Jesus May Love You, But He’s Not Showing Up In Your Ultrasound
Over at My Fox Birmingham, I kid you not, they have this ultrasound featured in a story called, “Did Jesus Appear In An Ultrasound?”
Let me answer the question: clearly, unequivocally, Jesus did not appear in that ultrasound.
Of course, some people disagree,
She showed the picture to her sister Tequoia Smith, a married mother of four who has seen her share of ultrasounds.
“I was expecting to see little body parts,” said Smith. “Like a face, arms and legs.” But instead she too saw the image of Jesus on the cross.
“As soon as I saw it I was like oh my gosh.”
The baby girls legs are completely extended and straight in the photo, which resembles Jesus’ arms stretched out on the cross.
Her developing knees look like Jesus’ head with a crown of thorns.
Sledge said she also found it weird that when you turn the picture sideways, “her legs are perfectly crossed at the ankles, like Jesus’ legs would be nailed on the cross.”
…Some people are encouraging the mom to sell the image on eBay, but she has not decided wether or not the image is for sale just yet.
She embraced the picture as a positive message from above.
“People say maybe my baby is gonna be blessed and maybe it is a good sign,” said Sledge. “I don’t know, I’ve done wrong in my life, maybe he’s forgiven me early.”
I’m a born again, Southern Baptist who believes in Jesus Christ and prays to him often. That being said, finding Jesus is not like playing “Where’s Waldo.” Jesus is not in that ultrasound, his face isn’t in the bark of the tree in your yard, in the potato chip you almost bit into, or in some random rock formation. It would be nice if the sort of yokels who see Jesus’ face in everything would come to understand that before they get talked into doing these embarrassing local color pieces by reporters looking for funny space fillers.
