Suit Up for Salvation

Wondering what to wear to the next Bible study or church potluck? Need high visibility
clothing for jogging at night?

Wondering what to wear to the next Bible study or church potluck? Need high visibility clothing for jogging at night? Pick-Me Products offers all the outfit you'll ever need for occasions such as these: Put on the full "Armor of God." What better way to illustrate the complete nature of God's protection than with this full size, foam-rubber armor in garish fluorescent colors that show up brilliantly in standard lighting or glow mysteriously under a black-light bulb. The set includes a belt of truth, a breastplate of righteousness, a shield of faith, a helmet of salvation, and a sword of Spirit. Shin guards of sanctity are additional. Sorry, no shoes of peace available.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
