We Laugh, But . . .

Church signs have been used ever since the invention of moveable type to display all sorts of messages: humorous and serious, challenging and trivial.

Here’s one that’s not set in moveable letters, possibly because the church doesn’t think it will ever need to change it.

My particular favourites on the list of people who love the devil are “Loud Mouth Women” and “Government Recipients.”

Incorrect use of apostrophes aside, My mind boggles at the mentality behind such a sign. Rather than point to a God who hates, churches need–more now than ever before–to point to a God who loves . . . and who loves everyone in spite of the labels they wear or the hangups they have.¬†Without a doubt, if our God can extend his mercy to St Paul, who called himself ‘the foremost of all sinners,’ then he surely can have pity on us “Sport’s Nut’s”! (Insert grinning face here. . . .)
