Perhaps it’s my imagination, but it seems there are a very large proportion of SUV drivers that attend my church.
Why do people prefer SUVs over more reasonable transportation — like cars that get twice as much gas mileage, cars that don’t support the terrorists as much, cars that are easier to drive, park, clean…
Why? It’s easy, there are two main reasons, and each is as immoral as one can imagine. 1. It’s safer for me and my kids, at the expense of the safety of all those around me every single day, and 2. It makes me feel more powerful so I can bully my way into traffic.
Of course, there are the stupid lies they tell themselves about how they need the SUV to get the kids to soccer practice, or maybe we’ll have to transport a king sized bed sometime in our lives, or, well, you name it. The real reasons are one of the first two.
Now, who would steal the safety and lives of those drivers around them just so they can feel safer or more powerful? Who would risk killing someone unnecessarily, by driving a big tank, just so they feel safer?
Certainly, not someone who has A SINGLE THREAD OF MORALS!
However, these are all the people we see at church every week.
So, is it the chicken or the egg? Does church make you immoral or does it attract the slime of our society?
Either way, shouldn’t it be fixed some day? Today? Are you giving money to churches that support and encourage this immorality?
Does your church discourage this needless killing, or condone it?
