Welcome to Churchtoons! Every Sunday I try to post a new cartoon. Here are my latest:

judges seek to make us timid

  • We live in a world that judges others in order to find self-worth. As Christians, we are to live above this norm, by simply trusting in God's great love for us. Faith in God's love for us frees us from the timidity that world tries to enforce through its harsh criticism. Do you bind others with your judgments, or do you free them by demonstrating God's love? 1 John 4:16-18

Those who are hard to love

Those around us have every right to expect us to be the first to show love. I John 4:9-13 reminds us that Christ loved us first, and following Christ's example, we too should love first. Are you willing to extend love to those who are not lovable? Are you willing to be Christ-like in this way?

Are you a truth snob?

The Bible breaks with popular belief by declaring some things as absolutely true. In 1 John 4, God teaches that Jesus Christ's identity as the Son of God is one of those truths. While we might be afraid of declaring such a thing, we can take comfort in idea that some things can be relied up as truth. How discriminating is your palate for truth?

Cain or Christ?

John uses Cain's violent response (1 John 3:11-14) to his failure to love, as a way for us to think about how we respond when we've been caught doing bad things. Do we take our failures or sins to Christ and ask him to apply his forgiveness, or do we attack those who have noticed our failures?

Really - I'm not this way, I just act this way

Christians are called to bear resemblance to God the Father and to His son, Jesus. Our actions define our character and our character drives our actions. Who do you resemble in your daily behaviors?
1 John 2

We need more than an example

Although we often think of Jesus as our great example, this thinking does not not fully recognize our great need, or his great sacrifice. While it's great to try to be like Jesus, we can never really live up to his perfect standard. The book of 1 John tells us that we Jesus to act supernaturally on our behalf, or save us from our sins. Have you asked Jesus Christ to be your savior or are you trying to be Jesus on your own?

Blinded by Hate

When we choose to hate others, we become blind and unaware of our surroundings (1 Jn 2:9--11). Can you think of times your hate has hurt others without even you noticing?


Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
