    Wow. Interesting!

    It was before you read the bible...?

    That looks to be Jesus drawing all men to him. The words " seven deadly sins" have been crossed out, which is an interesting theme - the Cross crossed out/ canceled our sins. It shows what the cross did for us without even using a picture of the cross. I like it.

    And then there is satan looking up from hell, seeing souls saved. He looks angry. He looks like he's saying...oh cr#p!

    i see the Dragon and the beast, top right, in hell. I haven't picked out the false prophet.

    I hope I win because I'd like to see this close up!

    Oh and in the top picture, the Dragon looks as though he's being cast out of some opening...

    That top, the swirliness, looks a bit like...is it Picasso I'm thinking of? Starry, starry night-ish...

    I keep coming back to look some more. There is a layer of blue above and underneath that looks like...war in heaven.

    There is something disturbing about it that reminds me of The Scream. Forget artists name...Edward Munch, I think his name was.

    But disturbing does not mean bad for an artist. It means you have evoked feeling and emotion from a viewer. That's a good thing. :)

    There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among brothers. My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother; Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck. When you walk about, they will guide you; When you sleep, they will watch over you; And when you awake, they will talk to you.
    Proverbs 6:16‭-‬22 NASB

    Beautiful poster! What it makes me think of is Jesus coming back and putting an end to sin on earth... like end times. The swirls of color remind me of God's glory and since it is night time and there is lightening, it makes me think this represents judgement upon those who did not trust in Jesus for salvation, including the devil being cast into Hell for final judgement. It looks like Hell is closing up also, bringing me to conclude that this is the end and death/sin has completely lost.

    Also it almost looks like the devil is bowing to God. It says in Revelation that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Amen.

    - For your Interpretations, for linking Proverbs 6:16-22 you are both in the draw.
    -Yes was created before i had known the Bible. Off Memory, there is about 103 Characters All together.

    I dont give my address out over internet, but I love thinking about art like this. Especially pieces like this. Very good and thought provoking. So you can take me out of the draw. :)

    There is this tattoo shop not even a block from my house, and they have all of these beautiful paintings in the window. Some like this, one is the Lord's Supper, just really cool. I don't know if I am allowed to take a picture of them, but I should ask. I think yall would like to take a look. He is selling them for like 300- 1000 dollars. And I am thinking he isn't going to have much luck in this small community. But it is so cool during my morning.walk with my daughter to look at the art and animals (there.is a little conservatory with animals in the window too near where.I live) and get my coffee. I have the best neighborhood. Lol

    Reminds me a bit of a video of Phatfish's 'There is a day', about the Lord's coming... :)

    Hi; so did you ever use that parlor?

    Sounds like they partly specialize in faith based designs, anyway.

    I realized that you asked what your thinking was behind the painting, and I didn't answer!

    So...I think...You were going on what you had heard said: that Jesus took away our sin, and were pondering why a church would talk about seven deadly sins IF that were true.

    @Mayflower : The environment in which one gets tattooed is very significant, which you'll know already if you've used the tattoo parlor that you've mentioned. Sounds like the artist/owner himself is very much into more than one way of expressing his art; but also he seems to understand the importance of a faith friendly environment that is tasteful.

    Farouk you have made me laugh. Do you want my opinion on tattoos as with cigarettes? ☺

    The answer as to whether a tattoo is sin lies in the heart motivation of the person., but then you already knew that. ☺

    Actually the focus of Mayflower's post was more on the artwork displayed, not necessarily specific to tattoos, but anyway.

    Oh, excuse me then! I like artwork. And I like artwork that is biblical. ☺

    I didn't mean I was laughing in a bad way either. You feel people out. It's endearing.
