Mash-ups are all the rage these days. Taking a bunch of things and smushing them all together is much more than just your mother's recipe for casserole: it is an unharnessed recipe for placing power in dangerous hands. Dangerous, dangerous hands.

Now Jesus has a bunch of powers to start with. He can be your friend. He can walk on water. He can even kill vampires. But despite all of his powers, Jesus cannot do kung-fu.

Ok, apparently he can. A quick google search revealed this pretty clearly, both in this case and this one too.

Whatever. This Kung-Fu Jesus fits in your pocket. You'll know that Jesus is always there to protect you.

As with all crazy projects, there are side effects. Crazy, alliterative side effects. Not only did we create a no-holds-barred evangelist, we made a bald baby sculpture who resembles Buddha. Strangely, Buddha is wearing Jesus' old digs.

Step 1: Find Jesus (and other supplies)

After some serious searching, I found Jesus...and purchased him. Search your local $1 stores and various religious sundry items bargain bins.

The kung-fu baby, on the other hand, was much easier to come by. One word: Walgreens. Feel free to pick up any necessary personal items while shopping for your kung-fu baby.

You'll also need a box-cutter, hot glue, and a bit of fabric such as an old t-shirt.
Deeply offended, I'm a Christian... :( WHY???????
I HATE you trash talk Jesus Unbelievable your stupid
*gasp* okay... LOVE THIS! I understand how/ why people feel offened, and I'm non-religious (agnostic, atheist, pick a label). It's the IDEA of it and the project, not taking it as an "I intend to offend" thing. A Chuck Norris or Wednesday Aadams figure would work too. I'm not making light of anyone's feelings, just saying it's a nifty idea in and of itself. Thanks, Jaques.
I'm not even Christian and I'm a little offended
That's about the least-used sentence in the English language.
pure awesome, I'd have to figure out how to change the voice tho.
sir I think its kinda offensive, you could just make something out of other people but not to persons who inspire lots of nations like Buddha and Jesus. thanks for your understanding
Well I don't know about you but I would much rather have had a kungfu trashtalking buddy christ than the usual &quot;dinosaurs are something the commies invented&quot; colouring books that they always sold at church.<br /> Not to mention that it makes sense, who else can walk on water fly and/or flip out? Ninjas can!<br />
i agree. this is awesome. religious or not, its very creative.
OH WHO CARES IF IT OFFENDS PEOPLE? Other than the offended of course.
I agree with nokairen.
I would imagine the most supreme and powerful, not to mention forgiving, being of the universe, would have a supreme and powerful sense of humor. :-P
I agree with you
it's not really that bad. yes, it would have been nice if he would have used someone else for the model but just because he is using Jesus does not mean he is making fun of him.
lol kung fued
Jesus walked the earth as a man, and in all likelyhood had feelings, a sense of humor, enjoyed food, had sore feet after a day of carpenter work, and all that other good stuff.&nbsp; I doubt He'd mind the mash up.<br /> <br /> The original Buddha, Siddharta Gautama, was a well known prankster in his youth and loved to laugh, and would have found this to be HYSTERICAL in all likelyhood.<br /> <br /> Bonus Philosophical Mashup Statement: If you meet the Buddha in the road, don't kill him, recycle him as Jesus!&nbsp;
lol! kung fu jewish zombie!
HAHAHAHAHA... Thats good....I call Easter "Zombie Jesus Day". Folks dont seem to like it much.
Well that's better than teaching children about a fatass pink rabbit that hides eggs....at least you're recognising Jesus (I bet $5 you read Cyanide &amp; Happiness...)
Dude great Instructable!! Maybe you should have a franchise of Jesus items like Jesus Cellphones, Jesus Tesla Coil, Jesus Laser and maybe Jesus Socks!!
wow.. uhhh well.....
I do this with power rangers and army men lol.
Awesome. 5/5 for you sir
cool, this was at the austin maker fair!
Wow!!! Now what you need is a 1970's GI-Joe with "Kung-fu grip". Heck he already looks like Jesus! Just add robes, and he's ready to kick arse!
Looks more like Osama Binladen, better stick that infront of da jeesus.
yeah he does just needs a turban
whats kung fu grip?
Kung Fu grip is what all the G.I. Joes have. Its so they can grab onto their weapons and stuff.
ahh I knew that :D
He actually looks a bit like Chuck Norris.
This seems like it may be interpreted as offensive to some people. That's why I love it.
Yes, I do think it is on the verge of being offensive. Jesus is someone very important to me and whom I can genuinely say I love. He is my savior. If this were about Allah, the author of this Instructable would be wondering if Salmon Rushdie needs a roommate. So, why is it OK to make fun of Jesus? And to think the people who run this site gave it featured status!
Thanks Phil. Personally, I'm a Christian. Am I terribly offended by Kung-Fu Jesus? No. Why? People always ask "If the God of the Bible is so good, what about all the evil in the world"? Well, good news, then. He's coming back clean house with with a bigass sword, massive armies, and the full wrath of God! Oh wait. I guess tha's only good news if you're not on the receiving end. BTW, this is more than just some academic philosophy. The battle is real, and it's on its way. KungFu Jeus, indeed!
