So I was sitting in traffic during the afternoon commute today when I saw part of a billboard up ahead. It was practically glowing in the waning sunlight. I read "JESUS CAN FREE YOU..." and the rest was blocked from my view by a truck.
I thought, "Free me from what?? The weight of my soul crushing debt? The monotony of a 9-5 office job? What is it?! I must know what Jesus can save me from this time!"
Slowly, the traffic crept forward and I could see more and more of the sign. After what felt like an eternity, I finally saw the whole thing.

JESUS CAN FREE YOU FROM SIN

Well that was disappointing. Some of us quite enjoy living in sin. I certainly don't feel the need to be freed from it. But it seems, even here in mostly liberal, progressive Massachusetts, I can never be truly free of having religion crammed down my throat.

Happy Friday, y'all!

Yes, Jesus can free you but if it wasn't for the talking snake story there would be no need for Jesus (or anyone else) to do anything. Think on that.
Then we have this group on TV that wants you to just close your eyes and ask Jesus to come into your heart. Apparently you are not supposed to see him when he does this. I wonder if this would help your heart trouble?

Is it just me or are we seeing more of a these signs in the Northeast?

This is is the only one I've seen lately

@WickedNicki well then it must be spreading. In the Albany NY area we've had a few. Though the ones that are not on the main highway have been quickly and hilariously vandalized.

Maybe you didn't see the whole sign. It probably said: :JESUS CAN SAVE YOU FROM SINGLES CRUISES!

I’d say JC had better start with some ‘trickle-down’ saving … starting with that guy in The White House.. Shit - I’m too far behind him to ever catch up!

Yeah...I'm still looking for the upside of that.

I was told that 'sin' is a state 'without love' - I rather think I fall in an out of this state many times in a day totally pissed at the weather and as I am typing this the sun came out-
