Christ’s Coffee: 4 Ways Coffee Makes You a Better Christian


Yep, you knew it was coming. Coffee is, after all, one of the Africa Boy pillars. It’s what keeps me (and probably you) sane. So, if you aren’t a coffee fan, dry your eyes and click that back button, because this post isn’t for you.

Coffee does make you a better Christian. Of course, I’m sure an argument could be made for tea, but in all honesty, I think that tea just makes you a better person in general. Coffee, however, is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind (the full list includes bacon, chocolate, and hamburgers), and thus deserves our utmost respect. After all, there are four ways it makes you and me better Christians.

  1. Coffee keeps our tired minds clear. In a day and age that is all work and no play, Coffee is Jack’s drink. After a long, hard day of study, one of the best experiences life can offer is a few minutes alone with a steaming cup of coffee and a Bible. It clears our minds, invigorates our limbs, and gives us a new purpose in life!
  2. Coffee is so unique, it draws our attention to God’s creation. While artificial flavors can be found in any store, coffee is unique because the flavor is hard to mimic. And, not only is it unique, but it’s difficult to process and roast, causing many to wonder how the ancient Arabs discovered this heavenly drink. Certainly, it was an act of God. As you drink your coffee, don’t forget to thank God for that wonderful drink!
  3. Coffee gives us energy! Sure, Coca-Cola or Red Bull can do that too, but they’re jam-packed with sugar and artificial flavors. Coffee is todo natural. Coffee gives us enough energy to make it to the end of the day, allowing us to praise God that we made it through another trashy day. When a day is long or boring, a good cup of coffee (and a burst of energy) is often just the thing needed to bring a smile back on your face.
  4. Coffee is the perfect drink to take to church. While tea can be boring and water just watery, Coffee is always just that: coffee. What better drink to take into God’s building? And, for that matter, what better drink to sip on while you listen to God’s word? Just saying, there’s a reason that 90% of all American churches offer coffee, not tea. Maybe God ordained that, maybe not.

Well, that’s all the coffee for today. Hopefully, by the end of this post, you were salivating and craving a good cup of Joe. If not, you aren’t human (kidding).

Delusions About God’s Glory

On April 27th, 2019, a man most have identified as John Earnest, entered a Jewish Synagogue and began firing an AR-15, killing one and wounding three. This teenager, John Earnest, while not being completely identified as the murderer, has been identified as the most likely perpetrator. He was nineteen at the time, and appeared to have no remorse at his actions. But, this is what’s crazy:

“Before he allegedly walked into a synagogue in Poway, Calif., and opened fire, John Earnest appears to have written a seven-page letter spelling out his core beliefs: that Jewish people, guilty in his view of faults ranging from killing Jesus to controlling the media, deserved to die. That his intention to kill Jews would glorify God.” (Zauzmer 2019)

John claimed to be a Christian. In fact, he didn’t just claim belief; he truly believed he was a Christian. And yet, for good reason, I don’t believe that John was a Christian. A belief that one is a Christian does not make you a Christian. We still have to allow Christ into our lives, giving Him room to work His holy will.

Sadly, a man can be so delusional that he believes God will be glorified through the death of Jews. In fact, a man can be so delusional that he, a psychopath murderer, will believe that he can both murder and glorify God. These two factors don’t add up. A man cannot have true belief in God, and yet go and attempt to kill people that are doing their best to serve God. No Christian, even one that believes he is one, would commit such a heinous act.

My point is this: even the most delusional, psychotic man can believe he’s a Christian. Self-deceit can run so deep, we never even give it a second glance. When encountered with these situations, the best thing we can do is pray, both for removal of self-deceit from our lives, and for God to work his will in our hearts and minds. Also, we need to disprove the theories abounding on the internet about Christian murders. John Earnest, if he did commit this terrible crime, was not a Christian. Despite this, we need to prove that we, as Christians, are not remotely like him. We should not allow the people angry over this tragedy to become angrier. Give grace and love, especially to the Jews. They have suffered as much as we have.
