Ye of Little Faith

Not to be outdone by Pope Benedict, Jesus kicked off his 2008 World Tour with an appearance on a mirror in Orlando, Florida.

As far as His other appearances on tortillas, stained floors and various doors go, this one isn't bad. It's somewhere between a Magic Eye poster and a blurred photo in terms of me focusing on the image. Even so, "Jesus" appears to be bald and might actually look more like Muhammad. The apparition is certainly suggestive of Howie Mandel.

I'm not here to quibble about what's in the mirror. I am here to question why some folks are willing to sell Jesus short by believing that He has anything to do with these low budget miracles. Appearing on a mirror should be beneath him. It would be like Billy Graham appearing on the Home Shopping Network, but exponentially more indignant. Jesus is the man who rose from the dead, not a hack illusionist. Reassurance from a reflection on an Orlando hospital glass is hardly necessary for the truly faithful.

True. This is not needed for the true believer. However, you cannot deny what people, many people saw. If one person had said this happened, you could always say that he/she did not take his/her medication that day. If two people had said it, then you could say they were friends and maybe drunk. But so many people saw it that it is hard to believe it is not real unless everybody in the hospital was drunk or high. They took pictures, so the image was in the window. And I don't think the hospital administration allowed a magician to install his/her mirror and projector tricks to fool people. So, there is only one conclusion, right? You like it or you don't like it (I don't really care) he was there. You like it or not.
