THE POWER OF ADVERTISING


The neglect of the spiritual cannot be laid directly at the door of advertising.  It may be better laid at the door of the church [that] has failed to preach the God of the Bible, heaven and hell, repentance, faith, and eternal life.  It can be argued that a society only gets the advertising it deserves.  Yet the power to commend certain patterns of spending behavior to millions with regularity is an open invitation to orchestrate the covetousness, envy, lust, and desire to dominate, which lie in the heart of sinful man.
