    Attendees to Easter services at EastPoint Christian Church (Portland, ME) gave a special offering of more than $31,500 at the church’s community-wide "Hope Now" celebration. The total amount was donated...

    Now multiply that by several thousand and you will see the light

    Anybody who doesn't reali e that the church is made up of money grubbers has not worked in the business end of one:

    New Buildings
    Building additions
    Building Maintenance
    Preacher's Home
    Preacher's Expenses
    Musical Instruments
    Sound Systems
    Carpeting
    Oak or Mahagony Pews
    Steeples
    Stained Glass
    Youth Programs
    Religious Retreats
    Missionaries
    Percentage to the Denomination or Convention Headquarters
    ETC ETC ETC ETC ETC

    There's precise instructions in Genesis 6 to Noah about the ark but in the entire new testament there's nothing resembling what greedy men have put into practice over the last 2000 years. There are no instructions whatsoever about a church:

    Just another proof positive that god was created in man's image and not the other way round:

    14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

    15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

    16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

    Huh? Do you ever make sense? The fact that you have any pos rep at all is a testimony to the fact that there's a bunch of looney lefties on this board. :lol:
