Posted on 12/15/2011 3:21:04 PM PST by NYer
A church in New Zealand has put up a billboard showing the Virgin Mary looking worriedly at a pregnancy test.
This is brought to you by the same jerks that brought you this billboard last year.
This church has fallen into the same trap that so many fall into. There's no point to these billboards other than "look at me!" This isn't theology. It's not even evangelizing. It's advertising. It's we're the funny hep church. We're cool. They're just moron publicity seekers.
I wouldn’t call that a church
Outrageous, have they no shame, no moral decency?
How about a billboard near a mosque depicting Mohammad with a NAMBLA t shirt...
Well, with a sense of humor that sharply irreverent these chaps may one day get to know Brutus, Cassius, and Judas very well.
I hope it gets struck by lightning and
burns to the ground.
The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us.
Oh that’s just wrong
I can see a “Church” of Satan putting this out. Sick.
My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden,
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm:
He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted those of low degree.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich He has sent empty away.
He has helped His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy;
As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to His posterity forever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus
in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem
Ecce enim ex hoc beátam
me dicent omnes generatiónes,
quia fecit mihi magna,
qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericórdia eius in progénies
et progénies timéntibus eum.
Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo,
dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui;
depósuit poténtes de sede
et exaltávit húmiles.
Esuriéntes implévit bonis
et dívites dimísit inánes.
Suscépit Ísrael púerum suum,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,
Ábraham et sémini eius in sæcula.
Glória Patri et Fílio
et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio,
et nunc et semper,
et in sæcula sæculórum.
She became the Mother of God, in which work so many and such great good things are bestowed on her as pass man’s understanding. For on this there follows all honor, all blessedness, and her unique place in the whole of mankind, among which she has no equal, namely, that she had a child by the Father in heaven, and such a Child . . . Hence men have crowded all her glory into a single word, calling her the Mother of God . . . None can say of her nor announce to her greater things, even though he had as many tongues as the earth possesses flowers and blades of grass: the sky, stars; and the sea, grains of sand. It needs to be pondered in the heart what it means to be the Mother of God.
(Commentary on the Magnificat, 1521; in Luther’s Works, Pelikan et al, vol. 21, 326)
ROFL and true, but how many people do you think will get that slam?
Once again, any and all things CHRISTIAN get attack. Lord have MERCY on us and on the WORLD!
Try doing this with the Muslims and see how much they can get away with it!
"Eye to the world" is about right ... the way a slave keeps an eye on his master.
Given the disinterest of so many today in our own culture and history it would seem not many will. We live in an age when people think that there are few if any consequences to our deeds.
Sadly, all too true.
