Jesus statue unscathed by Typhoon Haiyan

(CNN) - A  giant statue of Jesus apparently survived Typhoon Haiyan unscathed, even as the massive storm flattened many parts of Tanauan, a coastal town in the central Philippines.

It's not the first time religious statues have survived natural disasters in the heavily Catholic Philippines, according to local reports. Two statues of the Virgin Mary withstood a devastating earthquake last month.

Meanwhile, Haiyan has wiped entire towns off the map, and thousands are searching for family members, food and water.

So, what do you think, readers: Is the unscathed Jesus statue a miraculous sign of hope amid the ruins or just a random coincidence?

    They preferred spending money on making a strong foundation for a lifeless statue then for the people... So smart!

      Really?!?

      Ask why people in the U.S. midwest have so many houses built out of wood and shotty alluminum in tornado alley. Better materials cost money. Some people can't afford proper fortification, or better building supplies in general. The sarcastic 'high-horse' is not the place to be looking down from.

        Actually, have a close look at the base of the statue. That is a very low cost construction that is perfect for tornadoes. It is basically a semicircular piece of concrete affixed to the ground. That is one of the best tornado shelters because no matter what direction the wind comes from it can't get a grip on the structure. You put a steel entrance door, the people run and lie in it for 30 minuetes, the storm passes they emerge. Very cheap and easy to build. You can't use it in costal flood zones though, due to flood risk.

    I believe the middle-eastern sky god from 6,000 thousand years ago that sent himself/his son down to die, has decided in 2013 to bless the Philippines and it's people loving unrelenting faith by preserving a caricature version of himself/his son that displays Jesus as he truly wanted to be: with fair skin, Caucasian features, and salvation for the rich white people in the early 21st century....I mean supernatural forces can send mixed signals (millions die in an earthquake but some old dusty statue of Mary is saved?) but I think its obvious God only loves ONLY those who look like late a early 20th century white-wash rendering of Jesus, made to make Christianity more appealing to the West. Of course y'all.

  3. What is hope?

    Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
    Romans 15

    Maybe, that statue is a sign for the Filipino people that there is hope amidst all the destruction that they see around them, there is hope for a better tomorrow and the statue is a reminder of that hope for these people who have lost everything.

      Yes, indeed!

      That must be a sign from God that through all the tribulation, pain and sorrow in this world, there is HOPE for the people of Philippines that have been affected by this storm. During times of storm, people can look to God for comfort, healing and restoration.

      Only God can provide that hope to those people who are hurting.

      • Richard Cranium

        "Only God can provide that hope to those people who are hurting."

        False. There are many people of varying beliefs, including atheists that are comforted by the response of people, not gods.
        The response by people is something that is tangible, while no one can see if any god is involved in any way.

        November 13, 2013 at 12:20 pm |
      • David

        People and organizations can only provide relief. What they can't provide is Hope. Hope comes from God.

          Perhaps – but I'm more inclined to believe that hope springs internal. In other words – hope is an internal process – no external source needed.

        • George

          That's simply false–people can provide hope to others. If belief in a god does that too, fine, but to claim that's the only source is just silly.

    Hope in the midst of tragedy comes not from gods, but from our own indomitable human spirit.

    In 1996, a box was uncovered in Washington, DC that contained 50 or so drawings made by ja/panese children who survived the Hiroshima bombing.
    None of the pictures reflected the horror that these children had endured less than two years earlier. Instead, they depict self portraits, a cityscape, festival flags and kites flying against a bright blue sky, children on a playground, cherry blossoms in bloom, city traffic on a bridge....

    The children had experienced first hand a level of devastation that had never been imagined, and yet they remained focused on beauty and joy, not pain and destruction.

      and yet the whole focus of religion is guilt and punishment and the end of the world.

      The arabs were the shining light of the world and a thousand years of islam has degraded their entire civilization into a brutish, primitive life. America was once great but Christianity is already dragging it down, destroying the science and knowledge that once gave America her strength. .

          Fact
          The christians used the bible to justify slavery, especially the people of Ham...the cursed dark skinned people. The bible says it is ok to use them, since they are cursed. It was used for a couple hundred years as justification.

        • Fact

          The same Bible that they used to oppress Africans was the same Bible that was used to gain their freedom. There was a significant number of Christians that opposed slavery and lost their life defending the rights of the African victims.

          And Christians were enslaved at that time, too.

