Lightning Strikes And Burns Jesus Statue In Ohio Dubbed "Touchdown Jesus"

It sounds like God is sending a message to the people of the evangelical  Solid Rock Church and the people of Monroe, Ohio, where lightning struck and burned to the ground a Jesus statue in Ohio dubbed “Touchdown Jesus” because of the way the arms were raised, similar to a referee signaling a touchdown.  God does not like idolatry.   It was made of plastic foam and fiberglass over a steel frame, which is all that remained Tuesday.”

The nickname is the same used for a famous mural of the resurrected Jesus that overlooks the Notre Dame football stadium.
 Story here

"Touchdown Jesus?" What an abomination to God’s only Son, the Messiah who suffered so much to atone for the sins of the human race. Phillippians 2:1-11 details how God has exalted His Son, Jesus Christ, and has given Him a name above all names:

1If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Scriptures also  read:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; Exodus 20:4-5
