Scriptures in The Personal Care Department... Is this just wrong, or what?!?

Now, I own my own business, but we are not in competition with this one... But I wanted to see if the rest of you see a problem here. To me it seems as if they are useing the BIBLE to sell their product... There are scriptures on the bottles... But they don't really tell you much about the product itself.

This is the worst gimmick I have ever seen! And I'm rather upset!

Here's the webpage... http://scriptures.cc/

  • MPO is that it is offensive to sell anything that relates to God.


    God is not for sale - even if they are just using His Name or His Word.

  • they are just like any other "Christian Business" using the fact that they are a Christian business to promote their product.

    The company is named Scriptures... makes total sense to me to put a scripture on the bottles. If the company was called "Rose" you'd expect to see a rose on the bottles right? so what are you upset about?

  • They aren't the only ones. Uncle Ray's used to have verses on all their bags of chips. My former employer marketed themselves as a Christian company, and they were part of a whole association of businesses that do the same. They all use it as a selling point.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it. If you don't like the product or the idea, then don't purchase it.

    Herbal Essences has a Q & A on their bottles. To get the answer you have to have the other bottle. Who cares?

  • forever 21 has on the bottom of the bags a scripture of john. that he so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. i think that is the verse. although it just says the john and verse.

  • It is a home-based Christian business, and I don't see anything wrong with it. Why are you upset about it? You're buying a PRODUCT, and the Bible Verse is free...LOL. Don't buy it if you don't agree with it.
