Born Again Widget


IconBorn Again Christian News Widget for Mac 10.4 was released this morning. 22 downloads at the moment but I am sure this number will rise quickly. I am so glad they didn’t use CAPITALS in every sentence on their site. Best part of the website is a gospel tract page for the street preachers, fundies and hard-core born-againers . . . or maybe for those who want to reminisce on those good ol’ days. Like me .. . for example. And if you want to get born again the old-school way, then pray through the sinners prayer here. Heck – lets all pray the prayer this morning. Eh?

Don’t forget to check out the other Christian resources and the full selection of Chick tracts like this new one.

    oh man … it´s a long time ago, that i read the chick tracks.
    i remember a time, when i thought that these books are cool and good for telling people about god …
    i´m so happy, that my view of god and his story has changed =)
    now i can´t believe, that there are still people who give these bokklets to non christians … what is the massage they want to tell?
    anyway! jesus rulz & GoD is in control!

    That rocks. “Samantha, the Potter books open a doorway that will put untold millions of kids into hell. Call the Ghostbusters!!!”
    Who ya gonna call…?

  • Rodney Olsen says:

    Wow. It looks just like all the old Chick tracts. That’s such a blast from the past.
    My favourite was always the evolution tract. 🙂
    “Hey … what about all the occultic junk in my room? Should I destroy it?”
    If Samantha’s room is full of ‘occultic junk’, I think there’s more to worry about than whether she’s reading a J.K. Rowling book.

    A new form of chick lit?

  • david says:

    This reminds me of of when my Dad got in big trouble when I was a kid for taking me to see Return of the Jedi cause it was of the devil… this was about the same time we burnt our Astrix and Obalix books cause they were of the devil to. No wonder we Christians are seen as weird….

  • Melody says:

    Andrew, though I’ve never heard of these Chick Tracts (didn’t grow up fundie) I would be unlikely to use them. I do get some flavor of sarcasm on your part with regard to the sinner’s prayer and am curious to know which parts of it you find untruthful. How does one get ‘born again’ the new-school way?
    Just curious.

  • is this thing for real or tongue in cheek?

  • Matt Tew says:

    I also have the same question as melody. Bag out chick, sure – but what specifically about the “sinners prayer” page do you have a problem with?
    Please do answer

  • andrew jones says:

    i did.
    i actually read through it again prayerfully as part of my devotion that day.
    i no longer employ it as a simple fool-proof formulaic prayer for people praying to receive Jesus like i did when i was a street evangelist, but it still blesses me to read it.
