Note to Christian Drivers

If you put an icthys (fish symbol), a cross, or some other sign of your faith in Jesus on the back of your car, please, as a favor to the rest of us believers, drive like a Christian!

An icthys-carrying Chevy blew past me at 75mph in a 60mph zone this morning, swerved across three lanes of Interstate and cut off two other cars in the process. Do I need to point out that driving like a lunatic doesn’t reflect well on your walk with Christ?

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men;
I Peter 2:13-15

Remember, Peter wrote during the reign of Nero, one of the cruelest of the Roman emperors. If Peter understood that it was God’s will to obey even a monster like Nero, we Christians in 21st Century America can obey the posted speed limit!
