Mascots are used to represent a public identity. Do you view Jesus as just a mascot in your life?
20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life. 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
1 John 5:20-21
