I am not a fan of Jesus Junk. Normally, I don’t bregrudge someone’s ability to make a living, but Christian bookstores and Christian companies that sell trinkets to them are driving me crazy. A while back, I walked into the children’s section of our local Christian bookstore and behold…David and Goliath action figures. Dress up sets, including the breastplate of rightiousness. Huh?
Christians are copycats. And not even good ones. These Jesus trinket-sellers are preying on our desire to follow Christ in every area with less than quality directions as to how. We need to be leading the way in creating art. Over the next several weeks I will be throwing in a post each week about why I like Christian book, but not their bookstores…Stay tuned!
Do you have reasons why you dislike Christian media or retailers? Email me and maybe you’ll make my future posts.
