'Jesus Appeared on My Nintendo,' Maryland Woman Claims
Christian Post ^ | September 28, 2011 | Luiza Oleszczuk

Posted on 10/03/2011 7:37:47 AM PDT by Alex Murphy

A 24-year-old woman from Maryland claims the Savior has appeared on the Nintendo set she bought on eBay.

Brittany Wampler spotted the image of Jesus Christ on top of one of the two newly purchased Nintendo sets she received from an eBbay seller, she told Kotaku, an online publication covering the gaming industry.

"We were inspecting it for cracks/damage and when we turned it just right into the light, the image showed up," she told Kotaku. "Our reaction was mainly curiousity [sic] at first. Then as we looked at it closer and ruled out what it couldn't be, we began to get excited about it."

The image, which Wampler sent to Kotaku at their request, appears to show a blurred human face with long hair and a short beard.

Wampler reportedly dismissed the possibility that the image had to do with a form of supernatural intervention. However, she specified that the design was a part of the plastic covering, not residue. She also assured the publication that she did not create the image, or Photoshop the photo. She said she wasn’t sure about the exact origin of the image.

"I was raised religious, but I haven't made up my mind really," she told Kotaku.

When pressured to answer if she believed that the image might be a form of Jesus’ apparition, she reportedly said that she believes the possibility.

Instances when an image of a divine figure seems to appear somewhere in everyday life tend to evoke a lot of excitement - both among believers and non-believers.

Such cases of "apparitions" touching the mundane life of mortals happen surprisingly often.

CP reported earlier this months that a French photographer caught an image of a “divine figure” with a halo on his camera when he was climbing in the mountains. In this case, the photographer admitted that, despite the unique, divine feel of the event, he believes the phenomenon could probably be explained scientifically.

In July, a couple from South Carolina reported seeing the face of Jesus Christ on a Walmart receipt.

Other sources have also reported cases in which Jesus’ face reportedly appeared on objects like a frying pan, tree trunk or a piece of toast.

Furthermore, RN, more detail on why your cult is not Christian is in its basic Brahministic philosophy: your group self-declare your own salvation, and the OPC preaches that church members do not get Judged - and they are the only ones who are resurrected which is a substitute for Judgement. As well, the OPC teaches covenant succession, which is the doctrine that church members' children are saved regardless of whether or not they are even Christian.

Mar 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.

Check out your pastors and prophets comign along 1900 years after Christ to create your group's polytheist philosophy

It does not say that you are a nut or a paranoid person.

But, if a person IS; then no doubt it will mean quite a lot to them!

We Catholics have a burden not shared by Protestants, to bear all things,to endure all things, and when we see gross injustice from our antagonists to remember that we also are unjust.

It's that darn gross JUSTICE that gets me every time!

As Christians, we should learn to laugh more.

We will be forming a “PERSONALLY INSULTED AND DEEPLY OFFENDED” caucus later in the day, if you would like to join in, hit the abuse button repeatedly, the mods will sign you up.

Suggest you get in early as the list is likely to be quite large.

“As Christians, we should learn to laugh more”.

I must admit that since I've been here I have laughed a great deal, so much so that I hardly feel the need to ask, “Are you serious?” anymore.

Well, it's back to reading the knee slappers and guffaws that keep us rolling in the aisles.

LOL! Please add “OUTRAGED” to the caucus wording, or those won’t feel like they can join in.

If you can “LOL” your application must be rejected. The truly, deeply offended cannot laugh lest they, in their paranoia, feel all are laughing at them.

I'll not name names, the list of The Eternally Exercised would be too long but they can be recognized by the tiny clenched fists and little black boots stamping.
Through squinty eyes they see a world that they would correct if only they were in charge, so this Patron of the Personal demands from the authority of his imaginarily beribboned bosom,

“Answer the question!”.

So replace that smile with a sneer and you might get past the mods (whom you must also believe don't like you).

A sort of “Lamentations Canteen”. Where everybody knows your pain. Where every night is Karoake night and the most requested song is “Nobody Knows De’ Trouble I Seen”. Followed by clicking fingers and shouts of “You Woe, Girl”...is the norm...

My apologies for not acting on this earlier. What a great idea!

I feel deeply offended and personally insulted that you didn’t notify me sooner. No effort now will undo that. In fact your efforts and apologies also (DOPI.Deeply Offend Personally Insult) me and so I’m not only hitting the abuse button but abusing the hit button.
We know where you post.

Maybe that’s just the woman’s reflection. Could be, yeah...
