Default Christians: "This car is covered by the blood of Jesus"

On my commute this morning, I saw a bumper sticker that said:
Quote:
This car is covered by the blood of Jesus
Naturally, being a smart-aleck ex-believer, I had all sorts of thoughts that I won't go into out of respect, but mostly it struck me as a little creepy. Do you think this kind of message is appealing? What is its point?

Note: I'm directing this message to Christians, not looking for smart-alecky comments from fellow nons... I already thought of those.

As you know there are creepy Christians, and then there are CREEPY Christians.

I think your honest prejudice is what spawned th creepy factor for you, not knowing what degree of creepiness was inside the car. Was it the David Duke level or the child just trying to proess their religion.

As to what is meant by the sticker, it is purely determined by the creepy Christian in the car Different meanings for different people.

Seriously? Being creeped out by the mental image of a large blood-covered object is a result of prejudice?

I was a sincere believer in my youth, and I was a little creeped out by all the blood hymns even in those days.

Me too. I remember thinking:

What have my parents got us into?

I was imagining church members washing themselves in a fountain of blood.

There is not one scripture in the bible that indicates that we must put the blood of jesus or as they say 'plead the blood of Jesus' over our earthly items.

The idea was probably started by someone who read the sacrifice rituals in the OT and figured that the sprinkling of blood over various things would have some spiritual meaning for christians and their cars or other earthly possession.

The OT priests did sprinkle the blood of the sacrifices over various things, to purify it. But only when these rituals were done. If anything I would say that to purify your car, buy one that does not pump the air full of poison as soon as you can afford it.
