“I am the Lord, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me”

After reading the side of this particular pencil sharpener, God’s word came to mind.

“Therefore know this day, and consider it in your heart, that the LORD Himself is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. “  Deuteronomy 4:39  (emphasis added)

I am Other is a brand of school supplies and materials found at places like Target and elsewhere online.   Here is the website manifesto.   (I want to make it clear that this post is not about a fault with school supplies or educational materials.)  However, I do want to point out a possible mixed message the label attached might be sending.

Back to God’s word.

“I am the LORD, and there is no other; There is no God besides Me…  

That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other;
 I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.”    Isaiah 45:5-7  (emphasis added)

Now I do not know if Pharrell Williams who is behind this organization knew about what God said or not but I do know the name he chose sends a message to youth and consumers who buy the products.  His website makes the following statements:

“OTHERS believe individuality is the new wealth. Experiences are the new assets to acquire. Whoever is the most individual wins.”

“i am OTHER celebrates people who push society forward. The thinkers. The innovators. The outcasts. History has proven that it’s the rule breakers who have the power to change the world.”

What’s Your Worldview?

Whether people will publicly admit it or not, the worldview that “anything except God” is becoming more prevalent and acceptable in today’s world.  What about God’s way?  Whether Mr. Williams knows it or not his brand is pushing a message that self is better then God.  A Biblical Godly worldview has been replaced by a “self serving” worldview and is actually being pushed on us by everyone from companies such as Target, to online entities such and Yahoo and Google. Question.  Would such a company  “accept” clothing or school materials in their store that glorified the God of the Bible rather than us?   I think we know the answer.

I am interested in your thoughts.  If you have seen or bought school supplies and/or brands glorifying the God of the Bible in store from places such as Target, please let me know!

Does the Left Really Care About Women and Young Girls?

 

target_west_reynolds_road_lexington_ky_3_9568771360

Although Democrats and anti-Trump protestors claim they care about the rights of women and girls, some of us know what it is at the heart of this issue.  Let us take one prime example of how and why the Left is putting women and girls at risk over political correctness.

What is the moral standard of the Left?

Many have scoffed at a boycott of Target which earlier this year gave the green light to men using a women’s bathroom.   Besides it being an abomination against God (see Romans 1 from the Bible), this practice puts women and girls at risk of sexual predators attacking them.   I can say it’s wrong all day long because God say’s it’s wrong but the big question is by what standard do Democrats and the left who support his practice abide by?

Transgendered folks are people struggling in their life.  I will not discount that fact.  I struggle with depression and other issues.    When suicidal thoughts enter a person’s mind battling depression is it wrong? I have heard it said that it is not acceptable behavior.   But if God is not accepted, then who decides?  This is the fundamental problem facing liberalism and being anti God.   There is no standard.  Without a standard for right and wrong this puts everyone at risk.

What is your standard?  Do you protect women and children?  Will you protect women and young girls?  Until Target reverses their policy to protect women and girls from sexual predators and men who never belong in a women’s bathroom I will not shop with them.   By the way, merchandise-wise Target is my favorite store.  Yes not shopping with them really does hurt but not saying yes to the protecting women and children would hurt even more.

A Change of Heart: Target and the Boycott

I suggest a better way of reaching Target and anyone is to start by watching a movie called Audacity.   If you haven’t watched it already check it out here.

Someone in top management of Target made the decision to allow men to use the womans bathroom and vice versa.  Many people agree with this and because it’s sin (see the Good Person Test) against God what needs to happen is a change of heart.   Do boycotts change hearts?  No.   Who changes hearts?  God.

Headed for Hell

People at Target or not are all headed on a path to hell because of crimes against a holy God.   Yes, (there’s a long list) and we’re all doomed unless there’s a way of escape.     See the good person test.     There is hope however and it’s not man-made. God through Jesus Christ is the only escape and Savior from hell and judgment to come.   Are you ready?

Let’s get the word out about this movie.   If you work at Target or anywhere share it with your co workers, family and friends.    And top CEO’s at Target, have you watched Audacity yet?
