Messages from years past endure in people's in boxes, where they discover, or rediscover the Word of God.
The billboard was temporary, but the message was eternal.
Author Frank Shaw called the witty quotes from God a gimmick.
“Some people would think it’s not in good taste, because God doesn’t speak to people like that. But, at the same time, it is an interesting notion that the Spirit’s is moving someone to investigate God further,” said Shaw.
He said it has more to do with the recipient than the message, that someone has to be open to receive the message.
“It could arouse the curiosity in the thoughts of somebody to investigate further,” said Shaw.
Texas United Advertising's Marty Moore said the national messages were meant to bring awareness of God to the people.
“We paid for the paper and posting ourselves, but we used those designs,” said Moore.
He added he thought it was a good effective campaign to get people thinking.
“You’re really not supposed to change the Scriptures and some of those kind of took the Scriptures a little lightly,” said Moore.
He said the messages were meant to bring awareness of God to the people.
