Hey, at least their sign's message usually has a sense of humor!

It looks like the same size print they've always used.

Not to worry Skippy. Soon this type of freedom of speech along with talk radio will be outlawed.

Nothing new there. Baptists have been doing this for years.

It's the "do not do" denomination.

But most do......ha ha!

At least their is a group out there that cares for some one elses eternal future whether they are Baptist or not. You will go some where when you die. And usually their signs make you think! And no I don't go to this church.

There's nothing more funner than going to Wal-Mart with a Baptist on Sunday to buy more wine because y'all done drank it all at lunch time.

"Hell, he was more nervouser than a Baptist buying wine at the Deeeecatur Wal-Mart on a Sunday afternoon!"

Really? They really think there's such thing as heaven and hell? That's a very child-like view- don't you think?

Yeah, you'll go SOMEWHERE when you die. Like decompose and get back into the carbon cycle as fertilizer.
If it somehow makes you feel better in the meantime to have a bunch of superstitious hocus-pocus rule your life, go ahead. But you ought to quit wasting a bunch of resources doing it. That part is dumb whether there turns out to be a god or not.

After you die, you go to the same place you were before you were born.

Here's a new idea:

If all the countries in the world confiscated all the assets of all organized religion and applied them to educating and employing everyone worldwide while permanently banning all religion from the planet, it would almost be like an act of God.

That could sure solve a lot of problems.

Pretty good thinking 5:38 (assuming it is serious).....

..only one problem. If a person gets a diagnosis of a terminal illness, what kind of education is needed in that instance?

....an education in the belief of a "Higher Power"?

Just asking.

Man, are they insinuating that smokers can't go to heaven? I mean, yeah, it's a bad habit and all that but what if you're nice to snails and ferrets and stuff, wouldn't it kind of balance out? I mean, it just doesn't seem fair to ban me from paradise cause I smoke, does it? I don't even smoke all that much, but some.

And what if you decided to quit smoking and then about an hour and a half later you got run over by a truck? Is that like technically dying as a non-smoker even though you didn't really get time to not smoke cause of the truck and all? Do you still get to go to the baptist heaven or can you just sort of be around lookin' in the windows and lookin' for food in dumpsters?

I noticed in the Mess over the weekend the many church advertisements. 35 is my count. For the first time I took notice of the names of these churches. Interesting variety. I'm not sure what 'methodist' means. Does the 'baptist' name mean the church is named after John the Baptist? I know Lutheran is named after Martin Luther. There's a St. Mark Anglican. A few 'cowboy' churches. Would they accept a punk rocker there? Only 4 of those advertised have the name of Christ in their name. If all of these churches advertising claim to be the 'church of christ', why all these different names? Most of them are named after men, mixed with other odd names. Just a boring observation.

11:01 - it really is ridiculous how many churches we have in Wise County.

When Grace Fellowship puts in a golf course and swimming pool, I'm joining them.

Luv that consumer religion!

Don't you hate those theologically correct signs? There appears to be a lot of Luke chapter 16 in that one. It is nice to know that someone still stands for something.

Does anyone know if Jesus ever told any Jokes or was he always serious?

11:16 and others - we don't know about his humor. Jesus never wrote a single word (he may have been illiterate). Those gospel writers who relate the words and stories of Jesus - never met the man. They wrote their accounts of Jesus some 60 to 120 years after Jesus died (partly accounts for why they so often disagree). And those who claim the Bible is the "word of God" also have a little problem with textual citation. God hadn't invented recording devices when he "spoke" his directives.

I'm just sayin'...

What the 2:48 comment is sayin' is that if you do not know that Jesus was the Son of God and the Creator of John Chapter 1, you would not know if He was litterate. If you do know that He was the Creator then you probably know that He knows all languages. Also, if the Bible is not inspired (II Timothy 6:13) of God then we really have no basis to even guess about religion or theology. So basically - Smoking or Non-Smoking?

3:31 - Was John Chapt 1 written a century after Jesus' death? Did John do any interviews with Jesus or anyone who knew him? Did John observe Jesus after his crucifixion? If not, from whom did he obtain his information?

Anonymous said...

So correct me if I'm wrong, But didn't all this crucifying and resurrecting go on over there in Palestineland? And if so, well you know how those guys are about their tunnels. That would explain a lot about that disappearing body business

What if you died, just now. Wouldn't you want to believe that there is a God and find out there isn't one, than to die and find out there is one.
As one Christian to another, it should not matter what your Church affiliation is, only that you believe that Jesus died for your sins.
It is not that difficult, He made the plan pretty simple don't you think.

Why would God play a silly game like if you don't believe in me you won't get into Heaven and if you do you will?

If his love is truly unconditional it would appear that there are conditions attached in order to get to be with him.

OK 9:22...........

Let's see if I got this right?

If only I BELIEVE that Jesus died for my sins, then it doesn't matter why I believe that. Because it was brainwashed into me from birth? Or because I was too stupid/lazy/indifferent to ask questions and analyze intelligent data? Or even because I was pressured into taking that belief by an incorrect but persuasive majority in a land of fools? Just as long as I believe that, right?

So how do you figure I get priority in heaven when I lie, cheat,steal, violate and murder my way through life all the while believing in Jesus and that I am but a poor sinner? My neighbor here is not Christian, spends a lot of time thinking logically about the state of humanity, doing the right thing for people always, certainly doing no intentional harm, yet because he could never wrap his mind around the "believe in Jesus edict" from a couple thousand years ago will be denied entrance to our paradise?

Oh come on. Most of us want to go to Hawkins when we die.

They desperately need the money!

If you are a Christian then you know, if you read your Bible, when you admit that you are a sinner, repent of your sins, and you let Jesus into your heart,you are washed clean by the blood of the lamb and then you become a new creature. You are to lead a more Christ like life. In other words, do not repeat the same sins over and over again. You are to learn from your mistakes and grow as a Christian.
It takes a life time and a daily walk with Jesus to be able to be more like Him. He was sent here to be our example and the Bible is our Manual.
It doesn't mean you are to flaunt that you are a Christian or look down your nose at those who may not be in the right circles, go to the right Church, wear the right clothes, or those that do not have a lot of money. We are all children of God.
Jesus was a humble man and led a humble and sinless life.
We are not capable of living a sinless life, thus the plan that God created to be able bridge the gap between God and man through the blood of His Son, Jesus.
You can call me brain washed or stupid, but to me those are words from a confused and rebellious child of God.
I pray that you will find Him soon, before it is too late.

We are not all children of God. In John 8:44 it says "Ye are of your father the devil." We are only chilren of God if we choose to be and accept Jesus as our savior.
