here’s the perfect witnessing item for the hot summer months! toss a few of these puppies… er… duckies… in the neighbors’ pools, and in no time, they’ll be knocking down your door, begging you to lead them in the sinner’s prayer!

really, what says “the majestic gospel of jesus christ” better than a “colors of faith ducky”

truly deserving of the coveted jesus junk of the month award.

That is beyond disgusting. Just when you think cheesy Christians have run out of new products…

As far as a “witnessing tool” it’s horrible. But…and I may be sticking my foot in my mouth here…it seems like not such a bad idea maybe with younger children and having a teaching moment or 2 in the bathtub. I don’t know.

I wish I knew who designed these things. This one wouldn’t be too bad, if you told me that it was the design of a bunch of 3rd graders during a VBS project.

Unfortunately, I’m betting that some adult with an overactive imagination regarding their own marketing savvy designed it. They’re probably disappointed that they aren’t millionaires yet.

Did you look at the squeeze bear with the same design? That one’s kind of funny. When you feel like letting rip a long list of profanities, just squeeze the little bear instead! Interesting concept, though probably not quite what Jesus would do.

You mean the above wouldn’t get this month’s award? LOL.

You should see the bobblehead John the Baptist figures …

FWIW, I forgive Oriental Trading Company for making and selling these because they’ll make whatever as long as anyone will buy it. It’s the Christians who make stuff like this as “God’s next Big Thing” that annoy me.

Of course, if I thought of something cheesy and I sold a million units I’d think it was wonderful and clearly God’s Spirit would be behind it.

The best part is that it’s not just a christian ducky, but a “colors of faith” ducky. Now Jews, Muslims, and Hindus can incorporate a rubber duck into their rememberance of Jesus Blood and their new life in Him! Technically, I’m now wondering if this even qualifies as Jesus Junk. BTW: What is the crown of life?
