That's a huge bummer, and one that I give your friend props for following through with. From a Christian stance, the buyer was a bit naive, in that,
I assume, they assumed the items purchased were "cursed" based on the tattoos your friend had.
I say naive because they knew nothing, again I say, nothing about your friend, except their first impression. Based on the Misfits tattoo and the
like, they had reason to believe your friend was anti-Christian. Think about this for a second -- if someone came to you and just wanted to say hello,
but they had a "Jesus is my Co-Pilot" T-Shirt, 7 or 8 crosses on necklaces and cross tattoos across their neck, you'd make assumptions as to the
purpose of the hello, too.
So, all that to say, the Bible, post-Christ, has promised us victory over anything Satan may do -- which would mean, regardless of what your friend's
intentions, Jesus won, and the item being sold has no power, so to speak.
However, to speak to you, so what? If a person has an idea, does that idea have any less power because they're a hypocrite? Let's say when Newton
discovered the equations for gravity and motion, he said dogs should be beaten when they poo in the living room, but instead said "NO!" when his own
dog did so and that was it, would you disregard his theories?
We're all messed up. Heck, that's a cornerstone of Christianity. If you're the one who says you're not, I say you're a hypocrite and you just
joined the rest of us. If that's the measure by which we weigh theories, thought and ideas, then we need to go back to the stone-age because
everything you believe is wrong -- it was thought up by a judgmental hypocrite.
