Every once in a while, when I feel tough enough, I peruse the other side of the blogosphere, the atheists. I do not do it to find someone to argue with, I don’t feel you can argue someone to the Lord, I do it to hear their arguments, and see what they think of us. Mostly it seems, they think we are idiots and sometimes I think they are right. Not because of our faith, but because of the witness some of our little families show to the world.
Look at the young fellow in the picture above. Is that the Gospel? Is that the Good News of Jesus Christ? Do you see hope for redemption on his sign. I was once many of the things listed on his ‘go to hell’ placard, and at times can slip back towards a few of them, yet I am not in danger of God’s Judgement. That is the Good News.
This will pack them in. Everyone is welcome to everlasting punishment. Great.
This one ticks me off! Sure God was the one who said water would not be compressible, but He never said to build hotels on the sand. Actually I remember something about the solid rock. Anyway, If I just lost a loved one to AIDS I would not go here for comfort. Aids is spread primarily through behaviors God does not approve of. Look at the spread of heterosexual AIDS in Africa, adultery kills. I have not heard of God starting a war in the last few thousand years. I thought dictators and politicians start wars. Don’t blame God for man’s sins. What sort of ego do you need to put words in God’s mouth? I have a fear factor that just would not allow me to do that.
Now there’s a reason to come to the Lord.
I have nothing to say on these two that does not speak for itself. It is not just church signs.
I don’t know what they are protesting on the top picture, but whatever it is they are really advertising for it. The guy on the bottom gets credit for using the word salvation, but salvation is not a right, AIDS is a plague not a right, and Hell is not mentioned as a right in Romans. There is a really bad attitude showing here. This is not “Come let us reason together.”
Update… This is a spoof picture, but they did such a good job, people took it as real! See Chris’s comment below. Sorry Mark O. First of all, maam, where in scripture do you see the Lord crying over dance. And you sir, I have been married 30 years, I like to dance with my wife, and I can testify with truth that dancing does not lead to sex. Not always, and in my humble opinion, not often enough. Using the technology hidden in the basement of stately Willohroots manner I was able to enlarge the book the man is holding.
This could explain a lot.
You put this on a billboard? Really? I read about the challenge, and my wife and I actually participated in ‘The One Day Challenge’ [ hey we are old and busy] I hear what you are saying, but people judge you by your signs! This is ridiculous! You want to challenge the world, try this, challenge them to go without sex for 30 days to discipline the body and honor God. Might not bring in as many people, you think?
If no one else has noticed, 50% of America is Democrat. Win an election, lose some souls. Fair trade? Somehow I doubt it.
Ah the bumper sticker crowd! Don’t you love it when they cut you off, or park in three spaces? I believe I believe the way this person believes but I bet I get to talk to more people.
Well for all that , these signs are not all that bad, I would much rather live in a country where I see these things listed above,,,,,,,,, not the one below.
