This week, I decided to just lay it all out there over at my cartoon site, CREACHER. Jesus is Greater… For more info, click the toons.


I started to think about what it means to have it all. This set of Creacher toons spells it out,


While I’m on a cartooning kick, I thought I’d share a little preview of Creacher. Sometimes the words come first, but in this case I just started off by drawing the characters and let them speak. I just started to look at the things I know and the things I wanted to share. These are some of the things I know and now you know them too.


Spoiler alert…
If you subscribe to my webcomic Creacher, you may not want to look at this post, or maybe you’ll want to take the sneak peak.
I started off thinking I was going to do a lot of quotes from other people and decided I would just do my own. These are some heartfelt (and hopefully humorous or thought provoking) ideas that I hope will touch and bless you.

What do you do when you’re out of ideas and you need to create. One of my favorite things is to hit the Scriptures. Case in point, this week I was having difficulty coming up with the content for next week’s Creacher cartoons. Where oh where could I find short pithy sayings for cartoon “gags.” Well considering I want them to be humorous but with a solid point, why not the book that holds some of the great wisdom of all time, the book of Proverbs? I am reading through them as part of my devotions right now and before long I had a week’s worth of cartoons written and ready to go.

The Word of God is a great source for Christian creative projects of all kinds. The trick though is knowing what’s in there and where you can find it. Of course there are tons of sources for finding what you’re looking for in the Bible, but there is one thing that will trump them all…

Picking it up and reading it.

So Hit the Word. You’ll be glad you did.

My church is doing trunk or treat and I decided to decorate my trunk with one of my favorite things to create, creatures. I have always loved making creatures because the possibilities are endless. You can literally create anything you want. For the longest time I could not see how this connected with my faith, but then one day I was preparing to preach in a “King James Only” church. My text revolved around 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation…” Well in the King James, “new creation” is translated “New Creature.” There was my answer. I could use the creatures I create to talk about being a new creature in Christ. After a few false starts, I settled on the name CREACHER because it combined Creature and Preacher, and also it had reacher in the name and that was my intent, to use creachers to reach people for the Kingdom. Well I decided to ramp up CREACHER and give out cards to the site along with my candy. The new version includes a meme, a coloring sheet and a color download available free on the site. You can see them for yourself at the CREACHER website along with my pop art and some other cartoons.

This one made me think of the old joke:
Q: “How do you keep an idiot in suspense?”
A: “I’ll tell you tomorrow.”
I know it’s a little mean and yet it’s funny in a strange sort of way. It’s a little deception, a little bait and switch, a set up. You bite on this one thinking you are going to hear a funny joke, but you don’t realize that if you fall for the joke, you will be the butt of it. Fall for it and you get burned.

That’s sort of how sin is. You bite on temptation thinking you are going to experience some pleasure. but if you fall for it, you get burned by it. There are lots of set ups in life that aren’t funny at all. Be careful what you fall for. Temptation can leave you feeling like an idiot.
