What’s sad is that someone must be buying this…
What is Sand of Christ?
Sand of Christ is a keepsake that has been blessed and made holy by an ordained minister. It is a vial of sand that has been filtered, cleaned and purified, then anointed and blessed through a long and expensive process. The vial is secured in a waterproof metal capsule that has been highly polished by hand. Each one has the cross laser engraved.
Clearly, we do not make any false promises of magical healing or far-fetched claims. However, Sand of Christ is not a gimmick. Each one is GUARANTEED to be blessed and made holy. As such, we know that each and every one carries the positive power of Christ within its contents.
Each vial costs $29.99. Plus $4.99 for shipping.
Apparently, they have not yet achieved a profit.
Every time I see one of these gimmicks now, I begin to wonder if it’s an atheist running it. It seems like such an easy scam to pull off… and the victims wouldn’t even realize it.
Ok, here’s an ethical dilemma for you.
Let’s say atheists begin a similar kind of store… called “Blankets of Christ” (or whatever). The blankets are blessed by ordained ministers (Humanist ones, of course, though we wouldn’t mention that) and sold for profit. Anyone who buys the blankets, thinking they are getting closer to God, are thrilled. They have no idea there’s nothing holy about them. Money begins to roll in.
All profits are donated to a good charity.
Would you support the Blankets for Christ store?
