Cheers for Interstate Batteries
In the past several years, there has been a growing outcry aimed at businesses over the content of their advertising. Quite a bit of the outcry and complaint is justified. Have you watched the Super Bowl much since Janet Jackson's little "foip" incident? Those aren't the only ads out there that "push the envelope." Many are -- quite frankly -- disgusting.
But today, I want to give praise where praise is due. I want to give a shout out to Interstate Batteries.
How many companies these days spend money to spread the Gospel so openly? I personally think Interstate Batteries' "God's Love" ads are refreshing, and done in a very winsome way. Yes, I am sure the content could be theologically deeper, but I am still thankful. They at least can get people talking about the issue if nothing else.
They also provide the opportunity for each one of us to talk about it at the water cooler if and when it gets mentioned. Hey, maybe we can even mention it.
Anyway, kudos to Interstate Batteries. And here's hoping more Christian-owned businesses follow their lead.
