ash bah
Wonderful capture Thomas ! Thank you:)
Nice lighting… psychedelic if I may say so…
Very cool how you got that "Sunday Morning in Vegas" effect : )
I wish I knew how you get so vivid colors in your photos. Every time I look at your work I wish I had the skill.
Good old Jesus...what was he saving it for d'you think?
nice Thomas, Yo Ash I believe Mohammed was a man, not a prophet sent from God. How does that make you feel. The same as your statement made me feel. Why do people have to trash the Christian faith, dude enjoy the picture, and shut up.
So that's the guy using 2-for-1 coupons in front of me in the express lane!
it is so awesome i wish i could take goood picture
I also believe Isa prophet. And I believe Muhammad s.a.w prophet as the last prophet. :-)

I also believe Isa prophet. And I believe Muhammad s.a.w prophet as the last prophet. :-)

Brother Adrian, we respect all religions, you do not recognize that Muhammad was a messenger and recognize only Jesus. we acknowledge them together as a prophet. And Mohammed is the last of the prophets and messengers sent to all people. Then you have to ask protection from Allah(God) he is the alone who is capable of everything.
love it i'm almost done reading the rise of pentecostalism and i just love their views this coming from a catholic
i want jesus to come back. Is he done saving yet? Id like for him to spend some of his spiritual wealth and help mankind I'm ready already!
From the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?

George Nelson: "Jesus saves! But George Nelson withdraws!"
when i die... i know ill go to heaven to be with jesus and my lost family
otra vez marketing con la fe que pena
Great photo!
Sad truth is when you die it will be just like the other 4.5 billion or so years the world has been around before you came into existence... absolutely nothing.
+Zineb Ben With all respect back to you,this is a quote from the Bible, 1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
John was the apostle of Christ. I'm done, choose to it or not, whatever.
What you believe is not what I believe so let it go.
+Adrian Rodriguez i said that i respect all religions yes or not!! But i don't love the way that u answer +ash bah despite he is u have your bible we have our "Coran" too that told us :"there are just one God "Allahhh" i think that your bible also told that but .......Finnally with all respect . it's a verse of coran=====>(لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ (الكافرون 6)===> translate it.
I love that this picture is featured in the what is hot feed! :)
Composition is sweet, looks like it came out of a horror movie.
Nice shot, Thomas! Love the drama of the clouds! Appears the comments have added a little extra drama as well!
+Zineb Ben the difference between Jesus Christ and Muhammed: Jesus declared himself the "Son of God," Muhammed did not. Jesus was born of a Virgin, Muhammed was not. Jesus was persecuted by men in the redemption of mankind, Muhammed waged war on his fellow man in the Conquest to build a kingdom. Jesus is GOD and Muhammed is a man. Jesus has an empty tomb whereby no man can visit him cause He is still Alive, Muhammed has a shrine and tomb whereby many pilgrimage his DEATH! These are the things which you deny.....Jesus said that those who deny Him before man, He shall also deny them before His Father.....I will pray for you Zineb Ben that you will become apart of the eternal life and light of God and not your FALSE prophet.....your "Coran" speaks not of these differences for I have read it........
So Zineb let me see if I can get this right, the Coran says Jesus' is a prophet, is it normal for prophets to say or tell lies, because that is what you are saying. Jesus himself says, he is the way and the truth and life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. He is and no one else, sorry not my words. So if you have a issue, take it up with whatever God you pray to. The truth shall set you free, do I hear a amen.
That sky is spectacular!
the background of clouds give this message a dramatic appeal! Great picture, tks :)
LOL people fighting over who's delusions /stupidity is better than the others. I love when believers fight over fairy tales. Grow up guys and stop believing in fairy tales that have no evidence
Delusions is what Hitler what is feeding on when he was exterminating the Jews, you want to believe in nothing fine, that is your right, but remember evil feeds on those exact ideas and uses it for its primary goal.
+Adrian Rodriguez Your right. Hitler was subscribing to the Catholic delusion. I hope you did read Mein Kempf. The rest is all straw man.
You do seem to stir it up Mr. Hawk :)
Great shot. The colorful, turbulent sky is awesome.
and about recitation what?
Jesus saves: the rest of you take full damage.

Jesus saves. He puts 10% of his income into a savings plan.
I think it's possible he may have existed.
Jesus saves, but we also need to make sure our spirits are whole.

Too many people forget that it takes both acts AND faith. One without the other is dead.
+Maddie Parkerson You don't know shit. You have faith, but there is zero evidence of a god. Nothing more dangerous than a person claiming to know all the answers when in fact they have no idea.
I'm pretty sure Jesus bases who He lets into heaven based on the heart. I'm looking forward to shaking Ghandi's hand. :P
+Nathaniel Lamb and +Adrian Rodriguez MoHamed is my prophet and yours Prophet and the prophet of all people in this life !! And There are One God Is Allah who don't Have a son.Just Open You eyes before the day comes when there is no where to run and hide.and what you believe is not what i'm beleive .if you don't know who is the Prophet Mohamed plz don't talking about Him that will be best !!!! you have some false ideas try to correct them .
+Jason Sick, you know just as much as she does. There is truly no reason to swear, man.

