I’m not talking about some 3rd world nation now. Jdimytai Damour, 34, had been hired by an employment agency as a temporary worker at the Wal-Mart store in Valley Stream and had been on the job about a week when he died. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound man died of asphyxiation after being crushed by a crowd the Friday after Thanksgiving. They broke down the electronic doors in frantic pursuit of bargains. At least four other people were treated at hospitals, including a woman who was eight months pregnant.

James 5:5-6

5Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

6Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. (Not opposing you)

That man at Wal-mart was not their enemy. Now you know what savages do at Christmas! They start out by trampling an innocent man to death to save $20 on a television set.

What have we become? A lawless mob of savages that have little or no regard for our fellow man? How do we live with ourselves setting in front of our televisions saying "I got this killer deal at Wal-Mart."

Is that what our lives have been reduced to? A mindless, thoughtless mob of bargain hunting vampires willing to kill to fill that void "materialism", all the while, lacking everything, because as a nation we don’t ask God to fill that void in our lives?

It is easy to spot a nation that does not have eternal life. There focus is on the things of this world and not on the things of God.
