Making Jesus 'In Our Own Image'by AnonymousSometimes it is best if we limit our comments.This is one of those times. If we let you know just how disgusted we are with these figurines we'd end up committing a mortal sin and we're not even Catholic. Here's all we'll say on the matter.These figurines are available for purchase thanks to the marketing efforts of a company called "Fishermen, Inc.". This clever company has made it possible for you to pick and choose the Jesus that best fits your personal tastes and hobbies. The idea here is to make a Jesus in your own image. (Isn't that the very definition of an idol?)We're still waiting for them to make a Jesus that is appealing to middle-aged, over-weight, balding, couch potatoes. That's a Jesus that many of us could REALLY relate with.http://crosebrough.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/04/27/golongjesus.jpgCheck out the Whole collection of Filthhttp://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd2VhcmVmaXNoZXJtZW4uY29tLw==http://crosebrough.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/04/27/homelessjesus.jpg
Judgement is coming on a nation that does such things in "abundance". These things should burden us to pray for God's mercy on our nation and the church.