Faith is exactly that, a belief!

We all have the right to believe what we wish. Respect hers too.
i find it VERY funny, when people talk crap and complain to people saying theres no evidence of God. just cause you dont believe in him dorsnt mean hes not real. FAITH is our one connection to him. and if you dont have it then theres a reason for that.
If I want light, I will flip on a light switch. Other than that, good picture.
les photos sont admirables !!! on reconnait vite l'esprit et le gout subtile et grandiose cher aux américains!!! bravo.
The blood of Christ shed on the cross and the resurrection showing God's power over death still resonates with humanity as much today as it did 2000 years ago!
I think Satan does full drive imaging to an off-site server. Thinking of switching... ;)
What bank does Jesus use?
Jesus é a luz desse mundo ! nasce sobre nós trazendo cura em tuas asas `` Jesus the love ´´
+Adrian Rodriguez +Zineb Ben Please, lets argue over whether the Easter Bunny or Santa Clause is real. Because there is exactly the same amount of evidence that they exists as either of your gods that you are carrying on over.
I feel like Tom Waits has been here
Haha - love the fiery clouds behind this sign... Sets the mood quite nicely... ;-)
Geoff S
lololol santa is more real than YOU are. youre just ryan thompson, intern at be-a-douche llc. santa has affected my and thousands of younger kids like me in more tangible and calculable ways than you ever could or will. so who's really the one who doesnt exist, santa? or you?
+Adrian Rodriguez as i told before What i believe is not what you beleive i wanna just one thing respect other religions and don't talk something false About Mohamed SAW.and coze i'm a muslim i should express my ideas and defend my religion and my beliefs that all.
Ryan Thompson, that is completely messed up what you posted. Is this where you wanna be when jesus comes back?
Look at all the drones swarming to defend their mythical magic skybeard.
Great Photo
and for background the heavens
GREAT Composition !!!!!
The Henri Cartier Bresson effect
-The Decisive Moment
I tip of my hat my friend
Good work.
Lol, religion. Saying there is only one god and that you know anything about him is massively egotistical. No one knows, most people just kid themselves.
To Sara Talita:

That's right I love jesus and I love Mohamed !!! are your known why?

Because they are messengers of الله !.

The question is: Are you know that there is just one "god" الله no more, and there is not has or have a children or woman,

Allah said in the koran karim

"In the name of God the Merciful
Say God is One (1) Allah, the Eternal (2) He begetteth not (3) did not have a stop (4)".
Yeah, but ...Espo scores on the rebound.

I'm surprised that at almost 150 comments in, somebody didn't get there before me.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten, Son of God. John 3:16-18 "love your pic and the kingdom opportunities it has opened. God obviously give you this talent for the glory of his kingdom. Great job well done" Love all serve one
Matt V
It's obvious to me that religion divides us & fuels hate. Believe what you want just keep it to yourself. No one cares what you believe except you & you shouldn't care what others believe. Like the sign says, Jesus saves, not you. 
+Adrian Rodriguez Your way to talk is really bad!!! Try to ask yourself why you have this migraine!!!
When Jesus was on earth he was put to death by popular vote, why do we wonder why more people don't believe in him? They already tried to kill him.
all letters are connected to each other shows truely connection is very important for us..............
Jesus kills, and absorbs your soul lol
Awesome picture Thomas!!! No use fighting about who is who...We all have the right to religion. I know who the King of King's is.....Don't argue about it...Just put it out there like Thomas did!! :p
+Justin Johnson I have seen no evidence in my life that any deity or deities exists. The interesting thing is that no one else has either. So I think it's safe to assume there is not going to be some magical zombie coming back from the grave.

The term 'god work in mysterious ways' exists solely because the universe is consistent with there not being a god. If there were a god, innocent children wouldn't be raped, and bad men would be punished. But this isn't the case, so even if there were a god, he's no friend of mine.

