has your pet Jesus been to obedience school?

Do you think you have the authority or privilege to jerk Jesus around? Some do.

The way some people talk about going around healing people and even raising people from the dead on command gives me the impression that they are God and Jesus is their servant. This arrogant gets tiring.

So I thought I’d draw a cartoon that depicts Jesus as our pet who’s been to obedience school.

We wish.

    I don’t think arrogant is the right word. I think devious is better.

    Yes! Well, I think quite a lot of the successful “miracles” could be achieved using psychological manipulation, i.e. “we should be healed, otherwise we lost faith” complex. I was curious about that question once when I was watching a healing session: can Jesus really be told what to do, hereby suggesting that, somehow, the people doing the “healings” control God. I think God can work in wonderful ways in people’s lives, however everything should be tested.
