Since those who have dismissed me as a nut (there is some justice to this, I think) are already gone, I will apologize here for any offense I may be about to give. I will add, though, that I have thought long and hard about this and have not been able to come up with why the following would be offensive, unless the offended party also had issues with the bulk of both the mainline and conservative Christian establishment.
Inspirational Christian images are very, very common. You have almost certainly seen them all your life, with or without noticing. They consist of a short biblical verse printed over a photograph that may be thematically linked to the quotation, or may just be a sunset, a rainbow, or some similar attractive scene.
In addition to their substantial brick-and-mortar presence, these images are also widely displayed, offered, and sold (!) here online. I run into them constantly when I am working on MRtB, and over time I have come to find them a little troubling. So I thought I would make a little game.
What follows are:
Six typical inspirational religious images based on quotes from the first half of Jeremiah, found randomly on the internet.And the three questions, if you are playing the game, are: "Can you tell the difference? How? and What, if any, are the implications?"
Six additional images, also based on quotes from the first half of Jeremiah, that I assembled myself.
