Wisdom on the bottom of In-n-out Burger cups

Updated on July 29, 2013

Who Knew?


Kirk Cameron has endured a lot of criticism and disdain from Hollywood because he decided to become a Christian. His testimony is very interesting and encouraging. Everything he says is dissected and interpreted in a negative way. As I checked my Facebook page today, I came across this picture which led to http://kirkcameron.com/2012/08/building-burger-business-their-way/ . Now we will see what the future brings for In-N-Out.


Kirk Cameron and In-N-Out

In-N-Out is Christian-owned


In-N-Out which has sold burgers for 50 years puts Bible verses on the bottom of their cups and in their French fry containers! I never noticed. After the notoriety of Chick-Fil-A, it seems to be a good business move to express one’s faith.

What's in store for In-N-Out


Will someone ask the owner of In-N-Out to express a position on marriage equality? From what Chick-Fil-A experienced, it may not help but it sure won’t hurt. Will there be a search to identify charitable causes to which In-N-Out owners make contributions? Even negative publicity is still publicity. I will be watching this one.


Courageous released January 2012

Who else will take a courageous stand?


The movie, Courageous, was released in January 2012. The ministerial staff of Sunrise Church recently completed a series on living courageous lives.


Synopsis of the movie:


“Sheriff's deputy Adam Mitchell endures a terrible personal tragedy that causes him to question what is really important to him. Taking comfort in his religion, Adam vows to become a better parent to his teenage son, and convinces his friends on the force to sign a pledge that they will all strive to become better Christians and better parents. Unfortunately, one of the men's moral compass appears to be broken when it comes to earning some fast money.” (taken from zap2it.com)


Courageous shows a 4.5 out of 5 star rating on Amazon.com. Many people have never heard of the movie but it is making its way through the Christian circuit. The objective of the movie is not to garner Academy awards but to encourage Christians to be courageous in living their daily lives. Thank you Kirk Cameron, Dan Cathy, owners of In-N-Out, Allyson Felix, and all other high profile Christians who chose to be courageous. We will see if other business owners come out of the proverbial closeout!

      Hi Giselle, Some of the best burgers ever. French fries are awful! Thank you for reading! California, Utah, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada

      I have not heard of In-N-Out before (are they in certain regions of the US?) - interesting idea that they are putting scripture verses on the bottom of their cups. Thanks for mentioning this. I wish they had In-N-Out here.

      Thank you Thomas! I don't go to In-N-Out much because I hate the fries and the location is not convenient. I love Burger King and then Carl's Jr. Carl's Jr. gives teacher discounts, senior discounts, and has coupons. They are all over the place.

      Years ago there was a stink about Proctor and Gamble and supposed devil worship because of their logo. It went on for a year or two and then died.

      Bottom line, people will buy what they like.

      Diane,

      I was unaware that In-and-Out Burger put biblical scriptures on their cups and as it happens I have a cup here on my desk. Yup...sure enough John 3:16.

      A recent news item mentioned that a slaughterhouse in California was shut down for torturing animals and that place supplied beef to the In-and-Out chain. Towards that end, I actually thought this article was going to be about that.

      In terms of your poll I voted that Christians can certainly own businesses. Additionally, should they decide to pursue a hot-button social issue that is their choice; however, as a business they can expect to receive some blow-back from consumers if their position is distasteful to the consumer in this highly polarized world we live in.

      I don't believe that IN-and Out will embrace the Chick-Fil-A model if for no other reason than the geographic boundaries and customer base. There is a drastic difference between Atlanta, Georgia on the one hand and Southern California on the other.

      I was unaware of Kirk Cameron's career path in recent years. I never cared for him but that was only because I never liked that show he was in...Growing Pains.

      Thanks,

      Thomas

      Hi Michele, If you are interested, article is titled "Kirk Cameron hated by nearly all of Hollywood" http://www.sheknows.com/entertainment/articles/952...

      Because he is Christian and says things that are consistent with his belief.

      I agree with you. We should humble ourselves and he will exalt us. Christian life is about the walk. Business is about fairness, honesty, and value. I get burgers at In-N-Out and drop back Mickey D's for frieds.

      Thank you for writing this hub. I would love to see this movie. Why would the media be treating him like a plague? As it is right now, so many Hollywood stars look like they are anorexic.

      Voted up.

      I don't think In-N-Out necessarily jumped into the fray. What captured my attention was Kirk Cameron standing by the In-N-Out truck. I knew Hollywood treated him like the plague so I clicked the link. There was no public statement or anything. It seems they have put scripture passages on cup and in fry containers for 50 years. No one ever mentioned that. I suppose if the owner verbally makes a statement it will cause an uproar. Maybe not. Thank you for reading!
