Heh ran across this song by ole Ray Stevens.... what are you thoughts?

The Situation described in the song is the exact problem i see in modern Christianity,
it is wise to point out the two mentions in the bible on elaborate jewelry being pointed out as generally not a good idea:
“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array…” (1 Tim 2:9)
“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel… (1 Pet 3:3)
Large amounts of christians ignore these to verses completely and instead justify it by other parts in the bible that mention jewelry but really fail completely at a good justification.
So no Jesus would not wear a Rolex.
As far as Tv Ministry again probably not, though it is possible someone else might broadcast him speaking. Alot of his ministry consisted of personal interactions between people and himself. he did fill up theaters but rather more odd ball areas like small hills by lakes, public squares, peoples homes. He preferred that personal level. He was more revolutionary than with the then current religious leaders of his day. so again no
