What Would Jesus Pump?



Churches Battle Over Gas Discounts

from The Associated Press

AUBURN, Calif. - Jesus saves - at the gas pump?

Two rival California congregations are feuding over a cheap gas promotion.

Leaders of the New Life Christian Church offered discounts on gas worth about 50 cents a gallon. Pastor Bill Jenkins said the idea is to show that God is interested in everyday issues.

But members of the Church of the Divide in Grass Valley protested Sunday outside the New Life services. They counter that the gas discount is a marketing gimmick that cheapens religion.

The protesters carried signs reading, "Jesus cares more about your sin and burning in hell than gas prices."
