America's Disgusting god

A man lost his life during a worship service on Black Friday. Throngs of people were in line to enter their center of worship when they burst open the doors and trampled upon 34 year old Jdimytai Damour (pictured right). The sheer force of their entry bent the hinges on the doors and left Damour dead.

The place of worship: Wal-Mart

The Apostle Paul spoke of such worshipers as were at the Wal-Mart on Friday, November 28, 2008, in Philippians 3:18-19. The apostle said:

"For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things."
You don't see people lining up like this for worship on Sunday at your local church, but if you put on a sale to save people $5 they'll come. The god of materialism reigns supreme. These people's god is their appetite, their minds are only set on earthly things, and their glory is now their shame. The $5 they saved is now nothing but shame. They can now show off their latest DVD while holding an obituary in the other hand. How sad and how disgusting.
