Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another website.

Should Christians Boycott Starbucks?

Recommended Posts

 

At least from Starbuck's CEO, we won't be missed: If you support traditional marriage over gay marriage, Starbucks doesn’t want your business.”

Why would a normal human being chose to be a gay, it's a baffle to me. In one of the threads on this forum we did read that being gay is a conscious effort by people, people are not born that way. This is one of the evils of Sodom and Gomorrah that got them destroyed by God.

people are not born that way

Some people are apparently born that way. I suggest that you read the book Washed and Waiting, by Wesley Hill. Hill was born into a Christian family and taught that the Bible was true but found that he was sexually attracted to other males. Because of his faith in the Bible he chose not to act on that attraction. I have written a review of the book here: https://www.christforums.org/forum/entertainment-fun/books/963-washed-and-waiting-the-story-of-a-gay-christian

The Reformers believed it is ok to do business with sinners and heretics. I'd find some references but I just don't have the time right now.

This turned into an "is gay okay" forum. Question is do you boycott? I say if they do not want a Christian's business then it is our obligation to oblige them. So who here is going there still?

Well, Starbucks turn people away for voting Trump now. Looks like the question is not whether we boycott SBs but whether they boycott others.

As far as I am concerned, Sb has verbally fenced the store.

Then the matter is settled. Maybe this is why Starbucks is not being blessed. They've nearly closed every store in Australia.

I think starbucks did their best to promote gay marriages. And not only that feminism was mostly spread over by them through the commercials. I think the worst they did with the feminism. I have seen people suffering due to the feminism. I am surprised company such as starbucks which makes money off Christians run such propaganda. I don't have any soft corner left for them. They can't have my money anymore. I choose not to buy their coffee anymore.

This is why as children of God I think part of our prayers should be, instead of the unbelievers unrepentant men prosper in business God should make that happen for Believers. Let the true children of God take over the positions. One thing when an unbeliever is enriched chances are they may use that money to promote evil, support and sponsor despicable activities, as seen with Starbucks, that don't give glory to God. Empower the children of God and see the great works that will be done lifting up the kingdom of God, taking the gospel to every nook and cranny of the world.
