In-N-Out Burger's Religious Messages

by Ted Scheffler
- Posted // 2012-02-02 -

I heard a rumor a while back that In-N-Out Burger -- a popular burger chain throughout California, Nevada, Arizona, and, more recently, Utah -- prints bible references on their food packaging. Turns out, it's true.

The other day I drove to the In-N-Out Burger in Centerville and ordered a Double-Double: two hamburger patties with two slices of cheese. And, sure enough, subtly printed on a corner of the Double-Double wrapper was "Nahum 1:7." Not being particularly religious, nor well-versed in bible verses, it may as well have said "Napalm 20:20."

Doing a little biblical research, however, I discovered that Nahum 1:7 is a bible passage saying, essentially, "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him."

Digging a little deeper, I discovered that other biblical references appear on various In-N-Out Burger packaging. Such as: Proverbs 3:5 on the milkshake container; John 3:16 on sodas, and Revelation 3:20 on the regular hamburger and cheeseburger wrappers.

The latter -- Revelation 3:20 -- says "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." And, would you like fries with that?

I'm glad to see that God is still on the lips of the non-believer.   Do your research folks, he makes the ordinary exraordinary!  He is the Great I Am, the Living Truth, the Rock, the Lilly of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star.   He is Grace and Mercy and forgives all.   Love Him and see his Awesomeness.   Thank you for spreading the Word.

I guess I should at least be glad they aren't using quotes from that ridiculous cult pseudobible, the book of mormon.  What a pile of crap that is.  Also it seems their references are pretty unobtrusive as I have eaten there many times and never even noticed them, or maybe I am just not very observant.

BS.  No "religious" company is going to name themselves with the vernacular for a sex act.

This is column knowledge. I sure hope you weren't paid for writing this.

Posted // February 3,2012 at 15:19 - Aha! And here I thought I was missing out, wishing I had me some of that column knowledge, like architects and porn stars do. Don't hold it against me... Hey, if In-N-Out (saying that always reminds me of Clockwork Orange) used verses like Psalms 137:9, or II Kings 18:27, or even Deuteronomy 21:18 - 21, It'd be a helluva lot more interesting.

And it's stupid, really. I'm getting so sick and tired of Christians trying to pervade everything on the planet like god told them to. What's that? They think god told the to? Ah,shit! There's goes the neighborhood.

Atleast there aren't any from the Song of Solomon.
