Now this is an interesting question. What, indeed, is a 'Christian MOC'. I think a good resource would be the essay 'Christianity and Literature' by CS Lewis (found in the book Christian Reflections). He starts out by asking what we mean by the term 'Christian literature'. He argues that there is a third way between the two you suggest. He says that to call 'Christian literature' simply any book written by a Christian, even if indistinguishable from a book written by a non-Christian, is a meaningless distinction. OTOH, he argues that more falls under the term 'Christian literature' than simply retelling of Bible stories or other specifically religious themes. He argues that there is a Christian character to writing. I tried to make an argument along these lines about LEGO building in my essay 'What Would Jesus Build?':

Anyway, I'd love to hear further thoughts on the subject.

your names bruce? awesome lol!

anyway yes, i see what frazier was saying, mocs about jehova and jesus and moses and those are the proper CHRISTIAN BASED mocs made by christians

but in my perspective all these mocs are christian, for it was the die hard christians that made them

although id draw the line on star wars mocs. the series, although brilliantly fantastically amazing it was, it was based around religious views mostly, hel in a town, where i live next to, a church of tthe jedi has appeared, although it had its problems, like one of them got assaulted by a guy wearing a binbag as a cape and a darth vader mask wielding a lead pipe

Hey,

Just to push you a little more on the subject. If I made scrambled eggs for breakfast, and my neighbor who happens to not be a religious person also made scrambled eggs, and then you sat down at the table and there were two plates, how would you decide which plate contained 'christian' scrambled eggs?
