This is not a joke, this is for real!

Traditionally, Evangelical Christianity is at odds with environmentalists and environmentalism claims. God is supposedly in control of the world and nothing can destroy the world before HE is ready to do it himself just prior to the final judgment.
In my opinion this is just one more symptom of attempts being made by the Meme of superstitious Christianity to remain relevant to an increasingly more educated population. This is but one more example of how thinking people realize that Christianity must change and adapt in order to survive into the future. Of course God never changes, so this presents a dilemma for the true Christian. If Christianity is changing and God never changes then there is a contradiction going on somewhere.
No matter how you interpret this WWJ Drive ad, it sure is funny.
Q: What would Jesus drive?
Public transit or private car? Stick shift or automatic? A sport-utility vehicle roomy enough for all 12 apostles or an economy model?
Perhaps 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.''
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."
Another scripture indicates that Yahweh favored Dodge pickup trucks. Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain until "the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."
Then it may be that Jesus would drive a Honda, although he wouldn't talk about it. In St. John's gospel Christ tells a crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say.'"
And, following the Master's lead, the Apostles carpooled in a Honda: "The Apostles were in one Accord."
