The True Christian™ Art Critic - Assess your Favorite Jesus Pictures to Avoid HELL
 
Fellow True Believers™! We often emphasize our writings and essays with appropriate visual material. Many historical studies, our research on creation science and parenting benefit from well-placed artwork that helps the heathen and our children to unravel the Godly message. And what could be more fun than seeing a nice vision of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior in a birthday thread!

All this is fun and useful - but perilous if we are careless. When one views a nice picture, admires its craftsmanship and the lovely face of Jesus, it is not always easy to notice the subtle messages that are actually from SATAN: the false Christian teachings, the contradictions with the literal interpretation of the Bible, the possible ways to peril and damnation! I am not blaming anyone in particular here, as I myself have been using these images that can be found in the Interwebs quite often.

Due to all this, I suggest that we discuss and assess Jesus imagery together if we are in doubt. Many pieces of nice artwork can lead the unsuspecting mind of women and unsaved children to HELL unless we point out the discrepancies, the demonic aspects of an apparently innocent picture. The features to assess would, in my honest and unbiased opinion, include several aspects as follows:
1. Craftsmanship and general quality
2. Compatibility with the Bible
3. Usefulness in a True Christian™ message
4. Potential risks of the image
I have here some examples. Take THIS picture, for instance:
http://eborg3.com/Graphics/Jesus/Jes...-Heaven-12.jpghttp://www.goodsalt.com/view/jesus-w...-pppas0002.jpg

What a disgusting image.
1. Beautiful craftsmanship, the brushstrokes and powerful and the composition exquisite.
2. Totally and irrevocably incompatible with the Bible! This is a picture of Heaven, for God's sake. Dogs are WITHOUT (Revelation 22:15), and people need to repent and be baptized to be saved (Acts 2:38). I think that it is totally improbable that the children in the picture would be old enough to be able to repent. Lots of rod will have to administered on them before it is feasible (Proverbs 22:15).
3. Useless for the True Christian™ masses but can be used as a warning message at the highest levels of pastoral and Biblical study.
4. Many risks: gives unsaved children the false message that Jesus loves them!

Second example:
http://www.artsyhome.com/goodthumb.p...pg&w=570&h=427

1. Again, beautiful technical skills of the artist. Boldly modern composition but pleasing to the eye.
2. Much better Biblically. Jesus the mighty Savior on the cross and nice reference to Isaiah 11:6 and John 10:9. I'd say a tentative PASS for this image.
3. Can be used with relative safety.
4. Minor risks only, such as children asking why Jesus is blue on the cross.

And a final example:
http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/wp-c...05/dog_adp.png

1. Mediocre craftsmanship, a kind of a collage of painting and a photograph but that's what these modernists seem to like. I'll let it pass.
2. Biblically sound. When Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:17) comes, soulless animals are left behind as it should be (Revelation 22:15).
3. Useful. This teaches women and children that animals have no souls, no feelings. They are tools to be used, not something you love.
4. Not many risks in this one. Can cause whining and protests from children but that can always be fixed (Proverbs 22:15).

There you have it. There is great potential for True Christian™ art criticism (this service could also be provided with a suitable cost). When in doubt about a picture's piousness, it usually isn't. If you still want to use it, you can ask your Brethren. If and when you find something truly rousing or truly devious, you can post it here as an example or as a warning for fellow Believers™.


Yours in Christ,

Elmer :bye:

There are many symbols in Renaissance and Byzantine art that are quite recognisable. Not all of these symbols relate purely to the Bible, but have become traditional in Christian art. For instance, animals:

