We've discussed the use of sacramentals and objects that remind us to keep the faith quite often. There are those that we love.
Those that we don't love.
and many that are just a matter of taste.
I don't much care for football Jesus and Jesus sports statues. Many people do. It bothers me, for one thing, that He's taking sides. And if you think this is okay, how about when we add the Crown of Thorns?
That said, I would always rather err on the side of "whatever floats your boat" when it comes to what calls to people. Don't fix it if it isn't broken. If it's working for you, go with it.
But Banana Jesus?
That is a black spot on a banana, not a message from God. No.
And Peanut Butter and Banana Jesus? No. No. No. Somebody call Elvis.
In keeping with our sense of compassion, I can only hope this person lovingly fashioned this food sculpture and thought of the words of Our Savior while doing so. A fleeting hope. Because next, you have to either eat that Jesus, or throw Him away. Neither option works for me.
I suppose when the banana darkens in the air, it will actually look more like Jesus than Vincent Van Gogh or Kirk Douglas playing Vincent Van Gogh in "Lust for Life".
