Oh fabulous...

From the man who brought us the world famous infamous banana argument, comes the latest foible...Because the Noah's Ark story is so much more believable an explanation as to WHY we find fossilized shells at the top of high mountains! Right Ray?

Why we need The Onion!

This wouldn't be funny if there weren't people who REALLY feel this way!

taken from the Onion

Capitalism + The Bible = Big $$$

Who says that you can't be a Christ-follower and a successful entrepreneur!

That's right folks you too can experience the the scent of "His Essence" for the bargain basement price of $19.95 + shipping and handling!

From the website:

The Company

His EssenceTM is a South Dakota company inspired by Psalm 45:8 - "All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia..." The Bible verse refers to the garments of the Messiah when He returns. We carefully combine these fragrances and the result is a scent, which serves as a reminder of His Presence.

The Product

The first product using this formula was a 14-ounce jar candle. The original candle was manufactured by Woodbridge Candle Company in Freeman, South Dakota. Beginning in June 2006 the Acadian Candle Company of Bloomington, MN became the official developer and manufacturer for His EssencesTM candles.
In February 2007 His EssenceTM introduced two new candle lines:

*Resurrection, inspired by John 19:39-40, "Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about 75 pounds. Taking Jesus' body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen."

*Servanthood, inspired by John 12:3, "Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume."

Retailers have remarked about the high quality of the candle, noting its even burn and scent throw characteristics. It burns for 80 to 100 hours and emits a pleasant and gentle fragrance.

The People

Bob and Karen Tosterud live in rural Burbank, South Dakota. This idea was all Karen's, and being married to a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of South Dakota, it was natural to turn the idea into a business.

Well I'm sold! I going to order one of these right now!

Seriously! I am ordering one! I have to know what it smells like to be in His presence!
