>Umm, Not a Strong Selling Point….

April 28, 2010

I’ve driven by this sign for awhile now and it never ceases to amaze me at how some denominations of Christianity think that bringing someone to a belief and a faith in Christ is best done by scaring the shit out of them and telling them that if they don’t comply, they’re going to fry.

It’s not the way to convince folks that Jesus loves them, is what I’m saying. In fact, it rather smacks of an abuser who threatens all hell breaking loose if you don’t do his bidding and right the frak now.

Now, certainly people are free to see their creator of the universe as a really pissy old man who has nothing better to do than fry nonbelievers, rather like some kids do with a magnifying glass, a sunny day, and an endless supply of ants.

I, for one, if I were going to believe, and if I were trying to sell a faith, would remind people that you get more flies with honey, and a loving God whose intent is to help mankind get through all the bad shit,  well, that might bring in more customers, you know?

Now, the really funny way to have concluded that sign would not have been with the church’s name and address, but with removing the “at” and writing…

When you kick the bucket….or not.

    >I have long tried to reconcile the life and teachings of the errant Rabbi Jesus with the Catholic Church, the Jehovah's Witnesses, the Mormons and the rest of them.We have Mormon girls in Cambridge doing their service now. Definitely an improvement on the boys, but alas still along way from being Hookers for Jesus.Mind you, that homespun, frumpy nerdishness combined with a sudden frenzied loss of control could be quite something to experi… Umm… Sorry, bit OT. I was just leaving anyway…
