The Fear

Engaging with culture is important and that means pop culture too. While driving the other day I switched on the radio and caught a line of a Lily Allen song that made me listen to the whole thing.
It's a clever song, it's both a consumer anthem and biting, savage critique of consumer culture. This line stood out
"And I am a weapon of massive consumption and its not my fault it's how I'm program to function"
The media say we're living in a consumer culture, our pop singers say we are in a consumer culture and some in the church say we're in a consumer culture. So who in the church is leading any kind of response to this?

Still, here's the song...have a listen
