Muscular Christianity?

badassjesus.jpg

Never let it be said I won’t offend an entire religion just for a cheap joke. But anyway… Christianists are busy reinterpreting the historical novel known as ‘The Bible’ to reshape Jesus from a revolutionary who threw the money lenders out to a Rambo-esque warrior to lead their crusade. Eejits.

Many rebel leaders have been tortured to death, or assassinated by the state. At Blairwatch today they post up Martin Luther King’s A Time to Break Silence. Better for you than chocolate eggs. For my part I shall quote one of my own personal heroes (you thought I was going for a personal jesus/depeche mode joke there, go on admit it you did. Ok I almost was, but I demurred at the last second) Kurt Vonnegut-

“Take Care of the People, and God Almighty Will Take Care of Himself.”

Peace.

    Jesus looks like the Governor of California.
    Does he also have a German accent?

  7. RickB Says:

    Hey thanks for stopping by and commenting.
    Well given where he allegedly grew up probably more a hebrew tinged Palestinian I would surmise, although he has appeared in quite a few movies so he has that in common.

    Why is it that the lyrics of I Will Survive just popped into my mind when I saw the pic?

    I love the painting. It symbolizes the strength that the spirit of Jesus posessed and the strength that he gives to those who believe in him. However aside from the painting I must address your statement “Christians are busy reinterpreting the historical novel known as ‘The Bible’ to reshape Jesus from a revolutionary who threw the money lenders out to a Rambo-esque warrior to lead their crusade.” First of all The Bible is not a novel it’s the word of God. Second, Jesus is both a revolutionary and a warrior who will lead his followers in a war that will be the final war before we his follwers/soldiers follow him into paradise. For those of you who don’t believe I will pray for you. For it is easier to have faith in nothing and mock those who have faith in that which is not seen then it is to believe in something that is of a power that no man could ever achieve. God bless all of you.

      So spoke the pharisee. So confident that HIS interpretation of scripture is the right one. BTW, notice the inherent contradiction in “Emperor of Love”, I didn’t think so.

    “Take Care of the People, and God Almighty Will Take Care of Himself.”

    HAHAHAHA Kurt probably doesn’t realize how profound of a statement he is making. Jesus does desire for people to be cared for. When someone helps any other it is as if they are helping Jesus Christ himself. By taking care of others God is pleased greatly!!! Read Matthew 25:34-40. Be blessed!

    34″Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

    37″Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40″The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
