Hahahaha, thats gotta be the stupidest thing ever. one question for the makers: How can someone 'meditate' on something in their shoe. Keep up the good work X-er. Your making the world a safer place.
Almost sounds blasphamous.. Pretty weird stuff anyways..Seabhag
Ok...now see...Why can't I be the one to come up with ideas like this?!? I mean shoot! I guess this is just further proof that with the right marketing, any weird idea you might have for a product is a potential money maker. I would love to know how you find this stuff, x-er! Man...I really need to think more and then patent those thoughts or something. Wow...
The stupidity of man never ceases to amaze me, and even though I've seen it all my life, the EXTREME stupidity of the religious is the most amazing of all.Wow.
That's not the only great way of staying close to scripture Mr. Gothard could be using: http://www.decaturdaily.com/decaturdaily/religion/040110/tattoo.shtmlDoes he realize the possible powerful opportunity he's missing out on of witnessing through scripture?http://www.decaturdaily.com/decaturdaily/religion/040110/tattoo.shtml
Now wait a minute. You yankee christians need to know that one of the more popular hymns here in the south is "Standing on the Promises of God." These things make perfect sense, in fact, I may begin to market some underware so christians can sit on the promises of God.
How about selling bras. You can say you are in the Lord's hands.
Oh man, this brought back memories of before the Internet, Spam, and pop-ups, when you'd get those wacko junk letters from some cultish faith-healers about with a sheet of paper to lay under your pillow before you slept at night or a head covering to pray with. They'd include these fantastic stories of how people who used these props would suddenly win the lottery, come into hundreds of thousands of dollars or be healed of their incurable diseases. The kicker was that you'd have to send them a "donation" for the "prop" to get the heavenly reward...
This has to be some sort of joke because having one foot propped up with an "in-soul" and the other foot not would cause back problems. Anyone with half a brain would have realized that...
It's like a 21st century version of the phylacteries for good little pharisees!! gag me
Histerical! Truth by osmosis. Maybe if the product placed the Scripture verses closer to the brain, the effects would prove superior...like Scripture verse hat liners...?!?
Oh no. kayaliz said "phylacteries" and it made me think of prophylactics. Prophylacteries, maybe?
ROFL...oh...please...stop...you're hurting me...ROFL...can't breathe!! HA HA
I know this is a satirical sight but I could not let this one go by without saying something.I do not believe that writing scripture verses on your socks and then "standing on the Word of God" is 'religious' or 'blasphemous'. I also do not believe anyone should "market the gospel". But we had a little boy that had to have radiation treatments for cancer. He was very young when he had to have those and it was impossible for him on his own to be still, shy of medicating him. The LORD impressed upon me to write His promises on the bottom of my son's socks so that when he was in this horrible body mold (having to lay perfectly still for over 30 minutes at a time) he could 'stand' on those promises and not be afraid. Whether or not his wearing of those socks was the reason for him being able to be PERFECTLY STILL for all the treatments and requiring no medication, I don't know. But please don't criticize someone for doing that. Sometimes doing something tangible like that helps when you are hurting and frightened. It was much more comforting knowing that our son had stood on those promises when he died.
Lady, I'm sorry about your son.But it's OK to imagine that putting scripture in your shoes instead of your head is somehow beneficial because your LORD told you to? I would question the source of the little voice in my head at this point.
To the previous anonymous poster (and in Christian love I say this)...I'm not sure what your age is, but I would suspect you have not had to experience anything as horrific as cancer, or watching someone you love suffer and die. I'm glad my Heavenly Father could relate to how I felt.My son was 3 years old at the time of the radiation. Not a whole lot of "memorization" work going on in his little head. Chemo drugs on top of radiation affects people's memory. With respect - as for the socks, how is that any different than a T-shirt with a scripture verse on it? Or a ball cap? Or a tie? It's not the item, but the Word written, stitched or silk screened on it that is important. I was merely trying to point out that sometimes in desperate, heart-breaking situations we do things that help us feel closer to the Lord; to sense His presence and be reminded of His promises. It is in THOSE times that the enemy tempts the most. And "standing on God's promises" is one way we draw nearer to God.X-er ----> If you or any of your readers have children of any age, go into their room while they're sleeping, kiss their head and say a prayer in thanksgiving to God that you HAVE that special little blessing.

And I was merely trying to point out that the personal insight gained from a tramatic experience can differ from the truth that we find in God's word. It's simply the difference between insight and application. You can't go telling people on a website that something works because you felt it did and that they are wrong to slam it. You actually could be right,but you can't expect anyone to take you too seriously. Nice try with the age card, but common sense takes precedent over people who confuse feelings with facts. Chill out.
Those Bible verse shoe inserts are a joke! These people think they're holy because they have like one verse in their shoe?!I remembered the principles that dear Mr. Gothard (God rest his sole) taught me about what being a real Christian is all about. If people in the church are doing something, you gotta out do them to show that you are The True Believer.I've had two Bibles straped under my feet now for a few days. I'm definitely feeling closer to God, but am wondering if anyone has an extra bible or two to donate. They're wearing out fast.
To Anon @ 8.35pm,Im sorry for your loss. :0(I genuinely, truely am.Whatever you need to hold onto to help heal your heart and to cope through the nightmare of the loss of your child, I will respect.I can understand that grief and uncertainty can cause us to reach out for things that others might reguard as odd.I do not critize you or think less of you because the 'Mommy' in me knows that the pain you suffered in the loss of your child is great.When it boils down to it, it was about relationships. You with your son. You with the Lord. Your son with the Lord.The placement of scriptures pales in the knowledge that those words are written on your heart, like your love for your son will always be. That having been said, tangible comfort is something no family in crisis should be withheld.May God bless and keep you and your family.-Annie
