And Another Thing…

Does he quote Exodus 34:17*?

Yes, it’s true folks. Now your kids can have a talking Jesus to play with along side of their Transformers and Pokemon toys. Be sure and check out the site for the commercial; it’s priceless. I really like that they made sure his robe is pure white (like his skin) and that his hair is neatly combed and conditioned along with his beard, and that he speaks English with an American accent - it shows that high regard for historical accuracy.

 

Why do I feel like this is representative of everything that is wrong with modern Christianity?

*”Do not make cast idols.” (NIV)

    As if God didn’t already “bring the word of God to life”…? Hmmmmm. What do we celebrate on Easter, then?

    Scary, scary.

    Crazy.
    It is definately a symbol of what is wrong with modern Christianity.
    We won’t buy it but like you mentioned children playing with Transformers and Jesus. He is the kung fu Jesus. Or for girls it is no longer Barbie and Ken…Its Barbie and Jesus! :-)

    I’m not sure what to think…let me consult my picture of Jesus on the wall.

    There’s no kitsch like Christian kitsch.

    Have fun while you can, kids, because forty days after you take Jesus out of the box, he’ll be outta here.

  8. odgie says:

    Kathi – It is scary

    Preach – The kung-fu Jesus would need a Satan doll for him to lay a righteous smackdown upon

    Dave – Please, let us know what your Jesus picture says

    Steve- truer words were never spoken

    Frank – LOL!

    I don’t care if it rains or freezes
    Long as I got my Plastic Jesus
    Sitting on the dashboard of my car

    Comes in colors pink and pleasant
    Glows in the dark ’cause it’s iridescent
    Take him with you when you travel far

    Thank you Paul Newman!

  10. odgie says:

    Kelly – Ah yes…”Cool Hand Luke”

  11. Katherine says:

    Wow. I didn’t know Han Solo knew that much scripture, but why does he think he’s Jesus? ;)

    Where DO you find these things?!?!?

  12. odgie says:

    Katherine – I never reveal my sources
