Church Sign Epic Fails: Faith vs. Reason Throwdown

I’m not going to have time to post this tomorrow, so enjoy your Church Sign Epic Fails a little early this week! Today, we have a face-off between faith and reason, as some seem to feel like having both coexist is a physical impossibility. So with a few others thrown in for a little spice, enjoy this cage match between faith and reason.

Let’s get ready to grumble!!!!!

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess the Christian flier has a sheep on it?

Though most cultural theology comes off as pandering, I’d sit through this series fo sho. Especially if the quote “Do or do not; there is no try” appears at least once.

Then why did God give us reasoning minds???

Yeah, cause we Christians never do that. :-/

Is that a fact?

So two plus three is “Jesus Christ?” Damn! I put “five” on my test.

Amen, and amen.

Yeah, but if I’m underwater and he’s up on top…never mind.

Doc, I got this faith thing and it won’t stop leaking…
