    I am religious, but I do think it was wrong of the church to have that on a big billboard.

    I believe God uses science and medicine to help people...the two don't have to be mutually exclusive.

    Anyway, I don't want to get into a huge debate about it, but I do agree that putting that on a large billboard was over stepping the mark.

    I 100% disagree with the ad and think its actually quite off.

    I would not be as offended by..

    Sorry quotes aren't working for me right now.

    Fiveinthebed...like I said, I don't want to get into a debate about it but I don't want to be rude and ignore your question.

    No, I don't think He created those things. There is good and evil in this world.

    I guess we don't have to understand everyone's reasoning behind their beliefs, we just have to respect it

    I think it could of been worded differently. Maybe saying "The power of prayer will help you fight the battle" or something similar. Not directly saying that he does cure cancer as sadly that can be taken as misleading.

    It's all wording but I think maybe a discussion with the church regarding their wording on signs would be more approriate then a ruling of false advertising.

    Seems the 'good' discriminates based on privilege ( individual access to money and power)... But the 'evil' doesn't.


    Lovey I deleted my question right after I posted it ( why you can't quote it) because I knew it would take the thread off topic, and lead to demands for 'respect'.

    I guess it's false advertising depending on who is reading the billboard. My gran would swear up and down the block that prayers cured her cancer.

    I'd say that modern medicine cured cancer but spiritual peace and acceptance made you less stressful and helped significantly. But I'm a sucker for praying. I can honestly say that I've been blessed with most of my prayers answered.
