The Fast Road to Heaven?

“Seek first your God – put your trust in Him” shrieked the message obscuring the back windscreen of a silver Mercedes as it sped past me earlier today on the Croydon by-pass. At least, I think it was a Mercedes and I think that is what it said, because ‘sped’ is no understatement. The car zoomed past – in spite of the red traffic light just a few metres ahead – at what I reckon was a good 20-30mph over the 40mph speed limit.

It never ceases to amaze me how many Christians out there display ‘Jesus Loves You’ and ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ bumper stickers yet seem completely unable to show any love or consideration to others sharing their piece of grey tarmac.

If you are one such hypocritical, speedophile Christian, who no doubt also believes anyone who does not turn to Christ is damned, listen to my plea: the next time you go for a drive, would you please give other drivers the time to repent, rather than doing your best to ensure they end up in hell before lunchtime, having missed the opportunity?

Thank you.
