Faith without Action

There is no universal agreement on what it takes to be a Christian. Here is the view of the Epistle of James. Which also happens to be my view.

The text spoken by God is taken almost word for word from the Letter of James in the wonderful book, God is Disappointed in You, where Mark Russell brilliantly summarizes each book in the Bible. Russell’s brief summary of the entire Bible is that God is disappointed in you.



Easter seems like a good time for this comic. Christians have always tried to make sense of why Jesus had to die, and forgiveness seems to be the leading theory.

For another take on Easter, see last year’s Easter comic.


No Good Help

The holy writings of the world all went through many years of oral transmission before being written down. For example, it took thousands of years before the Old Testament was written down, writing not having been invented back then. It took decades after the death of Jesus for the Gospels to be written. The teachings of Mohammad were not collected into book form until after his death.

If you enjoyed this comic, you’d be doing the cats a big favour by forwarding it to someone else who might like it.
