Jesus – The Action Figure: Cool or Not Cool?

Recently, at a local bookstore, I saw something that literally made me do a double-take. I thought that I may have been mistaken, but I was not – it was indeed a Jesus Christ action figure. With posable arms, mind you. You can imagine how stunned I was to behold such a thing. Absolutely had to take a pic with my cell phone.

‘Oh…my…God’, I thought as the mock shutter sounded, signifying that I had captured this shocking image.

And then I continued to think about it. I want to know what YOU think – should Jesus be protrayed as an action figure? Does it reduce him to the likes of Barbie or G.I. Joe? Does it empower children to live out their faith? Genius? Blasphemous?

What say you?
