An artist by the name of Cutthroat pastes Houston city streets with posters. After noticing a few of his posters on corner electric boxes throughout the city, I decided to do some mild research on the artist to see if I could get a sense of his spiritual beliefs. I found little info online, other than a few other posters on Flickr and an interview on artist views of street art. Nevertheless, I wanted to mention these two posters that recently caught my attention.
This first poster caught my eye on my way to work because just days earlier, a friend and I had been discussing how some religions have deviated so far from Truth that they have come to worship death – one form called Santa Muerte. It saddens me when I think of Satan so devilishly laughing at all the people he’s deceiving through false idols like Santa Muerte. Satan wants to be like God, so when people worship and welcome him (like they do when they worship Santa Muerte), he’s all over it! (Lucifer rebelled against God and sought to take God’s place: Isaiah 14:12-21)
Then, just a few days after seeing the first poster, a few blocks away I saw this other one. Awesome! I was much more excited about this poster, as it references Jesus, the true image to rightful worship! (Read another post about this poster here)
I don’t know much about street art here in Houston or Cutthroat’s intent in all his art, but if he wants to publicly display posters of Jesus around the city, then I’m all for it!
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
April 3, 2012 UPDATE: The Santa Muerte poster on Wheeler was stripped down several months ago and replaced with the “they all on me” poster of Jesus. Yes, all our sins were upon Jesus. Receive His gift of love by the precious blood of Christ.
