes" That is racist, you democrat.


5) If they give food away for free, people are not going to need to work for it. Are we going to allow a generation of lazy poor people to keep us away from making America Great? Come on!




TL;DR: Do not criticize big corporations, thank them for doing what they do.


1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the TRUMP of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
