The following post comes from Westminster Seminary West blog, entitled Valiant For Truth:

An image of Jesus? Jesus or Duane Allman on a Walmart Receipt?

A recent story appeared on the web about an image of “Jesus” appearing on a Walmart receipt. You can find the story and image here. No one wants to question the sincerity of the couple who believe God blessed them. But is it impolite to ask the question, How do they know it’s Jesus? Admittedly, it is odd how the apparent image of a man’s face can appear on a piece of toast or a Walmart receipt, but who is to say that it must be Jesus? Why not one of the Allman Brothers? How does anyone outside of the first-century witnesses who personally observed the ministry of Christ know what the Savior looks like? Why can’t these purported images be a number of bearded figures from history?

  1. To be honest, when I first saw it, I thought the WalMart receipt had more of a Charles Manson look to it.  These things seem more demonic than divine. 

  2. Oh, that Wal-mart receipt! It all becomes clear to me.

    Man, I really ought to get a TV so I can keep up on all this important news.

    Nevertheless, that is an excellent question. Thanks for posting the quote.
