What got me dwelling on this thing is all the ads that I'm getting in the mail at home and we're getting at the church of the so-called "Christian" bookstores advertising their products that they sell in their stores.
The word Christian means Christ-like. This thing about the "Christian" bookstores has bothered me for a long time now. If Christian means Christ-like then shouldn't the store itself have a testimony of being like Christ? Well...they sell books that they call bibles that are perverted versions of the Word of God. They sell writings by heretics that blaspheme the Almighty God. They sell music that is wicked and ungodly. They hire cashiers and people to work in their stores that have earrings and colored hair. They let the women in the store wear breeches and dress contrary to how the Word of God says to dress. Is any of this Christ-like? I say absolutely not!! It burns me so bad when I go into these places to get the good material that is in there (and it is becoming less and less all the time I've been noticing) and see the people dressed and looking like they do and then to hear the ungodly music they play as I shop there. Then you see on displays books like "The Purpose Driven Life" that is leading thousands of people contrary to what God says.
As far as I'm concerned...these stores are not "Christian" bookstores but are "Religious" bookstores. Religion is being masqueraded as Christian everywhere you look. Yet we cannot even hear Christmas being mentioned anywhere in stores. It is "Happy Holidays" so as not to offend anyone. Folks...look for "Christian" influence to be done away with little by little. We who truly know Christ need to take a stand and live as God wants us to and present ourselves as Christians...Christ-like!!!
