Jesus Needs New PR

Jesus Needs New PR


A big ole slice of America’s ‘Jesus’! (crazy. funny. sad.)

First, for all you literary peeps out there, here’s the perfect example of an “eye rhyme.” You know, two words that LOOK like they should rhyme, but don’t.

Next, we see a sign offering us another way to say “Jesus Love You!” and a guy wearing an interesting Jesus t-shirt!

When I found the following picture, I thought it’s headline was funny: Warning Jesus Crossing

A humorous Facebook fail…

The next picture’s title was this: Tea Party Jesus

Somebody thought it would be funny to create “Gymnastics Jesus”…

And there’s this image…

Take the cigarette out of this next picture, and I think you get Catalyst Convention Jesus!

One church gets “creative” when deciding what to name its on-campus coffee shop…

And yet another balloon Jesus…

Wow, the Bank of America ad is too much!! I find myself speechless on that one, but the FB fail is hilarious. Where do you find this stuff?

A couple of these are funny, the others make the church look flippin’ weird – other worldly. Helps you understand why people are busting the doors down to get in – not. “Pray for all those who are sick in the bulletin” stuff. :)Thanks

the “Jesus Christ Is Lord, Not a Swear Word” Truck Stop and Travel Center” is located in my home city of Amarillo, TX. PTL.

http://www.jesuschristislordtravelcenter.com/

the trucks are EVERYWHERE, and they even sell bumper stickers,…hundreds of them apparently because they are on plenty of vehicles down here.

God bless the bible belt.

Please tell me that the “Son Bucks” is not a real picture from a real church. Please.

      Yes, “Son Bucks” coffee shop is real and in a church located in New Milford, CT. My family went to Christmas Eve services there once (and ONLY once) and got the “treat” of having the senior pastor read a children’s storybook in a rocking chair to all the children gathered around him on the “stage”–but the best Christmas Eve service surprise EVERRRRR came when a giant furry creature (picture horrifying life-sized muppet) came out to greet the kids. The kids seemed to know him, so he evidently has been at other services as well! Then–dramatic pause—it SNOWED on the stage!! Really! Fake snow came down on the senior pastor right in the middle of the Christmas Eve service! Thank goodness we were able to quickly get some hot chocolate at the SonBucks coffee shop–God is so good, isn’t He?!?!! And you’ll be happy to know this church also has a K-12 school!

Regarding “SonBucks” coffee shop. It absolutely infuriates me when Christians co-opt marketing campaigns from the secular PR industry and actually have the temerity to claim it as “creative.” I don’t need my coffee from “SonBucks” I don’t need to wear a shirt that says “got Jesus?”get a tatoo in the shape of the Superman logo but instead of an “S” it has “JC” in the middle… you get the idea.

Once upon a time, Christians defined art, now all we do is copy it in the hope that unsaved people will think we are cool too.

It makes me mad…

Funny you should mention the “Jesus is Lord” gas station. I was driving through Amarillo en route to Colorado this past weekend. I nearly died when I saw it. I tried to get a picture, but you know how well that goes with a Blackberry. Oh well. I’m glad somebody has spread the word of this “landmark.”

Pat Robertson blasts SNL over Jesus, Tebow skit!
Hmm. SNL has poked fun with Jesus before… Chances are, Pat wouldn’t have said anything about this skit had it not been poking fun at Tebow… SNL has used “Jesus” in skits many many times. There seems to be a double standard among some Christians when the religious sati
