  1. You would think jesus would pay his bills. but i guess not. if you cant loan money to jesus who can you loan to.



    ROSEVILLE, Calif.—Residential and commercial real-estate owners aren't the only ones losing their properties to foreclosure. The past few years have seen a rapid acceleration in the number of churches losing their sanctuaries because they can't pay the mortgage.

    "I just told the bank to take it," Mr. Oliver said. "If you're a church with a piece of property upside down and no one will refinance the loan or lend you more money, there's not really another choice but to walk away."

    He wants to make you quit feeling that there is a creator.
     
  5. my purpose, besides amusement, is to encourage believers to think about what they believe and why they believe it.

    for instance. i watch tv preachers once in a while for amusement. there is one that constantly says if you send him a seed of $1000 jesus will multiply that manyfold. i am curious as to why the people losing their church didnt just send the other preacher a few grand and have jesus multiply the money. problem solved.

    Suppose they tell you it makes them feel better.

    Then what?
     
  8. No

  9. we have to continue to educate even if it seems there is no progress. there are always those lurkers who may be on the fence that have not yet fallen into the cult. they may be reachable.
