We Are In A Bad Place

You know evangelical Christianity in America is in deep trouble when the folks at ABC News knows something goofy is going on. In an online article, two writers ask "WWJB: What Would Jesus Buy?"
Worship has a new look now that the Bible, God and church have become commodities. From the Bible Bar to Holy bottled water, to quench your spiritual hunger and thrust, some marketers are selling religious merchandise in the hopes of spreading their faith.

But this 21st century way of approaching the relationship between God and man is not what some are used to. The thought that consumers can buy a bobblehead Jesus to act as a co-pilot, or attend Florida's Holy Land theme park when they're looking to blend faith and vacation, troubles critics.

"Turning everything religious into a little plastic toy can cheapen religion, trivialize it," said Beliefnet.com editor in chief, Steve Waldman. "The other danger is that people will think that by wearing a "Jesus is my homeboy" t-shirt, that that by itself makes them a good Christian."
Do you know of anyone who was ever converted because of somebody's tee-shirt or bumper sticker or some other article? Tell us about it.

Jeff,
I saw the fish on the back of someone's car and went to Captain's Galley. I felt impressed by the fish to turn in and order flounder fillet.
Hope this helps

Hi Jeff - this isn't a comment on this post. I can't figure out how to contact you otherwise. (sorry!) GREAT blog! I just discovered it. All my attempts to go to "what I've written" have been unsuccessful. Can you help? (Everything at "linkup.com" come back as no good.)
