Jesus car

I saw an 8-Jesus car today.

One of the "Jesus" sightings on this car was on a bumper sticker. It said, essentially, there is one way to Jesus, but with a symbol in place of 'one way'. The rest of the Jesuses were painted on the car in white paint. Every panel seemed to have it's own slogan containing the word 'Jesus'. Praise Jesus. Jesus is God! Jesus saves. You know, like that. There was one on the back of the car. (The bumper sticker was actually on the back of the hood.) And there was one on the wheel well in the back, and another on the passenger door. And yet another on the front wheel well... hell, that it was an 8-Jesus car is just a guess, assuming the driver's side looked like the passenger side. There could have been more on the hood and front bumper. I was getting off the freeway when I passed it or I would have checked it out more.

Now, sure, the car was beat up and old, and it was an ugly, faded blue (like wedgewood), but c'mon. White paint? Block letters? This didn't help the appearance any...

Why are Christians so insecure that they feel the need to do this? I mean, I have bumper stickers on my car, but I didn't paint "God is dead" all over my passenger door.
