The most glaring inconsistency between Hobby Lobby’s ethical proclamations and its business decisions concerns the matter of religious liberty. The craft store chain is hailed by conservatives as standing up to Uncle Sam and fighting for religious freedom. Yet Hobby Lobby imports billions of dollars worth of bric-a-brac from a nation that denies 1.35 billion citizens freedom of worship.
If Hobby Lobby was concerned with religious freedoms — not just those of conservative American Christians — it would quit doing business in China.”
The New Deal of the New People of the New Covenant is this:
I will make you a blessing and in being a blessing you will be blessed.
The agenda of the Holy Spirit is not to “bless me” with hopes that I will pay it forward. The Holy Spirit fills us with the power of the love of God to bless all of Creation and in doing so we will experience blessing.
Think about it. Bless me and make me a blessing, or make me a blessing and that will be my blessing.
Restore the kingdom to us? OR Restore us to the kingdom?
SUBTLE DISTINCTION. MAJOR DIFFERENCE.”
