Church Apologizes for ‘Breasted Jesus with Makeup’ saying ‘The Goal Was to Emphasize Diversity’

The Church of Iceland has apologized for a ‘woke’ ad showing a bearded, breasted Jesus wearing makeup, and has removed it from their social media pages. This despite it being evident this apostate Church has no idea why it was offensive and in fact, plans further blasphemies involving the Lord of Glory over the coming weeks.

Appearing less than a week ago, the advertisement appeared on the National Church’s Facebook page and was intended to welcome people to Sunday school, yet featured a jiggly Jesus dancing under a rainbow.

The cost of the ad was $14,716.70 and though removed from social media after intense backlash- little from within the Church itself- it will be featured on Reykjavík buses for several more weeks. The church has said in a statement:

“The 2020 Assembly of the National Church regrets that the picture of Jesus in a Sunday school advertisement has hurt people. The goal was to emphasize diversity, not to hurt people or shock them,”

The ‘Church of Iceland’ or the “National Church’ are both monikers for the ‘Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland’ which is the officially established Christian church in Iceland and is endorsed by the state. It supports women’s ordination, same-sex marriage, and abortion, and can be likened to the ELCA.

A media representative for the heretical denomination, Petur Georg Markan, explained that it was important to depict Jesus in drag in order to magnify diversity.

“In this one, we see a Jesus who has breasts and a beard. We’re trying to embrace society as it is. We have all sorts of people and we need to train ourselves to talk about Jesus as being ‘all sorts’ in this context.

Especially because it’s really important that each and every person see themselves in Jesus and that we don’t stagnate too much. That’s the essential message. So this is okay. It’s okay that Jesus has a beard and breasts.”

This non-church church has stated that while they are removing the transgendered Jesus, they do have another ad campaing planend from the samne agency which will feature “Jesus making a contribution to environmental issues.”

  1. It’s not like it’s really a Christ-centered Bible-believing church. Anyone going there has got to know it’s a completely apostate congregation. If it were me, I’d be more concerned with what a Holy God thought of this depiction of His only begotten Son, who loved humanity so much, that he was willing to suffer torture and be crucified just to reconcile us to Almighty God. Blasphemy knows no bounds.

  2. I visited Iceland four times and had a lot of admiration for the Icelanders. This “religious” abomination is making me rethink my position.

  3. Revelations warns that the majority of churches will be teaching Satanic blasphemy as the end times approach. This church is following the blueprint.

  4. Bankrupt that church. If you people do anything in your miserable lives, BANKRUPT THAT CHURCH! THEY KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING!

  5. What a world we live in. It’s unreal that this is even a thing. That this would even be considered as a good thing just shows the depravity of our world. God help us.

  6. In some twisted way church leaders think these woke trendy ideas will bring people into thier mostly empty churches. It dosnt work. Only the uncompromising Gospel of Jesus Christ can do that.

  7. They succeeded in emphasizing blasphemy. If they keep this type of stuff up they should seriously think about changing the name of their church from The Church of Iceland. It will be an oxymoron where they will end up.

  8. Apparently the apostate Laodicean church isn’t quite totally primed for the trans-Jesus idol image. Yet. Give them time though. The True Church will never bow her knee to the sexual deviants who seek to invade the Holy Kingdom of God and fill it with their perversions. We know that God doesn’t “evolve” on the issue of any kind of sin, sexual or not. The LGBTQ2ASP+++XYZ goats are bound for the same lake of fire that the unbelievers, cowards, liars, thieves, adulterers, drunkards, sorcerers (including druggies), murderers and idolaters are bound for, unless they repent and depart those ways, fleeing to the straight and narrow way: the True Lord Jesus Christ.
