"The power of Christ compels you!"

As some here know, I keep a Tumblr called KA-CHING! which is like a commonplace book of images and observations I find compelling. It currently has over 16, 200 entries going back a number of years. One of the elements that has led to the status of Tumblr on the Internet is the ability to, in a simple, frictionless manner, like and/or reblog an item to one's own Tumblr. Some of these reblogs of images can become so popular that they are shared hundreds of thousands of times. My little page is not one of those whose items are regularly picked up like that. A bit too odd and random I think.

So it was a surprise to me when the following image seemed to have gotten out of my little online ghetto and into shares that currently exceed 15,600. A surprise but still in its own way heartening. Maybe Christians are beginning, at long last, to toughen up.

I like it just fine, although a large number of my followers seem to be bronies. If anyone was worthy of being horse whipped, it would be the brony.

The smug, the self-righteous, and the sanctimonious were his foes. The humble were not.


Something in that to ponder upon.

Mikey - Indeed. It's interesting to consider what He might do to the latter-day Pharisees and moneychangers in the Vatican. Or to some of the more egregious of the American televangelist hucksters.

The real reason for all this whipping is the lack of sufficient thing.

Jewel, that you tube link was one of the creepier things I've seen in a while.

Was it a joke? I really couldn't tell.

Not a joke.
