Well, I guess I don’t need all the Armor of God PJs.
I really just want the headdress and the shield.
But I’m sure the Pants o’ Truth would be of use in the bedroom as well…
And they said indoctrinating children with religion at a young age was child abuse…
The PJs are $39.95 a pop.
The graphic says that a mother inspired the pajamas when reading Ephesians 6:10-18 to her daughter every night.
What does that passage say?
… Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one…
That should give children nightmares, not lull them to sleep… In 10 years, someone please keep those children away from me.
Then again, these children are probably more likely to become atheists.
When your parents are into Jesus this much — when pictures of you in your Jesus Jammies begin to re-emerge as you grow up — you’ll want to run away from your childhood faith like crazy.
Part of me is amused.
I think it’s safe to say I became an atheist after thinking about it while lying in bed over the course of several weeks. Late night was a peaceful time to reflect on the big questions I was struggling with at the time.
Can you imagine a person realizing that God might not exist while wearing this getup?
