Christianese: The latest church sign

As I mentioned on a previous blog entry, there's a church on my commute that always puts up church signs that they think are effective in reaching the secular community, but are actually super-douchey.

This week's sign:
"ETERNITY IS A LONG TIME TO BE WRONG"

The message they were intending to send:
"In case God really is real and the Bible is true, and you don't believe in him, that means you will not go to heaven. Hell is a horrible place. We don't want you to go there. Consider checking into Christianity so you can save yourself from hell. We care about you."

The message they're actually sending:
YOUR BELIEFS ARE WRONG
YOU'RE AN IDIOT
YOU'RE GOING TO BURN IN HELL FOREVER

  1. Yeah, that's pretty lame. They really didn't think it through very well before posting it. Church sighs should be encouraging not the other way around.
