There comes a time when driving home from work during that evening, in bumper-to-bumper traffic that a Church sign catches your eye. Normally, you just keep traveling at 65 m.p.h (“Miles Per Hour” – for you non-Americans) in that 45 m.p.h zone, but since traffic has slowed you down to 25, you take the time to read the eternal words of wisdom from that Church sign.
Once you read it, a few judgmental thoughts might come to mind. One, you wonder if it took them a long time to come up with that clever, analogous poem. A different thought could be that they would have been better off stealing that clever poem from the other Church down the road. Or the other thought might be something completely random; because the bible verse on the billboard about ‘living bread’ made you wonder about what you are going to have for dinner tonight.
So what’s the point here? I don’t know either, but i want to cover 4 different types of church signs that you’ll see about giving money and tithing.
I. The Get Rich Quick Billboard
This is the one that will make you think that tithing and coming to church is like joining a pyramid scheme that promises their secrets will get you rich (. . . hmmm, i wonder if that could be the theme for a new blog post? )
II. The Political Bumper Sticker
Mama said, no religion and politics at the dinner table, so that gives you the liberty to turn your car into a political and religious motorized billboard. I gotta say this is kind of my favorite. At least i think it’s the funniest. Yes, i vote republican, and no i wouldn’t dare put a bumper sticker on my car or a yard sign in front of my house. Although i am proud that i vote conservative, i do not like to instigate anyone to vandalize my property.
III. The Hostile Church Sign
Here’s a few things i’m wondering:
– I wonder if that kind of seems like a threat?
-I wonder if their ushers pack any firearms under their suits?
– I wonder if it’s God that needs the cash or if it’s Earl R. Stinson?
– I wonder if he takes credit card?
IV. The Arrogant Church Sign
This is the sign that wants to better than the other Christians who came up with the bumper sticker that said, “honk if you love Jesus”
. . . Anybody know of any other good Church signs? . . .
