Dear Christians, are you offended by this painting?

Painted by New York artist, Michael D'Antuono, the depiction dubbed 'The Truth' portrays President Obama wearing a crown of thorns, extending his arms and looking down as Jesus Christ does in crucifix imagery. The painting is on display in Boston. Are you offended by it?

Michael says..
Linda you too like to dey find trouble. What's with you and Christians sef. Do you want us Christians to be offended by it or what. One minute it's about pastors and their jets, pastors divorcing and now this?!?
If you're so open minded, objective and liberal then why don't you put one for the muslims to comment on that might cause an offence and see what happens. Nonsense!
The portrait is completely blasphemous by the way

It just looks really stupid. Far from offensive. Almost like the artist is mocking Obama.

PRINCE CHARMING said...

I am not! That's plain symbolising. If Jesus came to save the world and the present economic and political Leader of the world and president of America is being symbolised as him then there is nothing offending about it pls. I just see it as symbolising Barack as man to take his country from their present and past problems to a better America just as Christ saved the world. I am not saying I am agreeing to the fact that the pic refers to Obama as second Jesus but just a mere symbolization.

We are Christians, we are not moved by what we hear or what we see, we are only moved by the word of God. As such, a painting like this doesn't change our relationship with God, besides our religion clearly shows that our God fights his battle unlike many others where humans fight the battle of the god they profess. The bible says in Isaiah 59:1 "Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:" We do not get offended by such things, no real christian would.

Ofcourse yes. The truth is anyone who dosnt know Jesus will be out to slander Him. This is no big deal. Jesus has seen worse things. My prayer is that Michael D'Antuono experiences the lov of Jesus.

I guess more importantly for me is the fact that you no longer consider yourself a Christian: "Dear Christians..."

As an educated Nigerian-American who was a VERY vocal atheist until a few months ago when I met Jesus, I have one advice for you: Run for your life!

john imade said...

Why on earth should a good Christian care about a picture depicting reality. Barack has never denied being an active member of several secret society in the USA and Britain e.g. The Illuminati. Just like most of your pastors like it or not are are members of such fraternities...

Adeboye, Oyedikpo, Kumuyi should all be painted in like manner for openly committing Daylight Robbery in the name of God.

LINDA, visit this website and see what one man is doing...www.1action.org ...

he feeds Christians before he preaches, provide free business ideas and where possible give you money to start life, he builds capacity rather than plunder...this is what men and women of God are suppose to be doing.

BUT Linda, you and i know that you will never blog about this kind of people..prove me wrong abeg. Let the war of words begin.

BARACK OBAMA MY FOOT. PALESTINIANS, AFGHANS, IRAQIS, SYRIA AND OFF LATE NIGERIANS KNOWS BETTER THAT MERE GRAMMAR AND POLISHED ENGLISH VIBRATING FROM A BLUE SUIT AND RED TIE ADDICT.

Why should I?even the posture being depicted that we all assume to be Christ's posture on the cross is also a product of an artist's or historian's imagination,nobody alive today was present as at the time!
Besides,even if it were the correct posture,a true xtian is meant to be 'Christ-like' in nature,now I ask you this question,' what would Jesus do if He saw someone mocking Him'?

Adrian said...

I don't think he was trying to mock Jesus. I think he was trying to say that though Obama wants to help, people keep castigating him which if you look through the magnifying glass, it's true. I don't know what better way an artist would be able to pass along the message but as a hardcore Christian, i'd say it makes light of what Jesus did. He misunderstands the gravity of what happened on that cross. The painter's not a christian but he knows about Christ.

The deeper "truth"; the artist is portraying Obama as "A saviour", the one the whole world has been waiting for, the one whose kingdom shall never end.
THE SAVIOUR (JESUS) has ALREADY COME! Any other is the antithesis of THE saviour.
There is only ever ONE ORIGINAL, don't be deceived by "a copy".

@Adrian....i quite agree with you, but u can see in the painting, that Obama wasn't on a cross. The only things dat makes dis painting depict Christ are d crown of thorns and way he looked down. We seem to 4get that the only reason why we reconcile this image with that of Christ is because someone also painted the picture of Christ dying on d cross, a picture we are so familiar with dat we re almost worshiping d picture and nt the Christ it stands 4, a picture dat I'm 100% sure dat it wasn't painted in d time of christ but yrs later, a picture dat I'm also very sure that whoever painted it didn't have an eyewitness of christ dying on d cross to describe it to him; it was his own interpretation of what he musta read in d bible. And yet we accepted it as christ despite never having seen Christ.
Let's be objective people. Thinking primitively isn't d way to go.

@Omotola, are men of God God themselves? I see u defending men of God here like ur life depends on it, yet d picture depicting Obama as Christ u did nt see fit to defend..however blindly...and I'm sure u re a born again xtian, no?

