Skip to comments.'Jesus Appeared on My Nintendo,' Maryland Woman Claims

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 wasnt 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.
Curious, are you a Christian?
What an odd question. Am I saved by the finished work of Christ? YES. Which is what a Christian is. Are you a Christian?
Why is it an odd question? I asked you a simple question, so why so snarky?
Yes, I am Christian. See how simple an answer can be?
I thought whoever that represents had a glass eye.
No snarkiness intended. I was just curious as to why you would ask such a question.
Because I wanted to know, does that bother you?
yeah, there’s got to be a reason that one hurt so much...
The grace of God to save me from my sins by the finished work of Jesus Christ would be no reason to be “bothered”. It is something to be shouted. To be lost and then found, to be blind and now see the love of God toward us while we were yet sinners? Hardly something someone would be bothered by when asked the question if he/she is a Christian.
I know what it means to be Christian, you really took one simple little question and went down the “cuckoo for coco puffs” road.
I thought so..
Thanks — have you had a look at post 42? Now that is “making it personal”
True as one individual post, yet a consistent posting of that type isn’t...
Exactly. It's a simple question for you or me, monty as Christians to answer. However for non-Christians...
Yes, you would think an intelligent person would realize their constant stream of threads make them and FR look bad.
Is it ignorance or done intentionally? I guess it doesn’t really matter in the end.
You know, some peopleno one here on FR, of course, but some peoplemight think that a distinction between (a) insulting through indirection, and (b) insulting directly, is either moronic or hypocritical. No one on FR would think such a thing, of course. Here on FR it is abundantly clear that a statement such as, Cannibalism is part of the Catholic faith is in *no* way insulting toward any Catholic, because no specific person is directly indicated.
Here it is obvious that a statement such as, Do you know, a person could go mad, believing there is a conspiracy behind every corner... Theyre out to get me...famous last words of a nut. is in *no* way a statement that the person to whom the poster is speaking (a) is insane, (b) believes that there is a conspiracy behind (sic) every corner, (c) suffers from delusions of persecution (Theyre out to get me), and (d) is a nut; which is to say, insane (again).
Everyone else in the known universe would take such a statement in exactly that way, but here on FR we know differently; we know that there is a clear distinction between insulting a person indirectly like that and directly insulting them, for instance by using the words, you are (such and such). The first type of insult is perfectly acceptable, while the second constitutes making it personal. Some peopleno one here on FR, of course, but some peoplemight say something stupid like, Since the person is equally insulted in either case, whats the difference? We know better, of course. We know that the indirect insult is perfectly civil.
Further, despite the fact that prefacing a statement with words such as you know, or do you know, is not an inquiry regarding the listeners knowledge, but is rather shorthand for, Are you aware of the fact(s) that , at least in the English language as spoken on planet Earth, here on FR those words indicate that whatever follows is a questioneven when it is in the form of a statement. Of course, no one on FR would dream of pointing those things out, because to do so might give rise to the totally mistaken impression that the speaker is implying that the moderators are either biased or stupid, or both, and we all know that cant be true.
Yes, it is a great comfort to know that, here on FR, anyone can say anything they like about us so long as they have their copy of Quotes of Oscar Wilde ready to hand, and so long as they are able to couch their insults as indirections that *seem* to be directed at no specific person (wink wink, nudge nudge). It is a great comfort to know that however obvious it may be that those indirections are in fact insults directed at a specific poster, the mask will remain in place, and no sanctions will be levied.
Some peopleno one here on FR, of coursemight go so far as to think, mistakenly and maliciously, that the level of the posts and the intelligence of the posters have declined markedly over the past ten years (What kind of loon would think that, eh?), and mightastounding as it may be, and remember that no one here on FR would think such a thingthink that the completely hypothetical and fictional style of moderating not described above was a major factor in that completely imaginary flight of those who make the totally unreasonable request of intellectual honesty in moderation.
Some people, eh?
I’m confused. In Sunday School we sang a song that stated “Zaccheus was a wii little man and a wii little man was he”
Some people, eh?
