Did you ever notice the Bible verse, “John 3:16”, printed on the bottom of your Forever 21 bags? I did a long time ago. At first, I thought they might have been using recycled bags. But when they continued for years and years, I knew it had to be deliberate. I enjoy it. What a novel and unobtrusive way to preach to the masses.
A couple of weeks ago, I was shopping at the store online, and noticed several t-shirts with messages on them about God. I actually saw a couple in person just the other day. Both times I resisted the urge to buy one. And, I didn’t connect the dots between the messages, until two days ago.
An article on the Cut reported that the retailer is being accused of “Pushing a Christian agenda”. Funny how of all of the so-called agendas Forever 21 is allegedly pushing, people find this one offensive, isn’t it?
Here’s a verse: John 14:06 – Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Peace and blessings.
