DES PERES, MO (KTVI-FOX2now.com) A man dressed as Jesus was kicked out of a St. Louis area church Sunday. Police were even called to get in the middle of the spiritual showdown. "We're called to be ambassadors for Jesus Christ, ambassadors should represent, and that's what I do. I try to represent my Lord and savior Jesus Christ," said Neal Thompson Monday night, wearing the same white robe and cross, and carrying the same staff he's been using every Sunday for 22 years.

I believe I saw this guy at the Waffle House the other night. He was sitting at a table with Boba Fett.

This guy is probably harmless however I know of many churches these days that have armed deacons. I go to one.

Everyone needs a hobby. Some have more difficulty than others in choosing an appropriate one.

Jesus dressed like a typical Jewish man of his time.

If he were around today, he’d dress like an ordinary American.

No one knows what Jesus looked like.. the bible says Jesus was homely..
Maybe the guy was dressed as JUDAS...

“He said ‘Take up your cross, your breastplate, and your staff and follow in Jesus Christ’s footsteps and wear a white robe to show your sincerity,’” he said. “That’s my job, to spread the word.”

Well...I think he over did it just a bit but as long as he was not mocking Jesus and really trying to get the message of Jesus out there I have no problem with him.

According to Robin Williams, when Jesus returns, he’s not going to look like Ted Nugent, no he’s going to look like Charles Bronson.

"One of the deacons saw me," he said, "and when I went in the church he met me and he said, 'Can I help you? What do you want?' I said, 'I want to go to church here today.' And he said, 'What do you believe in? Are you Christian? What religion are you?' I said, 'I'm a Christian.'"

They asked the wrong questions. They should have asked, "How may a man enter the Kingdom of Heaven?"

Here in California the guys named Jesus hang out in front of the Home Depot and try to jump into your pick-up truck as you leave the parking lot with your supplies.

"Y'all got a problem with Jews?"

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

I think this is kinda cool. The guy isn't causing any kind of problem other than being different. Heck, he isn't even stinking or cheap wine or raving to demons. He just shows up quietly, representing Jesus, and let what happens, happen. I would think it would provoke some good discussion and, maybe, challenge some assumptions and lead true Christians to be open to loving more freely.

But, nope, get the hell out of here you freak.

Then again, I'll bet this church kicked out the real Jesus a long, long time ago . . .

For all of you saying that “he wouldn’t be a problem”, I disagree. The purpose of the Divine Service in the Lutheran church is to focus on the Word of God and worship Him. If the Elders in the church thought that this person would take focus off of the REAL Christ, they were absolutely correct and fulfilling their roles as spiritual leaders. Any obvious distraction during the service should be avoided.
