Problem: Businesses selling sexually "oriented" merchandise such as clothing, pornographic materials, sex toys, etc. are entering new markets. Customers are usually males. The result of this merchandising is the promotion of emotional adultery and fornication with faithlessness to women and children who deserve fidelity.
Plan: Combine the spiritual power of Christ through the Holy Spirit with men's groups of multiples of 12 to proclaim messages to incoming prospective customers. Messages should convey the Holy Spirit into their consciences using the Burma Shave advertising technique plus the use of cell phones.
What is the Burma Shave advertising technique? It is the use of outdoor advertising in which several small signs, each with incomplete messages but taken together form an entire message.
Example of application:
First call the police to advise them of your activity to avoid conflict. They may wish to send a patrol car to observe. You may need a permit.
From several different churches, groups of 2 men come a total of 12 men in total who park their cars near the objective retail business outlet. They meet for a pre-arranged time lasting at least 30 minutes.
All 12 men bring cell phones. 10 of them bring signs.
Divided into 2 groups of 6 men each, one group of 6 stands on public sidewalk to one side of the driveway into the business so as to be visible but not obstructive to incoming customers. The other 6 men stand on the same sidewalk to the other side of the driveway in the same manner. (Quite a sight.)
5 of the men in each group hold signs, the remaining man holds a cell phone prepared to take video in case of conflict. Cell phones should be prepared to take pictures of but not necessarily aimed beforehand at license plates.
Examples of messages on the signs:
Sign #1: It's a lie that
Sign #2: you can't overcome
Sign #3: natural drive if you
Sign #4: have Christ within.
Sign #5 Got Christ?
Sign #1: The law of the
Sign #2: Spirit of Life in
Sign #3: Christ Jesus HAS made
Sign #4: you FREE from the
Sign #5: the law of sin & death.
Sign #1: Would you be free
Sign #2 from cords of sin
Sign #3: that hold you down
Sign #4: from loving your wife/family?
Sign #5: Free prayer right here.
Sign #1: Have you turned your
Sign #2: back on Jesus?
Sign #3: If U turn around
Sign #4: You'll find Him
Sign #5: right here. Free prayer.
Notes: The number of 12 men coincides with 12 disciples and 12 members of a jury. Men ministering to mostly men in a show of numbers is a strong message. But, men are being challenged here, so conflict is very possible. Women and children should consider not subjecting themselves to harm's way. Shorter times of about 30 minutes may limit exposure to conflict. Every consideration for safety should be contemplated.
Conclusion: Pornography is a pervasive weakness within the Christian community as well as outside of it. Grace is not meant to excuse nor to compromise, but to provide opportunity for repentance, change of direction into wholeness of relationships, by the strength of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ.