          Not all Christians practiced slavery. And not all subscribed to the interpretation of the verse you referenced. It has been a human problem, on that has been present in atheist, agnostic and secular society, too.

        • Fact

          Frederick Douglas put it well:

          “I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ: I therefore hate the corrupt, slaveholding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of the land. Indeed, I can see no reason, but the most deceitful one, for calling the religion of this land Christianity. I look upon it as the climax of all misnomers, the boldest of all frauds, and the grossest of all libels. Never was there a clearer case of 'stealing the livery of the court of heaven to serve the devil in.' I am filled with unutterable loathing when I contemplate the religious pomp and show, together with the horrible inconsistencies, which every where surround me. We have men-stealers for ministers, women-whippers for missionaries, and cradle-plunderers for church members. The man who wields the blood-clotted cowskin during the week fills the pulpit on Sunday, and claims to be a minister of the meek and lowly Jesus. . . . The slave auctioneer’s bell and the church-going bell chime in with each other, and the bitter cries of the heart-broken slave are drowned in the religious shouts of his pious master. Revivals of religion and revivals in the slave-trade go hand in hand together. The slave prison and the church stand near each other. The clanking of fetters and the rattling of chains in the prison, and the pious psalm and solemn prayer in the church, may be heard at the same time. The dealers in the bodies and souls of men erect their stand in the presence of the pulpit, and they mutually help each other. The dealer gives his blood-stained gold to support the pulpit, and the pulpit, in return, covers his infernal business with the garb of Christianity. Here we have religion and robbery the allies of each other—devils dressed in angels’ robes, and hell presenting the semblance of paradise.”

          A) We don't know who wrote most of the books of the bible. B) We have no outside sources to confirm how/when the original disciples died. C) Martyr stories were quite popular in early christian circles (for exaclty the reason you are using them) to justify their faith. "If X was willing to DIE for his belief, what are you willing to do?"

          Did they all die for a faith they knew to be true? Maybe – but we don't have anything to tell us for sure that was the case.

      Harken to my word and mock me not! I bring you the 10 Commandments for the 21st Century.

      I. THOU SHALT NOT have false gods before me. All Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Jains, and Sheiks shall forthwith abandon their faith and culture and adopt the Christian god.

      II. THOU SHALT NOT blaspheme and shall worship me always. Even though I created the entire Universe and its 200,000,000,000 galaxies, each with 100,000,000,000 stars and planets, about 13,700,000,000 years ago, I need constant attention from h.omo sapiens or I will have a temper tantrum and drown them (again).

      III. THOU ART under constant supervision by me, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I monitor your thoughts, too. I do so simultaneously for the other 7,000,000,000 living h.omo sapiens. If you displease me, I will burn you for all eternity.

      IV. THOU SHALT NOT think for thy self. Thou shalt blindly accept what thou hast been taught as a child and shalt value blind belief in me above all other traits. Eschew thinking for oneself – it is dangerous. Thy brain is merely to be used for praying and keeping thy ears apart.

      V. ACCEPTETH always circular reasoning. Believe in God because it is written in the Bible and believe the Bible because it says it is written by God.

      VI. THINKETH that I read your mind and hear your prayers and intervene to alter what would otherwise be the course of history in small ways to suit your whims.

      VII. THOU SHALT NOT covert thy neighbor’s wife, unless she is a virgin, then it is ok to r.ape her. If she is British, it will count as penance. Women can covert they neighbor’s husband all they want.

      VIII. THOU SHALT link a belief in me to morality. Thou shalt not realize that one can abandon the supernatural beliefs of Christianity without abandoning its morality.

      IX. THOU SHALT burn in hell if thou does not accept these rules. I shall provide absolutely no evidence of my existence then demand blind belief in me. Those who are naturally skeptical have breached my commandment about not using their brain and I shall burn them for all eternity, even if they are otherwise fine people – because I love them so much.

      X. ACCEPTETH that there are 10 commandments here, even though there are only nine, because I say so. If one has true faith in me, one will accept that 10 is 9 and 9 is 10, and then that three gods are one and one god is three and that there was no Adam and Eve but that I sent my son to save humans from Eve’s original sin, that I am all powerful and loving, but send a good percentage of the 100,000 human beings who die every day to the hell I created and maintain. Blatant contradictions are merely meant to test one’s faith.

        Hey T, just checking in. What is your church doing to help in this crisis? I feel helpless just giving money but it will have to do.

