    Wow, this prosperity gospel has really upped its game!

    COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — Please God, give me salvation — and a car.

    That prayer may have been uttered by more than a few people at a Maryland church on Sunday. That’s because Destiny Church in Columbia handed out five used cars to demonstrate God’s goodness and to attract new members.

    The Washington Post reported that the church gave away the cars to increase attendance at its new location. It was the first Sunday at a building in a strip mall for the 7-year-old nondenominational church.

    I'm surprised none are giving out guns (but let me know if you find one). :)

    Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?
    My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends,
    Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
    So oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

    Oh Lord, won't you buy me a night on the town ?
    I'm counting on you, Lord, please don't let me down.
    Prove that you love me and buy the next round,
    Oh Lord, won't you buy me a night on the town ?

    Typo in the Thread Title which I can no longer edit as time is up.
    "Card" should be "Car", but I assume everyone knows that now...

    Charles Finney is alive and well, it seems.
