Good Advertising?

I came across this interesting article the other day. Entitled, “Are we sinning yet” it talks about one Canadian website’s attempts to create spiritual dialogue about subjects that perhaps non-Christians do not often think about. I am interested in this because the website has placed ads in magazines in newspapers which take a different approach to advertising. I will let the ads speak for themselves below. What I want to know is would this approach be tolerated in the Bible-Belt, where it seems that advertising tactics have mainly included quippy sayings on marquee boards. Tell me what you think. I included the picture and cited the caption underneath because the font text is too small in the picture!

About joshkellar

I'm married to an incredible woman of God and have two daughters that love to laugh and delight in the Lord. My goal in life is to bring others into closer relationship with God by engaging them in His story as we journey together in a faith-filled community. The basis for every decision I make in life comes back to my calling to share the love of God with those around me. My hope is that at every opportunity I will encourage others into a greater lifelong journey of discipleship.

  1. Well, I would certainly think they would be discussion starters…

    Would they be tolerated in the Bible Belt? I would say yes.

    Do I like them? No. I’d prefer a more positive message personally.

  2. I love them but my opinons are seldom representative of the “bible belted.”
    Din’t know you were a blogger till I saw a comment on Frank Belizzi’s blog.

  3. Interesting images.

    The one that sparkes an issue which probably digs deepest is the issue of agreeing/disagreeing with the Bible. Not exactly sure about the point. I’m interested to hear what others might think it means.
