Jesus is Coming Soon…And He’s British!!!

Hillsong Jesus is coming to a theater near you in February

There is yet another movie about Jesus coming soon. Unlike The Passion, in this movie a Portuguese man, portrays an White-Israeli man, while speaking English with an aristocratic British accent. I love that we’re trying to accurately portray the life of Christ! All of us can agree that a British accent ups the ante on quality film-making.

If you know me in the slightest, you know that I hate the archetypal image known as Jesus. Some of us call it White Jesus, and to others, it’s just plain old Jesus – but I can’t stand it either way. This isn’t a race thing; because, I’m not a fan of Black Jesus either. I am wholeheartedly against all artistic/actor portrayals of, or artistic license taken with, the mightiest man of history and eternity. We had a giant statue of a man in a robe, known as “Touchdown Jesus” in town. When I heard that it burned down, after being struck by lightning, I rejoiced with timbrel and dance. May all idols face the same demise!

There’s nothing wrong with it, as long as you don’t over-post on social media (especially if you’re determined to spend more time in the gym…no more #gymflow posts, leave those in 2013). This is my resolution. Like millions of other Americans, I’m returning to my blog. If you do a quick scroll down, you’ll see my last post was a whole two years ago – in 2011! I had a strong urge to start a whole new blog and leave this one drop lower and lower in Google search pages. It’s pretty embarrassing, my long absence. I mean, It’s not like I’ve been locked up or anything.
