The Bad Ass Coffee Company

There’s a cool coffee company in Hawaii, called the Bad Ass Coffee Company. Last time I was over there, I wanted to go and try the coffee and check the place out, but I didn’t get around to it. But, just because of the name and the general attitude, I’ve decided I like this coffee.

On their website (click here), there’s info about the company, about the coffee, and cool stuff you can order. I would love to order a gray long-sleeved t-shirt, or a hat, but there’s just one problem. It just doesn’t seem appropriate for a guy in ministry to wear something that says “bad ass.”

I’m pretty sure, deep down in the place where we’re sure of stuff, that there’s probably nothing wrong with wearing a shirt like that. If I had a friend with that shirt or hat, I wouldn’t have a problem with it, other than jealousy. If someone came to church dressed that way, I wouldn’t mind, though I think it might make some people uncomfortable.

Paul (the Apostle, not the guy next door to me) says in I Corinthians, “Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial.” This probably applies to my bad ass situation. If I were to re-write the verse, it would say, “Lots of things are cool, but they’re just not worth the hassle they might cause.”

Maybe I’ll just order some of their coffee. And maybe a mug. And maybe a shirt, just to wear places where no one knows me.

    Well, if you read the King James version, there are 76 references to the word “ass.” So technically you could just be KJV if you wore the shirt. However, I understand not wanting to be a stumbling block to others!

    Go for the coffee. 🙂

    There’s nothing wrong with the shirt really, but coffee makes the hands and heart warm.

    I like your quote from Paul.
