The Selling Of God

Posted by admin on August 08, 2013

Today I saw a large number of missionaries out on the street. I know for a fact there was more than one church being represented.

??

This made me laugh when I thought about it.

??

The missionaries were trying to get people to go to their church. More than trying to just get people to believe. First came the ???Have you heard the word???? etc. etc. Then they did their best to get you to come to their church, after all their church is the right one.

??

I started to put it together. Their church is not sending out missionaries for the good of a god.

No, far from it. They need you to come to their church. Why you ask? It's all about the offerings.

??

I only know of a few churches that require you to pay to get in. Let's face it. Once you're there they sure do pass the plate, bag, or whatever.

??

I do know that some churches are franchises. Hard to believe but true. Given this information, the question must be asked: what are the missionaries really doing? I'm sure they would say they are spreading the word of God. The church itself, if it were honest, would most likely say selling the church. More butts in the pews means more money for the church. It's as simple as that.

??

This whole thing has become a huge racket. The ???God??? business is a worth billions a year, and that's just in the USA.

??

Just think of all the crap you buy. Crosses, books, not just the bible, dashboard icons, jewelery of all kinds, clothing, pillows, candles. I've seen lighters, shot glasses, bumper stickers, you name it. If it's got something to do with a God, any God, it's something you can buy.

??

Get this: churches don't pay taxes. If they did... Sure the preachers do. They even get special tax breaks for being preachers.

??

Pardon the expression: what the hell! You have to stop and wonder about all of this. Does any of this make points with your God? Is he, or she, sitting on high and laughing their asses off?

??

I for one sure hope so!

??

Sure this piece will piss some people off. GOOD! Maybe it will make someone, anyone stop and think about what they are really doing with the whole business of God.

??

I can only hope!
