To God Be the Glory

Steve Jobs' recent stand against pornography on Apple's IPhones brings an interesting philosophical debate. For decades, Milton Friedman, a famous economist, proclaimed that the only purpose of a corporation was profit, pushing aside any social responsibility. Mr. Jobs in essence shunned that philosophy putting company profits second to his belief that Apple has a social responsibility to provide morally safe product.
How does that stack up biblically? The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:31-32, "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God."
Profits are necessary, but for those who are serious about obeying God's commands we should do everything for God's glory.
