THEY’LL KNOW WE ARE CHRISTIANS BY OUR . . .
Walking through Home Depot I noticed that not only are Halloween decorations up but Christmas ones as well, and I went over to see where the products were made. China, of course, a nation that imprisons Christians and other religious minorities.
If we claim to be Christians, how can we buy Christmas decorations from a nation that uses what amounts to slave labor and has held and continues to hold people as prisoners in so-called “re-education centers?” Yes, Christmas decorations made in other countries may be a little more expensive but then we are not supporting religious repression.
This holiday season, we can show our support of religious minorities in China by not buying decorations manufactured there. This holiday season we could even make our own with our children or grandchildren. This holiday season we can support the work of such organizations as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and International Christian Concern as they try to help religious minorities in China.