i think we are treading somewhere we shouldn't, on this site anyway. BUT...do you really believe it is your idea, your Christian God, that is coming to judge us? That trivialises all other religion that preceedeed Christianity, and that is most of them. If anything, I believe we all pray (if we do)unknowingly to the SAME god, but with a different face and name depending on the faith. If you do not agree, you yourself are passing judgement, and you have no place to tell me my god is fake, and your's is the real deal. I think the holier-than-thou types are going to be in for more of a surprise come judgement day than they blindly hope for. Evil and good, black and white, one does not exist w/o the other.
Now, see that's eactly what I'm NOT saying. All this philisophical yammering buys nothing, especially when its reality we're talking about. One man can believe in standing on the trani tracks and another in standing beside them. You can say "each is equally valid"... till a few hunred tons of cold, hard steel decides otherwise.
Uh huh... But religion is more like arguing over Chocolate vs. Vanilla. You can like vanilla, I can like chocolate, and we can still be friends. In the end, what does it matter?
It only matters when you try to sell the chocolate as Vanilla, <em>people who call atheism a religion</em>.<br/>
As long as you don't start trying to turn the chocolate to the ways of the Vanilla. And vice versa, of course. To me, it's fun to have discussions about (lack of)belief, but I don't hold it against anyone until they start telling me that &quot;You and every other *CENSORED!* who doesn't recognize Jesus/Allah/God/Watertower/Teapot/Insert-Deity-here as the Big Kahuna of your life, you will burn in hell FOREVER!&quot; I just can't STAND that *Censored!* <br/>So believe (or don't believe!) what you want to, I could care less. Just don't start evangelizing me, or persecuting people for their beliefs. I'll gladly sit and listen to you discuss why your god is real, then I'll present my view, and we can be very civil. I'd prefer to be friends, but not everyone can associate themselves with &quot;Gentiles.&quot; Don't worry, I understand.<br/>
Oh, I'm sorry If I came off as a theist. No, I hunt those people with my words. I'm an atheist. Also, about your post of the 23rd of aug... It's a good comparison... but one has to be right, so it's more like arguing over Fairies vs. fact.
How does one have to be right? What happens if there is a supreme being, but it's a dolphin that no one worshiped? then both are wrong.
But that hardly ever comes into debate.
Which part? The dolphin? Sure... Both people being wrong? That SHOULD always be considered but no one is humble enough (which a religious person is supposed to always be humble) to admit they could be wrong.
And in this debate it was Atheist versus Theist; not specifically Christian. So when it's Atheist vs. Theist, one always has to be right. Because, like asymmetrical vs. symmetrical, something is either symmetrical or not.
That is still only assumptions based off the ignorance of man. How do you know there aren't shades of gray we can't understand?
But if we can't understand them, then they are irrelevant in a debate. And I, personally, believe that if something isn't symmetrical it's <strong>A</strong>symmetrical. If someone isn't theistic, they are <strong>a</strong>theistic.<br/>
Firstly this is all based off the chocolate vanilla argument, which I more took as 2 different people with 2 different religions, so its not theism vs atheism, besides there are more than just those 2 things. Besides, further more. Some followers of Buddhism don't see Buddha as a god, (nor do they even believe in 1 Buddha) but it is all a philosophy instead of a religion. Also Taoism commonly has no god(s) making it atheistic, but then again it is still a way of life that some people believe should be followed. These are all current areas of gray. But to believe that just because we have words (theism and atheism) makes them opposites is just as wrong is ever. To say the opposite of black is white has its arguable points. Such as both are things the human eye interprets as shades, they are both adjectives as well as nouns. They have many similarities. So in our human perception they are opposite, but at the same time there are so many things we can't comprehend that we couldn't contemplate a true opposite because it would be so perpetually deep and impossible to fathom. There are things we can't see, sounds we can't hear, dimensions and measurements we think impossible to exist. Doesn't mean any of them aren't true and so thus we should never think we fully understand it. So, atheist and theist argue until death, they both find themselves in some matter that they never considered and are both wrong. It could easily happen.
There are shades of Gray between Atheism and Theism? Please, dear FSM don't say agnosticism.
Sorry if I came off a bit strong. I spose atheism and religion are obviously automatically at odds, but I don't believe all religions are at odds with each other. Sure they fight, but how can truly tell a buddhist that he is wrong when all you have is your book against theirs? Therefore, if atheists are wrong, I believe ALL religions are correct. Kind of a weird view, I admit, but it makes sense to me. Kinda like Heinlein's book, "Job: A Comedy of Justice." As far as the proper comparison... We'll have to think of something! And again, my apologies.
