Oh No! Not Another One!

Yes, another lousy church sign. I know, I know, I need to post on something else, but drives to Lynchburg just give me too much church sign fodder.
If you can't stand the heat,

Huh? What?

That's OK. I don't get it either.

Tony, do you think these signs are intended to actually invite people inside or more to reassure those who already go and stick a thumb in the eye of those who don't?

What do you suppose that means exactly???

You have to wonder about the content of the sermons inside the building when you see those "mini-sermons" on the sign outside.

Sorry about my tardiness in responding.


I do think some signs are set up that way and are premeditated to communicate just that message; a "church-goers are better than non-church-goers" mentality. Others I think are out of pure ignorance or just an attempt to be "cute" when they come off as simply stupid. Too often correctness gets sacrificed for cuteness and I don't necessarily mean biblically correct, but a correctly welcoming marquee.


I would suppose it is a cheap take-off of "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" with some kind of "get out of hell free card." I really don't know what it is supposed to mean.

Sad, huh?


Yeah--I'm sure the creativity and sensitivity is just as dull on the inside as on the outside!
