Grocery Store Ad Reminds Customers Heaven Has a Wall, Hell Has Open Borders

A family-owned grocery store chain in Arkansas raised a few eyebrows when they promoted the concept of a border wall, noting that Heaven has one while Hell does not.

The print ad has caused controversy with some customers wondering why the chain felt a need to get involved in a border-security debate while promoting sales on ‘fresh ground beef’ and ‘boneless pork loin.’

The business, Mac’s Cashsaver, sent a weekly ad mailer to four locations which read, “Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.”

Well, they’re not wrong.

Controversy

The store still managed to raise the ire of a few people who disagreed that a political statement should be included in their weekly grocery flyer.

“It just doesn’t make any sense,” one customer told KARK while shopping at one of the Cashsaver stores. “Why would they put that on there?”

Employees at the store said they had received several phone calls about the ad, but the report doesn’t indicate if they were predominantly against or supportive of their actions.

“I didn’t have a problem with it,” another customer admitted. “If they want to come here, they can come here legally.”

Jack Digby, the store manager, is also supportive of the message.

“I am for the company and I am for God,” Digby said. “There’s nothing wrong with what that statement says.”

Heaven Has a Wall

The grocery store’s statement echoes that of Pastor Robert Jeffress who countered House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s assertion that walls are somehow immoral by noting Heaven has one.

“A wall is an immorality,” Pelosi claimed without evidence. “It’s not who we are as a nation.”

“The Bible says even Heaven itself is gonna have a wall around it,” Jeffress said during a Fox & Friends appearance. “Not everybody is going to be allowed in. So if walls are immoral, then God is immoral.”

The company told local news affiliates that it stands by the message and intends to include more in future weekly mailers.

  • ["But no one is saying walls in general are immoral. It’s a wall based on racist fears & used to justify cruelty that’s immoral."]

    The US border walls are based on securing our borders to protect the American people from illegal immigrants, drug smugglers, and human traffickers from entering the USA illegally and doing harm and killing American citizens, which there is a record of this happening thousands of times, and the border walls are also based on enforcing our immigration laws. So according to Democrats, securing our borders, protecting the American people, and enforcing our immigration laws are "based on racist fears & used to justify cruelty that’s immoral."

  • Make no mistake, that Pastor Jeffress was making a negative statement toward Pres. Trump and supporting Piglosi by adding [“But no one (Piglosi) is saying walls in general are immoral. It’s a wall based on racist fears & used to justify cruelty that’s immoral.”]. This is how the left keeps their lies going, by twisting it to still look immoral!

  • If the news media is allowed to lie and twist everything to make trump look bad then a private business should have the right to express their true feelings.

  • Arkansas native here. The grocery store is called Mac's Fresh Market and it's based primarily in Louisiana, though there are some in Arkansas, including my hometown.

    I thought it was a good, clever move on their part. In another ad, they put in a reference to Reagan's pro-life quote talking about how abortion supporters have already been born.

  • But the NEW Heaven and new earth will NOT have walls! This old world will be cleansed, burned and purified to accept the NEW earth! Jesus will set up his NEW kingdom in Jerusalem just as he SAID he would! Hell will stay the same! Walls will not be needed, for where would the occupants GO? It's a bottomless pit! The deep abyss will have carcass's that won't die, pain that won't subside, but sinners will be able to see Heaven from across a deep divide they cannot cross! Seeing all their innocent victims who are victims no longer! Including all the unborn, unwanted babies, children, just as Jesus said "Suffer (allow) little children to come unto me, forbid them NOT, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven"! Being free, joyful, secure, for eternity just like all Gods children will be! The ONLY reason there are walls in Heaven, is because Satan still reigns on earth, seeking whom he will devour! He and God converse, and he STILL thinks he can win over God in Armaddedon! THAT'S why he is so anxious to get as many clueless souls as he can to help FIGHT the RIGHT! He knows he will spend eternity in the place "built for the Devil and his angels"! He needs "Wicked Warriors" and from the shape of our world, he's making good time! That's why hell won't have a wall! It's a pit where none can escape! While the earth burns and turns into a waste land, God's children will be in Heaven! I cannot understand why anyone would serve Satan who can offer nothing but money/material things which he USES to buy your SOUL! When they have an option Satan could/would EVER offer! It's not the WEALTH that is a sin, but what you do to GET it! God offers; Eternity in Heaven, compassion, Grace, mercy, forgiveness of ALL your sins! Satan gives NOTHING! I KNOW because I was one of his victims! Along with my own selfish desires, he gave me pain and heartache through what my sins COST me! Especially, my youth!
