No offense to Young Earthers, whom I heartily respect when they do their homework, but this icon always makes me think of Answers in Genesis and their obsession with denouncing non-literal portrayals of Noah's Ark. "That's not a sea-worthy vessel! You're spreading
misinformation to the children!"




That's a beautiful icon.  I love how the iconographer shaped the Ark into a house, depicting the Church.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Negative.  I believe Barcelona is the greatest club on earth and proved it earlier this year.

Not only are you a Celtic fan, but you have to ruin what little respect is left by coming out as a Scum fan.

Barcelona have Messi, that's why they won.  ::)

It's okay, when Barca's little Massiah gets injured...you will have...David Villa?  :laugh:

Real Madrid will win La Liga next year.  ;D

I'm a Celtic fan because I'm not a protestant.  :police:

Manchester United, Viking FK, and Sydney FC are my favorite clubs, Celtic comes after that I think.  :P

Yeah, he sucks.

I didin't know that Jarkko Vehninäinen's cartoons has been translated into English. :) He's a Finn and I believe he is also a son of a Pentecostal pastor so he has drawn rather much that kind of biblical cartoons.

A priest I saw had Chinese dragons on his vestments (I don't think there was an intention to put the dragons there, that was just the material they made the vestments from).
