Churches put faith in advertising

September 7, 2009

The alleged supreme creator of the universe, who is said to have revealed himself through nature so that people are without excuse, needs a little help getting the word out.

“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:18-21

Why would this Guy need an advertising agency to pitch his wares? As a person that makes his living in advertising and marketing, I can't help but think that landing the God account is pretty impressive. I wonder what kind of budget he has to work with.

Billboards across the state, often located outside churches, will use colourful photos with captions thanking Jesus for everyday elements of life.

An image of someone feeding seagulls says “Thanks for hot chips. Amen”, while another shows a little girl on a beach with the caption “Hey, thanks for the beach, Jesus”.

Another shows a parrot with the caption: “Thank you, Jesus, for birds that look like they’re wearing pants.”

Weren’t beaches and birds around before Jesus? I think that is false advertising!

I think they’re on to something. Thanks for the health insurance, Jesus.

Or as in North Fort Myers there are blastocysts on billboards pleading…please don’t kill me mommy.
I guess cells in the voicebox duplicate first….
“fetuses” on billboards are all the rage down here..
that and on keychains, bumperstickers…soon they’ll have the vote…red or blue who knows?...the pro-cell
contingent lives mighty close to Ave Maria University….which sits next to a Seminole Casino. ha. Ave Maria set up by the Dominoe’s Pizza founder.
Do YOU see Jesus in the CHEESE too?

The soft start to the Sydney leg of the campaign, which is based on the slogan “Jesus. All About Life, was prompted by research that showed Sydneysiders were cynical, hardbitten and hard soil for conversion.The social research agency McCrindle found Sydney residents thought denominational Christian churches were a damaged brand - exclusive, inaccessible and divisive. It also found that Jesus was the best, most unifying and positive figure for a six-week campaign designed to stir debate about God.Fewer than 12 per cent of Sydneysiders were deemed to be warm to an invitation to re-engage with churches, and nearly half of all parents registered antagonism to the faith and said they would not give their children an understanding of Christianity.
