If you own a business where you take people’s money, then just be up front about it.
Must you invoke the Bible in the process?
Now there’s a candle that lets you experience the scent of Jesus, and they’ve been selling out by the case.
“We see it as a ministry, ” says Bob Tosterud, who together with his wife came up with the idea for the candle.
Light up the candle called “His Essence” and its makers say you’ll experience the fragrance of Christ.
Bob Tosterud and wife Karen say the formula is all spelled out in Psalm 45.
For those unaware, Psalm 45 is when God commands Jesus to shamelessly profit on his reputation.
Mmm… smells Jesustastic.
“It’s the only one on the market and everyone tells us it’s very unique and nothing like it,” says Karen Tosterud.
“We wanted people to be able to experience Christ in new ways and to be able to read a bible and have that scent and that candle as a reminder that he is with us all the time.”
“You can’t see him and you can’t touch him,” says Bob Tosterud. “This is a situation where you may be able to sense him by smelling. And it provides a really new dimension to one’s experience with Jesus.”
They’ve sold over 10,000 candles… at about $18 a pop.
Why haven’t atheists capitalized on scented candles yet?
I could make millions off of Eau de Hitchens.
I just need to find a way to bottle tobacco and scotch.
