A Techno-Religious Commentary

Jesus Selfie

Certainly considered amusing by some and sacrilegious by others, the above photograph of Jesus taking a selfie while on the cross is an unintentional but interesting juxtaposition of ancient values with modern ones. How should we mesh the values of times past with the values of the present? Does being religious somehow require some kind of aversion to social media technologies? How would Jesus have felt were he born in 2014? I believe the answers to these questions are entirely dependent on the individual and must be evaluated personally, this picture just served as an eye-catching, seasonally appropriate juxtaposition of these two sets of ideals.
