Jesus Is Coming Back! Look Pretty!

posted by Jason Boyett

Based on commercials now airing in Superior, Wisconsin, a local jeweler is having a Second Coming Sale. Larry Falter thinks the End of Days is imminent, so he’s pledged to offer his jewelry for 50%…maybe until Jesus comes back. “I […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Yesterday, during overtime in the game between the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson had the game-winning touchdown pass fall right into his arms. It would have won the game. It would have been a […]

posted by Jason Boyett

Good news for people who love enormous statues of Jesus: Now there’s a great reason to go to Poland! Swiebodzin, a 21,000-citizen Polish town near the German border, is almost finished building a gigantic Christ statue. When finished, it’ll be […]

I Was Wrong: Calvin and the New Pornographers

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s impossible to take back a blog post, but I need to take back what I wrote about the decision of Calvin College to disinvite The New Pornographers from a scheduled concert at the university. Yesterday I complained that it […]

Calvin College Expels (New) Pornographers

posted by Jason Boyett

Calvin College, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is one of those Christian universities that has an admirable focus on art and culture. It has a beautiful campus, and I really like the faculty there (at least the ones I met back […]

Creeped Out by Guardian Angels

posted by Jason Boyett

Two weeks ago we discussed how, among other surprises, 55% of Americans believed they had a personal guardian angel who had protected them from harm. What we didn’t discuss is how the idea of a guardian spirit hovering around me […]

The Horror of Puppets and the Sinner’s Prayer

posted by Jason Boyett

My lifelong companionship with spiritual doubt began during my childhood, after my Christian salvation experience. It has to do with a lot of things, including the intensely evangelistic culture I grew up in where “making a decision for Christ” and/or […]

God in a Nightie

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve looked at the “Creation of Adam” fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel multiple times. When I do, my eye is always drawn to the iconic image of the hand of God doing the ET thing with Adam, […]

Six Jesus Statues That Creep Me Out

posted by Jason Boyett

Jesus statues: Like MTV reality shows and limericks about an island south of Cape Cod, rarely are they made in good taste. Occasionally they are just plain disturbing, as in these examples… ——– 1. Drowning Jesus This 62-feet high sculpture […]

Celestial Soul Portraits

posted by Jason Boyett

First, please look at this photo: I know what you’re thinking: Can this photo even be improved? Clearly it is awesome already, what with the guy’s mullet perm, floppy hippie shirt, super-masculine power violin stance, and absence of feet. Also […]

American Jesus Art!

posted by Jason Boyett

This blog has been fascinated, appalled, and otherwise dumbfounded in the past by Jesus art, which is rarely inspirational and often inappropriate. Today we have a whole new painting to discuss. Behold: Jesus, the Founding Father of America and He […]

Choose Your Favorite Jesus Art

posted by Jason Boyett

As has been discussed before on this blog, it’s hard to make good Jesus art. It’s easy to make bad Jesus art. It’s also challenging to discuss the goodness or badness of Jesus art, because people get defensive and use […]

Apocalypse Alert: Total Eclipse of the Sun

posted by Jason Boyett

In case you didn’t know, the start of the apocalypse might have occurred earlier today when parts of the eastern hemisphere (including China and India) experienced a full solar eclipse. Like Dick Cheney, eclipses have long been considered harbingers of […]

Ads That Will Give You the Willies

posted by Jason Boyett

Say what you will about the current age of advertising, what with all the celebrity sell-outs and general ickiness and our inability to get particular jingles out of our heads. But at least our ads aren’t filled with utterly disturbing […]

Lookin’ Good for Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

Some days I enter into my local Christian bookstore/knick-knackery, and–looking over the vast shelves of Purpose-Driven products, Beth Moore Bible studies, Veggie Tales merchandise, Precious Moments figurines, dumb Christian parody t-shirts, inspirational artwork and home decor, and books about the […]

Worst Christian-Single Model Ever

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s probably no surprise to you that I show ads on my blog. This is because I am a greedy, greedy money-changer who couldn’t live without the $4.35 I make each month from Google AdSense. It’s also because I’m part […]

Tyler Frost, Carrie Prejean, and Newsy Believers

posted by Jason Boyett

From the overflowing “Dear Christians, This Is a Bad Idea” files, let me pontificate upon two new celebrities in the world of Christian culture: 1. Tyler Frost, the boy who wanted to go to prom. Poor Tyler just wanted to […]

The First 100 Days: An Idea

posted by Jason Boyett

So yesterday was the big “First 100 Days” milestone in President Obama’s administration. I’ve always found this to be a curious way to mark the passage of time. One hundred is a good, round number — when you’re doing math […]

Caption Contest: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

I was making fun of inspirational Twitter posts earlier today and @shueytexas reminded me of the clichéd “Hang in There” virtues of the kitten-in-a-tree poster. Which I may or may not have hung in my room as an 11 year-old. […]

Not a Good Time for Twitter

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve expressed my enjoyment of Twitter here before, but some people seem to get a little too, um, wrapped up in the joy of 140-character posts. Guys like David Prager, who got exposed on Gawker this week for a stream […]

iPhone Apps I’d Like to See

posted by Jason Boyett

The other day a friend of mine was showing off the fact that he had that cool iPhone application, Shazam, that appears in the commercial…you know, the one where you can hold it up to any song that’s playing and […]

Dogs + Airbrushing = Awesome

posted by Jason Boyett

There are some photos that are so jaw-droppingly weird, they don’t really require commentary. But I’m a writer and I can’t help it. Must…be…snarky. Molly and her poodle, Skipper, thought it was just a harmless, pretty peacock they saw in […]

The Five Rules of Karaoke

posted by Jason Boyett

One of the things we enjoyed most on our cruise a few weeks ago were the late-night karaoke sessions. I semi-rocked a version of “Man of Constant Sorrows” (from the film O Brother, Where Art Thou) on the first night […]

The Grapes of Wrath

posted by Jason Boyett

People go to hell for continually calling attention to this sort of thing — and for laughing at it, as I have — but my friend Cara reminded me of it at her blog. So it’s her fault. And this […]

Canned Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

First, I need you to look at the product below, produced by some new Christian brand called 1 in 3 Trinity. They specialize in Christian clothing and energy drinks. That’s right: energy drinks. You should know that a Christian energy […]

Katy Perry: Worse Than Amy Grant

posted by Jason Boyett

You know how, back in the day, everyone used to get upset when Christian pop stars like Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith “crossed over” to mainstream radio in order to build their fan base? Katy Perry made the jump, […]

7 Ill-Advised Overgeneralizations about Americans

posted by Jason Boyett

Got back last night from a trip to San Antonio, Texas, with my family. We hit Sea World on Friday and Six Flags-Fiesta Texas on Saturday. Based on these two experiences, I have made the following stereotypical generalizations about people […]

Estus Pirkle and The Believer’s Heaven

posted by Jason Boyett

In recent weeks, a really short, low-budget religious film has been making the you’ve-gotta-see-this rounds among cackling irreligious hipsters and flinching people of faith. Written and produced by old-time Mississippi Baptist minister Estus Pirkle, the film is called “The Believer’s […]

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
If you've ever felt out of place among all the exciting, expressive, emotional enthusiasm of a contemporary church service...or an evangelist's demands that you need to constantly be sharing your faith boldly to strangers...if it simply wipes you out to be surrounded by people all the time,  then y
