No, It's not Jealousy : It's Principal

The Opportunistic Businessman Christian : Yes Men
I see it everyday.  The 'Christian' business leader who lives a lavish life.  The 'Christian' business leader who refuses to close on Sundays.  The 'Christian' business leader who has multiple divorces and routinely cheats on his wife.  The 'Christian' business leaders who allow trans/gays/drug addicts/mentally sick to overwhelm the company because they lack a backbone.  The 'Christian' business leaders who don't care how much food, money or animal's lives they waste just to make a buck and worst of all just for appearances.  The 'Christian' business leader who gives pennies to charities and employees while maintaining an overseas vacation home(s).  The 'Christian' business leader who never says thank you but expects more and more.

This is the definition of hypocritical, opportunist behavior and embarrassment.  It's putting a label on your company as 'Christian' but it couldn't be further from the truth.  You can't have it both ways.  Either you are a true Christian or you're a bastardization of the name and using it for personal/monetary gain.  We're talking about eternal life here!  Why not go all in?

Many companies look for and are comfortable with surrounding themselves with 'yes men'.  Yes men are extremely dangerous for a company's long term outlook and ability to grow.  Wealthy people deal with it all the time.  You never know who's telling you what you want to hear or who's really your friend just for access and what you can offer them.  Business-leaders who punish or avoid feedback can encourage bad behaviors and inefficiencies in the workplace.


No, It's not Jealousy : It's Principal
It's about doing the right thing.  Many people think that any sort of negative feedback stems from a place of jealousy but at least in my case that couldn't be further from the truth.  The more diluted society becomes in terms of spiritual/mental strength the more we must shore up our own defense.  Be the change you want to see and refuse to conform to the norms of society when they don't make any sense.  This goes doubly so if you wear the label of a religion or spiritual practice.  Don't just talk about it, be about it.

Being the change you want to see in the world is an overused saying.  As the world gets more fucking ridiculous, we need to begin embodying that quote more and more often.  

As with all my blog posts, feel free to disagree.  My mind can certainly be changed and has been in the past.  Disagreements without hatred and anger is what makes this country great.  The ability to debate,learn and still have respect for one another is a hallmark of America.  Drop me a message on Reddit, any social media and if you're a member of my automatic text messaging list, just simply respond to the text.
