“Bono said that the only people who still pay for music are “teenage girls and very, very honest people.” [usatoday.com, 3/11/09; Rolling Stone, 3/19/09]

I am constantly surprised by Christians who know right from wrong but their desire to have something for nothing compels them to do wrong. Copying DVD’s from Netflix and illegal downloads seem to be common among us. What is the motivation to risk our testimony at the expense of saving $20? What does that say about our walk with Jesus? It would appear that owning the new U2 disk is more important than walking blamelessly with Christ. Wouldn’t it have been great if Bono had said, ” people who still pay for music are teenage girls and Christians.”

How sad it is that he didn’t.
