Drive in for Jesus

Remember those good ol’ days when say, “Smokey & The Bandit” hit the big screen?

There was a line down the street past the Diamond Shamrock to get the best seat to hear Buford T. Justice say to his son, “There’s no way you came from my loins. When I get home, I’m gonna punch yo’ mama right in the mouth.”

The crowd laughs, popcorn goes flying and horns are blaring. Huh? Oh yeah. I didn’t mention this was at the neighborhood drive-in? Well, it was and those were good times (even if it was just me).

Moments that were set aside for family, friends and fellowship… BUT NOT THIS KIND (thanks to Marietta [Ga.] Post-Bulletin).

“Honk if you love Jesus” brings on an entirely different and lethargic meaning. You mean to tell me we are so completely preoccupied with the homogenized, P.C. lukewarm, just-tasted-some-throw-up-in-my-mouth movement known as “Seeker Sensitive”.

You know the type. No conviction, no passion, no challenges… no problem. It’s all about butts in seats, and because of that approach, the world is full of people who say they have faith, but can’t back it up… seemingly like this dude.

So while people would rather wake up 15 minutes till service and show up in skivvies, there is a sense of respect with Jesus that is missing from the Church, and no one seems to care.

It’s not about how you dress, look or celebrate worship. But when you would rather load up in the pick-em’ up truck such as the Ol’ Drive-in Days than get your blessed @$$urance out of the truck and worship inside the sanctuary, there’s a problem… and that’s why this story is on the Wall.

MEMO to this knobby-kneed pastor: Enjoy collecting tithe because most of your church will be spending it on gas to keep their A/C on. You nitwit.
