Lightening Strikes a Jesus Statue

If you have not heard or read about the incident of the "King of Kings Jesus" statue getting struck down by lightening, read it here

Now, there are a lot of anti-Christians who are having a field day with this. But here is the brief, and simple truth - God never has, nor never will, want any statue erected of himself, for himself. There are so many verses from the Word of God that deal with this issue, here is just one:

Psalm 97:6-7 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. (7) Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

If you think that God is not in the idol/statue taking down business, then maybe you should read 1 Samuel chapter 5. What happened the other day is nothing new, it has been happening since the times of the Old Testament. What we have witnessed is Old Testament actions being played out right before our eyes.

"... nicknamed Touchdown Jesus because of the way the arms were raised..." And we wonder why God doesn't want images made of His holy self!
