Churchdoor Jesus (or whatever you want to see)

Every so often, several times a year, people see Jesus in woodgrain.

Church members say face of Jesus appears on their door – FOX Carolina 21.

One Upstate parish says Jesus is making his presence known, right inside their church walls.

Some members said the face of Jesus appears on a door to their sanctuary.

At Care Baptist Church in Duncan, there are many images of Jesus but none as special as the one members see in the wood grain of a door next to the pulpit.

“God wanted it out for some reason, maybe he wanted people to see he’ll still perform miracles,” said Wiatt.

This is COMPLETELY dependent on your belief. Wood grain OFTEN looks like faces. We all find faces in non-facelike objects if we look hard enough. It’s the way our brain is programmed. Of course, the church officials would be delighted if you came by the church to see it (and give a donation…)

Who KNEW what Jesus looked like anyway? How do they know? They don’t know, they just believe.

    Actually, looking a third and fourth time, that is actually a pretty cool looking bit of wood grain. You could imagine several faces there, if you wanted to.

    I thought it was a guy with a giant handlebar mustache.

    I immediately thought of Aslan, but then it began to look more like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland (or at least one version of it). Without the ears, of course.

    “God wanted it out for some reason, maybe he wanted people to see he’ll still perform miracles,” Like what- appearing on varius surfaces? In the clouds? At your local Home Depot?

    Some miracles. Meh. Too lazy to take on killers, crooks, and the like…

    It looks like one of the lion people from the Doctor Who episode: Warriors Gate.

    Better miracle than protecting 20 kindergarteners & 6 teachers from a guy with a gun?
