Bendable, Poseable Jesus

Someone posted this photo of an action figure on Facebook, and I thought that the symbolism was poignant. Lots of people have a “Jesus” who is “bendable” and “poseable” and so he is flexible enough to fit in with – and even serve as a symbol of – their values and worldview.

    How do we find th is out what the historical Jesus really wants?

    Fortunately, James McGrath is there for helping us find this out 😉

      I think a literal reading of The Good Samaritan, along with The Lost Sheep and The Prodigal Son gives us a darn good idea. The ethics enshrined therein are universal, far beyond the bounds of any religion. I wish more people in general, Christians in particular would take these parables to heart. The world would be a better, more peaceful and loving place.

      For the record, my bendable Jesus will be sitting on my menorah, right next to my Buddha. 😉
