Americans often turn to nationalism in moments of patriotic furor. Slogans like "buy American" encourage citizens to purchase products that support local companies rather than foreign ones.
effects of "buy American" are appealing because spending money on an
American company ensures money stays in America and enriches our
nation. If Americans buy from foreign companies the money leaves the
country and enriches foreigners.
In Romans 12:10, Paul
told the Roman Christians they should prefer one another. It seems
logical this preference should involve issues of business, and
what better way to show preference then by supporting businesses run by
fellow brothers and sisters in Christ?
Just as buying
local enriches the local economy, buying Christian enriches the
Church. Money represents a certain amount of power, the power to invest
in causes, goods, and people. Christians should think twice about who
they give money and power to.
rather your community's power were wielded by members of the Church
or by greedy secular amoral post-modern
