Christian companies grow in popularity
GLEN BURNIE, Md. — Philip DeLizio's real estate office looks like hundreds of others, with a few unusual touches.

In addition to glossy home magazines, clients can rifle through Biblical Archaeology Review and Christianity Today in the reception area.

While most advertise in the yellow pages, he prefers The Shepherd's Guide, a Christian business phone book.

DeLizio, who owns Maryland Christian Real Estate, sometimes prays with his clients, is planning to add a conference room with Bibles and other religious information and has discouraged young couples from buying houses that they couldn't comfortably afford. ...

The article says:

"Chuck Ripka, a born-again Christian, said he co-founded Riverview Community Bank in Ostego, Minn., two years ago ***after God spoke to him and told him to do so.***

It is a Christian bank with a copy of the Ten Commandments in the foyer and a Bible buried deep within its foundation.

Ripka prays with customers every day, sometimes after they sign a mortgage or talk about difficulties in their lives. In the office of the bank's CEO, ***a painting shows two businessmen, one shaking hands with Jesus.***

"This is not about money. It's about being obedient to what God wants me to do," Ripka said. "It's not a gimmick. It's not a sales pitch. It's just who we are."

I'm not entirely sure that God is actually speaking through people as His word might be fully revealed and complete in the Scriptures. Private spirits should be tested against His written word.

It would not be favorable to hang a picture of Jesus Christ, with whom nobody has an accurate picture of our Lord available, in the CEO's office.

Hopefully this CEO did not say that God told him to hang the picture as well as that might be pushing it a bit far.
