American Idols

by

I once saw a figurine that pictured Jesus in a Heisman pose.  That disturbed me – and greatly.  But, at least that little bit of ceramic did not talk to me.

Talking Jesus nearly vanishes

The toys have sold out at Wal-Mart, and there aren’t many left at Target.com, either

There’s been much written about the scarcity of Nintendo’s Wii this holiday season, but last week Wal-Mart sold out of another popular toy: the Talking Jesus Messenger of Faith doll. The 12-inch doll is made by one2believe of Valencia, Calif., which also sells Nativity scenes and other Bible action figures such as Samson and Goliath Spirit Warriors.

The toy company’s press release says there “were doubters who wondered if a 12-inch tall talking Jesus doll that speaks Bible stories and scripture would sell well.”  (oh, yeah! that is what I would be worried about – al)

Here is the thing… I am disturbed that a Christian (read the story) is making this crap, sorry  – dung, but it really bothers me that there is a RUN ON THESE THINGS!  There is a shortage for goodness sake! 

We are too wealthy by far – wealthy and poor.  Well dressed and naked.  Pleased with ourselves and wretched.  Possessing Lasik enhanced 20/15 vision and blind as mole rats.

 Rev 3:14-21

“And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say,’I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked – 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
 

May God be merciful and knock once again at the door of His Church.
