“if you say so”
I have thought about just deleting this and not commenting, but my blog is my witnessing tool and I feel I should address this person’s comment. Apparently Anonymous thinks that this is my opinion only, and I want to assure the reader that it isn’t.
We all hear about boycotts and people spending their money wisely. If you were an environmentalist and a company that sold a product that you wanted used environmentally unfriendly practices in their testing for example, you wouldn’t use their products. You would use cruelty-free products. You spend your money on companies that support your beliefs. We all do it, and no one would say anything about it to anyone else.
As a Christian, I believe that this kind of marketing and consumerism is even more important, we aren’t just talking about saving owls or manatees, we’re talking about eternal life, and I for one will be more careful where my money goes.
I just reread both my previous post and the Anonymous comment, and maybe the commenter took issue with me having to pray over my laminating project. This gets into an area of Theological issues that is wide and diverse. Let me first give a little background into my beliefs. I believe in a spiritual realm. I believe in angels and demons. I believe that God uses angels to bless and comfort others and that Satan uses his demons for destruction and to lead people astray from the truth. It is real and I have felt the presence of both angels and demons in my life.
I also believe that prayer changes things and that it is a great source of comfort to the believer. I felt that I should pray over the cards not because the cards themselves were bad. No, the cards are an inanimate object and are inherently neutral; they are just paper and plastic. I guess what I said wasn’t exactly true, I should have clarified what I meant by that. I felt like I should have prayed about the whole issue so that I would receive comfort from the Holy Spirit about spending money in a store that was not pleasing to God. The cards didn’t need the prayer, I did.
The anonymous comment has made me think about some things however, and that is a good thing. 1) I need to be very clear and plain in what I say so that my thoughts and words are not misconstrued. 2) I need to be very sure of what I believe as a Christian and have support for my beliefs and not just thinking that I know what I believe.
The comment that I wanted to just delete and pretend wasn’t there will stay so that anyone reading my blog knows that I know what I believe.
