Lighten up! Jesus had some serious things to say, things we often
"forget" because they require us to give to one another, forgive one
another, and love one another, without judging one another and especially doing
that judging against ourselves, against whom the others always seem to come out
worse. He also said a few things about the fleeting value of "stuff"
versus the lasting value of "Heavenly stuff" which he actually practiced
in front of everyone--recall, if you will, that he was homeless, and never
rechristened the religion he preached after Himself, but self-identified as a
Jew. So...he was, in a sense, an outlier from the beginning. And if that is the
message of this advert, let it be! Jesus also went to weddings and celebrations,
had friends, loved his family, enjoyed the beauty that the Father had created,
cherished children...What a wonderful Savior! Rock on!
I find it interesting in this advertisement that the intended target audience is
probably young adults to thirtysomethings yet I don't believe the word
"hipster" is "hip" to this demographic anymore.
the truth:["reformed egyptian" (should be lower case)"]"Egyptian" is always capitalized in English. Languages/demonyms
are always capitalized. Basic English spelling rules. The capitalization of
reformed may be debatable, depending on context, but the capitalization of
"Egyptian" is not.So, fail on your part.
Seems pretty desperate to me.
@Mukkake"reformed egyptian" (should be lower case), is a
description of writing used by an anicent people, NOT a title, NOT a
name, it is also a translation of writing, where "reformed
egyptian" was apparently the most accurate translation of some text.If you going to throw out such nonsense at least get your facts
right.I cringe when people try to label Jesus.Isaiah
55:8"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your
ways my ways, saith the Lord."
They do realize hipster has absolutely negative connotations? Nobody admits to
being a hipster, no matter how much they may qualify.Also, the
Hipster Jesus and Hipster Joseph Smith memes have been around for a bit:"It's called Reformed Egyptian... It's a pretty obscure
language. You've probably never heard of it."
Thank heaven it's the Catholic Church putting these out. Any commercial
enterprise that attempted something this bold would spark a front page
