Do you wonder sometimes before the purchase of your next Apple product, do I need this? Could I do without this? What about the homeless people in my city? What about the starving people around the world? 70% of the US economy is based on consumer spending, yet it's also perceived within it's borders as the religious moral authority in the world? When we read about Jesus, he wore simple clothes and walked everywhere helping the poor, sick and disabled. Is there a contradiction here?? Confession: I'd like to confess I've purchased my fair share of Apple products, but now I buy second hand ones or live without. I find it hard to resist, but I also don't want to be sucked in, i want to be able to say no, I can resist.
