“Jesus Junk”

I don’t normally read Sharper Iron, but my mom sent me an insightful article on the commercialization of Jesus. I agree with most of what that the author says. Jesus Junk–like the “Armor of God PJ’s” and the infamous “Godweiser” T-Shirt and all the WWJD junk and the Christian mints (seriously!)–serves to devalue the Christian faith.

The article has a rational discussion of this trend and why it needs to stop. All I can add is this: You aren’t really speading the gospel this way. You’re just making Jesus into a brand name. Stop it.