  15. It was in the reign of George III that the aforesaid personages lived and quarreled; good or bad, handsome or ugly, rich or poor, they are all equal now.

    It's like the Twin Towers cross again. If there were a god, this would be a good reason for misotheism, as any god who not only massacres people but actually leaves a calling card is not a god I want anything to do with.

      There were probably lots of beams curved into passable crescent moons at the Twin Tower site as well, but rescuers weren't looking for that symbol, were they?

        Very probable.

    The statue looks a little crooked to me.

      Apt.

    Reblogged this on New Life Now Ministries and commented:
    The real "Rock" can't be moved! This statue should become a symbol for the people. Only by standing with Jesus can we overcome the storms of life.

      Some of the people that lost loved ones, probably would like them back, more than that statue.

      Maybe, if you happened to be saved by holding onto that heavy statue, otherwise I really don't see your point.

      It should become a symbol of how better construction saves lives, and nothing more.

    Wouldn't it be more a sign of arrogance?

    "Die, die, people of the Phillipines! I will usher a mighty storm upon you! ....... oh, but I will save my statue..."

    Sorry. Even IF there was a god, this wouldn't be enough for me if my baby got ripped from my arms.

    @Is the unscathed Jesus statue a miraculous sign of hope amid the ruins or just a random coincidence?

    My vote is just a random coincidence.

      Not a Catholic, eh? How about the Twin Tower "cross"? Does that do anything for you?

    Ah, so there is a God and it does like graven images.

      Considering He gave that commandment while His people were making a calf god... well timing IS everything.

        Actually, that part of the Exodus story shows how screwed up the Old Testament got because it hasd so many people adding to it and subtracting from it over the centuries. Moses gets the original comandments from God. As the Exodus story continues, after receiving this set of commandments from God, Moses descends from Mount Sinai only to find his people worshipping a golden calf. Moses’ anger “waxes hot” and he smashes the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments in a fit of rage.

        He later returns to the mountain and God orders him to “Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.” Unfortunately, it seems God’s memory was off that day, because the replacement tablets he gave Moses contained the following Ten Commandments:

        Thou shalt worship no other god.
        Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
        Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread .
        All that openeth the matrix are mine.
        Thou shalt rest on the Sabbath.
        Thou shalt rest in earing time and in harvest.
        Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the first fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.
        Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the Passover be left unto the morning.
        The first fruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the Lord thy God.
        Thou shalt not seethe (cook) a baby goat in its mother's milk.

        These, my friends, are the ten commandments laid down by the creator of the Universe for all of humanity to follow......

          Veronica Of The Cross, a visionary who passed away in 1995, said that our Lord Jesus Christ told her on September 14, 1976: "I give you an indication that the time is ripe. When you hear, when you feel the revolution in Rome, when you see the Holy Father fleeing, seeking refuge in another land, know that the time is ripe." Also, Veronica had a vision on December 24,1973, she saw a massive comet break apart and a piece strike the sun.

          Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation on February 11, 2013. In just a few hours the Vatican was struck by lightning, twice, a sign from God that the reign of the Seven Kings (pope-kings or priest-kings which started on February 11, 1929 with Pope Pius XI) of the apocalypse is now over. Pope Benedict has already endorsed the beatification and veneration of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II (Rev. 13). This means that The Big, End-Times Tribulations are here, stronger and stronger, one after another.

          I see this, the statue's survival, and the biggest storm itself, as an Urgent Warning from God. God The Son, with outstretched arms, in an attempt to reach the Last Soul that He could save. Is there anyone else out there who would like to grab the hands of The Savior?

          Before the end of November 2013, there will be a huge comet coming, confirmed by the mainstream media. I hope this is not yet the comet that the book of revelation, or Veronica, is talking about.

          Anyway, the book of revelation is now reading like a history book. Starting with the last passage, Revelation, chapter 12, which talks about The Ark Of The Covenant, followed by (a flashback of God's Wisdom, indicating that there is a relationship between the Ark and the Woman) the Woman clothed with the sun (Our Lady and the miracle of the sun, witnessed by 70,000, on October 13, 1917), immediately at Her heel follows the red dragon (USSR was formed after a revolution, just days after the appearance of our Lady of Fatima to the three children).

          There's more. To understand the book of revelation, please watch the presentations of Brother Peter Dimond on You Tube. Him and his brother Michael, and their group are working hard to help us understand the Bible without twisting the truth. May God help, guide and bless them and their followers, in all their endeavors. Thanks be to God Almighty, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Amen.
