Finding our new, old road to God | Bellevue First Congregational Church, Bellevue, WA
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?’
