What God says about turning our back upon Him AND a few human beings say about our concern regarding trying to live in Christ and under  the principles He gave us to keep us from sin, self and societal destruction.

 

Listen to our one minute contrast between J.C. Penney and Chick-fil-A

First a few verses from God’s Word:

 

Jeremiah 12.17

But if any nation will not listen, then I will utterly pluck it up and destroy it, declares the LORD.”   [My comment:  As you will see, the godless deny His Word and rational thinking as their hearts become hardened to truth.]

Jeremiah 6.16

Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

 

Jeremiah 9:23,24

Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.”

Here’s what a few humans said about our concern regarding:  J.C. Penney CEO reassurances don’t ring true

There are gay people deal with it. Thanks for letting me know where to shop. JC Penney here I come.

Email #2:

Oh Bill, believe it not, not everyone cares about your phony Christian beliefs. To most rational, grownup people there is no problem with homosexuals, even though you are obviously hung up on them. Many of us are sick to death of your constant stream of lies. You are told the truth but you deny it.

Howdy. It appears that someone who thinks they’re clever has signed me up for your anti-GLBT newsletter against my will. I’m largely uninterested in protecting an artificial ideal of “traditional family” that only existed on fictional 50’s TV (the 50s, for real people, was a lot less idyllic). However, I won’t waste both our times shooting holes in your argument (largely because you won’t listen and I don’t know you well enough to take the effort).

Please remove me from your list. And let’s keep it polite and dignified. I won’t call you a frothing bigot, you won’t call me a socialist facist (which would be silly because they’re complete opposites), we both just accept that I was fraudulently signed up for this and that mistake needs correcting.

Have a better one.

Poor stupid fool. J.C.Penney does not have any need of racist,bigoted or homophobic customers.You and others of your ilk should go elsewhere. Hell springs to mind.
