I just saw a car with a "Powered by Christ" sticker on it.
and now I am feeling like an absolute idiot. Here I was, putting GAS in my car when I could have had Jesus power it for me. As a person of faith, how did I miss this opportunity?

3. I wonder if Jesus prosecutes "drive offs" ?
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 12:10 PM by Vinnie From Indy
That must be where the whole "Hell" thing came about. Jesus had it up to here with the drive-offs and created Hell to teach them a lesson. Do you think he stands behind thick bullet proof glass?

4. Hey, no joke. Here in VA, you could use your license for that.
I wonder if I should fill up just in case?

14. In effect, all cars are powered by Christ.
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 12:09 PM by KyuzoGator
See, Jesus Christ died 2005 years ago in the Middle East. When his body was buried, it began contributing to a process of decomposition that over millions of years has led to the formation of fossil fuels deep beneath the surface in that region.

So yeah, that bumper sticker was accurate.

I'm all for turning fat cat republicans into biodiesel.

It's not a renewable resource, BUT it is a short term energy fix.

Yep, people here of a particular religious affiliation get in their cars, fire them up and "trust to God." The rest of us try to stay out of the way.

Christ wasn't burned ... in an internal combustion engine or any other way. :shrug:

Maybe I should put "Buddhist-Empowered" on my bumper. Would anyone get it? I wonder. :evilgrin:

33. Reminds me of a joke.
Two nuns are driving in a car when it runs out of gas. The only container they have is a bedpan, but luckily the nearest gas station is less than a mile, so only a slight hassle.

They get back to the car, and are pouring the gas into the car from the bedpan, when a Baptist preacher drives by and sees this going on. He starts to cry and says "OH LORD! If I only had THEIR faith!"

Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 01:12 PM by leeroysphits
Apparently the world is running out of cheap Christ especially with the introduction of emerging industrial nations in asia. i hope our strategic Christ reserves will be enough to tide us over until after Bush gets those Iraqi Christ fields running at full capacity.

I'm getting pretty tired of paying $2.50 for a gallon of Christ.

Just had to add that I hope they get rid of that Christ guzzling SUV and buy a hybrid (christ/muhammed powered) vehicle...

Hey, it's "faith-based driving!" Put a Messiah in your tank!

Actually, I never thought that the wafer contained oil. Flour and water, yes, but not oil.
