Boycotting Organizations Of This World

If you are a Christian,

You may boycott a few organizations due to that particular group supporting homosexuals. I understand where you are coming from and your reasons behind it (*Romans 1:24-27, *Leviticus 18:22, etc.). I do not necessarily disagree with your convictions on this matter, so please do not misunderstand what I am about to say or take offense.

Let me ask you, if this is your conviction, have you studied up on ALL companies you support? Have you studied to see if Wal-Mart or Kroger supports homosexuals? What about Target, the stores you buy clothes from, your glasses, movie theaters, or the restaurants you may enjoy? Just because it isn’t yet public, doesn’t mean it isn’t a possibility.

Let’s try to remember this – the majority of public businesses, even hospitals/doctors, have a worldly foundation. If the creators of such organizations are unsaved, you cannot necessarily find justice in boycotting them for they do not know any better. They were not raised on the same beliefs or standards that you may have been raised on.

To make their support of homosexuals public, it simply brings in more money for their companies. If you choose to boycott one company due to your personal convictions, amen! God gave you that conviction and I commend you for following through with it. But perhaps you should study up on all other businesses you continue to support (by purchasing their items) to see if they are also pro-homosexuality.

It is a little unbalanced, and perhaps will come off to unbelievers as a bit hypocritical, if you refuse to eat from certain restaraunts or drink from a particular coffee shop but you will still shop for clothes at your favorite stores if they all support the same thing that you are highly against.

We must always keep in mind, if the foundation is not Christian, you cannot rightly judge them for what they support; they do not know any different. They are doing what the world does.

Let’s all never forget where we came from or where we could have been if it wasn’t for God’s grace; and the sinful beings we still are today.

Just something to ponder.

*Romans 1:24-27
  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was met.

*Leviticus 18:22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
