Beware of the greeting card aisle

What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of ? Those things result in death !” – Romans 6:21 (NIV)

I was listening to the Back To The Bible radio show tonight and Dr. Woodrow Kroll and the BTTB staff are now going through the book of Revelation. In today’s show, they were focusing on the church in Pergamum and then discussed how immorality is so rampant today. Here’s a piece of the transcript of the show, with the example that Dr. Kroll used.

I have never heard of this…

Dr. Kroll:    “Now, I want to show you how prevalent this is in our society today. Just about the time that you thought that the greeting card racks had become full of everything and covered all the bases, somebody found an untapped market. It’s the untapped market of the mistress.

There is a line of cards today that is called, “The Secret Lover Collection.” What the founder of this line of cards says is, “This is a line of cards” (I’m quoting now), “committed to providing a greeting card collection with empathy and understanding, without judgment, to lovers involved in secret relationships.” So, you can go to the card store and buy your wife a birthday card and your mistress one at the same time.

Now, basically, the woman who is behind this collection says that she launched it because she saw a market. There was a need out there for cards for your mistresses. There was a need out there for cards for people that you are sleeping around with–and in sin doing so. As a result, this whole industry came into being because this is the way life is today. ”

And I thought the temptation reality show was bad. What are your comments on this ?

  1. Wow.
    This breaks my heart.
    The greeting card line wouldn’t have started if there was not promise of economic support.

  2. Also, under the encouragement of a pastor/friend of mine, I’ve been reading a Proverb a day. Meaning today, Nov. 9, I read Proverbs 9. I’ve been incorporating this as part of my daily routine.
    I never really paid too much attention to it before, but Proverbs has a lot to say to men about being aware of the temptations and seductions of the adultrous woman.

  3. I googled it. Found things as far back as 2005 so it’s been on the market for awhile, likely along with the adultery online dating site. The top article in the search, in discussion about it, made me cringe. It just looks like Romans 1.
