This blog is inspired by a trip to a Christian bookstore in search of new study resources. Browsing around the store looking and the various materials that were on display, I ran across a theme that was quite shocking and absolutely appalling. There in this particular bookstore that I was in, I am looking directly at a book called "The Gay Bible".
My mouth instantly dropped in awe as this blasphemy staring my directly in my face in a place that is a representation of our Lord and Savior. Now, do not be confused, I am not ignorant to knowledge of things like this existing, I was caught off guard on where I found the item being sold. So as I am standing in the middle of the aisle, stunned, an employee of the store asks "Can I help you find something, Sir?" I replied back "Dude, this is a gay bible in a Christian store!" Very nonchalantly he replied to me "Yes, it is." To the employee there was nothing wrong with this picture; this sin is being supported by supposed followers of Christ. I rebuked this bible and walked directly out of the store. What happened to the people of God raising up the standard and not conforming to the ways of the world?
I am writing this to encourage Kingdom people that are not only in business or about start a business, but all of God's children not to let your blessing be perverted by the world. Pray for guidance and allow the Holy Spirit guide you through all decisions. The enemy has tricks and traps set everywhere; we have to be prepared for them.
I want to leave you all with this scripture out of the New Living Translation: "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to now God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect" Romans 12:2 NLT
