You’ve seen the bumper sticker below on cars everywhere, right? A mix of science, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity and Judaism – all blended together in one happy rectangle. The problem? It’s a lie. People really believe that is possible? I guess so. They seem to be the same kind of people who hang out in the tree-hugging, war-bashing, extreme liberal camps (as far as I can tell). Just jump over and check out the rest of the stickers on Peacermonger.org, and I’m sure it will be obvious.
So why write about this? Because when I read the first commandment in Exodus 20:3, the God I follow makes it clear that we can attempt to get along for the moment – but one day this bumper sticker will prove to be a myth. Obviously I’m not suggesting that war is a tremendous thing, or that we should be angry about so much division. This is a free nation, but you have to call a spade a spade. Just seems to me that one can’t be free if he joins forces with everyone? Does this confuse you as much as me?
