See Isaiah 55 v 10 – 11

‘So shall My word be that goes forth from my mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.’

With such a wonderful promise from God’s word why do so many churches fail to display the Word of God?  In its place we have man’s clever sayings. I passed a church today which had on the board,

‘CH–CH’ What is missing?

‘HONK if you love Jesus.’

‘God is not ex-directory – TRY CALLING.’

So clever, but can we expect anything to come from this? Can you think of other man made messages you have seen?  I guarantee they are all ‘user friendly’, without any challenge about sin or repentance!

The contemporary church has lost confidence in the Word of God.

It is always best to stand near the A Frame or weigh down to prevent being blown over or causing harm.

I am always amazed at the number of people I see looking at the Text boards.



What message does this church give to passer’s by?


Do people ever take any notice of this kind of message?
