I think I just got a christian chain letter!
I remember as a kid getting real chain letters in the mail long before email.
They all were for good luck, some were trying to sell something, some were just to scare people.
I haven't seen one since well Jr. High maybe.
Today I got an envelope with April 2012 on the outside and prayers on the envelope with key words under lined.
Contents of envelope:
Explanation with an area to mark your prayer needs.
An insert explaining the good fortune of someone who followed the contents of the envelope.
Postage paid return envelope.
Prayer mat(large folded paper) with the image of Jesus on it and instructions.
Sealed letter with instructions not to open until certain things are met(I didn't read the do not open until I opened it, wasn't paying
Warning on outside of sealed paper.
- Only break open this sealed prophecy after
you have put this Church Prayer Rug
and your prayer requests
the mail to this 61-year-old church ministry.
If for any reason you are not going to return this Church Prayer Rug, then this sacred prophecy must be destroyed, unopened and unread,
this is a sacred, spiritual prophecy,
sealed word, concerning you and your future.
Remember the Bible
"let your requests be made known unto God
" Phillippians 4:6
I bolded the words they had in red/bold and Italics the word God because they had it faded not as dark as the black ink.
I understand that they are trying to solicit a donation, but the whole thing strikes me as odd.
I've never heard of a Christian chain letter.
The whole changing the color of words makes sense to draw my attention, but it seems random so I wonder if they were trying something subliminal.
The church is St. Matthew's Churches based in Tulsa Oklahoma.
The pictures are too big to host on the ATS site so I am putting up Photobucket links.
So is anyone else getting religious chain letters, actual physical touchable letters in the mail?
What is with all the random underlining?
Has anyone heard of this church before?
Is this a real church, just finding a novel way to solicit donations?
So many questions, and I figured some on hear might find this interesting or get a kick out of it.
Heck if this gives someone peace reading the pictures good for you.
If this just annoys you that someone would send a religious chain letter good for you too.
I will be blocking off the address on the pictures since I'm not sure if I am allowed to post them for legal reasons.
More pictures to follow after this post(still scanning them in and editing out the address.)
