So the sign says… Can anyone explain? (does anyone want to fill them in on how “government” is spelled?)

I get that “eternal life” is a primary tenet of the church, but what is an “eternal life policy.” Eternal life is only for believers. OK, fine… but what does “government” have to do with it. There’s separation of church and state, this isn’t a theocracy, but is there an underlying expectation perhaps? Is the world, or even a tiny subset, clamoring for government to have an eternal life policy? What the hell would that look like? Is this a message to divert people paying attention to government to redirect attention away from government and towards the church to attain eternal life? Is it a message to ignore the government’s attempts to protect us with masking, vaccination, and SCIENCE? Who needs a vaccination when you’ve got eternal life!

“Government will never have an eternal life policy.” Well, DOH! Why would anyone expect that? And why say that?

I left a message saying I’d seen that sign, repeated the words, and said “I don’t understand, could someone explain, please?” (651) 388-9175

I spent a lot of time at church, went to both early and late communion classes, took “World Religions” at Central, and I consider myself rather educated in a variety of theological notions. Color me dense… I just don’t understand the point.

What does this mean? The actual words… or between the lines… EH?!?! Any ideas?

One that someone just forwarded:

9 Ronald Reagan Quotes About Taxes

4. “No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!”
