Are Cars Mentioned In The Bible?

 Robert Strand

Most people assume "WWJD" stands for "What Would Jesus Do?" But the initials really stand for "What Would Jesus DRIVE?"

carparkedOne theory is that Jesus would have tooled around in an old Plymouth because the Bible says, "God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury."

But in Psalm 38, the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "Pursue your enemies with your Tempest and glorify them with your Storm."

Perhaps God also favors Dodge pickups because Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."

Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. They cite the following as proof, "For I did not speak of my own Accord."

Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle because, "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills."

But then, Joshua drove a British sports car with a hole in the muffler, "Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land."

And finally, following the Master's lead, the Apostles car-pooled in a Honda, "The Apostles were all in one Accord."

Oh...well...just a bit of Biblical nonsense. However, it goes to show how easy it is to misplace scripture, to misread scripture, to misinterpret scripture, to mis-apply scripture, or to twist scripture. When hearing or reading the Word of God...make sure to rightly use it and always consider it in it's context and get the big picture. HOWEVER, make sure you are a regular Bible reader!

"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" (Psalm 119:105).
