Piece in progress

Sometimes I find it difficult to know what direction to go. Creatively, there are always a million options. So inspiration hit me yesterday to tackle an issue that I feel strongly about.

In a nutshell, I have been a Christian a long time now. I do my best despite my many inconsistent and contradictory nature. While I have made many mistakes along the way, I tend to believe my core beliefs and 'dogma' are in good shape.

So here is the beginning of a piece that illustrates my massive disdain for the 'word of faith' movement that has hijacked so many people. Especially the so called 'Faith Healers' that pimple the landscape. It's one thing to be a bonehead like me, and another all together to make the message of the Gospel look stupid and foolish. My mother was a quadriplegic's and was (for a short time after her accident) thinking that she was guaranteed a miraculous healing.

Anyway, here is the beginning of the piece. I will be adding Jesus Head PEZ dispensers, golden wheelchairs and cripples lining up. I'll update as I get along with it.
