<i>O Grave, Where is Thy Victory?</i> By Jan Toorop, ca. 1894. O Grave, Where is Thy Victory? By Jan Toorop, ca. 1894. Toorop was a Symbolist artist, heavily influenced by Art Nouveau. Here, he depicts numerous evil people or beings on the right—perhaps representing resentment, envy, jealousy, hate, love and conflict—seeking to entangle a dying man in the roots of the Tree of Life, but angels tear the roots away.

If that figure of 130 million is used that would translate into just over 9% of the total population of China. That is about the same percentage as German-speaking people in Canada. Do you think we should start taking German lessons? ;-) 

There are billions of Christians. It is the largest religious group in the world by far. It doesn't matter how many there are of us, but It very much matters how we conduct ourselves as Christians that will determine the level of the positive influence we can have on the World.

Wouldn't you agree?

I suppose there is no way to comment on pictures posted on the pictures site. Gary's most recent picture depicting the parable of the lost sheep by Alfred Soord I think is interesting in a number of ways. It is done in a romantic style we don't get Jesus' expression but we do get the expressive face of the bowing lamb and the menacing looks of the nearby vultures obviously waiting for the lamb's demise. I think that the halo around Christ's head was a little much but it may have been the style for church paintings at the time just around the end of the 1800s. 

Gary said that the picture paints a thousand words. A picture may be worth a thousand words but we get the point. If we just used our imaginations just a bit we could come up with 100 different scenarios depicting the same parable.

The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”                 So true, nothing comes to us except by the Lord's grace.    g.

he put on some clothes, for he was naked, and jumped into the sea....Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
