"Godly Goods": On the Christian Industrial Complex
A CRC REPRINT
NOVEMBER 10, 1997:  What's the hottest retail logo in America right now? Reebok? Tommy Hilfiger? Polo? Nope, it's the acronym WWJD, slapped on everything from wristbands to T-shirts to refrigerator magnets. According to the Dallas Morning News, the logo WWJD, representing the provocative question "What Would Jesus Do?" and meant to remind Christians to think about their actions, is now borne on millions of gifts and apparel items nationwide. The national retail chain Family Christian Stores, reports selling 225,000 of the WWJD wristbands in the last nine months alone. Here in Knoxville, the WWJD line of merchandise can be purchased, among other places, at Cedar Springs Christian Store, located on North Peters Road. But that's not all you will find at Cedar Springs. An afternoon's shopping inside this lavishly appointed 20,000 square foot Christian-lifestyle superstore and coffeehouse could send you home with everything from a video rental of Radicals—The Unbelievable Story of the Anabaptists to a child's plastic suit of armor with the word "Righteousness" boldly emblazoned across the chest, packaged as a "Christian Character Building Costume."

From a Fundamental Baptist position, the CCM industry is a true abomination because the Bible says so. David Cloud is one of the strongest voices from within this Christian movement as he voices his strong opposition to the CCM Industry from a Rootical Christian Perspective.

Promoting Rush Limbaugh, dissing Rasta: 'Holy'? (by Messian Dread)
A CRC REPORT
Today, I came across a very interesting person on the "Lion of Zion" message boards. Christafari endorses this person, as we will see later.

This person calls himself "Holy Man", and he's pretty vocal about certain people who he would call "unholy". He likes to promote alcohol-free beer while posting adverts that say "Drink Guiness, it is not a sin" and while he pretty much places an anathema on every Rasta using a definition which is not in accordance with reality, He considers Rush Limbaugh to be his friend.

COMPETITION OF THE MINISTERS
A CRC REPORT
In the Christian Industry, Christianity is transformed into a product which must be bought or sold. 

Still, the industrialists refuse to admit this and claim that they are "ministers". They demand, that they are acknowledged as workers in the Christian Church.

But what kind of Christianity appears when they are acknowledged as such?

THE SPIN ON CCM AWARDS
A CRC REPORT
WWW, September 27, 2006 - Recently, Christian artist JAH Pickney posted a news item on the Dubroom Messageboards, wherein he announced how he was nominated for the "Marlin Awards". These awards are given to major players in the "Reggae" branch of the Christian Industry, also called "Caribbean Gospel" or "Gospel Reggae". 

The posting obviously turned into a very interesting discussion about the idea of having such "Gospel Music Awards". Are these awards a proof of the fact that the Christian Industry is just that, an industry, or can bilical justifications be given to such ceremonies?

A report.
