Christian Pizza

Seems like nowadays everything is being turned "Christian" and then marketed to the Christian subculture.  You can go to your local Christian Book Store and get testamints, with a scripture on every wrapper and allowing you to have good breath while you share the good news.  Even Christian items have become over marketed at times.  Prayer of Jabez anyone?  Even Hollywood is creating whole segments of production companies just for us!  Fox faith for example, which is now making "faith based, family friendly" films for Christians.  A lot of this was the result of Passion of the Christ, which was a very "family friendly" movie.

Now don’t get me wrong some of these things can definitely be good things.  In a way I’m glad that movies are being made with a desire to proclaim truth in mind, yet I also wonder who decides what makes a piece of art "Christian."  (Actually I didn’t know items could be saved.)  Others are just ridiculous in my humble (kinda) opinion.  For example, a girl at our church, back for the summer from college in the midwest, shared with Rachel and I about the Christian bowling alley in their town.  What makes it "Christian"?  You can’t smoke there.  Their tagline on the side of their building: Where Christians come to play!

Anyway, all this to say, I came across this video today from Community Christian Church in IL.  Kinda makes light of this particular trend.  Check it out:

So, what do you think?

    Does the Jesus-lover pizza have less calories? Can it save my thighs?

    My bro in law read a book in light to all of that. How we call coffee shops christian coffee shops. It’s like we have our own cult or something. but ya, i’ve never liked how 1. Christians copy what everybody else is doing instead of setting the bar, and at the same time segregating ourselves from the world after we copy them. It never quite made sense to me.

    i’m with ya — generally speaking, it’s a sad trend when Christians want to isolate or segment themselves instead of being a light IN the world. Not to mention the millions of dollars that Christian vendors will spend in marketing to… well.. Christians!
