Christian Boycotts?

On Wednesday Night, May 4th, at 6:30pm, we will study the tactics involved in fighting a Culture War. I've received several requests about using boycotts against corporations who use their money, advertising, and influence to promote immoral and unBiblical agendas.

     In Matthew 5:13, Jesus said “You are the salt of the earth... 14 “You are the light of the world... 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  With these words, Jesus was calling Christians to be "change agents" in this world. In the early days of our country, many of our elected officials were devout Christians who used their authority to influence the nation toward the Biblical standards of good and godliness.

     In recent years, secular humanism has increased leaving Christians on the losing side of the culture war. So, in the current environment, what does it mean for a Christian to be "Salt and Light"? Should Christians participate in boycotts to try to put pressure on corporations to change their minds and adopt a more Christian view of ethics and morality?

     That will be our Wednesday Night Question of the Week: Should Christians participate in Boycotts?
