Can you see Jesus in this Cheeto?

A local church youth leader wants you to see a cheese curl that reminds him of Jesus.A couple of years ago, the youth director at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church in Houston was snacking in the church youth offices when he noticed an odd-shaped Cheeto. Upon further inspection, Steve Cragg determined he could see a familiar image of Jesus in the shape of the cheese curl.

One of the church youth named the item in question 'Cheesus.'

'Cheesus' has remained on a bookcase in Cragg's office since its discovery.

"I do not think that God makes Cheetos that look like Jesus or creates images of Himself on screen doors. I do know that God reveals Himself to us in a zillion different ways," Cragg said. "Seeing the image of Christ in a Cheeto means that I was able to imagine it. God's creation is full of signs and things that can and do remind us of Him."

Cragg was moved to share a photo of 'Cheesus' with others in anticipation and honor of Easter.
Return of Cheesus?

Another family thinks they've spotted the image of Jesus in a Cheeto as well. Watch the story of their discovery in May 2009.
