On a lighter note … do you think dogs go to heaven?

Two churches in a southern USA town are fighting it out. You could call it a 'signs debate' between Our Lady of Martyrs Catholic Church and Cumberland Presbyterian, a fundamentalist church, which are right across the street from each other. 

From top to bottom you will see the response and counter-response over time …

Are you feeling more Catholic or Presbyterian on this issue?

What will the Presbyterians say next?

  1. I needed a good laugh. This is hilarious! I’m intrigued to find out what the Presbyterian Church will say next too. Thanks Mark πŸ™‚ HaHaHa

  2. I tend to think, when God makes everything new, he will probably make EVERYTHING new…. it would be very boring with just humans around, hardly in keeping with our creative God. I’m sorry to be the one to break this to you Nicole, but Lions are cats too!
    “The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together” πŸ™‚
    I do hope the church signs were just a publicity stunt… how sad if that is really how they communicate with each other!

  3. Rhiannon, it’s only a practical joke πŸ™‚ Here’s a link to check it out:
    You can make your own funny generated signs on this link below πŸ™‚
    Ps. God loves all creatures including cats…
    GO CATS!!! πŸ™‚ Looking good.

  4. Well if dogs have a spirit then they will go to Heaven….I make sure mine have a Gin & Tonic everyday….ha ha ha…question is : do they have a spirit?

  5. that dog that bit me at age 8 went to hell I’m sure…
    or maybe purgatory ( if we’re taking the Catholic position….)
    I think I might have to spend some time there too!!

  6. I spent all night doing a Bible study on the topic – an I now believe that the Prebby’s are correct.
    Here is my conclusion:
    The Bible does put dogs in a bad light – warning us to be wary of them:
    β€œBeware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!” (Philippians 3:2 NKJV)
    Furthermore, Revelation its states that dogs are specifically excluded from entering Heaven:
    β€œAnd behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”[ Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 BUT OUTSIDE ARE DOGS and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie”. (Revelation 22 NKHV)

  7. Hey Richard, Great research, but have you considered that ‘Dogs’ were known as Gentiles in Biblical times πŸ™‚ Even Jesus called a Gentile woman a ‘dog’ (see Matthew 15:21-28; Mark 7:24-30)
    Matthew 15:21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 22 A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession.”
    23 Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, “Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.”
    24 He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”
    25 The woman came and knelt before him. “Lord, help me!” she said.
    26 He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”
    27 “Yes, Lord,” she said, “but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.”
    28 Then Jesus answered, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.”
    And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

  8. How about
    “Rocks maybe – but certainly there’s no rockers, nor in Heaven. Or rock music either… Humbug.”.

  9. That should be:
    “Rocks maybe – but certainly there’s no rockers, in Heaven. Or rock music either for that matter … Humbug.”.
