UPDATE: This poorly written post was edited on Wednesday for your reading pleasure.
My wife and I really enjoy watching “King of the Hill” every weeknight. But the ads on late-night Fox TV sometimes are horrible.
Some of the worst ads are the Sluts on Call phone service ad and the Dudes Cruising for Dudes phone service ad. I have opinions on those, but my opinions would be obvious and, in Canada, illegal.
Instead, I’ll mention the advertising by Rally’s Hamburgers. Here are the lyrics of their more-hip-than-thou theme song:
You don’t do nothin’ you don’t wanna do
Ain’t nothin’ phony about you
Keepin’ it real, you do what you feel
You gotta eat, you gotta eat Rally’s
At first, Mary and I were merely appalled at the corporate strategy of using cool self-centeredness to sell fast food.
But then we began thinking. And in an opposite and strange way, the theme song could be a Christian rallying cry.
As we who follow Christ continue in His way and His words, we are more and more transformed into desiring good. And finally, when we reach that golden shore and are utterly remade in His image, our desire to taste sin will be vanquished. Then we truly will do nothin’ we don’t wanna do — because we will have no sin, we will want to do only those things that will bring glory to Christ.
But we can rest easy knowing the wedding feast will feature something better than hamburgers.
