What about that boycott?

According to Yahoo Business, Target’s stock has taken a hit the last couple of quarters, and it appears the trend is expected to continue for a while.

Why is that? It’s because fewer people are shopping there.

And why is that? Well, here are the five reasons they listed:

  • Groceries
  • Prescription Medications
  • Apple (electronic products)
  • Fashion
  • Amazon

So let’s do a real quick run-down of that list one more time: Groceries – check. Prescription Medication – check. Apple products – check. Fashion – check. Amazon – check. The national headline news boycott of Target due to their ridiculously PC, morally bankrupt, and dangerous bathroom policy – ???

I guess the boycott had nothing to do with it!

I’m not trying to do any damage to the direct context of Revelation 17, but when the beast and the harlot run this nation’s news media outlets, it’s not only important to pay attention to what gets mentioned – it’s important to pay attention to what doesn’t get said when it comes to the cost of sin on our nation.

So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Revelation 17:3-5)

No Aim

Since replies are limited to Tim Hester’s secret method (how’d he do that?), I’m choosing this way of replying to Richard’s article on the “Greatest Problem in the Church.” It is related closely to what Richard wrote.

It takes aim to shoot a firearm, an arrow or a space shuttle. It takes aim to throw a football, a basketball, or shoot a golf ball. Corporations realize the importance of aim whenever they set their purpose statements and goals. But, how many churches take aim in the important things they do?

No preparation of men to become elders means no aim. No goals for spiritual or numerical growth mean no aim. No purpose statement means no aim. Churches that have those programs, purpose statements and goals take dead aim. They know where they want to take the church and how to get there.

The rest, if they ever get there at all, go by accident. That, my brothers and sisters, is tragic, and does not serve the Master well at all.

Another Possible Government Takeover

Christian Post columnist, Dr. Tony Beam, reports that “the Federal Government sees business in America as a target rich environment ripe for takeover.”


If it succeeds, the State could stop the preaching of the gospel and force private church-run schools to abandon Christian principles in hiring, plus change the way these schools hold students accountable to Scriptural principles.

Brethren, if this happens, our freedom of religion, i.e., to worship as the New Testament directs, will be in grave danger.
