Enough Already

OK I know that I am not the first person to bring up this topic but something has to be done.

We must ban together and put an end to cheesy church message boards. NOW!!!!

I drive past a "small country church" on my way to work everyday and everyday I thing "Is there really one person who was far from God and drove past one of these signs, (for example, "The man who gets on his knees before God, can stand up to anything" or a personal favorite during the summer "You Think This Is Hot!!" and many many more.) and think that sign is right I will go to that church." To my knowledge I don't think this has ever happened.

The only purpose these signs serve is for the people who are already members of the church to feel they have "creatively" spread some biblical wisdom to the rest of us.

So I am starting a movement, Help Followers of the way of God not be Cheddar anymore.
I need a better name I know, but you get the point.

If we are going to reach a planet with the Love of God and introduce them to the life changing power of Jesus, it is not going to happen with plastic letters arranged in sudo-clever phrase in the parking lot of churches. As much as most church goers don't want to admit it we as the people of God MUST and dare I say again MUST forge relationships with the people in our lives who do not know God. PERIOD.

And if you don't know anyone that is far from God than you need new friends.

Someone once said "the healthy don't need a doctor"

I like some of the more original ones. Evangelism isn't the job of signs. It's like the Chris Rice "Cartoon" song, "...cartoons weren't made for that, it's our job..."
