The “Coexist” bumper sticker

I was driving home from work today when I spotted a “Coexist” bumper sticker on theCE back of the car in front of me. You’re no doubt familiar with these stickers. In place of the letters C-o-e-x-i-s-t, the sticker substitutes symbols of various religious and humanistic belief systems. The original design was created by Polish graphic artist,  Piotr Mlodozeniec, in 2000 and has been revised by several others.

A few sources describe the symbols as follows:

  • The C with the star is the crescent moon, the symbol for Islam.
  • The O is the symbol for peace.
  • The E includes the symbols for male & female with some also saying the “e” is symbolic of science (i.e., E=mc2).
  • The X is the star of David, symbol for Judaism.
  • The I is dotted with a Wiccan pentagram.
  • The S is the symbol for the yin-yang, supposedly representing Eastern religions such as Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.
  • The T is the cross, the symbol for Christianity.

The symbols allegedly signify the capability or desire of humans to live together in peace.

Every genuine, born-again believer who sees that sticker knows better. There is only one way to ultimate peace and salvation and that’s through Jesus Christ. All other religions are idolatry. When I see a car brandishing a Coexist bumper sticker, I say to myself, that poor soul doesn’t know Jesus. We need to tell more people about the Savior. I surely try to love all people but I don’t respect their idolatrous religions.

But the leader of a 1.2 billion member “christian” denomination teaches something very similar to that bumper sticker. The Catholic pope declares that people of all religions can be saved “if they follow the light they’ve been given” and are “good.” He says EVEN atheists will be saved if they “follow their consciences” and are “good.” That message is straight from hell. Every born-again believer who embraces the Catholic church as Christian needs to turn off TBN and start reading their Bible again.

“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.” – Matthew 10:34-36

  1. A few years ago during the Boston Marathon Bombing the terrorists hijacked a guy with what I believe was a Jetta and a “Co-exist” bumper sticker…I remember seeing that on the news and can’t helped but to think of the irony…

  2. Yes, I cringe about every time I see that. The reality is that its implications are that every belief must (in actuality) give up their convictions for the ‘greater good’ of getting along with others. It is a strictly humanist which actually devalues every one of the implicated religions. Those who accept humanism as their religion are, therefore proselytizing others with it – it is actually quite subtle and deceptive.

    Keep standing on that solid rock, brother! Tell it like it is!
