Questions from answers

No, this isn’t a post about Jeopardy. Have you ever seen a billboard that just didn’t make sense? Have you ever seen one of those billboards that came from a Christian organisation? Well, here’s one. So now you can answer “yes” to both those questions… It makes no sense to me at all – perhaps you can explain it to me.

Answers in Genesis even made this into a video advert on YouTube. I think they’re suggesting that if you’re not a Christian you’re likely to shoot people because you don’t really care about them – or that people who don’t believe in God are more likely to shoot you because they don’t care about you.

It’s just odd and pretty screwy. Though I’d expect that from these guys. They’re Christianity’s Richard Dawkins.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. I don’t think they’re trying to say what you suggested… but I’m not sure what they WERE trying to say.

    1. I’m pretty sure that it is. At least it’s making a link between morality and sanctity of life – and God.

  2. Yes I saw the link between God & sanctity of life… but I’m not convinced they were saying ‘if you don’t believe in God you’re more likely to kill people’. Not sure WHAT they were saying. Maybe they were just pointing out if anyone’s going to love you, it’ll be God? I don’t know.

    In today’s day and age I actually think those responsible for the most deaths have done it BECAUSE they believe in some form of God.
