[Ulterior Verse of the Day] Looking for Borders of Their Own

Posted by Lex Fear on June 10, 2007

“And they admitted that illegal aliens and strangers didn’t belong in their country. People who say such things show that they are happy with the country God has given them to protect. If they had been thinking of leaving their country, they would have been wrong. Instead, they were happy in the country they were born in. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared borders for them to defend.” – Epistle to the Hebrews Ch. 11

Apparently the Devil is seeking to undermine God’s country. And when I say God’s country, I’m obviously talking about America of course.

America is the place God has prepared for us Christians to go when we die, except we better have our passports and visas ready, or we’re all going to Hell with Europe instead.

That was all according to Utah Republican County District Chairman Don Larsen a couple of months ago. Unfortunately the original article has been removed from The Salt Lake Tribune but the comments are still there.

How many people on Earth walk around like they are carrying Passports that will get them into Heaven, while not realising their own ‘visa’ has ‘expired’?

[Inspiration] Ulterior Verse of the Day – Christian Airways

Posted by Lex Fear on December 3, 2006

My congratulations go out to Nadia Eweida on her ‘win’ against her employer, BA over wearing her jewelery at work. Well done for showing them that being a Christian isn’t about a life devoted to Christ, or being forgiven and set free from religion. No, instead, it’s about making sure we wear a piece of jewelery to symbolise every religious thing we stand for.

Now before anyone decides to leave a comment and kindly inform me this has been already been covered and is ‘old news’, I haven’t had an Internet connection for a while and I have something to say about the matter from a born-again Christian perspective, so siddown!

This is my piece- Nadia, you’ve sold Jesus short, you’ve sold us all short! You used the logic that because other religions are allowed to wear their religious articles, that you are entitled to wear your religious article! The whole point of being a Christian is being free from religion, being free from religious and sacrificial requirements! Those other religions are not free, they’re in bondage because it is a requirement they wear certain articles of clothing to keep themselves pure/faithful and sinless. We are free from this bondage and so no Christian has to wear stupid jewelery or clothes!

Why not take a leaf out of St. Peters book and wear an upside down cross? Peter was crucified upside down, why? No it wasn’t because it had anything to do with Satanists, that’s another group of dumb asses who don’t know reality. It was because he requested this, he felt he was not worthy of being crucified the right way up like Christ. So question your conscience, question your worthiness. Perhaps you should be putting more effort into your character to show those around you that you are a Christian, rather than relying on a piece of jewelery. If you have to wear a piece of jewelery so people know you are a Christian, something has to be missing.

Today’s Ulterior Verse is dedicated just to you:

“Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ will be happy with you. I’ll say it again. If you are trying to find favor with God by being circumcised, you will. For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law and religious expression, you have been made one with Christ! You are fully in God’s grace.

We who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by religious expression the righteousness God has promised us. For when we express our religion, there is benefit in being circumcised. What is important is expressing faith through circumcision.” – Galatians 5:2-6 NLT

[Infallibility] Ulterior Verse of the Day: Romans 3:22-24

Posted by Lex Fear on October 1, 2006

“We are made right in God’s sight when we trust in the Pope to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, no matter who we are or what we have done.

For everyone but the Pope have sinned; fallen short of the Popes’ infallibility. Yet now the Pope in his gracious kindness declares us not guilty. He has done this through the ex Cathedra, on this occasion..” – Romans 3:22-24 NLT

Is an apology a sign of admission of error? Depends on whether you are the Pope and you are speaking ex cathedra or not. Today’s Ulterior Verse of the Day was inspired by an article from BBC Magazine. So is the Pope infallible, and just how infallible is he?

It seems to me that you can be both infallible and fallible dualistically, depending on how many people or religious groups you offend.

Some people may question a dichotomy such as this but I can see the benefits of such a theology. I’ve been dying to tell 18-35’s Pastor how much his preaching sucks, and now I think I’ve found a way.

At that time I will put you on trial on terrorism charges. I will be a ready witness against all sorcerers and adulterers and liars. I will speak against those who cheat big corporations out of profits, who oppress middle-income families and council tax payers, or who deprive the native people of their jobs and freedoms- illegal immigrants and foreign terror suspects, for these people do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty.” – Malachi 3:5 NLT

[Inspiration] Ulterior Verse of the Day: James 2:2-4

Posted by Lex Fear on August 13, 2006

“For instance, suppose a celebrity or important person comes into your meeting followed by their helpers and security, and another comes in who is badly dressed and not as important. If you neglect to give the rich celebrity the attention they deserve, they might get offended, or leave, and never come back. So make sure VIPs get special attention.” – James 2:2-4 NLT

[Inspiration] Ulterior Verse of the Day – Mark 17:17-22

Posted by Lex Fear on July 22, 2006

As he was starting out on a trip, a man came running up to Jesus, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what should I do to get eternal life?”
Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good. But as for your question, you know the commandments: `Do not murder. Do not commit adultery. Do not steal. Do not testify falsely. Do not cheat. Honor your father and mother.’
“Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was a child.”
Jesus felt genuine love for this man as he looked at him. “Excellent!” Jesus replied. “Come and follow me we can use your wealth for building the Kingdom, and you can teach the other disciples the secrets to accumulating great wealth (for the Kingdom).Mark 17:17-22 NLT
