"Christian Businesses"

I preface this by saying that I am and probably always will be a bit cynical. But I also have a very hopeful side, and I like to believe that people have good intentions, more often than not.

That being said, I have had a hard time with the "Christians" in business. Not necessarily with people who are Christians, without declaration, who are Christian in their life and lifestyle... I admire and consider myself a humble follower of Christ as well, and like to see examples that teach me to love and serve life better. But, I am referring to organizations that use their "religion" for a marketing tool or a lure to create the image of stability, honesty and trust. I have fallen for that lure a few times, and in most cases, it resulted in unpaid invoices and covert use of work that I have produced.

At my consulting firm, we currently have a saying to "Beware the Christians, they will take you out in a heartbeat."

What are your thoughts?
