When is Enough — Enough?

C. Hayden
There comes a time when enough is enough. We are Christians because God so loved the world that
God sacrificed His only begotten Son Jesus to redeem us from the curse of the law which came about
due to the disobedience of mankind. But we are Christians in this world to be witnesses of God’s grace,
draw others into a relationship with Christ, encourage one another to good works, and be a light in an
ever-increasingly dark and immoral world. John 17:14-15 informs
us that we are living in this world, but we are not to be a part of
this world, not a part of its values. And the worlds values seem to
be increasing in separating itself from any semblance of caring for
God’s values.
Now I know many believers love to shop at Target, and I
am not calling for a boycott of the store. However, the business
world needs to start getting a clue of how aggressively anti-Christian
some companies are becoming to those who believe in Biblical values.
This past week, the retail giant “Target”, has just introduced a line of
“Transgender Wear” for their customers. The clothing company is
the brainchild of an avowed Satanist and trans-activist named
simply “Erik.” Now if Target would like to provide this product for adults who are transgender, that is
their choice. But much of the clothing “targets” (pun intended) to small children and toddlers with pro-
transgender messages (Although Target denies it is for kids). And as if this wasn’t enough, the London-
based company providing these fashion statements include satanic references with messages such as,
“Satan Respects Pronouns” as well as other satanic images and references to the devil.
You might say to me, “Well Pastor, the USA is a free country. They have a right to promote what
they want to promote, or think might sell.” And I would agree with you. But we as Christians, we not
only have the right, but also an obligation to speak out when we see major players in this world do
things that want to normalize immoral and dangerous messaging to our children, as well as adults. In
their attempt for inclusion, they exclude Bible believers, confirming the sinful direction and Godless,
spiraling downward, immoral curve our society is taking us.
As Ephesians 5:8-11 tells us,” ‘For you were
once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in
all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no
fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them .’”
May God bless you even more!!
