We don’t very often have good things to say about churches here, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. And for once, we’ve got a church that, as the San Antonio Express-News reports, finally gets it right.
Call it the battle of the billboards.
In Lexington, a church has decided to lease billboard space to respond to a recent message from an atheists’ group.
Pastor Jared Henry of Lafayette Church of the Nazarene told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/PUE72k) that the church has gotten “almost exclusively positive feedback” after posting its message, which says: “We believe in God. Join the right club. John 3:16.”
It came on the heels of a billboard message in September and October that said: “Don’t believe in God? Join the club.”
No death threats? No vandalism? Wow.
