Yeah, I know, very sacrilegious, but I’ve been thinking (groan…here we go):
It is amazing how much media play Jesus has been getting over the past couple of weeks. Is it because I am about to become a professional religious guy, or does Jesus seem to be superseding Brittany Spears in television appearances?
You had the highest rated Discovery Channel Show with the Tomb of Jesus, CNN has just spent a full week tracing the steps of Jesus during the Passion Week, and even 920AM, the local sportsradio, was making comments about Holy Week
In so doing have we domesticated Jesus into our Buddy (thanks Dogma for the image)? Worship this morning the sermon focused around the Tomb of Jesus claim and sought to prove why Jesus’ bones were not really found. Isn’t this process merely allowing the media and cultural perspectives to drive the church instead of vice-versa?
