I'm concerned about Jesus's male pattern baldness.

Also, Adam and Eve look like they are kinda making Jesus out to be the third wheel here.
God bless!

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree, LBK.  Jesus in the Garden of Eden is definitely ghastlier than Jesus in the Indian Businessman's Office.  :P

If you look closely, the Indian businessman's lost the deal to Jesus. I wonder what sort of theological or pastoral point the artist is making?  ??? :P

But I won't disagree that the Eden pic reeking of "come hither", complete with tiger (rug) imagery is worse ...  :o :P :P

I don't know, they look like they're getting along fine without him.  If he was there, I imagine they'd want to turn him around like some pious people do with bedroom icons.

It looks like Jesus is trying to catch the Holy Spirit as He flies away in the middle of the guy's sermon.  I wonder was sort of theological interpretation can be extracted from that?

Seems more like He's trying to drive the Holy Spirit away by swatting at Him.

Makes sense. What would the Holy Spirit be doing around Protestants anyway?

He's an intellectual that like to do Shakespeare in the park.  Hey, don't judge.  Some actors do different things before a performance.  He happens to shoot up with Jesus.  jesus has really good veins.

I'm pretty sure it is a sarcastic mockery of those who go on the internet and "fight" for Orthodoxy by posting ranty blog posts. Many religious bloggers (and forumers) seem to have this weird idea that they are fighting for truth and righteousness by flaming people for what they see as incorrect beliefs.
