Happy Friday the 13th, The Salvation of Jason Part One

This idea is actually an expanded version of an early cartoon I did where Jason from Friday the 13th is offered salvation. Part two is coming this weekend. It was influenced by the supposed conversions of serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer. If Christianity is so concerned about morality how is it that one can kill for a lifetime and then accept the forgiveness of Christ (with sincerity) and escape any sort of just punishment? Dahmer and Bundy both met with Christian leaders before their deaths and were ┬áby certain reports renewed in their faith. So Albert Schweitzer, who didn’t believe that Jesus was God, but was an amazing humanitarian is rotting in hell while Dahmer and Bundy who butchered innocent people are singing hallelujah in heaven simply because they accepted Christ’s salvation?

You can deny that Dahmer and Bundy went to heaven because maybe they weren’t sincere, but Christianity would still allow for their salvation if they were. Hell, the Apostle Paul was a murderer before he converted. There’s a time to forgive in certain circumstances when a crime has been paid for in this life, but salvation is twisted. It allows for too much and, to me, that is why it is unethical to let another man-god take the blame for your sins. How blood atonement, literal blood spilling, forgives sins doesn’t make any sense to begin with. I offended God with my sin and therefore he has to kill something (animal or Jesus) to make up for it? Imagine if we followed that moral example in our modern society? You offend me and I get to kill your pet in order to forgive you. What kind of God is so powerless that he can’t forgive, that he can’t renew his creation without bloodshed?

Could it be just superstition–Happy Friday the 13th. Defy superstition!
