Caption Contest #89
Picture found here.
I'll start: How many things are theologically wrong with this picture?
This post is spinning off a facebook posting, which I now cannot find...so I apologize for not giving credit and the hat tip. If you know who you are, tell me and I'll gladly give credit for spotting this...heretical monstrosity.

Come on, we've all seen worse. Those hippie/boyfriend Jesus's who look more like sad little girls than men.
Yes, the picture is ridiculous because it looks like he's going to skip the whole death and resurrection thing and go to war. Glaringly obvious wrongs that are easily explained. The underweight teenage hearthrob Jesus's are more insidious in my opinion.
(In Austrian accent): I'll be back!
Oops, I broke your flimsy wood, could we have a do-over. Maybe this time you could scourge me or something.
This is what happens when Christians watch more He-Man than read scripture.
Jesus with 'roid rage?
Jesus! next week on WWE!
"I thirst -- for another Red Bull!"
"It is finished! I am outta' here!"
Well, that WOULD explain the large number of pieces of the true cross we still have.
And Mel Gibson yelled, "Cut! Dang Styrofoam crosses!"
And Jesus saith unto him, "Get away from me with that spear, Roman dog!"
This is just before the cage match with Pilate and Caiaphas, right?
Not exactly Isaiah 53 or Psalm 22, is it? Or the Gospels. A bit short on blood and/or suffering.
No sign accusing him of being "King of the Jews"? Or particularly Semitic features, either.
"If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me -- and we'll snap them apart like rotten timber when we get there."
I think I got it going, having put it on my Facebook feed, after receiving it in email from my friend, here.
I did my doctoral work on Matthew, and am writing a commentary on Mark, and so couldn't help but call out just how wrong this thing is.
"Okay guys, you still don't get it, that when I say 'Love Thy Neighbor' I MEAN it. So you really want Me to come down there and MAKE you understand?"
