Facebook advertisements

Hot Christian SinglesThe absurdity of facebook advertisements has reached astounding levels. I present the figure at right, which purports that I can meet “Hot Christian Singles” which is not (necessarily) a ridiculous notion, I’ve usually found Christian girls to be agreeable. What really stands out about this particular advertisement is the model they chose to represent the Christian single that I can supposedly meet, now I’m not claiming that this particular gal isn’t a Christian, she may very well be quite pure and pious. I’m not sure if it is the 6 months worth of tanning to achieve that level of bronze, the enormous (presumably fake) breasts, or her particular method of displaying said breasts, but she doesn’t strike me as the paradigm case of a Christian girl. Far be it from me to say that a Christian must look a certain way, but seriously, there is a limit to the level of vanity that should be displayed by the little Christs among us.

The next question has nothing to do with the picture. If you are claiming to be a Christian male shouldn’t you be seeking to look past the physical appearance of your potential lovers in order to forge a meaningful and spiritual relationship? It seems to me that looking exclusively for the “Hot” is more than a little sacrilegious.

What would Jesus do?
I’d hit it

if i were jesus, i'd offer to forgive them of all their previous sins if they would "care to engage in some beautiful acts of sinful slimy time"
except i'd have super-duper small print on the bottom of the document requiring the signee to do her thing (pun intended) stating that all sins committed with me would not be forgiven because jesus doesn't like sluts

blasphemy! :) looking for hotness is not a sin. its what you can do with those mental images afterwards that are sinful.

not that I'm a religion expert or anything, but the concept of totally avoidnig temptation (sheltering) as opposed to knowing about it, enduring it and not giving in to it is where piousness kicks in. afterall a concept untested cannot be considered true

I wonder if the dating agency got permission from UCLA to use their logo in the ad.... You're right though the most of the facebook ads are pretty off the wall now-a-days .

Well, here's what Jesus would say, apparently:

I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. (NIV, 1 Timothy 2:9-10)

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. (NIV, 1 Peter 3:2-5)

I figured that there would be some scripture to back me up, but I didn’t feel like doing the legwork. Thanks Faith!

If you're a link spammer you should know that no links on this page will be followed by a site indexer (go ahead, check my meta tags), so it will not improve your page ranking. . . thus it is kinda ridiculous to post here
