I don’t want to say Jesus contradicts himself. But sometimes I wish I could ask him… “What!? Do I let my light shine? Or Hide my good deeds. What is my light, is this a good deed? I don’t understand!!”
I consider myself a pretty modest person. I don’t like bragging or assuming people will like my work. This makes it difficult, because I should be marketing and promoting my comic to get success. But I always feel like that has a level of Pride and arrogance, as if everyone should look at my comic ’cause it’s so great. So in the end, barely anyone sees it. It’s kind of a little mental dilemma I have.
This actually leads nicely into an announcement. I’m taking a break from the comic for an indefinite period of time. Due to personal stuff and other projects I’m pursuing, I feel like my time is better spent elsewhere lately. I’m very grateful for everyone that has kept up with the comic thus far, all 20 of you. (or so…) XD
If my situation changes in the future, or God kicks my ass and says “Hey, who said you could stop!?” Then I may return. Until then, my most heartfelt thanks for reading my thoughts and joining me in a journey through this weird and wonderful book. I’m leaving the site up, since there’s still over a years worth of comics to enjoy. =)
As always, thanks for reading,
A lot or religious people hated Paul. Much like they hated Jesus. At this point Paul is on trial, but he actually didn’t do anything. Some religious nuts see this as a good chance to kill him off, so they concoct a plan and make an oath. What I want to know is what happened to them? Paul lives for years after this. Did these wannabe assassins all die of starvation? Of course I’m sure they gave up their foolish oath before long. The dramatic statement is probably all fluff and show. Much like wearing fancy clothes, like priests. In the end, it doesn’t count for much. (I’m not against fancy robes, they look cool…)
Last week, I started cleaning the comic up with pens. Real life pens and markers! Not the digital ones found in photoshop. So the comic is traditionally drawn now, on actual paper. I may or may not keep doing it, I just wanted to give it a try. The rest, like color, is still done in photoshop. But it’s fun to draw on paper sometimes.
Thanks for reading,
Jesus is warning us about false teachers. We shall know them by their fruit. I assume once the sheep see the disguised wolf eating their friends, they will know he is not a real sheep. Of course a hotly debated topic then is what does the fruit of a false teacher look like? Who gets to call that guy out? I’m not going to get into it, because it’s a touchy subject and I have my own opinions. But just to throw out a guideline, if the teacher says something counter to Jesus, they’re probably handing you some bad fruit.
There’s a lot of popular sayings in our culture that come from the bible. A wolf in sheeps clothing being one of them. I’ll be reading the bible and suddenly come across somthing like this, and go “aaah, that’s where that came from.” It’s a pretty influential book. And I am an uneducated ignoramus. I know. Heh.
Sorry it’s late. I am back from vacation and it won’t happen again. (I pray.)
