My only objection I have about the Jesus(as) bumper stickers is I see them as being very disrespectful of him. At best it is an attempt to commercialize Jesus(as) as a commodity, at worse it is dragging his name through the mud and showing no respect of Jesus(as)

I see them from time to time here in Australia. By no means uncommon.
Jesus said do as I have done...They are suppose to ride donkeys....Jesus did not own a dead bloodsucking vehicle that pollutes the planet.....that being said...no matter what they sick on the dead bloodsucking vehicle...it is still unholy...and in league with Satan's plan to totally destroy the planet and all living things in his last death throws....as time is running out....Cause he knows what is coming is greator...and he wants everyone tied to the demise of the living, by polluting them last remnants....

See the polluted also go to the fire even if they have a sticky on the bumper!....wonder why?

Although, as the song goes...

I don't care if it rains or freezes
Long as I got my plastic Jesus
Riding on the dashboard of my car

I typically don't think about them. If I see them, it doesn't bother me at all, it's their car, not mine. It tells me that they believe in Jesus...good for them. Moving on.

Additionally, what do you think about other religious propaganda (bumper stickers, Darwin fish, etc) on cars?
Answer is the same as above. Doesn't bother me in the slightest. It's their car, their belief. What does it have to do with me? Nothing. I'm not threatened by someone elses personal views or belief systems.

Quote:
Do you have anything that declares your religious belief on your car?
No, I do not. I do have my political beliefs on my car, though.

Quote:
Would you ever put something like that on your car?
A Jesus fish? Probably not. I don't find them to be very artistic or interesting...and those statements say nothing about my religious views, merely my tastes in bumper stickers and how they look.

Quote:
Do you think your driving habits might reflect poorly or favorably on your religious beliefs / non-beliefs?
What on earth? You're kidding, right?

...not much about the lake of fire in that song...But I hear and see the implications of similarity none the less...As long as a Plastic flamable Jesus is on the dash they don't care?......let em burn then is the reply?...might be the order of the day sooner than later...oh look fire season....drought...and other foretold events happening on the land of the so called free.....wonder why?...Yep I don't care//cause I got God and Jesus in me...might be another chorus to a new tune?

OH, so it's SATAN'S fault. And all this time I thought it was just humans being buttholes. Whew, thank goodness we don't have to look in the mirror! Bring it on Jesus as I don't know how much longer humanity can keep passing the buck. Wouldn't want that responsibility...nope...can't have that.

Personally I don't think Jesus pays much attention to what's on our car but more what's in our hearts. If it's not imprinted in your heart then it's just vanity and hypocritical.

I find the Jesus fishes tacky. But, I also think the Darwin fish with legs, the spaghetti ball god, CTR, etc emblems or stickers are tacky. I don't see what good it does to emblazen your car with stickers about your belief system. If anything, it opens up the door for negative reactions to your behavior. Cut someone off, forget to use your blinker, etc, and people will think you and your whole group you so proudly represent are idiots.

True

I really doubt if anybody pays much attention to them. they are meaningless to most non-Christians and should be seen as demeaning to Christians. The only thing that happens is they get splattered with mud, the owner scrapes it off and replaces it with a new one, making the sticker maker very happy.

Reducing the discipleship of Jesus Christ to a slogan or catch phrase is disrespectful to Christ. Reaching out to people in a personal, meaningful way does honor Him. It's what He did.
