They’re somehow supposed to be “inspirational”. I find the whole idea that there’s an invisible guy following me around and watching everything I do to be quite creepy. Maybe that’s just me. Anyway, I found these recaptioned versions over at Boredville. Update: 7/5/10 I was able to track down the original source for these drawings. You can find more of these great recaptioned versions over at Know Your Meme, in the “Jesus is a Jerk” sub-meme of “LOL Jesus”.
