Jesus getting dragged to church by God and pushed by the Holy Ghost.

There is so much theologically and historically questionable about this cartoon. But there is also so much theologically and historically interesting about it too.

Perhaps it will bring you a smile this Saturday. Have a good one!

    Ha! He didn’t start what we have now.

    Love it! I have always pictured Jesus as an adult, but showing him as a tantruming child just made me smile today.

    As an adult, I went to church for a dozen reasons, and most often because it did NOT help me, but I thought it would help others. It was like the church institution was fertilizer for my garden, and I just keep pouring it on the lawn every week… for a time, everything turned lovely green… and then, it was over-fertilized, and slowly toxically killed off me and the others. That was long ago.

    Now, I see the church institution as just one minor tool in my garage for gardening. There is a time and place for me using it for a good result, and then it is time to put it back and away for a season. There are so many other tools in that garage, and I need to be wise when and how much I use each one.

    Much love in Christ always and unconditionally; Caryn

    Wow! You are really opening up the can with that one. Lol. So much food for thought in that simple cartoon. Get ready for fallout.

  • I eat fallout for breakfast 😉 Thanks Warza.
