Read the news story here from USA Today:
But even though the merchandise is gone, the debate remains. Is it a symbol of heritage, or hate? And the simple answer is this:
It doesn't matter.
It really doesn't matter. The Bible says if something you do causes another harm, you need to stop doing it. If eating meat causes your brother to sin, then don't eat meat.
As Christians, we are to always be conscious and aware of our brother's feelings and beliefs. This is another perfect example of the "Me Generation" taking over. It doesn't matter if someone else is offended by what I do... I have the right to do it!
But do you? Do your brothers and sisters matter enough to you to change your offensive behavior? Or do you put yourself above them?
Before you take any action on anything, consider how your actions will affect those around you. Don't justify your actions.
"Why do you point out the speck in your brother's eye, when you have a plank in your own. Hypocrites." Yes, this was Jesus talking, and it still applies today.
So consider others above yourself. If your behavior is offensive... change it. There is no other option. Because it really does matter. You matter, and so do they,
Until next time:
Peace to you and yours,
