why would anyone put Jesus on playing carsd? bad choice
We gave the deck to my mother and she loved them. She’s not a big card player, but she likes to carry them with her when she takes walks and read the bible verses.

This is a very pretty deck. I can’t believe anyone whould think it is bad to put information about Jesus on a pack of cards.I love the bible verses and plan to use it as part of our bible study that will include playing a game with them.
David Burks –
I think putting Jesus and biblical references on a deck of playing cards is a brilliant idea. Great way to bring your faith in to a game of cards and inspire wholesome conversation and even witness if you are playing with non-christians.
Only possible way one could say this is a bad choice would be if you thought playing cards was a sin and if that is the case I have to wonder why you are on a playing card selling site in the first place.
