A wildly famous pastor recently said, I couldn't worship a God who I could beat up. I wonder if this pastor thinks Jesus opened up beer cans with his teeth and drove a V8 truck with exposed chest hair. Why? Because he's the epitome of manliness and expects Jesus to have been the same way.
This got me thinking. If we created an image of God who is like us, this is totemic theology and a slippery slope.
So, what does Jesus look like to you? How do you envision Jesus to have been?
A vegetarian with soft hands who loved children?
A liberal who served up wine when the party got dull?
A beefy leader who overthrew tables to lay the smack down on haters?
What does Jesus look like to you and why?
