IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS


Why the "Christian world" is celebrating Christmas:

St. Luke, Chapter 18,18-23:

And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, honour thy father and thy mother.

And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.


Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.


And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

Delightful--of course there are some who would not get the point or who would take offfense in a very theatrical manner. Who was your model? He's quite good looking.

Lol :-)! This isn't one of my paintings, Will :-), this picture I found recently on an Italian blog!
It's adapted from a typical Italian art print of a Jesus - painting of the 19th century, which you could find in a lot of Italian bedrooms of married couples.

Jesus never spoke about homosexuality just as well he never objected to male love ...

He only spoke about adultery ...

Love and Peace,

Bingo, Spencer, therefore I published this picture ... Christmas should be a time for peace and comtemplation and thinking about those things which Jesus Christ tought ...

I didn't want to tear the pleasure of gifts away from nobody with this post ... to make or to get pleasure is always a good thing, throughout the whole year ... but there is another sense in this post about Jesus Christ ... who was not only a reformer in religious regard but also a "rebel" ... today you could say : His social consciousness was in high geer !
I know you understand, Elmo ...

Love,

Castor
