WORLD—Heavenly messengers confirmed Thursday the addition of a tenth fruit of the Spirit which is to be added to the list of traits in the book of Galatians that characterizes believers in Christ: the inner-wrist tattoo.
The new text of Galatians Chapter 5, verses 22 and 23 will now read: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, and an inner-wrist tattoo; against such things there is no law.”
The angelic messenger revealed to reporters that this type of tattoo has been a bellwether of true Christianity for at least a decade.
“We almost went with Christian-fish car decals, but the inner-wrist tattoo won out as unmistakable fruit of a true believer. Especially if it’s in Hebrew—something like ‘It is well,’ ‘Redeemed,’ or ‘Child of the King.’ Or even just a basic cross works, if you’re boring,” the figured clothed in brilliant light said in a morning press conference. “The location is critical, as it can be hidden with long sleeves when formality requires, but anytime the Jesus-follower wears a Tee shirt or even just slightly rolls his or her sleeves up—boom, everyone knows how hardcore their faith is.”
At publishing time, the messenger confirmed that foot tattoos on females would suffice as well.
