Can you Imagine this?
You won't believe what is going on!
Along a West Lubbock, Texas Highway, there is a billboard baring a picture of a Man, portraying Jesus. He has his arms stretched out, wearing a crown of thorns and has tattoos all over his body. It is an advertisement for this new website called Jesustattoo.org.
Some of the words that is tattooed on him are: Outkast, Addicted, Faithless, and Jealous.
This is supposed to be symbolic of how the Lord will bare all of our sins and worries and take them upon himself. The website is said, to be trying to bring people closer to God. If you want to see the picture, log on to Yahoo.com and if it doesn't automatically come up, just type in Jesus tattoo.
This billboard has got a serious dialogue going. People are talking about this billboard. They are talking about what they think it means and how they like or dislike it. Many people feel that it is disrespectful to the Lord. They feel that it is deragotory! While others feel, that it is a powerful message to bring people to Christ. That it is a visual of how The Lord will indeed take our own sins and concerns and bare them upon himself.
I don't know how I feel about it. I hope that it's not blasphemous, but I think that it is. I surely hope that these people know what they are doing. And Lord please forgive me, but I seriously don't think that this is the right thing. I know that the people behind this website is happy with the talk that this billboard has stirred. I am sure that this is exactly what they wanted. Because now, people are going to be talking about this for a while. They are going to go and log on. They've got to see what this website is about and what it has to say.
This was their mission, to get people talking. And they've outdone themselves. The news has done a piece on it and now, it has entered the social media freeway! I wonder what you all think about it. If you haven't seen it, please go and check it out. And if you have seen it, please feel free to comment and let me know what you think. I would love to read the opinions of you all.
