However, the desire to become a minister I did not receive in response to watching Passion.

Minister Charles Simpson has the power to make you a LEGALLY ORDAINED MINISTER within 48 hours!

BE ORDAINED NOW!


As a minister, you will be authorized to perform the rites and ceremonies of the church!

WEDDINGS
MARRY your BROTHER, SISTER, or your BEST FRIEND!
Don't settle for being the BEST MAN OR BRIDES' MAID
Most states require that you register your certificate (THAT WE SEND YOU) with the state prior to conducting the ceremony.

FUNERALS
A very hard time for you and your family
Don't settle for a minister you don't know!
Most states require that you register your certificate (THAT WE SEND YOU) with the state prior to conducting the ceremony.

BAPTISMS
You can say "WELCOME TO THE WORLD! I AM YOUR MINISTER AND YOUR UNCLE!"
What a special way to welcome a child of God.

FORGIVENESS OF SINS
The Catholic Church has practiced the forgiveness of sins for centuries
**Forgiveness of Sins is granted to all who ask in sincerity and willingness to change for the better!

VISIT CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES
Since you will be a Certified Minister, you can visit others in need!
Preach the Word of God to those who have strayed from the flock

WANT TO START YOUR OWN CHURCH??
After your LEGAL ORDINATION, you may start your own congregation!


At this point you must be wondering how much the Certificate costs. Right? Well, let's talk about how much the program is worth. Considering the value of becoming a CERTIFIED MINISTER I'd say the program is easily worth $100. Wouldn't you agree? However, it won't cost that much. Not even close! My goal is to make this life changing program affordable so average folks can benefit from the power of it.

Since I know how much you want to help others, you're going to receive your Minister Certification for under $100.00... Not even $50.00... You are going to receive the entire life-changing course for only $29.95.

For only $29.95 you will receive:
1. 8-inch by 10-inch certificate in color, with gold seal
(Certificate professionally printed by an ink press)
2. Proof of Minister Certification in your name
3. Shipping is free

Questions:

1. What in Sweet Jesus's name does the "Original Message" have to do with becoming an ordained minister?

2. Is this like getting a college degree through the mail from the university of your choice?

Answers?

All I know is, it's such a great email, that it receives my response:

I Sp-am Special.


No. But thanks for sharin' with me, Junita Elliott !!!

I wonder if this is really sanctioned by St. Matthews Church.

Whatever denomination that is from, just like this letter.

They smell of back-yard brew-ha-ha to me.

I don't doubt the power of spiritual phenomenon, but creation of said phenomenon is pretty interesting.

It's a fine line that people walk with these offerings of Jesus rugs and religious emails. I'm not sure what my real and final opinion on it is because I don't have one.

However, it seems silly to send out a "Become Ordained" email offer when I have no idea what 'church' it is in reference.

Not surprising

Someone I used to work with at the Blind & Wallpaper place mailed in for a minister certificate, and would always "remind" me about it. He was in no means qualified, but he had the paperwork. It was quite amusing. Yeah, this is a scam scam scam!

Re: Not surprising

It's also SPAM SPAM SPAM!

What a precious meat.

Hormel's not doing a good job of defending the name of their sacred meat.

The picture is actually from one of the ones I took while at Detroit's Movement festival in 2003.

Watching Detroit techno does that to me.

Hur hur.

I needed the biggest happy face I could find.

That was it.

I really need to borrow my friend's digital camera. People are dying for pictures.

Does that give me the power to condemn people to Hell too?

I would imagine so!

Although, I liked how they compared their power-sale as if it was a Catholic fire-sale.

They should know damn well that Catholics don't give away anything, except for clothes and cans of food to the poor.

I was tempted by the gold seal, but then I thought, nah, I can already raise by eyebrows, widen my eyes, arch back while pointing a finger forward, and shout,

"BlashPHEMER! THE POWER of Christ compels you!"

It's fun to do at parties with lots of alcohol.
