    I have two paperback books of them. One is called Marque Messages , but I forget the other. Haven't got to use them yet...the church I am a member of doesn't have a sign that has a marque! Oh, well...I guess I am ready when we do get one.

    In Christ,

    Not to offend anyone here, but I find such marque signs to be nothing more than trite and annoying.

    What purpose do they serve? All the non-christians I know just think they are immeasurably stupid, and even as a christian, I find it hard not to agree with them. It seems to me they do more to annoy the general public than to evangelize them.

    But they are your marquees, do what you want with them. [​IMG]

    Brothers, Never, Please never stop using signs, I was saved that very way, After driving back and forth to work and reading those signs for over a year, that is what the Holy Spirit finally used to bring me into church. Stupid or not you never know who might read them.

    Well, if that is the case, I stand corrected. [​IMG]

    I think I will still find them annoying, but I'll manage.

    I know one pastor who says "They can't think of a verse of scripture to put up?"

    On the other hand, there's a RCC parish on US 1 through the NE part of Philly that has one! I always look as I drive by to see what they came up with. I think they must have one of those books.

    When my daddy would get transferred to another Army-base, I'd always look forward to reading those "Burma-Shave" signs. [​IMG]

    All over our parish(county), there are churches with signs which tell a lot of the spiritual condition inside. Some say "frivolous" things & there are those that are blank! Do they have nothing to say? :confused:

    Saw one that said "Go Ahead, Drive On By and Go to Hell".

    I was driving by (not going to hell) and offended. It was Church of Christ and I remember that and would not go to that church if my life depended on it.

    Like nobody thought through what people would think when they saw the sign???

    There's a church near me that used to be a theater. They still have the marquee outside. They change their sign whenever a new movie comes out. The most recent ones are:

    Jesus Christ: Lord of the Kings
    Revelation: Return of the King
    Don't worry about having to Die Another Day
    The Lord is Master and Commander
    God is my General

    I enjoy those signs if they are just a little bit clever or an interesting play on words. Sometimes it is the only sermon some people get all week.

    Dr. Bob, I agree that that one was bad.

    It is hard to rock the boat when you are pulling on the oars.

    Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes.

    No God, no peace. Know God, Know peace.

    If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?

    Forbidden fruit makes for a bad jam.

    The next time you think you are perfect, try walking on water.

    Three nails plus one cross equals forgiven.

    Where will you spend eternity: smoking, or non-smoking?

    There will be no parties in hell, just one giant barbeque, and you don't want to be invited.

    Jesus died for you. Will you live for him?

    Just a few of my favorites.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    Here's one I saw: "2 choices on the shelf-pleasing God or pleasing self."

    Here's one from the Christmas-spend-all: "If you drop while you shop, you'll wish you kept Christ in Christmas."

    Also: "Sign broken - message inside." :rolleyes:

    When I was a young man traveling through the South by train, I saw a sign on a black church that still hangs in my memory:
    THIRD BASE CHURCH--STOP HERE BEFORE YOU GO HOME. ;)

    CH CH What's missing?


    Jesus is for life, not just for Christmas.

    When the devil reminds you of your past, remind him of his future.

    ETERNITY: your choice, smoking or non-smoking

    This is one of my favorites:

    IF YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR A SIGN FROM GOD TO COME TO CHURCH, THIS IS IT!

    A heart in tune with God cannot help but sind His praise.
