There's a blog in Tumblr that has been taking the artwork
of different Christians on DA, and posting it in a mock-gallery,
with the purpose of ridiculing God, Jesus, and the artists' faith.
I'm not going to lie, I got very angry at the person doing this, and
went ahead and reported my work on his page (he had taken 4 of my pieces)
It got taken down, but there are tons of images from many other Christians/other religions
on this blog, likely taken from DA or other sites.
But, on this journal: shock777.deviantart.com/journa…
had an idea about having a prayer vigil for this guy, and
it made me think..
I was too angry yesterday to think about it too much, but today, I think God
began to speak to me about it. I read the story of the rich man and Lazarus- a symbolic
parable Jesus told about not keeping the word to yourself - symbolized by the rich man, who has
plenty of food, who didn't want to share even the crumbs from his table with Lazarus.
I feel like God is telling me I did wrong in reporting the work, that I should've let him keep it..
because, the people on that site would likely never dare to look at a Christian page directly..
and maybe the images done by Christians (not the derogatory ones of course)
are like crumbs.. for people who, (though they may not want to say so openly) are starving for God.. So, this idea came to me this morning after thinking this: What if- instead of reporting this guy,
we send him messages telling him to put links to our work under each of our images? That way, they can keep the work-
and the images will have a source page, so people can look at our pages if they wish.
This is their page- note, there are some lewd images there.. fucknoreligiousfanart.tumblr.c…
I know it's painful to look at this page- but, what if it could reach people who would never dare step close to a Christian site??
Please express what you think, and maybe pray about it-
maybe we can share the thoughts we gather.
