On Fire for All Things Christ

Cutthroat Street Posters

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.

Santa Muerte Street Poster

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)

Jesus Poster by Cutthroat

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!

Genesis 50:20
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Romans 8:28
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.

  1. Cutthroats is wholly made of awesome.

  2. I know this artist he is all about the art and what gets people talking in my opinion. So I guess his mission has been accomplished and wether for good or bad at least the conversation is taking place

  3. Cutthroat is not a Christian, he uses his images to poke fun at the various and obvious faults in religion, specifically Christianity. To blindly accept Cutthroat’s art simply because he puts up a few posters around Houston depicting Jesus without truly understanding the motive behind it speaks to the central problem with your religion as a whole. The blind faithful have done it again.

    • I realize that post will likely not make it through moderation. The truth never does in religious circles.

      • Yes, there is a history of Truth being rejected among religious circles, hence Jesus on the cross (with the crown of thorns as Cutthroat illustrated) – men rejecting the Truth of Christ. But even with that, God brought a bigger blessing.

        And, it’s only fair to mention that Truth often gets rejected by many, not just religious circles.

      • Dante did this artist mention his beliefs to you or are you speaking on his behalf assuming this is how he thinks

    • Thanks for the insight. Did you read the scripture at the bottom of the post? Genesis 50:20 – You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Cutthroat’s intent may be to poke fun at religion (especially Christianity like you said), but God has a greater purpose, and that’s what I am highlighting in my post in regards to the poster.
