I take a perverse amusement in the sheer volume of people that think they can convince an atheist they are wrong by quoting scripture from a book that said atheist doesn't believe in in the first place.
Here's an evangelical pro tip for you... if quoting bible verses was going to bring someone back around to believing in a god, that would have happened already in their lives. Some stranger from the Internet whose whole argument is "God is real because the bible says he's real, and the bible is real because god says it is..." Yeah, that's not going to work. It's called circular logic, and if that works for you, well, fine, but it's not something a rationalist is going to embrace.
i hate christians.... dont send me a million hate replys. in my honest opinion, which i have every right to share, i think there a bunch of scumbags who force there ways on people like me. And the ones that dont are still bad. There SO into this idea that well ugh dont get me started. Dont hate me. Im just saying.
Faith isn't opposite of knowledge or rationalism. Faith actually dwells in knowledge. People can't have faith in what they don't know or avoid to know. Try knowing Jesus first before disproving His existence. I suggest reading More Than A Carpenter by Josh McDowell then evaluate if Christianity makes sense to you. But nice art work anyway. I liked how it resembled the cross as where Jesus died. but yeah, I believe He's living.
The art is great...the colours, the composition... But I believe that Jesus raise from the death...but i'm not asking other people to GET OVER IT! Each one has his or her own beleifs, they are personal. Religion, faith is one of the most vulnerable topics and it have to be treated with respect and I don't think that you're doing it the right way. There are more topics, social topics like violence against childs, etc, that can be trated from art like this... No religion, it seems to be a way to make fun of something like this...
i love the idea expressed here. if something happens, the vast majority of people never move forward they always look behind and try to find answers in the past. but the only answer is to continue your path further. people who do that become innovators, their own life builders, and people who don't always fade behind waiting for someone strong to tell them where to go and what to do. Religion is nothing more but a people enslaving way. At some point people simply stop considering the world around them by themselves and follow the script written by someone's hand. Is tha what you want? being a doll? wake the hell up and GET OVER IT.
Overall the concept and composition, along with the chosen typefaces are very well thought out, planned, and executed. You are not dissing Christianity, I think your is making a very nice social commentary on how people are bombarded with advertisements trying to force their belief system and persuade us into another lifestyle (I mean what advertising doesn't do that on a basic level.) and While advertising is all good and fine, by elevating that one idea and moment to the level that most Christians do with the "he died for our sins" and the "3:16" we as viewers, christian or not are becoming numb to the original concept and impact that the thing was originally supposed to make.
So in essence, this is a very good design with a very good concept beneath it. I applaud you, art Is your weapon, defend yourself. For all the other people that troll you, when I go to bed every night, i will say a prayer for them wishing as i wish them goodnight. and as I pray, I will pray that they wake up to their willful ignorance that they contribute to this world.
It makes no sense to me why people are getting worked up about this. If they didn't like it, they didn't have to come on here, and explode the comments box. They could of just clicked on something else.
getting back at your work. its a very interesting concept. but why the "Jesus died. get over it" yes indeed Jesus did die but he rose again after 3 days. are you trying to be anti christian or stating a fact? to me is just stating a fact against Catholics who like to use images of Jesus dead on the cross.
now my 2 cent. its really interesting how people use art to move people and this does it. but is this how art is to suppose to move people? to create anger? no you should use your talents to move people to improve the world and make people realize the wrong things in this world and make things better and not create anger. im sure you don't believe in god but you should use your talents for a greater good like the chrisis in the middle east, or the chaos in africa. im pretty sure you are going to counter with something like "well the world would be better off without christians" well i ask you this, what does JESUS (not a ignorant christian) promote? chaos? war? murder? no he promotes love, peace, and most important salvation. image a world if there was only love, peace and one helping the other? Jesus does not bring chaos but only order.
again great concept but you have double messages. but if you want to move people for greater good, you should do it on something else.
"is this how art is to suppose to move people? to create anger? no you should use your talents to move people to improve the world and make people realize the wrong things in this world and make things better and not create anger."
I don't think it's a bad thing to create controversy through art. In fact, that is precisely what a lot of artists aim to do - create controversy.
