Taking a walk in a nearby village I thought about the two shops that have Buddha statues in their windows. One shop sells New Age paraphernalia and has yoga and meditation, so you would expect them to have idols. Then, there is another shop that has a manicure service; it has a large statue of Buddha in the window. Why, I don’t know, unless that is the owner’s religious belief.
I thought, “How sad that there is only one shop in town that has a statue of Christ and two of Buddha.” At that very instant I looked up at the shop I was in front of and I noticed the the shop I was thinking about – they had removed the statue of Christ with His hands outstretched!
Now, I know that we should not have any statues but the point is that there is a complete lack of Christianity on display.
I wanted to go into the store (which makes tombstones) and ask why, but no one was in. I wanted to ask why Christ’s statue was not there. The answer I’d probably get would be that they didn’t want to offend anyone.
The sad thing is, the businesses that has a Buddha on display aren’t afraid of offending someone that is not a Buddhist. They still do business even if some people are offended. But I’m sure there are those who call themselves “Christians” that still goes to the shop that does nails and to the other shop for yoga.
It’s about time that Christians stop going to the stores that have any kind of heathen display. Of course, the liberals would call us haters or bigots. Good, let them! If Christians followed God’s Law, the heathen statues would be destroyed.
The Judeo-Christians would themselves say we must be tolerant; those of other religious beliefs have their rights. Actually, they don’t have rights under Yahweh’s Law. The reason is, that they would destroy Christian society and even Christians themselves. They will change God’s Law into their own; this, you can see in all former Christian countries.
Christian store owners, have something on display that you are a Christian. And Christian customers give your business to Christian owners whenever possible.
