Bumper Sticker: Jesus is the Answer

I saw a bumper sticker the other day:  “Jesus is the Answer.”  While I agree with the statement, I’m not sure that I would put a bumper sticker on my car.

Part of it may be identifying with the religious right.  If I start advertizing my Christianity, I may be confused with the ‘wrong kind of Christianity.’  However, I think it is more.  I can’t quite make sense of it.  I am willing to put a political bumper sticker on my car.

Admittedly, I am not a big bumper sticker kind of guy.  I am a Seahawks fan, sort of genitically, having grown up male in America.  However, I can’t buy into football completely. It’s too violent, too commercial.  In contrast, I am fully committed to being a Christian, but I won’t go so far as bumper sticker.

Maybe I am not convinced that everyone should believe as I do.  There are many paths to God.  While I feel comfortable with my faith, I don’t absolutely know that it is right for everyone.

So, what to do about a bumper sticker that says, ‘Jesus is the Answer?’

    I’m with you Peter. I think you probably prefer conversations, but bumper stickers are one-way communication to put it graciously, or to put it crudely, unsolicited marketing. Even a tattoo opens the door for communication 🙂 Bumper stickers — no way.
