Poll question: is the recent work by @BitcoinApex–Bitcoin, The First Proclamation–sacrilege?
I’m curious to know what people think of this. I showed this artwork to a devout Christian ([https://www.bitcoinapexart.com/gallery?pgid=l52xmj8w1-d0758910-8ffb-4bad-b1a6-2c772ddfad62](https://www.bitcoinapexart.com/gallery?pgid=l52xmj8w1-d0758910-8ffb-4bad-b1a6-2c772ddfad62)) and this person responded by calling it sacrilege. Technically, perhaps it is sacrilege. On the other hand, the artist probably reveres the work of Satoshi Nakamoto and therefore drew this artwork to resemble that of da Vinci’s The Last Supper as a way to express that reverence. But, perhaps a Christian would say that *any* artwork resembling the painting of The Last Supper that is intended as reverence for something other than Christ would be sacrilege.
So… is this technically sacrilege?
who cares if it’s sacrilegious? only god can make that call.
jesus did many “sacrilegious” things in the eyes of the religious elite during his lifetime: working on the sabbath, eating with sinners, claiming to be the son of god etc.
they killed him – which should tell you everything about religious people that think they speak for god.
Religions and various characters within them only exist in people’s minds. They are passed down from generation to generation. Why didn’t you talk to a “devout Greek” who believes in Zeus and Mars, and Poseidon? Because those are kinda less believable gods nowadays?
It’s a neurological condition to keep believing in some random invented deity. So no. Nobody with a working brain cares. Offending fictional characters isn’t a problem, at least in some parts of the world.
God really don’t care for this. Really don’t.
I am very religious and I think Bitcoin has a very significant connection to the life and death of Jesus, hear me out.
The most violent action we know of that Jesus did was when he overturned the tables of the money changers and drove them from the temple, within a week he was crucified. I firmly believe that this confrontation with the money changers was one of the primary reasons he was killed as he had caused a major disruption in the business of money and those in control of it at that time. It’s like destroying the Fed, anyone who would be capable of that would certainly have very powerful enemies, there is a reason Satoshi chose to remain anonymous.
It is said the the love of money is the root of all evil. Right now the Fed has total control of a fraudulent fiat money system and all that power is concentrated in the hands of very few evil men. Bitcoin by it’s design is decentralized and therefore distributes the power of money, potentially, over a much wider base and therefore dilutes the potential evil power of money. Plus bitcoin is governed by the sovereign universal laws of mathematics, rather that the whims of the few behind the emerald curtain.
Much evil in this world could be put into check if not eradicated if we the people simply chose to place our value in the blockchain rather than a particular form of paper.
Also I find it interesting that the first country to really embrace bitcoin is named ‘El Salvador’ which means ‘the savior’ and is named after Jesus. I like this art piece.
I hope so. Blasphemy and heresy should be mandatory