Wolf - symbolizes compassion and mercy. The wolf was used as the emblem for many early Saints including St. Francis of Assisi who is often shown with a wolf .
Ermine - symbolizes truth, fidelity, mischief making. Often associated with the aristocracy or royalty.
White Horse - a symbol of victory, conquest, goodness and invincibility. "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. " -- Revelation 19:11
The ape symbolizes a lustful soul filled with sinful thoughts.
Cat - symbolizes shrewdness, treachery, trickery and watchfulness. Often associated with Satan, witchcraft or sorcery.
Winged ox - represents Luke the Evangelist, one of the four evangelist.
Ox - symbolizes strength, power, humility "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" Matt. 11:28
The Vulture epitomized greed, corruption and ruthless power.
The singing robin symbolizes deliverance from evil and God's holy mercy. A caged robin signifies removal from Gods holy grace.
Otters emblem of Saint Cuthbert, an Anglo-Saxon monk and hermit. He was a great animal lover who enacted the first laws to protect wildlife. Otters became his emblem after they rescued him from the drowning.
The Eagle is a symbol of Christ and of regeneration by baptism and also represents John the Evangelist, one of the four Evangelist. The eagle also the symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Winged lion - represents Mark the Evangelist, one of the four evangelist.
lion - a symbol of power, majesty, wisdom, tyranny, viciousness, dignity, and leadership. The lion represents both Jesus Christ as well as Satan, a wise king or a tyrant.
Camel emblem of Egyptian Saint Mennas. He was martyred by being thrown into a fire pit when he openly declared his Christian faith.
lamb - symbolizes humility, peace, and innocence. The lamb represents Christ as the Lamb, and also Christians as the flock.
Dolphin - sign of the resurrection and symbolizes Christ guiding Christians to heaven.
Goat - symbol of Satan. Satan is often depicted as a horned and hoofed goat-like creature.
Unicorn, a symbol of purity, harmony, the arrival of Spring. Since the Middle Ages the unicorn was a symbol of chastity and innocence, it was believed that a unicorn could only be tamed by a virgin's gentle stroke.
Pig - symbolizes material desires, excess and self-indulgence. The pig is also the emblem of Saint Antony of Egypt
Dog - a symbol of loyalty, openness, dependability and fidelity
Cow emblem of St Perpetua who was gored to death by an enraged cow in the a 3rd-century when she was thrown in the arena of Carthage.
Bull emblem of Thomas Aquinas
Snake - symbolizes Satan; the presence of evil, fall of man, devil
A snake brazenly slithering across the middle of a thoroughfare or road - symbolizing the False Prophet leading the way to hell.
A devious serpent peeking out of a basket, urn or pot - a spiritual reminder of Satan's presence in unusual places.
Bear emblem of St. Seraphim of Sarov. During his life as reclusive monk stayed in the forest and fed and befriended many animals including a bear.
Swan symbolizes purity and is also the emblem of Saint Hugh of Lincoln. he was a great animal lover and as well as caretaker to lepers. A swan he befriended fowled him around and kept watch of him as he slept.

This is one of my personal favorites. I have a framed print of it hanging in the foyer, as a matter of fact.

1. The masterful combination of fine brush strokes and dynamic juxtaposition of light and shadow really make The Savior POP!! However, His hair and eyes should have been painted a few shades blonder and bluer, respectively.

2. Jesus is a bad-@$$. He is known to have verbally and physically assaulted sinners and idiots, to have vandalized private property, to have destroyed lesser life forms in a fit of rage and to have ordered His disciples to steal livestock. All justifiable acts, for He is God. See Matthew 21 for some examples.

3. The message here is that Christ is sick of taking crap off of sinners. This should lay to rest any fluffy-bunny notions of a kindly, all-loving Jesus. If you you don't get right with Him ASAP, you'll get the ultimate brush-off!

4. There is no risk here. This is our Lord in His Natural Glory...if atheists, sinners and false- Christians don't like it, they can go to hell!

Now, I won't profess myself to be a culture vulture of any kind, in fact, I'm just a regular ol' Philistine, so any art experts here, enlighten me. :)

I stumbled across this heart-warming depiction of our Savior in what would be an accurate vision of Him walking among us. In fact, I'll bet you could spot Him at any outback gas station here in the Good Ol' USA! ;)

http://dwspodcast.com/wp-content/upl...rado_f_002.jpg

1. It looks pretty good to me! I take it this is what they call Impressionism, as it gives a full impression of the Lord's Blessed Nature. :innocent:
2. He uncannily evokes Psalm 45:2 in the fairness of His sweet Looks, any TC lady would swoon upon seeing this painting, and mistake it for their SAVIOR'S Return!
3. The message of this painting is that Our Lord is a Good American Boy at heart and He would be so if spotted today!
4. The tattoo might suggest Jesus having gang-ties.

My oh my.

Landroverians discussing 'art' is a bit like a bag full of hungry Gerbils debating the whereabouts of dark matter in competing Latvian dialects.

Christian iconography in art is a fascinating and complex topic that must be prefaced with a fundamental understanding of the transition from paganism to Christianity in the traditional lands of the Mediterranean from the time of Constantine up through the Renaissance.

Within this context one can start to trace both the emergence of new materials and techniques in addition to the enlightened encouragement of The Holy Roman Church which drove both the development of Religious art and Music.

As I am certain there are not enough really small words to get any of this across to the present audience, I would suggest the locals stick with the sparkle and Unicorn airbrushing styles popular with taste-challeneged decorators all over middle America.

Talk like this reminds of the the Baptwit tourist who, while visiting The Sistine Chapel, told his wife that he and his brother could have painted the entire ceiling in just a few days with a roller and a bakers scaffold. This is why you folks cannot have nice things.

