the parallels between the way advertising works and the way sin/temptation entices us are many.

watch this short clip on how a perferctly ordinary (no disrespect intended) woman is made to look like a supermodel in order to sell the masses what the product being advertised alone couldn’t do for the model.

sin and temptation do the same thing in our lives. making promises of satisfaction and fulfillment that they can never keep, our sinful desires elude us with promises of long term peace, fulfillment, pleasure, and satisfaction – all of which they are totally unable to deliver.

may we see these attacks for what they are- false advertising.

[this is not an endorsement for the website at the end of the clip. it may be fine, but i have not seen it]
