1867 Christian Confederacy Star of David Stonewall Jackson Accept Jesus 500 Dollar Bill?

This morning, I encountered stacks and stacks of the following “currency” stuffed all over the place in Central Maine:

Born Again Christian Star of David Confederate Flag 500 Dollar Bill???

I cannot for the life of me figure this out. Can you help me understand what…

… the Confederate flag
… Jewish Stars of David
… Christian demands that you accept Jesus and be born again
… a portrait of Stonewall Jackson and
… odd references to the year 1867

are doing on a fake $500 bill?

I have a vague sense I should be upset about this “currency,” but honestly I just can’t get past flummoxed.

    Where’s the shoe, or the little dog that would signify Monopoly?

  • I will try but this is a theory so dont go casting stones. There were a total of over 500 witnesses to the resurrection, maybe thats the 500.00. Jesus was of course Jewish and in the lineage of David which is traced a couple of times, so thats for the star of David. But as to any history of the confederate flag and christianity I cannot locate any link. My understanding of anyone reading the scriptures there is no Greek or Jew, no slave or free,etc. So this is probrobly someones attempt at soliciting some type of anger or outrage, again something outside what believers are instructed to do by Jesus Himself. So with that said, please do not associate this with Jesus for this reason: If someone claims to know and follow Jesus but mixes the inherent facts of the Word of God with something that creates confusion and division and would leave itself open to private interpretation(like this fake bill) is not standing for the truth that was and is promoted and embraced by Jesus.
    . He only promoted sound thoughts that aimed at bringing men togetjet in peace, so much so that it cost him His life. Thanks everyone

    I got one of those strange bills… I found it in a book or something like that, 4 years ago, and since I’ve always wondered what it was exactly…
