Trucks ‘n Jesus
On the Goad Again
To sidestep the risk of sounding like a snob, I won’t postulate why the trucking community is so in love with Jesus. You can draw your own conclusions, but regardless of what you find it is abundantly clear that Jesus can be found co-piloting most 18-wheelers along our nation’s vast stretches of lonely highways.
With a name like Covenant Transport it should come as no surprise that this one trucking company draws so much confirmation bias from the frothy religious contingent in all those conservative, god-fearing red States.
And if their company name isn’t nauseating enough for you, consider that all of their trucks prominently display the declaration: IT IS NOT A CHOICE, IT IS A CHILD.
Rejoice Marriage Ministries dedicates an entire page of their website to Covenant Transport sightings as proof of god’s involvement in the lives of those so desperately in need of divine confirmation.
This miraculous sighting in North Carolina is one of my favorites:
“I’ve been asking God to answer prayers so that I can give Him glory. I was feeling discouraged due to circumstances. I asked God to clearly show me that my marriage would be restored. The next day as I was driving home from work I was passed by a Covenant Transport truck. I have never seen one in this area. It was like God writing on the wall. To God be the Glory. I look forward to what He will do next.”
And I love this guy’s blog testimony. Describing his ride he says:
“Next, look at the colors. The dark stripe running the full length of the vehicle represents sin and how it stains our life. The red represents the Blood of Christ that covers our sin. The white represents how clean we are after Jesus has washed our sin away.”
Covenant’s About Us page declares:
“As a company founded on Christian principles, we believe that businesses who are too busy patting themselves on the back don’t have a hand to offer their customers. After all, this isn’t about us. It’s about you.”
Lovely. Now cleanse your palate with a little taste of the REAL Covenant.
