  No, this isn't another blog post to the mac vs. pc commercials.  However, I would like to note that I've been a proud mac owner since 2002, and that my now 5 year old mac is still serving my needs quite nicely, except that the hard drive is gradually getting quite full. 

This is a post about the Christian version of the mac and pc ads.  You all know the ads, and if you don't, well, then you're probably not reading this on the internet but instead found a crumpled up print-out that someone dropped in your hole in the ground and are reading this as a preface to using it for some unspeakable purpose, hopefully related to improving your own personal hygiene.  Anyway, the group Faith Visuals has produced a series of Christian parodies/homage's to the famous Apple ads. 

I'm not sure how to feel about this particular video, since I can sympathize and even agree with both sides.  Sure, it shouldn't matter if you don't dress up for church, but shouldn't you dress up if you can?

Faith Visuals has a website full of pretty interesting clips, ranging from humorous like these to some more serious ones, like this effective one about Jesus or this kind of bizarre one about love.  They offer them for sale for churches to use as visual aids.  You have to pay to download(hence no youtube link) but you can watch online for free.

I can't say that I'm a big fan of this kind of stuff in church(I'd rank it somewhere below a skit and above a plug for a local car dealership), but I think they'd be interesting for getting a good discussion going in a Bible study when you're running short on big ideas yourself.  As someone who's led Bible studies in the past, having a great topic or outline every week is not easy and sometimes you need something to help you when you have to, or just feel like, phoning it in a bit. 

Ok, that last bit probably lost most of my credibility with our core audience, so if you're still reading go to John Hodgeman's website and check out his other work.  Aside from being a funny guy on TV he's also a funny guy on the radio and in print.
