    Walmart Jeebus

    [B][SIZE="5"]South Carolina couple claims to possess Wal-Mart receipt with the face of Christ [/SIZE][/B]

    A South Carolina couple claims to possess one heckuva of a saintly sales slip--a Wal-Mart check-out receipt with the face of Christ on it.

    Gentry Lee Sutherland and Jacob Simmons got the blessed bill of sale upon paying for the development of 11 photos June 12 at a Wal-Mart store in Travelers Rest, S.C.

    "People are going to believe what they want to believe," said Sutherland.

    "There's tons of people who will say, 'Oh, we're in the Bible Belt,' but here's my question to the doubters, who else has the power to put their face on a check-out receipt but Jesus?"

    It wasn't until three days after they paid for the photos that Sutherland and Simmons divined the two eyes and bushy beard and hair that is now so evident when they look at the receipt.

    "When I got home, I laid the receipt for the film on the kitchen counter and three days later we went to church like we usually do on Wednesday night," said Sutherland.

    The theme for that night's service at College Park Worship Center--a Christian church--in Berea, S.C., she said, was intimacy with God.

    "The message was getting to know God," Sutherland recalled. "The question they asked was, 'Would you know Jesus if you saw him?'"

    After the service, the couple returned to Sutherland's home to watch a movie.

    "Right before we were about to start I noticed Jacob standing beside the counter. I said, 'What's wrong with you?'"

    "He said, 'Look at this receipt.' I just looked at it and it looked kind of brown, and he said, 'No, Look at it.' So I took a second look and then I saw the face. The message we had just heard at church an hour before went through my mind."

    Sutherland, 21, who attends North Greenville University and is engaged to Simmons, says that she was initially scared of the image.

    "I always wondered why in the Bible when someone saw an angel they were afraid, but now I know," she explained. "We're human beings and we're not used to seeing that kind of thing.

    "We're just sharing it with family and friends," Sutherland added. "To be honest, I'm just glad it's gotten out this fast. It's worldwide. We don't know what we're going to do with it. We'll pray about it. For now, we'll just share the love and blessing."

    To me, it looks less like Jeebus and more like Timmmy's expression as

    a) Neighbors chortling Rooster suddenly emerges from brush flexing wings

    b) He reaches down for a quick scratch and feels the extra teestigle

    If Jesus put himself on a Walmart receipt, would he be upside down?

    I have often thought that one did not need to go to church to be close to Jesus. Never figured he was hanging out at Walmart.

    Where the hell did you dig up a receipt from 1981? Saving it, so you can return the 2600 for a new one if it breaks?
