Are the Walton's Family(Walmart) Christians?

re the Walton's Family(Walmart) Christians? Or even any of the other major religions around the world?

The reason I am asking is because Sam Walton(deceased) and ther family do not practice any true Christian Values or any other religious values from other religions.

They are the majority shareholders in Walmart. They seem to care about all the employees working for them. Walmart aka Waltons' Family pays as little as possible for their employees, exploit labor, use child labor, rather see their employees die from poor healthcare coverage. We all know the story.

Also, Waltons family barely in any contribute or donate to any charities, religions, or churches. They lack any moral or ethic values. They lack any Christian, Jewish, or any other religious values.

They are probably the selfish family in the world. Borderline Evil!

Do not judge , because with the measure you judge you will be judged.

Only God truelly knows the Waltons, therefore be utterly carefull with saying things about the personalities of these people.

Its exactly the reason why they became rich, simply said you don't become rich from spending money,whatever they save on employees or do not give on charities flows back into their own pockets.

You only look at the waltons because they come in the news, it only proves that your views are narrow, why are you conserned about the Waltons instead of all the people shooting eachother? Why do you condemn them not being Christians while you don't see the stake in your own eyes? Surely you are right exploitation is a bad thing that should be adressed, but have you noticed that they are 'out of reach' for you? You should draw a circle of reach within your mind and keep yourself busy into loving and helping those people which your hands can reach. Maby if you one day can reach the waltons you could bring your message of consideration to them, i don't blame you for adressing this , but you can only reach out to those who you can touch,right?

I can only tell you that there is justice in the universe, and that all the explotation and the eventual bad stuff that makes the waltons live in darkness will come back on them, please also take in consideration that you 'can't' do anything about it on 'being' a walton, i bet most of the kids aren't even involved rather sucked up by the company, and on the other hand you should also 'try' to see a positive side on it, namely that they provide a service too. Most people that shop there i hear are rather content about wallmart, the people who work there are treated like garbage however. You also have to take in aspect the 'size' of a company, the bigger it is the harder it becomes to maintain in a proper manner. These people have a lot of responsibility for a lot of people, and scandals aren't uncommon for major companies like microsoft,wallmart,or enron. The unions have to properly fight for their personel, and wallmart should be forbidden to forbid their employee's enlisting to a union.

I myself have worked in a supermarket too in europe, and they treated me absolutely like crap. So its not wallmart alone, i still have traumas from it, its just horrible when they shout at you, but really it happens in more companies. Maby there's a christian union there in America who could fight for the rights of the people who work in wallmart? Even the waltons have to learn their life lessons here on earth, God put them there to begin with so please do not condemn because your only condemming yourself.

Just wanted to warn you if I was you I wouldn't judge them why, b/c God is going to judge you on the same thing on everything you just judged them on there christian values and everrything you metioned on this. That counts are for those days when you weren't saved and good right by God.For we really don't know if they are or aren't. Instead of judging them start pray for them. But how can you take the beam out of their eye and you have a mold in you own (a verse in the bible somewhere had to parahize it) I will be pray for both you and the walton's family God Bless

I doubt if you got any of this information from investigating for yourself but are probably repeating what you have been told by others who probably have a vested interested in bad-mouthing the Waltons.

Wal*Mart is the largest, most successful retailer in the world and is non-union. When that happens the unions that would like to be involved start a smear campaign to try to get public support for their cause. So far Wal*Mart employees have turned down unions.

Before you continue your smear compaign I would suggest you write or call the Wal*Mart coporate office and ask them the questions you want answered.

As far as wages are concerned they pay as much as McDonalds or any other fast food chain and no one is forcing anyone to work for whatever it is Wal*Mart pays. And Wal*Mart has many employees who have worked their way into supervisory and management positions who have been with the company for many years.

This states not to hypocritically judge another. Well, we must DISCERN others because ...

[bible]Matthew 7:16[/bible]

... we should not get tangled up with them if they are not right with God.

It seems like almost everyone gets this all mixed up.

Plus, if they treat their employees badly it's up the the employees to quit.
