“Jesus Gets Saved” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


I thought it was funny imagining the Jesus we read about in the gospels sitting in on a sermon at one of our churches and that he hears about this Jesus who is totally different than the Jesus he’s heard about… himself!… that he feels the need to get saved just in case… even to avoid the hell this Jesus will throw him into if he doesn’t!

(Hey… no longer sure about the existence of hell… or even Jesus??? Do not fear. Come and join others who are talking through this with others at the table of  The Lasting Supper!)

    Too true!! People seem to derive the Jesus they need for power, status, and peer approval:
    the Angry Jesus,
    the Hating Jesus,
    the I Only Side With American Republicans Jesus,
    the Avoid the Sinner Jesus, and the list goes on…

    Will the real Jesus please stand up?

    “Jesus is a [insert ideology, political persuasion etc. here]”

    I suppose Jesus’ baptism confused John in a similar way.
