Q&A: Pegging God

Upon walking out of Walmart, I saw a small BMW tattooed like the car in the photo here. It’s fairly easy to learn more than you care to know about eager bumper sticker-ers and their views.

One tat caught my eye. It read “God is too big for one religion.” Of course, that came at me like “Well, son, wadda got to say about that!” I deliberated and then I thought about you.

So how do you respond to this? I’d really appreciate your answer.

  1. I went through the same thoughts too. Why would anyone do that to a little BMW? This person must feel so misunderstood by the world that their car would become a mode of communication… I wouldn’t have expected it on a BMW thought… Not what I envisioned coming out of Florida either… yikes, thinking too much about the wrong thing. The slogan you mentioned spurs on all kinds of thoughts too. God Is Too Big for ANY religion. He isn’t religion at all, He is relationship. Religion is man’s title to describe what is believed. But I don’t think that is what the author and the displayer of the phrase is trying to promote. It sure does open the door to interesting conversation when we can begin by agreeing, then share The Relationship that eliminates the need to cover a car with cries for love and acceptance.

  2. My first thought was, Why would anyone do that to a BMW? 🙂

    To your question: I would agree in one sense and I will adapt what Robert Capon said once: with Jesus’ death and resurrection was God’s announcement of the end of religion.

  3. Yeah, I’d pretty much agree with that. There are many paths up the mountain. I was just reading about near death experiences in Opening Heaven’s Door by Patricia Pearson. Many people who considered themselves attached to a particular religious creed became much less affiliated after their experience and saw God as far more inclusive and there being no ‘right’ way to believe. It’s all about love and compassion. 🙂