Speaking of saving, there are many overdue bills to prove that His life style wasn't very well heeded.
Wow! Jesus saved the Pentecostal Church. Amazing
ha! not in this economy ..thats hilarious...LOL
There are pennies in Oakland?
Hello people of the world just 1 thing: Jesus is your only ticket to heaven if you don't have 1 you don't get in.
He that cometh from above is above all; he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth: and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the spirit in measure unto him. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:31-36
I wonder how old that sign is?
Don't get me wrong I am Christian! But that sign looks like a place vampires show up. Oh I get it...its a trap! Vampires show up buzapp power of the lord suckers!
Well he's either working a tax fiddle or has an offshore account.
ash bah
I love prophit issa (jesus) and i liked this pic but i was more focus for jesus word ............. All i want to say that Muslims belive in jesus but christians DON'T belive in our prophet MOHAMMED thats it
Moody -- and a bit foreboding. Nice image.
allright thats it
Looks like it says chunrch. Learn to spell, snakehandlers.
+ash bah As a Christian I believe that Mohammed was real, I just don't believe in what he wrote down. As a Christian I also believe that Jesus was God and that if he was just a prophet then he was a very evil man who destroyed many peoples lives. You can only truly believe one of three things about Jesus. 1. He was either a liar: He called himself God, He told people he was the only way. 2. He was a lunatic: He actually believed he was God but wasn't and therefore was crazy, but believeable enough that thousands followed him even unto their deaths, or 3. he was Lord: He is exactly what he said he was, that "I and the father are one" or "I AM" (which is what he said to the pharasees that made them want to stone him on the spot). I don't see any other way to view who Jesus was.
Ugh, why are the religious so annoying? Must you turn a nice piece of photography into a holy war? No one gives a crap what your beliefs are.
great pic it means that jesus can save you from an eternity in hell.
sorry little busy with being relational with god, notice i didnt say religouse.thank god for being a good god. believe in this crap!?

Cross religion bickering is so so funny. Its like Jerry Springer but arguing stuff from 2000 years ago. Like any of you know what happened. Your only reading scripts written by Shepard's high on opium.
hmmmm...looks like a church sign in vegas, alright.....
+Nick Janaway are you trying to tell me it is silly to believe in something that I have 100% zero evidence of existing? Now thats preposterous! Blasphemy I say!
foto muito bonita e idealista do ponto de vida cristao gostei evidencia a fe e a indentidade dos pentecostais e mais ainda o salvador jesus
All religions pray to the same God, unknowingly. As a student of the mystic arts, I have experienced God in a personal way. Is there a God?. yes. Is he floating around on a throne? no. God is much more then mankinds feeble attempts to classify him. Anthropomorphism is a child like understanding to something we do not understand yet. If science is able calculate the 12 dimensions, then science may begin to understand God.
well they got one thing right JESUS DOES SAVE!!!!!!!!!
maybe he was saving to buy ra a present, lol
Jesus saves through his shed blood, for without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
That is the problem with Mohammed, he did not make a way for sins to be forgiven and for humanity to be reconciled to God, only Jesus, as God's beloved son has done this.
+Wally Palen One that gives hope to millions daily, that provides them with an answer to why they are here, lets them find purpose in even the most terrible seasons of life, and perpetually causes miracles to happen. Jesus is real and He's alive and very much experiential. I wouldn't say that if I hadn't experienced it myself again and again and again. I like this documentary called "The Finger of God", cause I have experienced some of those things myself. The Finger of God Intro Part 1 of 11! Don't Miss This Folks!
If I open this thread, will I see a bunch arguments? Let's find out...

Yup. Idiots being idiots, I suppose. This is a simple photograph by the extraordinary +Thomas Hawk. There is no debate here. It's just a fucking sign.
For those of you that want salvation: First accept that you are a sinner, we are all sinners. The Bible says "For all have sinned,; and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3;23" " As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: Romans3:10" No one is perfect, no one has lived up to Gods perfect standard. Second you must accept as a sinner we owe a penalty, "For the wadges of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life though Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23" "... the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Ezekiel 18:4b" " And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire, This is the second death. Revelations 20:14" If we pay what we owe as sinners, we must spend an eternity in the lake of fire (Hell). Third you must believe that Jesus Christ paid that debt for our sins, The perfect sacrifice, the Lamb of God, spotless, without sin, Son of God! " for when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6" "...that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. Hebrews 2:9b" Christ was not a sinner, and the Bible teaches that God took all of our sin and placed it on Christ. While Christ was bearing all of our sins in his own body, God punished him in our place to pay the debt we owe. This is not something God promised to do. It is something God has already done. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16" "He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. II Corinthians 5:21" Talkin about walkin in some one elses shoes! It is a fact, Jesus Christ has already paid your sin debt. Fourth you must accept by faith what Jesus Christ did for you. 90 times in the gospel of John it says "BELIEVE" "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:36" The word "believe" means to trust, to depend on, to rely on. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ means that you accept the fact that you are a sinner, that as a sinner you owe the sin penalty, and that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the debt you owe. But it means going one step further. It means that you will completely trust Christ to get you to heaven-that you will put the matter of your salvation in His hands and depend on Him for everlasting life. The moment you do this God promises you are not condemned but have everlasting life and that you shall never perish. " Verily, verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. John 5:24" If you want to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, pray this simple prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, I Know I am a sinner, and I deserve to pay my own sin debt, but I do believe that you died for me to pay the debt that I owe, Today, the best I Know how, I trust you as my Saviour. I will depend on you from this moment on for my salvation. Now help me to live for you and to be a good Christian. Amen. Great! If you prayed this prayer and meant it with your whole heart, go tell some body. Go talk to someone that will help you in the new path you have just embarked on. May God bless you and use you for the rest of your days.
No need for that wall of text, +Marie Lovato. No one is going to read it, firstly, and no one needs to, anyway. Secondly, this is an inappropriate time (like usual) and thirdly, you're forcing your religion on others.
Jesus saves ... rebound ... Gretzky scores!
actually jesus pbuh was a muslim not a christian.i want to inform that there christian word not exist in the bible.he was one of almighty messenger of god and he never claimed divinity i challenge to all christian people who can show verse of bible which jesus himself said i,m god and worship me.
+Shaikh Azhar

