There is no end to the foolishness of man. That’s what I thought when I read an article yesterday about a “church” in Vasteras, Sweden. Forty volunteers spent about eighteen months building a 6-foot-tall statute of “Jesus”, made out of 30,000 Lego blocks. The statyte now stands behind the altar and people from across Sweden are fascinated by it. And you thought politicians were the dumbest people on earth!
This is about as dumb as it gets. Why in the world would anyone waste their time and money making a “Lego Jesus”? In the first place, nobody knows what Jesus looks like. Any statute of “Jesus” would be worthless, even if constructed out of gold. Second, would it not be better to use that time and energy preaching the gospel or feeding the poor? The folly of religious people never ceases to amaze me.
Instead of trying to capture the likeness of Jesus in a statute we should be seeking to emulate His example. It’s better that people see something of Jesus in you than wasting your time trying to picture Him with Lego blocks. While some applaud their efforts, in my opinion it is sheer nonsense!
