According to a Huffington Post article, a liberally minded religious group called Faithful America boycotted Hobby Lobby. This boycott was due to Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit against the government for mandating contraceptive coverage.
Hobby Lobby believes they shouldn’t have to pay for drugs that cause abortion. Faithful America believes a “woman’s right” to abortion trumps a baby’s right to life.
In Acts 4, Peter and John were criticized by religious leaders and told to quit preaching the gospel. They responded, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God.”
When we take a stand for our beliefs, it’s likely our worst enemies will be those who claim to be religious as well. Remember to be guided by God’s Word and serving an audience of One.
