Christian commercialism

Went into Perfect Peace (a Christian bookstore) on Monday and felt a little uncomfortable. Why? With me being a Christian most of my life, why should I of all people feel uncomfortable in a Christian bookstore?

After seeing the life-sized cutout of Michael W. Smith for his new album, I realized it was the commercialism. That fake "buy this and you will be a better Christian" type of feeling. I know they need to advertise, but I don't have to like it.