John 5:17, 18
17But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

18Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.
You all will know the truth when we're in doomsday(akhirat). And it's too late to repellent. :-)
Believe Allah the only one god.
So you're letting a book written 2000 years ago written by a nomadic Shepard with no education dictate your life!?...seems legit
Actually the guy didn't write anything. But I agree with you.
I wonder how many of these #JesusSaves signs there are around the country?
"For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. II Peter 1:21" "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. II Timothy 3:16" " But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and he is a rewarder to them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6"
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and scorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake of fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelations 21:8" Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6"
+Mark Rooney nomadic Shepard? where do you get this, most of the New Testament was written by Paul who was an apostle and before that a Govt Dignitary and Hunter of Jewish Outlaws(known as Saul during that time in his life), Moses was a Prince(Old Testament), David was a King(Old Testatment), Daniel was a prophet(Old Testament), Isaiah was a prophet(Old Testament), Most of the Disciples were Galilean Fishermen (this would include suspected Authors Peter, John, James, & Timothy) Mathew was a Tax Collector, Luke was a Physician....where do you get Nomadic Shepard and the use of opium???? LOL! Don't knock the book if you don't even read it, which gives you little credibility and demonstrates ignorance....Give something other than material distractions a chance. Also understand that many have read the Bible(who don't believe in it) and still gained from its incredible wealth of wisdom in Law, Economics, Philosophy, and Science.......
+Guiga Friedenberg If I recall correctly from my studies at a Lutheran college, no one who actually met Jesus actually wrote about him, with the closest documentation happening some 40+ years after his death.
So if I told you that mein kamf was really about socio-economical trends in the thirties written by hitler is actually not about his plans to rule all of Europe under fascism does that embody it as is simply opinion...that's it, BUT my opinion is actually supported by proven facts...your move
Hey pal...if you don't want to hear it...I don't know have you tried leaving?
Can I get get something straight , what I said earlier, I believe in Jesus as God NOT A PROPHET
This is a very interesting conversation! I see those with faith and those that do not have faith in Jesus as the Son of God. This is exactly how it will be until the end of time according to scripture. The bible never says most people will be saved or that most people will inherit eternal life. It says the exact opposite will occur, this is the sad truth... We can't make anyone believe that Jesus is God's son and neither does God. Everything the bible says would happen eventually happened and now we wait for the return of Christ. Everyone that believes know this: Rom. 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Keep reading your bibles and pray for understanding. If you seek God you will find Him, he is close to all of us. He is the only living God and He will remain that way forever! He knows your struggles and your thoughts, trust in Him because he loves you and cares about you. Continue in your faith, love your neighbor and love him with all your heart, soul and strength! Praise be to King Jesus, the only begotten son of God!
That is hilarious,but you should not play with jesus like that.
+Adrian Rodriguez Correct, when I stated "If I recall correctly", I apparently had not. I should NOT have said that no one who wrote about him actually met him. I will admit my err, only a fool tries to change the facts to suit his reality. I should have stated: None that wrote the gospels, the core of the christian faith, had actually met Jesus.

Another fact, there is zero evidence that any god has ever existed.
I hope he's getting higher interest rates than I get at Citibank!
I agree with what Aaron said earlier on. It is true that if muslims do believe in Jesus as a prophet, they must believe that He was a false prophet or a lunatic because He did declare Himself as the "Son of God" and as the "Lord"/ "I AM", of which God does say He is "I AM" in the old testament. And Shaik Azhar you are partly right in saying Jesus was not a christian, but he was and still is Christ and then us, as his believers are christians (Christ-like). do you get it now?
And for those that are saying we should keep in it inside, that is not what the bible says. You can not be taught forever, you must also grow and be able to teach others and testify about what Jesus has done for you and help those who are lost because of false teachings and those those who dont know Christ. "'so much i can't contain it, 'so much I've gotta give it away..." thats how it should be!
