Vanguard For Jesus
Jesus. The name doesn’t really attract attention when walking by a church. But when it prominently appears in an unusual setting, you can’t help but notice.
The parked gray van was adorned with messages painted with bright golden lettering. The owner was sitting in the front passenger seat, talking to a passerby who shared similar beliefs.
I asked the owner if it was OK to take some photographs. She agreed, seeing my interest as an opportunity to spread her message.
As I grabbed a few pixel pix, she told me that she bought the van for only $100. When I was imaging the hood, the self-proclaimed reverend asked me if I knew what the biblical quote meant, the one on the driver’s side. She explained that the quote from Revelations meant that all churches who received non-profit status from the federal government were under its control and therefore under the control of Satan.
Apparently the Number of the Beast is 501(c).
