The Roger Smith Lab Gallery in mid-town Manhattan canceled a display they were to have during Holy Week (the days between Palm Sunday and Easter) of a life-sized Jesus made out of chocolate. Now think this through with me. Don't you think that some part of this whole thing was so that bloggers like me would go nuts and post the link to the Gallery just like I did above? Well... of course!
Why have a chocolate Jesus on display during Jesus week? Because the canceled showing generated national exposure that's why.
Oh, by the way, the chocolate Jesus isn't the one pictured above. Somebody else did that quite awhile ago, so the artist doing the chocolate Jesus wasn't even original in his thought. But to be fair, it's hard to have an original thought. While we're being fair, I think most people would agree it would be a little weird to bite into a chocolate Jesus like the one pictured anyway. I know I wouldn't do it.
The chocolate Jesus the aforementioned artist produced was really just plain disrespectful. (That's why I don't have a picture of it, nor do I mention his name.) It got him some press and publicity though. Jesus does that for people, even people that are not following him or respecting Him. The picture above is piece of work done by the artist. A bedroom he covered with cheese. Probably most people aren't planning their weekends around making their way to see that exhibit, so I guess he tried his hand at seeing if Jesus couldn't get him a bit more visibility. These are just guesses mind you, I don't really know. But I do know the name of Jesus is powerful. Even when used for one's own ends.
The Bible tells us to "taste and see that the Lord is Good." Better than chocolate for the moment and with eternal rewards. Jesus sure is good! Using His name can get you some publicity. Loving His Name will bring you more staisfaction than one could ever imagine!
