The good Shepherd by ep-arts
I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep
The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep
The hired hand runs away
because he is a hired hand
and cares nothing for the sheep
I am the good shepherd
Give the hungry their bread
and they will follow you
Serve a scapegoat on the table
and they will only worship you
if only you know seen the truth
then your followers will believe you blindly
The first impression of this picture might be a sense of blasphemy, but that wasnt meant to be. I am inspired by the relationship between the master and the servants history in the western world with religion as a strong factor of power. I am inspired by Christianity as power.
If you believe in only one God, this God leads you and makes your reality. If there is only one who leads the way, there is no other way to follow. The good shepherd protects his sheep and leads them to their salvation. What makes the shepherd good, if there are no other shepherds to compare with?
