When I had a car I favored the lizard, simply because it was the cheapest for me.

Btw, excellent poll! More!

The in-laws own the insurance agency, so whichever one they've set me up with.

Progressive. Sad, as we'd rather use a true mutual (mind you, most "mutuals" aren't), but the price can't be beat and we're poor people.

Isn't insurance a vote of no confidence in God's protection?

Regardless of my view of God's providence, it's a requirement of the state.

We have to live in a physical world, which God created. I don't think God wants us to have car accidents, but sometimes we do. We have to take into account the legal and medical consequences of accidents. I think insurance is no more sinful than going to the doctor. People did the latter in ancient times, I don't see why it would be sinful for us now.

It's a little more complicated than that. We take precautions all the time, from fire extinguishers to armies to fertilizing the vegetable patch. Where insurance gets a bad rap is two reasons (I can think of): the life insurance furor of the '50s, which was accompanied by all sorts of unsavoriness; and the way insurance companies' real job is the money market, and how they manage to stay obscenely rich. Personally, I find the element of gambling, and the element of I-have-a-rich-person's-right-to-be-problem-free troubling. I also doubt insurance is anywhere near as good a deal as its promoters present it to be. But, at any rate, an insurance premium is only money, and, as Agabus notes, it's the law (which raises a whole other subject).

One could make the argument that baptism is a lack of confidence in God's salvific power ...

God may well have protected me, but if he did not protect the heathen scum that ran into me, there could be some financial issues that need to be dealt with.
