GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD AND...CONSUME

"Society today is a consumer market, not given to much thought about anything--a society with a myriad of answers to choose from, any one of them as true as the next. This society does not question or contemplate meaning, it merely records data much as one would absorb sixty channels of cable TV all at once. It is a society incapable of making any lasting value judgments; whatever is printed or flashed on the screen is true… It should be pretty clear by now that most 'television ministry' has become merely one more channel of passive entertainment."

-- John Fischer in On A Hill Too Far Away

Graphic: one of several hundred traditional and quite peculiar artistic and commercial portrayals of Jesus at Images of Jesus.
