I don't think this cartoon is a fair portrayal of Jesus. I don't think the words of Jesus lend themselves to this interpretation. However, I think this is the Jesus of the fineprint. As I stated in an earlier post, if you delve into the "What We Believe" portion of most church websites, this is the Jesus you will find. The church may spend their Sunday morning preaching about grace and love, but this is the Jesus you find waiting for you when all of the theological dust settles.
I do not think the fineprint Jesus is the Jesus most people attending church want, but he is the medieval carryover they feel compelled to accept.
This excellent cartoon was created by David Hayward a.k.a. the NakedPastor.
