In a three-word plug for a faith-based apparel company, Candace Cameron Bure sparked a significant show of social media support for the equally concise message emblazoned on the shirt she wore.
As co-host of ABC’s The View, the outspoken Christian has ruffled a few feathers with her opinions on faith, culture and politics. The boiled-down, modern-day translation of John 3:16’s salvation message, however, earned nearly universal approval from her Facebook fans.
“Awesome shirt,” one supporter responded. “God bless you and your family. Thank you for being a great example for people to follow.”
Another Facebook user commented that she had seen a similar shirt before, noting both it and its pint-sized wearer were quickly the topic of conversation.
“There was a baby in our church nursery this past Sunday who had that on his shirt!” she replied. “We were just cracking up at it. Especially since he was such a serious little man.”
One fan went a step further, sharing a photo of her own grandson in a T-shirt bearing the “Jesus Saves Bro” motto.
Several links to the company, Imperishable Clothing, were also included among the comments. Describing its own mission, the company states on its website that it is “just a small group of folks really stoked about Jesus.”
The company’s stated mission “is to start a Jesus saves, bro conversation with each shirt that we print!”
