Jesus Junk?

I found this online earlier.

I find it to be quite an interesting commentary on the dichotomy of our faith and consumerism.

In other words, money and God, do they mix? I wonder if we've given ourselves a reason to answer "no".

Let me know what you think. Am I being too cynical and picky? Or, is this a good cause for concern?

Oh, and the music isn't completely -ahem- "clean". (Just don't go blaring the speakers and you'll be alright kids)

(Dichotomy is your word of the day. yay)

I buy a lot of christian t-shirts but that is because nudity hasn't caught on yet. I think the problem comes when we spend more money on jesus Junk then we do at the offering plate on sunday

In my opinion, some things are ok. They can be/are used as witness tools. But some things are completely unecessary. I completely agree with the point made at the end of the video- if you think about it, it's seriously true. Personally I would rather know that my money went to feed a child who's starving to death, not to feed my need for attention. I don't believe you were being cynical or picky. It's something that needs to be brought up more often...something people need to understand.
