Time to Turn Tables

Ok I have been doing a Bible study with a group of adults on Wednesday nights. We have been reading and discussing Galatians. It has been a blast teaching them the way that I would a group of high school or middle school students. One night we colored butterflies. Another night we worked on a resume for the Apostle Paul, what were his credentials? Tonight we are going through chapter 5 and talking about the Fruit of the Spirit. We will be enjoying some fresh fruit tonight!

As I was doing some research for an ice breaker or game for tonight's gathering I came across as interesting web site. I thought, "This has to be a joke!" But it isn't. I have a hard time figuring out why so many people are trying to get rich marketing Jesus. Listen to the product description:

What is it? 1in3Trinity is a faith-inspired, fashion and lifestyle branded energy drink and clothing company. Through innovative designs and faith-inspired art, 1in3Trinity hopes to share the Fruit of the Spirit and energize everyone in the mind and the body.

The 1in3Trinity energy drink is made of a special blend handed down from the flourishing vines and trees of the Holy Land mixed with B-vitamins, Vitamin C, herbs and antioxidants. Not only does this combination make for an abundant taste, but it also serves as a high-powered energy drink to give an extra boost any time of day. With only 10 calories and 3 grams of sugar per can, 1in3Trinity has still managed to pack in mighty flavor into every heavenly sip.

Fruit of the Spirit, the inspiration for much of the 1in3Trinity line, is a biblical term that sums up the nine visible attributes reflective of a Christian’s life. They are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Collectively, the virtues are the “fruits” that all Christians produce in their life through Christ. It is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit to produce in you the traits that are found in the nature of Christ. The fruit you bear is your witness to others of God’s love, grace, and mercy in your life.

Come on! Faith inspired art and fashion? And it is good to know that you are drinking fruit from the Holy Land, all other fruit is bad?

I would love to hear your comments!
