I found this really cool piece of artwork online today.

cross

I think the person who created it is trying to be ‘ironic’ and make a critique on Christianity.

Yet I see this image and I am struck by the freedom that comes from ‘submitting’ to someone greater than yourself…and I’m also struck by the incompatibility of this kind of ‘freedom’ with the world’s understanding with ‘freedom’…which isn’t what it seems either.

I’m also left with the question, ‘Am I doing what the empty cross is telling me to do?’
