Diamond Jesus


They really don't read their own book, do they?

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (NIV, Matthew 6:19-21)


  1. The first time I saw one of these (in Vegas, of course), my jaw dropped about down to the floor. I just couldn't imagine a) who would wear one, and b) whose bright idea it was to make one in the first place. I mean... are you kidding me? A diamond bust of Jesus? (The one I saw was set in platinum and had a LOT more diamond chips than the dude above.)

  2. This one is from Fingerhut- the company that sells stuff no one needs at heavily marked up prices and gives credit to absolutely anyone. I could not stop laughing when I saw that.

    Nothing says "the meek shall inherit the earth" like gold and diamonds.

  3. Don't forget Exodus 20 (you know the ten commandments or at least one of the sets of ten):

    4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.


Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?

I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
