Some people have wondered why we do not “sell” our Christian books and teaching resources like other churches and ministries do. The reason is that we do not believe in Christian profiteering or merchandising the Word of God.
“We do not sell the word of God for a profit as many people do.” – 2 Corinthians 2:17
All of our bookstore resources are handpicked for truthfulness and resourcefulness – not for sales potential, nor to make a quick buck. Ninty percent of what’s sold in Christian bookstores today is either spiritually worthless, or downright heresy. The Christian retailer’s motto today seems to be, “It doesn’t matter if it’s spiritual garbage –since it’s popular, let’s sell it, so we can keep making more money.”
All of our Christian teaching resources are available on a “donation” basis.
We don’t put a price tag on any of it for fear of merchandising the Word of God. When you support our Christian ministry with your love offerings and financial gifts, we like to bless you back with something of spiritual benefit to your faith in Christ.
Our Bookstore Policy is this: Even if you cannot afford to send the suggested donation amount, but you believe that God wants you to order one of our products, send us what you can afford — no matter how small the amount. We will trust the LORD to make up the financial deficit some other way, or, through someone else who can give more generously to our ministry.
By operating our Christian Bookstore in this ethical manner, we hope to avoid the financial huckstering, greed, and mass merchandising that goes on in many of our churches, ministries, and the Christian industry today.
