    In the 1940's and 1950's there were no Interstate hiways. Nearly every road or hiway was two lane....much of it very narrow. In Tennessee and several other states the speed limit through towns, communities, school areas, etc. was 30mph or less and when one drove out of the area a sign to let them know they were through the restricted area stated, "Please Drive Safely" In other words there was no speed limit.

    Any substantial trip of 50 miles or more would show at least one roadside sign which boldly stated, "Repent, Jesus Is Coming Soon"

    Route 58 from Kingston, TN to Chattanooga was such a route and there were no less than 5 religious signs along that 80-90 mile drive.

    Guess What Folks.........He didn't come and the signs have essentially disappeared. Is it possible that folks have changed their minds or is it that if they put up such a sign they will have to take it down.

    He'll be here...in His own time, not ours. The way this world is going, i can't believe it can be too much longer. He sure has a lot of patience with us.....

    No man knows the day or the hour of Christ's return. However the signs were not in vain. They made you think as you are mentioning them now. Many people who have read those signs have died by now, hopefully it made them think of their own mortality before they passed. The churches probably took them down but replaced them with more effective ways of spreading the gospel.

    Good point. That angel Moroni was more reliable than the 2000 year old fairy tales...at least AS reliable

    Jews (except the Christian Jews) say He hasn't come yet.

    Actually, the Mormons are right, he was here. But He's coming back again....when He's ready to.

    It isn't even that. He just felt the need to take another crap on Christians. It must feel good to him, seeing as how he's so packed full of shit.
