Signs of the times??

This is what we call Giant Jesus or Touch Down Jesus. I love that I got this picture on my phone. You'll notice the sign of the church on the right. Usually flashing pretty bright lights and times when they hold services or things like that. "SRC"= Solid Rock Church. This was one of the sites along I-75 on your way to Cincinnati from my house. I think one of these days I'm going to go stand by it to get my picture so you can see how big Jesus is compared to me. Amazingly HUGE!!! Oh and I'm not sure why they put this Jesus here, but some people think its because there is a hustler store right at the next exit. Some of us need to be given other things to ponder as we drive the long freeway mileage I guess.

We are pretty religious here in Ohio.

So a month or so ago on my way to Columbus via I-71 I remembered about these billboards and made my mom slow down enough so that I could get some pictures.
I just find it true...and also just somewhat entertaining to see these signs every time I take this specific route from our home to Columbus.
I also love that its not advertising a church or something either. It just speaks the truth. Interesting. I'm not sure how long they have been there either. Seems like a long time though
And the all important thought provoking question. I mean something that huge you can't miss!!! If I was to take the other way to Columbus (I-70) There would be much more construction along the way, but I would be able to see the message that "Jesus is REAL". I took that picture awhile ago and I can't remember where I saved it.

I've been away from Ohio for way too long! I've never even seen the touchdown Jesus!

Man, I wish Phoenix would get some of those giant billboards and post them along all the major freeways. Maybe people would smile a bit more and not be so naughty. On the other hand it might make them more grouchy because it will remind them of how bad they are :)
