Free-thinking Slaves

It’s funny… when I first came across this pic, I thought that it might be a joke… Apparently not. The Mills Road Baptist Church is located in Houston, TX. Here’s a little excerpt from their website:

“Christ Alone (Sola Christus) is the one mediator between God and man. He is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Him. There is salvation in no other name but His. To Him every knee will eventually bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. The entirety of His sinless life and work, His suffering on the cross, burial and resurrection from the dead, and ascension into heaven constitute the gospel (good news). (Mark 1:1) Grace Alone (Sola Gratia) is the operational mode through which the Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth, bestows all His goodness upon mankind, especially salvation from sin. This mode precludes any boasting on the part of any person to whom grace has been given. (Ephesians 1:6,12,14; 1Corinthians 1:29-31) Faith Alone (Sola Fide) is the means God has ordained for receiving His grace-gift of salvation from sin. Faith itself is a gift from God. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Acts 18:27) To God Alone be the Glory (Soli Deo Gloria) for it is from Him alone that every good and perfect gift comes and He alone is worthy of praise for His gifts. (James 1:17,18; Revelation 4:11; 5:12) Amen!”

Yeah, yeah, yeah….

  1. A Freethinker is a slave, huh? But giving in unconditionally to god, living your life around his will, that must be freedom then? So, why are we so opposed to slavery?

  2. I just wanted to post a comment because I can!!!!!!!! Hehehehe. That sign makes me laugh really. There is nothing for closed mindedness and ignorance.

  3. I will never understand the obsession with this 2,000 year old dude… for that matter, why are Gods always dudes?

  4. free-think-er n. A person who forms opinions about religion on the basis of reason, independently of tradition, authority, or established belief. Freethinkers include atheists, agnostics and rationalists.

    First of all, from the definition above, one can determine that a freethinker is no one’s slave, because we develop our thoughts independently. So, I find this sign to be both ludricous and hysterical.

  5. Why do these way-too-pious folk seem to think that we would slave away for a non-existent entity?

  6. You @#!* atheist liberals make me sick. You are the cause of all the world’s problems. May the all-loving Holy One bestow nothing but misery upon you for all eternity! Die! Die! Die! DIE!!!

  7. Sorry, that was only me farting around.
