Church Signs...

Sometimes I shake my head and sometimes I just chuckle when I pass church signs. I cannot for the life of me figure out what the purpose is to signs like:

"Let the Jewish Carpenter Build Your Dream Home"

Is is supposed to make me want to visit that church? Become a Christian? Admire the writer? Sometimes Bob and I just look at each other and laugh because they are so ridiculous. I mean,

"God answers knee-mail."

How does that help build the Christian faith?
But, we saw the head-shaker of all head-shakers on a recent trip we took. The sign actually said, and I wrote it down so I would get it right,

"Would you rather suffer in this life or the next?"

I am not kidding.
They actually posted that! Makes you want to become a Christian doesn't it? It makes me think that if I was not a Christian I would think all Christians were a bit off, you know?

I would love to hear from you. What are your favorite or least favorite or the most shocking church signs you have seen? What do you think about them? Good for Christendom? Or kind of the butt of Christian jokes?


  1. One of my friends who reads this blog, but doesn't like to post told me that they saw a church sign that said, "The Perfect Church."


  2. Hi there,

    I just listened to your husband's interview on The Byte Show which led me to look around on the site and then over here.

    A recent church sign I saw here was:

    "Accept the Bread of Life or become toast"

  3. Wow, Ma. I never saw that one. It really does make you wonder what they were thinking, doesn't it?
