Jesus On Toast

You may know about this already, but it’s still worth pointing out.  Someone has invented a toaster that burns the image of Christ onto your daily bread.

And that toaster is for sale.  How amazing is this world?

Check it out and remember me at Christmastime.  No, I don’t actually own one of these yet.

Men Cannot Become Angels

When I see questions on Ask.com and Yahoo answers about how people can become angels, I give my forehead a smack.  I’m tired of smacking my forehead.  It hurts.  So let me just say that people cannot become angels and angels cannot become people.  I know, it would make a sweet movie, but that’s just not how God designed things.  Jesus says in

John 3:6

“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”

Christian Kitsch: Bible Alarm Clock

I can’t remember where I bought this Holy Bible alarm clock or I would tell you.  I’ve had it for years.  It makes me laugh out loud every time I use it.  It opens backwards, like the Jewish Torah.  I’m pretty sure it was made in China.  When it goes off, it lights up and plays the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s Messiah at full blast.  This is the LOUDEST alarm clock I have ever owned.  There is no way to turn it down.  I use it when I absolutely, positively, must get up.

Angels in the Bible: Jesus and His Legions

Jesus avoids a smackdown as the Roman soldiers grab Him.  He says, in

Matthew 26:53

“Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?”

Angels are God’s army.  They can protect Him and they can fight for Him as He wills.  They can also protect us and fight for us as He wills.

Angels in the Bible: Guardian Angels for Children

Jesus mentioned guardian angels when talking about children.

Matthew 18:10

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.”

This tells me that guardian angels are connected to God even while they are protecting us.  Isn’t that comforting?

Jesus Ashtray

Let me first say that I don’t smoke.  That didn’t stop me from buying this completely awesome ashtray.

Jesus Hates It When You Smoke

Jesus is looking miserable in His crown of thorns and the words “Jesus Hates It When You Smoke” are printed around His precious head.  How can anyone pick up a cigarette when faced with this?

I do admit that I have a soft spot for what I call Christian kitsch.  I find it endlessly amusing so I’ll be talking about more nuggets of gold like this as I come across it.
