New York church replaces atheist billboard with one about God

Could this be a sign of Peace on Earth?

It appears that the battle of the billboards is, for now, over.

Details from the Christian Post:

Just in time for Christmas, the atheist billboard in New Jersey that declared Christmas is a “myth” was replaced this week with a Christian ad.

A “God is” billboard, sponsored by Times Square Church in New York City, is seen near the Lincoln Tunnel. The ad replaces an atheist ad that declared Christmas is a “myth.” View Full Image(Photo: Times Square Church) The American Atheists’ billboard declaring Christmas is a “myth” comes down. The ad was replaced this week with a “God is” ad, sponsored by Times Square Church in New York City. The ad is near the Lincoln Tunnel.

The new billboard reads “God is” and features a plethora of words and phrases including “good,” “alive,” “Jesus,” “aware of your struggle” and “the one who loved you.”

The ad is located near the Lincoln Tunnel, one of the most traveled tunnels in the world. It was sponsored by Times Square Church which had the same ads plastered on some 1,000 New York City subway cars early this year.

“We want to encourage people to seek God and prove that indeed He is,” Senior Pastor Carter Conlon said.

The ad, he said, describes God “in just a few of the infinite ways He proves His presence to us every day.”

    Deacon Greg,
    Thanks for all the wonderful articles, homilies, photos and fun you bring each day. I can hardly count the number of excellent websites and blogs to which you have directed your readers over the years. Good luck with the Patheos site, it appears you are in good company. Today’s photo of the billboard again reminded me of a local effort here in Cincinnati, OH just beofre the holidays. Here is the link:
