God on TV

Sometimes you get things in the mail you actually don’t delete. Below is such an example. The reason I like this is that I have often looked at TV-ads and wondered at how gospel-centered they are, with exception of the ending. For example, the COKE commercials always talk about the “real thing” and how life is great because of this one “thing”. Then they ruin everything by showing a Coke bottle instead of Jesus – the real “real thing”. 😉

A fifth grade teacher in a Christian school asked her class to look at TV commercials and see if they could use them in some way to communicate ideas about God. Here are some of the results:

He works miracles.

God is like a FORD
He’s got a better idea.

God is like COKE
He’s the real thing.

He cares enough to send His very best.

God is like TIDE
He gets the stains out that others leave behind.

He  brings good things to life.

God is like SEARS
He has everything.

God is like ALKA-SELTZER
Try Him, you’ll like Him!

God is like SCOTCH TAPE
You can’t see Him, but you know He’s there.

God is like DELTA
He’s ready when you are.

God is like ALLSTATE
You’re in good hands with Him.

God is like VO-5 Hair Spray
He holds through all kinds of weather.

God is like DIAL SOAP
Aren’t you glad you have Him?  Don’t you wish everybody did?

God is like the U.S. POST OFFICE
Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet nor ice will keep Him from His appointed destination.

God is like CHEVROLET
The heart beat of America

Good to the very last drop.

God is like BOUNTY
He is the quicker picker upper… He can handle the tough jobs… and He won’t fall apart on you.

I thought that was good for remembering on a Sunday morning.
Have a nice Sabbath,

  1. I loved the list – very cute, though I wasn’t familiar with a couple of the products mentioned. It’s funny, the things children can come up with sometimes! Like Anna said though, sometimes the products in the advertisements don’t always live up to those fantastic claims made about them in the ads – which often almost sound too good to be true. Perhaps there should be an advertisment for God, claiming all of those things on His behalf, with a guarantee that He’ll live up to all those promises!

    By the way Louis – Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful and memorable celebration for your special day!

  2. A great list! It feels strange to see God compared with things, mostly becouse things don´t keep the commercials promices… He is always so much MORE. But He still HAS all those good qualities, so 🙂
