I think Mister Man is going to hell.
I mean, we’ve tried. We’re really tried. We go to church every Sunday. Mister Man goes to Sunday school before church. He has his own children’s Bible. He’s even singing in the youth choir.
But we have a problem. This morning, I asked him to tell me about the picture he was drawing.
On the left, we have the Incredible Hulk. Normal enough for a five year old boy, right? To his right, we have Jesus.
This is where the problem starts. The Incredible Hulk (who has some unknown red substance in his hand, possibly a rock? I was afraid to ask) is fighting Jesus. He’s going to kill Jesus, in fact. And up in the right hand corner, we have Spiderman who’s mostly out of the view.
Spiderman is going to spin a web around Jesus once he falls down. And you know that he’s going to fall down because you see the arrow telling what’s happening in the story that is the picture. I’m not quite so sure why the Incredible Hulk looks so happy to be killing Jesus, but I certainly understand the frown on Jesus’s face.
I had a little chat with Mister Man to better understand this and then reexplained that while Jesus is killed on Good Friday, it was done by some very bad men, that Jesus allowed this to happen because He was making a sacrifice for us, and that He came back to life on Easter which meant that we are all saved.
Is there remedial Sunday School? Poor kid is really in trouble here.
