“You are evil. There is no hope. Thank you.” Can I just say that I’m real glad that our God is not even close to this representation of Jesus. These videos show us the exact opposite of who our God is and how He thinks of us. It’s encouraging to watch these. If Jesus really kept a record of our wrongs and held it against us, would this thing we call grace exist? No. If Jesus talked down to his followers like that, would anyone follow him? No. If Jesus didn’t have time to talk to us because he was thinking of more important things…heavenly things, why would we want a relationship with him? I can tell you that I wouldn’t want to hang out with that type of person. This Jesus was flat out rude but our Jesus thankfully is not. He is the most loving, gracious, merciful, caring, thoughtful, powerful, holy…and the list goes on and on.
The man portrayed on this video is the equivalent of Jesus’s rebellious evil twin. First off, Jesus was not white. He probably didn’t have a neatly kept beard. He didn’t wear white all the time. And He wasn’t and isn’t a jerk! Our Jesus is none of these things and I am oh so grateful. I have talked about this before in a previous post. We have a skewed view of who Jesus is because of the church and society.
These videos are funny and satirical but they do a great job of showing us what Jesus is not and how we sometimes perceive that man we call the Son of God. I appreciate the work that the Vintage21 Church put in to all four videos. If you get a chance, you should check them out.
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
