Where would we be without church signs?

February 24, 2007

Here are a couple more classics from those geniuses that think you can billboard faith. The first comes from the Springwood Presbyterian Church in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

Would you worship Jesus if he scored 10,000 test runs?

Certainly not. He’d probably be playing for Nazareth. And then he’d no doubt turn it into a parable or something. And are we talking career runs here or 10,000 in a single test? That would make a difference.

Underneath it say “at the name of Jesus every knee should bow”. Just the knee? 10,000 runs in a single test and I imagine every jaw would drop way beyond the knee.

Whenever someone sends me a good church sign like the one above I’m encouraged to go out and check our old mates at the Sydney Central Baptist Church. Here’s their latest effort:

Jesus Loves Osama

Jesus and Osama, sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

We should show this one to George W Bush and watch his little evangelical brain explode. “But Jesus is our Lord and Osama is a terr’ist! Jesus is our Lord. Osama is a terr’ist. Jesus loves terr’ists! Aarrghhh!” *BOOM*

I can dream, can’t I?

Underneath it reads, Jesus said, “love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you”. Isn’t that what got us into all this trouble in the first place?
