Making a Christian webcomic is an interesting thing…
…This many years in and I am finally above the lighting and shading effects seen in this comic, we all had to start somewhere.
So one thing I never really see in a Christian webcomic or even see Pastors talk about are the grating faults you, me and the heroes of the bible have.
We get these half truth stories sometimes that the Prophets and Saints of old were these perfect beings that won God’s favor through sheer perfect faith and character, it makes it hard to relate to them.
Each of them were as flawed as any of us and each of them failed often when it came to their own merit and required God’s grace so they could make it but so often that is played down to try and get us to believe that being a Christian is as easy as acting like someone else.
Do not get me wrong, its great to learn from and try to grow from the men and women of the scriptures, their stories and faith are vital for our growth but we need to realize that we are the ones here today living for God and comparing our deep personal relationship with Jesus to another persons living or dead is going to hurt us.
You are flawed but your trying to be better, you failed but so have we all…
God’s precious little treasure.
And nothing is ever going to change that. It is important in a story for us to see the hero at their best AND at their worst so I knew I had to create wonderfully complex and flawed characters to reflect that struggle we are all living, so get ready, sparks are gonna fly as we get this story rolling as we keep this Christian webcomic wagon moving!
