Advertising And Product Names

  1. How much does advertising and product names influence us?

    Some product names bother me. Example: I pad, I phone, Youtube, etc.
    How much do labels like these get us to be self centered?
    Are they helping to create 'me me's, people focused on themselves?

    The term Christian(s). It's like become a bad word. Why is that?

    I don't even refer to myself as a Christian anymore. I tell people that I'm a believer, a believer in the bible, God, His Son, prayer, and that there is a true church out there somewhere.

    Please, please don't think I mean to take anything away from anyone. I'm always seeking to get as close to the truth always.
  2. The world has it's bothersome advertising slogans (i.e. "You're in good hand with..."). What's more bothersome is some of the slogans for Christian organizations. One good organization has the slogan, "The Name You Can Trust". That should be reserved for Jesus.

  4. Because some of the things fundamentalist Christians have managed to associate with Christianity.
