Sellers of religious products on Amazon may have taken a big hit recently when Amazon employees incorrectly took down their ads.
CNBC reported that according to an Amazon representative, the company had formulated a new policy “which bans any ad that contains ‘religious content.’” In an email, the rep continued, “The other sellers who are currently advertising religious related products are doing incorrect practice, which may lead to their account suspension.”
But, Amazon is retracting its rep’s statements. A spokesperson for the e-commerce giant told CNBC, “The email that CNBC viewed contains inaccurate information and our long-standing policies have not changed. Corrective training is being provided to the relevant teams.”

This business owner has suffered from the oversight. “Our revenue on Amazon is directly connected with advertising we do, so this would be very detrimental to our business.” As of Friday afternoon, the ad had not been restored.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
