We live in a world where we are told to follow Christ to the best of our abilities. One of those abilities is discerning where are you spend your money and resources. In our world today money just doesn’t stop at were you spend it. It eventually is giving out commissions. There are good missions and bad missions on this planet. There are missions that support Christ and there are missions that go against Christ. It is up to us as human beings to be aware of what’s going on.
The Christian culture has slowly been changed in ways that is alarming. We used to be a group that the world feared. We are not of this world so the world should be afraid of us. Fear is not a bad thing. When the sheep are unaware of their power they are easily lead astray.
My younger brother Lucas was almost aborted at the mayo clinic. Doctors told us his life was going to be worthless. This is coming from one of the best healing centers in our known world. This is a personal subject and a global social mission. People need to be aware that there are organizations out there to kill people. Planned parenthood is one of the worst. Many Christians don’t understand that they are indirectly promoting the killing of babies. If you know that a cup of coffee that you bought indirectly was funding Planned Parenthood would you buy that cup of coffee?
Starbucks has notoriously been a company to attack Christian principles. The former CEO and majority shareholder of Starbucks publicly suggested he did not mind alienating Christians. In response to a shareholder’s question about the companies full-throated support for homosexual “marriage,” CEO Howard Schultz responded by saying “it’s a free country, you can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company.”
Starbucks donates money to Planned Parenthood and it is documented.
“Starbucks is listed as a company that matches gifts to Planned Parenthood, Accessed 4/5/17. Starbucks matches gifts to Susan G. Komen NYC and MN chapters, which fund Planned Parenthood, Accessed 4/5/17.”
How are we expected to see Christ promoted in our world when we are supporting Satan’s will?
“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
Our lives have sectors that have to submit to God. Some examples are physical, spiritual, and mental. One sector that I believe that fits the situation is financial. If we are aware of where our money goes we can impact many people. This impact will either be good or bad.
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”

My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.”
