The two views of a “Christian” toothbrush.

The Cynical View:

Now that your kids are almost done polishing off all that “Christian” Easter candy, make sure your kids practice proper oral hygiene by brushing with “Christian” toothbrushes because those pagan, worldly toothbrushes just can’t get to those hard to reach places. What makes these better than worldly toothbrushes? Because the manufacturers of these plastic sticks with bristles on the end smacked a Bible verse* on the toothbrush, that why.

The Optimistic View:

These toothbrushes are useful in removing plaque from the teeth caused by all those sugary candy-coated sermons that the majority of American Christians swallow week after week. How is this done? Because the manufacturers of these plastic sticks with bristles on the end were kind enough to put a Bible verse* on the toothbrush; and in many cases that means these toothbrushes contain more Scripture than many sermons preached on any given Sunday in America.

* Granted, only the reference is printed on the toothbrush (not the actual Scripture) so you still have to look it up on your own . . . that is, if you’re not too busy.

  1. Well, don’t you know? If you use these Christian toothbrushes, the Holy Spirit will protect your teeth from plaque & gingivitis!!! (end sarcasm) On a serious note, I can’t believe that people actually buy this stuff. Next thing you know they’ll put out toilets with Scripture references. I personally have no problem with a shirt that has a Bible verse on it, but that’s where I draw the line.

  2. Guess these toothbrushes are to help us brush up on our scriptures (ouch)!

    But what is happening here is if it sells, use it. Even if you use God to get a fast buck, then do it.

    Wonder what God Himself thinks about all this?

    I wonder.

  3. To bad the Israelites didn’t know about these. Had they stocked up with a supply while in Egypt with God’s law imprinted on them as a reminder – surely they would have only had to deal with plaque and not God’s plague!

    Numbers 11:33
    “And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.”

  4. Well said, and even better wit! It’s funny because it’s true … and that’s sad.

    God bless,
