Thank God for Steve,
As some of you may know, Wal-mart had voluntarily joined the homosexual chamber of commerce. Not content with one back handed insult to Christian families, now Wal-mart is putting their money, actually your money, where their mouth is and donating money towards the legalization of homosexual marriage. Wal-Mart Contributes 5% Of Online Sales To Homosexual Group and Wal-Mart joins 'gay' chamber of commerce Company says it's just another routine business outreach
This will undoubtably bring about calls for boycotts. The problem is that all of the nationwide big retailers are in the same bed with Wal-mart and the homosexuals. And it is Christian families that rely upon the cost savings they find at Wal-Mart to make their dollars stretch. So, the call for a nationwide boycott of Wal-mart is not very practical. But, there is something we can do to let Wal-mart know that we are not happy and have a drastic effect on their bottom line at the same time.
First join the all out boycott of Wal-mart on the weekend after Thanksgiving. That will hurt them a little, not much, but it will let them know that we are not happy. But the biggy that will get their attention is to not buy anything perishable from Wal-mart. No perishables at all, no meat, no vegetables, no milk or dairy products, no eggs, nothing that requires freezing or needs to be kept cold. No fish, no bread, no butter, nothing that is perishable.
How bad will that hurt Wal-mart? Well, not only do they lose the sale, but, it cost a ton of money to get rid of garbage and garbage is what is left of perishables that do not sell.
Now I know this is going to make your food shopping more difficult, but by shopping the sales and by joining with another family or two and buying bulk, you ought to be ok. Here in Albuquerque, I have found that with a little care I can actually buy for less than the prices at Wal-mart. For instance bread at Wal-mart is 1.88, but at the bread outlet store I can buy it for 1.00. Vegetables at Wal-mart are always more than at Sunflower. Bananas at Wal-mart are 50 cents a pound, but at Save-A-Lot they are 45 cents a pound and at a couple of other stores I found them for 39 cents a pound. One sells them for 19 cents a pound when they start to get spots. So, a little work and you will not have any or very little negative effect on your wallet. But the effect on Wal-mart will be huge.
Ladies, as you shop, don't be like Eve and fall for the lie. Don't let Wal-mart do to you as the snake did to Eve. Don't be deceived by Wal-mart's insinuation that this is as far as they will go in undermining your Christian life and beliefs. For like satan, Wal-Mart is lying. Let's nip it in the bud.
Now the serpent was more subtile than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, 'Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.'" And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he(Adam) said, "I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself." And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said, "The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat." And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, "The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat." (Genesis 3:1-13 ACP/KJV)
Ladies, remember, as you make the choice of whether or not to boycott perishables at Wal-Mart, You cannot serve two masters: for either you will hate the one, and love the other; or else you will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. When you use your money to enrich Wal-mart, you are, with those dollars, enriching the homosexual agenda.
When God said to us through the pen of Moses, " If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Do you think He was kidding?
Do you think that maybe God does not approve of the homosexual life style? When God said through the voice of His first human creation, Adam; "This(Eve) is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
Help us nip this abomination of Wal-Mart in the bud. Let us draw the line now, and let us commit to watching the perishables on the shelves of Wal-Mart rot. Let's see if the homosexuals and their ilk can offset the financial loss of Christian families buying their perishables elsewhere.
While the all out boycott of Wal-mart is for the weekend after Thanksgiving, these days before Thanksgiving are a great time to start the perishable boycott. No turkeys, no beans, no squash or carrots from Wal-mart. Nothing that is perishable, no pies, no cream, no potatoes or anything that can rot. Let the smell of rotting food fill the noses of the management of Wal-mart to let them know what we think of their deplorable abomination of spitting in the face of Christ and His with their open support of the detestable, abominable, degenerate homosexual behavior.
I think that, like me, a lot of you actually like Wal-mart, so let me close with this. If you have a child that is disobedient, is it not easier to correct him or her at the onset of the disobedient behaviour than wait until it gets to be a habit?
God says it like this: He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes. ... The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes. When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness.
Let us not wash our hands of Wal-mart, but instead let us show them our displeasure and be prepared to carry this boycott on till the owners of Wal-mart contact the management and remind them that they are employees and that their job is not to be politically correct, but to cater to their customers.
Lord, with Your help, we can return Wal-mart to being a family friendly store, but if it be Your will that they not, well, then Lord will You help us find other places to shop to make our scarce resources stretch? In Thy name Lord JESUS, we ask and pray. Amen.
Sha'al shalowm Yruwshalaim.
Never ever forget this: There aint no purgatory!

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
