Questionable church signs #1

An Adelaide church sign recently caught my attention:

I’ve omitted the border because I’m not interested in pointing to a particular congregation.

While cute, what struck me about the words is that it illustrates how we are able to create gods in our own image.

Is it really such a leap to go from this to considering the Ten Commandments or the golden rule as the possible product of a human community rather than divine inspiration?

Wouldn’t it be more effective just to point people to Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot on YouTube?

    nobody really cares about the pale blue dot.

    i think its cool. look around, who do you think cares? how many people do you think are that thoughtful? it was a moving message in its time– always will be for some people. also i always liked that billboard. “love thy neighbor is the whole of the law, the rest is commentary.”
