zombies, the walking dead, and disciples

“Zombie Disciples” (by nakedpastor David Hayward)

Zombies are all the same. The walking dead are all alike. Here Jesus sends out the disciples to convert everyone into more of them!

The world around us applies incredible pressure to conform. To be the same as everyone else. Sure you can have your unique traits, but only if they don’t matter. The masses. The horde.

One of the things I appreciate about our online community is the amazing diversity of people there. We’ve all been like zombies some time or another. But like the delightful movie Warm Bodies, we were dead but we’re getting warmer! Come join us!

    I’m still waiting for someone to make the horror movie “Zombie Jesus”.

    It would probably have to happen overseas in a country without a predominant Christian super-majority. It would be a hoot, though.

    P.S. Some say Lich may be a more accurate description for those that want to dress up for Halloween.

    Egg on my face. After a quick search, I see that a “short” of “Zombie Jesus” has already been made. See the trailer.

    The alternative? If one is not to be like the world / the hordes / the masses, neither to be like the disciples??

    I’m not sure what I think of Jesus portrayed as a Zombie, but I do know what it is like to have been a Zombie disciple. In my experience they are not Jesus’ disciples they are disciples of some Guru…Oops I mean Pastor.

    David, you did not need to explain this cartoon. It was evident the moment I saw it; the entire gestalt of the message flowed out in an instant and I must say–I laughed out loud.
    This might be your best cartoon ever!

    Brian: Look, you’ve got it all wrong! You don’t need to follow me…
    You’ve got to think for yourselves! You’re all individuals!
    Crowd: Yes! We’re all individuals!
    Brian: You’re all different!
    Crowd: Yes! We’re all different!
    Man: I’m not.
    Crowd: Shhh!
