This week’s bad church sign states:
“There’s no A/C in Hell!
First off, I believe hell’s description is a tad bit worse than simply the absence of controlled air. If that is the worst description you can think of, you really don’t understand it.
But by using an exclamation point, why are the deciding to yell at us? Then…”either.” Does this mean that the church is out of air? Does this town not have any air conditioners? If so, then hell is the exact same living conditions as the city they live in since eternal suffering equals being uncomfortably hot.
Plus, is this chiding to nonbelievers going to result in them coming to Christ?
We need to show this world that we are deeply concerned about their spiritual conditions.
