Any attempt to advance
a case for the uniqueness (or ‘one-of-a-kindness’)
of Jesus Christ is problematic. Problematic, not only
because of the need to delve into comparative religion
and literature (for which exercise we scarcely have
time or space) but because the view abounds amongst
some scholars that if there was a historical Jesus Christ
he is indistinguishable from the Christ of faith that
emerges from the pages of the New Testament documents
The sex in your face philosophy, delineated above
by Andrew Oldham, still prevails in much of today’s
pop music culture. Rihanna’s highly acclaimed,
Grammy Award winning single “Umbrella”,
from her Good Girl Gone Bad album, is no exception.
On top of that, the music video is also punctuated
with occult imagery.