It's insulting need I say, I'll not fight God's battle for HIM, let him remember those who tried to mock Jesus in the past, their end was disastrous - nothing much to say, Christians are peaceful and we will not form any book haramist in the name of fighting for God but He will surely deal with him @ his own time

Well i would like to highlight the creative aspect of this expression to the effect that its symbolic meaning leads in the direction of not being valued cherished and appreciated even in the face of hard work, integrity and merit.

President Obama, has done enough for to earn a place in history as the first black two term president of America, yet the so called establishment and the red necks still does not value, cherish or even appreciate his contribution to their society even when they are benefiting from it simply because he is a person of color.

On the other hand, as Christians we are not concerned with the things of the flesh, after all remember what Jesus said to Peter when he was enraged by a passerby mocking him. Christianity will always turn the other chic, but you know what we will always triumph, cos we are not of the flesh but of the spirit. So in my personal and humble opinion as a christian i see no offense, it was only a creative expression of the difficulty President Obama faces as a two term first black president of America.

Anonymous said...

LMAO I hope the third commenter knows that this is NOT Obama and that someone just painted it. The guy is looking for cheap publicity ans trust Christian Warriors to provide it. The God I serve fights His own battles so no, this is not offensive - just mildly amusing in its quest for controversy. Next please.

Christians are not Muslims who fight over issues that are meaningless.
Christians have brain and they know no individual can fight for God. WHY! cos God is the almighty powerful God and he his able and more than able to fight for himself. So even if Obama decides to wear a crown made of broken bottles or nail himself on the cross like Jesus it doesn't change any thing. We all know the true Jesus. full stop.

Please give me a break, u guys that are acting offensive, tell me that u've not mocked the muslims in this country, even calling them names. So what if an ignorant artist paint a picture of Obama, how does that potray what Jesus went thru, besides if God did not strike the artist immediately, then we should leave the man to his faith, and note that Obama might not have anything to do with this painting, and we should learn to understand that God Cannot be MOCKED. And a peice of advice if u dont want ur religion to be mocked, dont mock or judge others.

why is the Picture not showing Jesus having sex? Let see what the reaction will be from the christian adherent

pple just come on blog sites to say whatever they like. why cast obama over what he might not even be aware of? obama didnt make the painting, neither did he stand to be painted that way. we nigerians should stop claiming to be the holiest on earth. as much as i dont like the concept behind the painting (whatever michael had in mind), that is for him to answer to God and you need not be a judge or fight for our God. as for u all who keep calling obama the anti-christ , which anti-christ is worse than the anti-christs in the nigerian leadership who have plunged the nigerian nation into perpetual poverty. making little childern die of hunger and starvation? what could qualify one to be more anti-christ than the attributes of a demon who will kill and suck innocent blood to win elections and wreck havoc on the national treasury? u probably know better.

Our God can fight his battle- Obama is not even qualify to Act passion play-

If you are offended by this then wait and see what OBAMA as in store for the world after he enforces the OBAMA CARE BILL which has already come in ti law and will commence next year! And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16, 17 KJV) it's called the RFID CHIP, guess where it goes FORE HEAD or RIGHT HAND!

americans are can be really stupid when it comes to expressing their thought. this is an insult to the entire christaindom.

Anonymous said...

The picture doesn't remind me of Jesus. When I look at the cross, I feel peace and remember the ultimate price He paid for me. The artist's work looks like a caricature of Obama and I think he was trying to depict how Obama has been wrongly accused and blamed for the things(state of the economy) he didn't cause. He should have used something else besides the crown of thorns but I can bet a buck that he doesn't believe in God.

Anonymous said...

Am a christian but i really don't care.If the artist felt Obama could be compared to jesus, that is his opinion. Actually i like the painting.

I see a lot of retards on here attacking Obama as if he commissioned the painting. Some mumu even said he posed for it! I'm sorry Linda, but the quality of your readership has really fallen.

DONALD said...

IF THIS POSTURE WAS GIVEN BY OBAMA,THEN HE MUST BE CRAZY,BUT IF IT BE AN ART WORK,MAY GOD ADD PUNISHMENT TO THE GENERATION OF THE PAINTER.WHY DON'T THEY MAKE CARICATURE OF MOHAMMED AND SEE THE REACTION OF THE ISLAMS.I DON'T BLAME THEM CHRISTIANS ARE TOO SIMPLE.

Peter said...

@Donald.. no we are just following the foot steps of our Father Jesus.For the battle is of the Lord.
WE symbolizes the Love and Peace of Christ. thats why we look simple, but we are solid rock in Jesus!!

Anonymous said...

We are not offended because we know our Lord and our God whom we serve and owe all praises. He was the one that died for us on the CROSS of Calvary for us (mankind)to be saved, he is not and can NEVER be mistaken for any other person till end of the earth. Praise be to you our Lord JESUS CHRIST, both now and for ever. Amen.

Not offended, i know who Jesus is, Obama's blood cannot and did not wash away my sins. i cant be bothered by any mumu portrait. Let God be the Judge.

But if it was our brothers ****** the painter would be in protective custody by now.
