Proof #10 - Watch the offering plate

Have you ever thought about the offering plate in church? If God is real, why do they have to pass it? If you read these verses in the Bible, you can see that God claims to be extremely powerful and willing to answer any prayer:

Now consider this: Why don't the ministers and deacons of the church gather together every Sunday morning and pray to Jesus for the money they need? Why doesn't Jesus answer their prayers? Why do churches have to beg for money from mere mortals when there is an immortal, all-powerful God who should provide anything they ask for? Here is what "God" is saying: This, of course, is ridiculous.

The reason why they pass the offering plate at church is because God is imaginary.

Understanding the Rationalizations

A Christian might say, "God does answer the minister's prayers -- he sends people to give money to the church!" If this is the case, then the people are puppets, and God is stealing their money by forcing them to give it to the church. The absurdity of that situation is obvious.

If God were answering the prayers of the minister, there would be no need for the offering plate. God would provide the money that the church needs, not people.
