The mess we're in

"Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness, and his upper rooms by injustice; who makes his neighbors work for nothing, and does not give them their wages; who says, "I will build myself a spacious house with large upper rooms," and who cuts out windows for it, paneling it with cedar, and painting it with vermilion. Are you a king because you compete in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him. He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well. Is not this to know me? says the Lord."

- Jeremiah 22:13-16

Yeah, that's in the Bible, THE Bible. Yeah. Conspicuous consumption, giant McMansions and huge SUV's. Not necessarily WWJD when you think about it.
