The American Family Association said that despite “tens of thousands of consumer requests to recognize Christmas” and requests by the organization, San Francisco-based Gap Inc. has refused to use the word Christmas in its ad commercials and promotions. Online SourceRight up front let me say that these types of boycotts against retailers over whether or not they openly promote Christmas or some generic winter holiday IS THE WRONG BATTLE for Christians to be fighting! I could care less if Wal-Mart, The Gap, Macys, the Banana Republic or the Home Depot "recognizes Christmas". NONE of these corporations are Christian so why should I expect them to proclaim Christ?
My question for my Christian Brothers and Sisters is whether or not they are going to Boycott those Churches and Mega Churches where Christ is not preached, and there is no cross on their campus, yet alone in their worship services?
The bigger threat to Christianity are so-called "Christian Pastors" who preach so-called sermons to "meet the felt needs" of pagans rather than preach God's word in context and proclaim repentance and the forgiveness of sins in Jesus Name. (Luke 24:46-47)
If Christians should boycott anything they should be boycotting churches where Christ and Him Crucified for our sins is not recognized and proclaimed.
The list of churches that refuse to recognize Christ and the Cross is fairly large and growing. Ironically, many of the Christians that will be boycotting the Gap, attend and support churches that have long ago taken down their cross and censor the King of Kings and Lord of Lords in the name of being relevant.
But remember this one fact: The Gap will not stand before the Judgement Seat of Christ because The Gap is NOT a person. But, those pastors who refuse to proclaim Christ and have removed the cross from their sprawling mega-church campuses and from their sermons will one day have to give an account to Christ for their rebellion against Him.
