Black Friday: One More Black Friday Yet Different from Previous Ones

The curse of Black Friday

Black Friday” is the best little holiday dedicated to covetousness that the media and business could invent.

They continue to relentlessly flog it–as they have done for the past 20 years–but most resist its siren call of cheap merchandise and cheaper promotion which attempts to prey upon the cheapest emotions.

Of course, Black Friday kicks off the annual “Season of Greed.

Is the reader excited?

Campers already staking out Black Friday bargains – In 2013 America, people trade their time–a finite resource –for a few trinkets or 30% off the latest bauble which will be forgotten by this time next year.

The Season of Greed is almost upon us.

Black Friday 2013 Promises Complications for Online Shoppers – Black Friday and the Season of Greed is so very far away from the little town of Bethlehem…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

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

And yet, though Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) 2018 has much in common with its predecessors, one HUGE difference has been noticed by more than one observer.

This year’s Black Friday is missing many of the shoppers.

Instead of traffic jams, parking lots at big box retailers have empty spaces.

Instead of wall-to-wall shoppers, the aisles of stores looked emptier than before.

Instead of the masses lined up for the latest trinkets, it was the same old, tired grunts–and very few of anyone else.

Has Black Friday lost its allure?

Have the masses tired of greed?

Hard to believe any of that is true.  So expect Black Friday 2019 to feature MORE ads, more promises, bigger discounts and a return to the good, old coveting which made America what it is today.

DID the reader rise while it was still dark, stand in line or otherwise participate in any of the traditional Black Friday rituals?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
