The market is discipling today’s youth into “consuming animals”

Today’s Lian He Wan Bao edition quotes a hand phone shop owner saying that today’s youth are constantly changing their hand phones to the latest model from fear of losing face with their peers in not having the latest hand phone model— especially the latest iPhone.  Be assured that today youth are being “discipled.”  We are either discipling them into true disciples of Jesus, or the market is discipling into “consumer-animals” whose identity is primarily made by how many new goods they can consume in the shortest time possible.
