I proudly display an emblem on my personal car. It is much like all the bumper stickers that you see all over the road. It reads COEXIST. The word is spelled out using religious symbols instead of letters and looks like this.
The idea is that we all need to live and let live. That we can all exist in this world without killing each other. No matter who you worship or what you call it, we are all humans and deserve the love and respect of other humans.
The Christians seem to be in an uproar about this whole thing and it is my belief that it is because the cross comes last and Islam comes first.
Now, I have seen several versions of this. Some replace the Male/Female with and e=mc2 which represents science. And some offer the ying-yang sign as the O and put the Peace sign dotting the I. All of them have three things the same. The CX & T always represent those three religions and always in that order.
Because those three seem to be the ones that need reminding of the whole idea the most and ....... That's how you spell COEXIST. Which is an excellent word to use for the "movement".
I was called the other day by a friend who was driving behind me and saw the emblem on my car. He was outraged by the fact that I would have that on my vehicle. Proclaiming that the Islamic people want to kill me and we should not even allow them in our country at all. He went on and on proving how much of a moron he is and that's when I realized that he is a youth minister at a local church!
For your entertainment and to be fair, I am now including a section of dialog from another website that proclaims the COEXIST movement as an abandonment of core absolute values.
The goal of this movement is the promotion of a pluralistic and universal utopian worldview. At the heart of this movement is the abandonment of core absolutes and values (moral and spiritual.) This movement seeks to undermine personal beliefs and practices for the supposed “betterment” of world unification. Its most damnable feature, however, is the staunch rejection of the sovereignty and reality of Almighty God, His authoritative Word (the Bible), and His Savior to all fallen men, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 John 2:22-23). The chief Promoter of this godless ecumenical movement is the godless music industry and the pop icon Bono from the band U2. Hollywood and the fashion industry also promote this movement with an array of clothing products, gear and bumper stickers.
A phrase from the Coexist website states, “Coexist is a concept brand for everyone, connecting people and planet, together we symbolize life, love and global harmony.”
The Coexist phenomenon is the product of the subjective secular Left. The majority of the Coexist followers are secular liberals. This ideology of religious pluralism actually intersects with all three political ideologies (liberal, moderate, and conservative), but it has its greatest hold in the secular liberal mind (Romans 1:18-32; 8:5-8).
The true core of the Left are secularists who wish to promote a delusional, pluralistic universe that combines all godless ideologies.
"However, their main goal and real agenda is to rid the world of all religious ideologies in favor of a secular, godless one".
Though at first glance the motivation behind this movement seems sincere, noble and virtuous, the very subtle hiss of Luciferian (Satanic) mass deception can be distinctly heard. This movement seeks to bring about a godless unification - while rejecting sound moral absolutes - of the scattered inhabitants of nations following the Tower of Babel rebellion ~4,300 years ago (Gen. 11:1-9; Dan. 2:31-35, 37-45; Rev. 13:12-14).
While I was researching this more, I found this version. What can be said about it that it doesn't already say?
As you all know, I visit many different kinds of churches almost daily. Each and every visit is for one reason. Someone has died. Someone's Mother/Father/Daughter/Son/Sister or Brother. When you are faced with death every day, you tend to see life a little differently. I am there to help the living cope with the loss of a loved one. It makes no difference to me what anyone believes about the Here After. We are all here for just a short while. And we should make the most of what we are given. If we get a hundred seconds or a hundred years, we touch the lives around us in so many ways. If you truly want to leave the world a better place for your children, then perhaps we should all start getting along a little better. And start COEXISTing.
If you've stuck with me through this rant, Thank You! and I'd love to read your opinions.
Feel free to comment on other peoples comments as well.
And EVERYONE'S opinions are welcome, because that's how we are here on the
