I made a pass through one of the sports websites this morning to check the headlines. There was a picture of a rather tall basketball guy sporting a tattoo. The tattoo was the phrase "Only The Strong Survive" super-imposed on a cross made of two bloodied nails. The paradox of the phrase and the symbol raised a few questions for me:
-The strong survive until what? Death?
-If the cross is representative of Jesus, He didn't survive, did He? He laid down His life.
-This guy clearly does not understand what a crucifixion was really like.
-Human strength is overrated, the type of strength that comes from total dependence on Christ Jesus is the only way.
What a dumb tattoo.
