Ah church signs, the perfect vehicles for bad Christian jokes, complex theology crammed into a overly “clever” sentence and Jesus-juked pop culture references.

We’ve already established that church signs were basically an early form of Twitter for pun-loving pastors (see 14 Church Signs that Would Also Work as Tweets).

But, as long as there are marquees outside of church buildings, their will be blank canvases just waiting for the masterstroke of a minister to come up with the next “God Answers Knee Mail.”

We asked you, our readers, to share the best/worst/funniest/most cringeworthy church signs you’ve spotted over the years, and you did not disappoint.

Bonus!

It’d be a real shame to create a listicle featuring church signs and not include this “Blurred Lines”/“Church Signs” parody.
