I'm showing you a clip that had the most impact on me. If you want to watch the entire video you can go to The Story of Stuff website.
I honestly can't watch this without crying. And you know what? It makes me feel duped. It makes me feel like an absolute fool to have fallen for this stuff. Especially those of us who are followers of Christ should recognize this stuff for the deception that it is. We need to wake up.
Today some friends and I prayed for the economy, jobs, the debt situation. This "golden arrow" that we serve kept coming to my mind.
*I believe that after 911, Bush did tell us to grieve, hope and pray, so ignore that part. He did also tell us to shop.*
This clip runs a bit long, but please, take some time to watch it. I think it's six minutes.
