DIY Confederate Flag Truck Headliners

Published by Nadeem Muaddi on September 28th, 2012

A strange trend is sweeping America’s Southern states. Folks are covering their pickup trucks’ headliners in Confederate flags and sharing photos of their work via Facebook and Twitter.

It appears that most of the work is being done by DIY-ers, not auto upholstery shops. While some flags are glued to their boards, others are merely tucked into their cabins’ moldings.

In all fairness, this trend may have been going on for years. As a Northerner, I haven’t seen enough Confederate flags to know for sure. Here, the symbol is considered more controversial than cultural.

Regardless, I’m not a fan of the look. The flag’s bold colors often clash with the trucks’ interiors – which are usually gray or beige and boring. The end result is more tacky than eye catching.

Then again, you be the judge:

    EXPLANATIOM:

    NO. 1. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET TO HEAVEN THIS WAY. THE BIBLE SAYS:
    [SEE ROMANS 3: 19-28}
    [19] Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
    [20] Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
    [21] But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
    [22] Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
    [23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    [24] Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
    [25] Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    [26] To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
    [27] Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
    [28] Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.[ROMANS 3: 28]

    NO’S 2 ,3 OR 4 THESE THING COULD NEVER SAVE YOU.: THE BIBLE SAYS
    [5] Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; [TITUS 3: 5]

    NO’S 5, 6 OR 7 GOOD WORKS CAN NOT SAVE ANYONE . THE BIBLE STATES:
    [8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.

    NO’S 8, 9, 10 OR 11 WE CAN NOT BE SAVED BY OUR WORKS REGARDLESS
    OF HOW GOOD OR WELL INTENDED. GOD SAVES US BY HIS GRACE [MERCY].
    THE BIBLE SAYS: [6] And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work,
    [ROMANS 11: 6 ]

    NO’S 12 OR 13 WATER BAPTISIM. AND COMMUNION ARE FOR THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY SAVED. IT IS NOT OUR WORK THAT SAVES US, BUT FAITH IN CHRIST. THE BIBLE SAYS: [5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. [ ROMANS 4: 5 ]

    NO. 14 THIS CAN NOT SAVE YOU. THE BIBLE SAYS: [8] That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. [ ROMANS 9: 8 ]
    12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
    [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
    [ JOHN 1: 12-13 ]

    NO’S 15, 16, 17 OR 18 THESE ARE MAN MADE DOCTRINES AND ARE NOT TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE. GOD SAYS: [9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. [ MATTHEW 15: 9 ]
    NO NONE OF THESE THINGS CAN SAVE YOU.
    YOU CAN DO NOTHING TO EARNETERNAL LIFE. IT IS FAITH IN THE LORD [ JESUS CHRIST ] ALONE THAT CAN SAVE YOU.
    [39] And by him [ CHRIST ]all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. [ ACTS 13: 39 ]

    THE WAY TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT FOUND IN WHAT WE DO OURSELVES, BUT BY HAVING A PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS GIVEN TO US. WE RECEIVE THIS WHEN WE BELIEVE THE LORD [ JESUS CHRIST ] TOOK OUR SINS ON HIMSELF AND PAID FOR THEM BY HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS.
    [21] For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. [ 2ND CORINTHIANS 5: 21]

    YOU DO NOT RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE BY WORKING FOR IT OR BY TRYING TO MAKE YOURSELF BEHAVE , YOU RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE BY BELIEVING THE RECORD GOD GAVE OF HIS SON. REMEMBER , IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THESE STATEMENTS YOU ARE CALLING GOD A LIAR.

    [10] He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    [11] And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    [ 1 ST. JOHN 5: 10- 11 ]

    GOD IN HIS SOVEREIGNTY, PERMITS MANS DESTINY TO DEPEND ON MANS CHOICE. [18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [ JOHN 3: 18]

    AFTER YOU ARE SAVED, OBEDIENCE TO GOD BRINGS LOVE, JOY. PEACE AND HAPPINESS INTO YOUR LIFE . [22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    [23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. [ GAL. 5: 22-23 ]
    WHEN WE DISOBEY GOD, HE WILL PUNISH US, BUT OUR PUNISHMENT WILL NEVER BE HELL. {GOD } DEALS WITH US AS A FATHER DEALS WITH HIS SON.
    [15] If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. [ 1ST COR. 3: 15 ]
    [5] To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. [ 1ST COR. 5: 5 ]
    GOD WILL NEVER CAST US OUT OR LOSE US. [32] But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. [ 1ST. COR. 11: 32 ]

    [37] All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
    [38] For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
    [39] And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.[ JOHN 6: 37-39 ]

    DOSEN’T IT MAKE SINCE TO BELIEVE IN THE ONE WHO CAME BACK FROM THE DEAD AND TRUST HIM FOR THE PAYMENT OF YOUR SIN? WHY NOT DO IT RIGHT NOW? YOU CAN BE SHURE OF GOING TO HEAVEN WHEN YOU DIE.
    HE REALLY DOES LOVE YOU. RIGHT NOW, WHY NOT EXCEPT THE PAYMENT HE HAS MADE FOR YOUR SINS AND YOU CAN KNOW YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

    [13] These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. [ 1 ST. JOHN 5: 13]

    CHRIST DIED… THATS HISTORY
    CHRIST DIED FOR ME… THATS SALVATION

    [16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever [ YOUR NAME GOES HERE____________________________________] believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [ JOHN 3: 16 ]

    FRIEND, IF YOU CAN SINCERLY PUT YOU NAME IN THE BLANK SPACE ABOVE, ON THE AUTHORITY OF GODS WORD, YOU CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

    [47] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. [ JOHN 6: 47 ]

      Where in the Bible does it is saying that you are not saved and you are going to Hell if you own a confederate flag. I see what you are doing is trying to twist the Holy word of God to explain your reasoning. I’ll not use the Bible that way, because all you pointed out was that by being saved you can go to heaven, through Jesus Christ alone, not from any church, or any type of doctrine. No one has the right to insinuate that you will go to Hell for having a confederate flag to explain their heritage. I feel sorry for you and your church. May the peace of God glorify you and and forgive each of us. we were taught as we were young in school, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    I put camo material on a headliner a couple months ago, and we’re doing it again this week. Those looked good because we do it right. I’ve not been asked about a confederate flag. But we’d make sure it was a professional install if we did do one. I would, however, refuse to put an American Flag in the roof of a vehicle. I’m not going to deface my country’s image whether or not we have a president who doesn’t give a damn either way.

  3. Richard Short says:

    I want to say that people from up north don’t understand the thinking of this. This is not intended for hate, it is intended for Heritage. I don’t know if you haves statues of
    any of the Heroes of the war between the two great nations divided. It wasn’t because of right to free Black people, the people from the north had slaves also. It was over commerce, the goods that we were raising and selling to the northern people. However lets talk about statues, how would you like it if you had to tear down these because I don’t like them that is associated with the wars between the states. I am so sorry that you want the confederacy to have nothing as our heritage, but you are allowed to keep yours.
    I have never owned a slave, no one who is black now living has never been a slave. You know what this is about and I don’t have to go any further with this. I am not angry, I just don’t understand what all this uproar is about. I wish you the best and I feel you need to reconsider your thinking on this,