Mr. Lombardo,

While I mostly agree with your analysis, I would like to add an important point. I certainly support your unwritten notion that Jesus our Savior as God is ABOVE the Biblical commandments. Our children, however, are not. Thus, it would be beneficial if not altogether necessary to remind fellow art-lovers of...

...Leviticus 19:28 - Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I [am] the LORD.

Jesus can do what He wants, perhaps have tattoos even, but we cannot. Perhaps the viewing of this image of yours should be restricted to saved True Christian™ men?

However, your post emphasizes the need to discuss art in an unbiased, True Christian™ manner.


Yours in Christ,

Elmer:bye:

Oh, dear. It's the spokesperson of the extremely elitist episcopate, the self-nominated jack-off of all trades...:wacko: oh, how the Sixteenth Chapel would benefit from a crew of sturdy young True Christian™ men and some white paint. A Tabula rasa, a new beginning for the papist imagery. And that would leave only the first fifteen chapels to be redecorated. For cat licks, as our papist impostor explains, the value of art is in Tradition (who could have guessed :D?), money, pomp and circumstance. Very well, an analysis:

http://www.sinj.com/14/images/michel...-judgement.jpg
Mary-worship. Not Biblical. Never mind the technique. It's the content that matters. And destroys any chance of the above being great art. :angry:

Deuteronomy 29:17
And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them.

Interesting compilation, Mr. Farmer. I'm curious why you've chosen to reference a pagan source (St Perpetua?). The Catholic church, being the Whore of Babylon, is rich with pagan references to the Triune God (or should I say, the Quatrune God, as they incorporate Mary as one of the "Four Persons of God").

In any case, I wouldn't trust their references simply for the fact you can catch Homosexuality from Catholics. They gladly open the (back) door to Gay Demon Infestation through their art. You'll notice Michelangelo, Gay, painted their most important piece using only naked men as inspiration. I show these here only because we are protected from such demons with our JesOS supernaturally protected software, lovingly created by Pastor Isaac Peters and the Holy Ghost Himself.

Indeed Mrs Etheldreda. My post was pre-empting that of the papist - pointing out that much religious iconography isn't Christian at all, but pagan and papist, with no Biblical basis.

That probably explains why Brother Elmer finds so many Biblically errant works of art - they must be inspired by the ignorant papists who are as Biblically clueless as the Methodists.

Exactly. This one for instance that shows dogs in Heaven, where the papists regard dogs as a symbol of loyalty, openness, dependability and fidelity. Completely Biblically incorrect and therefore heretical, but the papists wouldn't understand that.

That picture is wrong in SO many ways: the filthy dog, the puppies (is the artist under the impression that dogs not only go to Heaven, but also breed there?) the children, the niglet. But worst of all is the depiction of Jesus, who looks nothing like Our Beloved Savior but very like Jeremy Irons playing a Jesuit priest in that abominable papist movie, The Mission.

Everything that was said about this image is true, yet there is at least one good thing about it: :jesus-fancy: is surrounded by Godly White girls, while the non-white boy keeps his distance from the :lord-fancy:. I'm sure the dog is there to protect :jesus-fancy: just in case the boy goes on drugs and decides to attack Him. In fact, :jesus-fancy: is missing a gun on this picture, to be able to stand his ground and protect Himself and these innocent White girls. Girls understand that :jesus-fancy: is their only Savior from the wild savage, which is why they cling to Him/stand slightly behind Him, and avoid eye contact with the boy. The boy, in fact, seems to not be looking t the :lord-fancy:, but eying the innocent White girl standing in the back! :fear2:

Yes. Harsha Shah here. I wish to show you my favourite piece of artwork of Jesus.
http://data.whicdn.com/images/856140...d4_h_large.jpg
Yes, it is beautiful. Jesus is walking together with buddha, the holy cow and krishna and there are also statues of indigenous American peoples. The style is naive, I know, but not unlike that of Grandma Moses, a famous American painter. They are happy, they are respecting one another, yes! They are walking to the same direction, I am thinking, to human happiness. They have only a narrow bridge and beyond the bridge is the land of reconciliation of all faiths. And there is no big chasm, only a friendly brook to pass. All together for the common goal. I think jesus would have wanted this. Yes, he certainly would. This is very useful and I have been showing it at school to children who seem to understand it intuitively. Beautiful. Yes.

Re: The True Christian™ Art Critic - Assess your Favorite Jesus Pictures to Avoid HELL
 
That obese booda is about to shove Jesus (and the cow) into the river in an attempt to drown them. Booda is deliberately distracting Jesus in the hope he won't see the bridge or the river. (But booda forgets that Jesus can walk on water)
