If a cross did not kill Jesus

The USA is covered with crosses – on buildings, necklaces, signs, and statues.  Because of that we often just see them as a sign of Christianity and forget that they were merely a common execution tool in the ancient Roman empire.

But what if Jesus had been born in a different time and a different place: it would not have been a wooden cross that killed him.

Or what if Jesus had been born in the 30’s, 40’s or 50’s and killed by electric chair.  As you see below, others have thought about this too. Boy, that would hurt to roll over on at night and lay on the electric chair on your chest.  And “crossing” yourself when entering a Catholic church would have been a long drawn out process.  It takes time to sketch an electric chair.

But if Jesus had been born in the 1960s then he would have been executed in the 2000s and the method would most likely have been injection.  Syringe necklaces would be a little dangerous but syringes on steeples might look cool.

So maybe that is why God, in all his insight, let us kill his son in 28 a.d.  Crosses are the best execution tool for jewelry and such.  What amazing planning !  Yahweh always does it well.

When Luck is Good !

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “When Luck is Good !“, posted with vodpod

There are lots of misfortune videos out there, so it was nice to find this GOOD LUCK video which put a smile on my face. We all take credit for luck in our lives. We take credit for our brilliance, our financial success, our career success or our love success. But due to the butterfly effect, much more is out of our control than we can imagine — not that it is in the Big Daddy’s control either (cause there ain’t one!).

Relax when luck is bad, smile when it is good. And always prepare so as to make a welcome home for fortune !

Hunchback Dwarfs & Cursing Kids

Leviticus says we should kill these folks: 20: 9 (parent curser),13(homo), 10(adulterous), 27(fortune tellers). And these folks can’t be priests: 21:20 (hunchbacks or dwarfs)
