This week’s bad church sign reads:
AVERAGE TEMP HERE 95
AVERAGE TEMP IN HELL 200
As summer approaches, more and more church signs will use the rising temperatures to scare you into heaven. Let me make clear: fear of hell does not permit you a seat in heaven. Salvation is more involved than that.
Regardless of the theological implications, 200 degrees?! How can you even be sure of that? Did Satan give you the latest thermostat reading?
Ah, the Bible Belt.
