BLACK FRIDAY:

The Most Appropriately-Named Day of the Year

A few thoughts and observations on the day which kicks off the annual Season of Greed: Black Friday.

It’s a celebration of covetousness, greed and lust of the eyes in the “World’s Most Christian Nation™:”

Millions of Early-Bird Shoppers turn out on Thanksgiving

A cultural shift has taken place over the last 10-12 years: what little actual emphasis was on “thanksgiving” on Thanksgiving Day has been eclipsed by the spirit of covetousness.  Thanksgiving was about giving thanks for maybe a minute or two–during the grace at dinner and a few TV prayers.  Otherwise, the focus of the holiday had long ago morphed into food and drink, football games and travel.

Giving thanks” was an incidental happening.  But at least lip service was paid to the concept.

Sadly, even that has ceased in most households across the World’s Most Christian Nation™.

The Curse of Black Friday has, hour-by-hour, slowly edged into Thanksgiving until the actual event is a few hours of traditional Thanksgiving (a big meal with some family and/or friends) with Black Thursday-Friday consuming many hours of planning, researching and list-making.

Now, very clearly, the emphasis is on DEALS! and saving a few bucks on the latest electronic gadget.  Somehow, the Black Friday violence over sweaters marked down 40 percent is a more honest reflection of who Americans really are.

More than that, Black Friday is a perfectly-named day for the millions of church-goers who annually partake in its perverse madness.

In case anyone thinks that the Black Friday madness “just happened”:

  1. Start with a limited number of “deals”
  2. Add constant hype supplied by national and local media
  3. Stir in Americans hungry to save money: some because they are down on their luck; others, because money is very important to them.
  4. Top it off with family members demanding the items contained in the aforementioned “deals”

Black Friday has been planned from the beginning.

It’s a recipe for the brawls, fights and other displays of extreme greed featured on Black Friday–the most appropriately-named day of the year in the World’s Most Christian Nation™.

But the greed-spawned violence is really just another spectator sport for the apostate church-goers. It just another sick reality show for those who prefer to keep alive the lie that they are Christians.

Jesus stated the situation quite clearly in Luke 14:33.

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”

“Forsake all that he hath?”

After standing in line for an hour for 40% off, many Americans won’t even forsake that Chinese-produced sweatshop sweater.
