Religiosity

Is that even a word? Apropros to my previous post, some religious license plates for your viewing pleasure.

This one had a very large “Jesus is the Beginning and End” sticker on the back window with alpha and omega symbols.

I have very strong feelings against proselytizing. I had some very bad experiences in college that really put me off having open and honest discussions about religion and beliefs. Which is weird – I used to pride myself on that sort of thing. Definitely a touchy subject with me.

    That’s not necessarily recruiting. It’s also, but moreso, expression. However, Christians are taught to witness and set a Christian example. Displaying our faith on our cars is a way-too-easy way to do it. For me, the ichthys on mine is more of a challenge for me. It reminds me to set that Godly example because with it I have stated that I am a Christian and therefore must set that Godly example.

    For the most part, I see those decals as noting one’s membership in a club.

    But it could be a nice thing, assuming the driver doesn’t step out of the car saying “Have you heard the Good Word?” I could see it as an invitation to talk and maybe get some questions answered.

    I guess it depends on the intent and motivation of the owner.

    I saw a bumper sticker once that said ”Born ok the first time”.
    I took it to mean that there is no need to be “born again”. Just something to think about.

    “I guess it depends on the intent and motivation of the owner.”

    I agree. I suppose it’s the same way with those that have a bumper sticker reading “If you can read this, get off my ass.” Or however the saying goes, lol.

    I can’t imagine why your college experience would make you feel that way. LOL! Seriously, interesting and duly noted. The proselytizing at Berry was perhaps the key factor in turning me away from organized religion. Ironic that.
