Thomas Kinkade is Going To Jail – But Just for 10 Days

posted by Kris Rasmussen

Well, I have been following the social fall and public unraveling of bestselling painter of Christian kitsch for months now – actually years. Now at least one of Kinkade’s problems is being resolved. He has finally been sentenced for a DUI several months ago. He will only send ten days in jail after a no contest plea and then will be on probation.
I don’t share the news so people can make cheap jokes at his expense, but rather I continue to ask why there is so little concern on the behalf of many Christians about a long series of transgressions on Kinkade’s part. His commerical success certainly isn’t being threatened by these escapades. As a recent NPR segment implies, the hypocrisy is ours, far more than KInkade’s,

    I wonder if some of his trouble is related to his commercial success. Nothing is harder to maintain and it takes an enormous toll. He is actually a fairly good “serious” artist, and he may need to reclaim that talent and skill and especially insight. It may not sell well, at first, but I suspect he may be able to live well still.

    Mr. Kinkade is one of well my favorite Christian painter. His work is so inspiring and it saddens me to know that the devil has tricked him. He knows the word of God says “be ye not drunk with strong drinks” be sober-minded” something is going on in his spirit perhaps he has strayed away from God’s word, God’s concepts & commands. Let’s pray for our brother and not criticize or condemn him. Jesus told the those who brought the woman caught in adultery “anyone without sin cast the first stone at her” and He then told her “where are your accusers? (they dropped their stones & left) Jesus said they don’t accuse you neither do I, go and sin no more”. Bro Kinkade, I am praying for you & with you!
    Your sister in Christ, We love you, God loves you most!!
