Like I’ve said before: If I grow tired of it, I start mocking it.
Probably the first time I saw one of those
The gospel according to graphic designers. Pinterest
Aww. Now I don’t need syrup for my waffles.
I see internet posters like this all the time. I even make some of ’em. Some of these things are inspiring or clever or well-designed. I also appreciate it when Christians quote the bible properly.
But some designers aren’t so conscientious, and some Christians are mighty gullible. They don’t read their bibles, y’see. They’re not gonna read their bibles, either; they’re never gonna fact-check an internet poster, find out the scripture’s been misquoted, or that the sentiment or inspirational saying actually isn’t biblical. They leave that to killjoys like me.
I don’t have an issue with laying out John 3.16 so it looks like a happy Valentine’s acrostic, but if you’re trying to claim there’s something profound or insightful in layout, of all things, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Any scripture can be rearranged this way. Did it myself.
Unlike John 3.16, it’s even broken up into full clauses. TXAB
In other words, it’s kinda perfect for the way most people celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Pretty sure it won’t go viral though. John 3.16 will always get all the love.
Happy St. V’s day. Love one another.
