It’s an Easter miracle! A youth minister in Houston thinks he might have found the image of Jesus Christ in a Cheeto. Steve Cragg of Memorial Drive United Methodist Church said he was eating a bag of Cheetos when he came across what he originally thought looked like a dog. After turning it sideways, Steve saw the image of Jesus Christ. His students have named it Cheesus and Steve keeps it in a special box.
He said, “Please know that I am not making light of Easter or religion. I do not think that God makes Cheetos that look like Jesus or creates images of Himself on screen doors. I do know that God reveals Himself to us in a zillion different ways. Seeing the image of Christ in a Cheeto means that I was able to imagine it. God’s creation is full of signs and things that can and do remind us of Him.”
It’s a little too early for April Fool’s jokes. I stared at Cheesus for a good 5 minutes and all I see is a Cheeto that I would love to eat. I sort of see George Washington with a rifle, but I do not see Jesus. I just don’t have the gift in me.
We have finally found something Brit Brit can devote her entire life to. She will give up everything, move to Texas and spend her days worshiping at the altar of Cheesus.
