I really like Jim’s post today http://lordibelievehelpmyunbelief.blogspot.com/2008/03/what-does-jesus-look-like-to-you.html on how we “see” Jesus.
One of the images he posted is considered the anthropologically correct one, but I’m partial to the “Sacred Heart” image with the winking Jesus.
Or this image…
Gee, Jesus, I want a new car! (thump) and there’s his instant agreement. See, I named it, claimed it and soon I’ll look out in the driveway and there my shiny new car will be, I just know it.
I have the faith that moves Mazdas.
Read the ad for Bobblehead Jesus:
“The Jesus Bobble Head is a plastic bobble-headed tribute to a remarkable man. Humbly dressed in common robes, Jesus stands 7-1/2″ tall and offers a gesture of blessing with his hand. Put him on your dashboard and he just might inspire you to exercise patience and forgiveness on the highway. Comes in a window box with fascinating Jesus quotes and history.”
Who says you can’t put God in a box? That’s if you accept the Divinity of Jesus as I do.
Not everyone does.
But wait, there’s more…
Also available – Jesus Action Figure
“Everyone has a different take on Jesus. Muslims and Jews saw him as a prophet; Buddhists say he was enlightened; Hindus consider him an avatar (the incarnation of a deity in human form) while Christians hail him as the Son of God. But, wherever your theological compass points, you will agree that this is the coolest action figure since G.I. Joe. Each hard plastic Jesus Action Figure stands 5″ tall with poseable arms to reach toward the heavens and wheels in his base for smooth gliding action. Comes in our illustrated package with biblical quotes on the back.”
Wow, I want this for my kids, too!
They wouldn’t buy it if I pointed at a bum and said “Look kids, there goes Jesus!”
They need a better Jesus image than “the least of these…”
