Identifying Where the Problem Is

“Those who object to portraits of Jesus should not have various Christological heresies assigned to them. It is as if a ham-fisted painter tried a portrait of my best friend, and I complained the painting had no soul. The painter could not reply that I was saying my friend had no soul. But we are talking about his painting, not my friend. We are talking about the painter’s artistic inadequacies, not my friend’s soulless inadequacies, which is why the painter keeps trying to change the subject” (Papa Don’t Pope, pp. 98-99).
