WWJD-joke or version?greenspun.com : LUSENET : (Keeping Track) : One Thread
Most people assume WWJD is for "What would Jesus do?" But the initials really stand for "What would Jesus drive?" One theory is that Jesus would tool 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 83, the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm." Perhaps God favors Dodge pickup trucks 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. As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's gospel where Christ tells the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord..." Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills." Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler-"Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land." And following the Master's lead, the Apostles carpooled in a Honda-"The Apostles were in one Accord."

I kinda think Jesus would still be walking. He was a "people" person, and always wanted to be among the people. If he were alive today, I sorta picture him living like Mother Teresa did, and if he needed to go anywhere, someone would drive him. Heck, I would! He was such a wonderful man, I would be honored to do anything he asked! Wouldn't you? Of course, I would do the same for the Dali Lama, Buddah, and all the great one's who practice(d) and preach(ed) kindness. Kindness is what will save us all.
