Techno-Tuesday: The Church Sign
Have you guys heard this story from Jonesville, SC?
A pastor put up on his church sign: ”Obama, Osama, hmm, are they brothers?” When interviewed the pastor said it was not meant to be political, but then he said, ”It’s simply to cause people to realize and to see what possibly could happen if we were to get someone in there that does not believe in Jesus Christ.” I am not going to debate Obama’s beliefs, but I am frustrated with how Christians are perceived because of acts like this. Obviously, this guy is not the first to abuse the church sign and won’t be the last. Is the website the church sign of the 21st century? How can we faithfully steward the church’s communication or public relations to those not in the church?
