Church Sign - September 28th 2009, 11:51 PM

I was looking through bumper sticker on facebook and I came across this photo.



It really took me by surprise so I wanted to see your opinions. Thanks for responding


Compromise is not a sign of weakness. It is the strength to withstand caving to an ultimatum.

That is an absolutely awful sign and I really hope that it isn't real. Sometimes people photoshop these kinds of messages, so there may be a chance that this isn't a real sign.

If it is, then that is very disappointing and frightening. It took me by surprise too.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.

Some churches try to make a point using pop culture... Its not that suprising. It'll probably be an evangelical church, if its real. Though, kissing a girl is not Biblically prohibited.

Eh, probably photoshopped, but then again, probably not. I've seen worse on church signs...

For instance, there's one that reads "Come in and let me tell you why God hates you!" Some are funny, some are disturbing, and some just give Christianity a bad name...

Walla, my own creation.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Not sure if it's genuine or if someone had some photoshop fun.

I thought that was really funny :P But maybe not good for a church to spread that message so bluntly. Then again I'm biased because my church is REALLY laid back and they basically don't say things like that. Haha.

Actually I remember reading a news article about a sign saying that, so it may be true. Someone posted it on here awhile ago. Also, Ben, yours was epic. I think I may have to make one myself. I'll post it if I get around to it.

Honestly, that's pretty hilarious. More churches should be like that.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

I think we had a thread about this sign a few months ago, accompanied with a news article.
