Texas Church Offers Free Cars and Free Heaven


From Go San Angelino Standard Times

"Come to church for the first time and leave an hour later with a car!" - Bill Cornealius, pastor of Bay Area Fellowship Church, Corpus Christi

You’ve never seen an Easter egg hunt like this before.

Bay Area Fellowship, the largest church in Corpus Christi, is giving away flat-screen televisions, skateboards, Fender guitars, furniture and 15 cars — yes, cars — at its Easter services.

And even those who don’t win big will walk away with something. The church has gathered donations for 15,000 gift bags, each with about $300 worth of free goods and services.

“We’re going to give some stuff away and say, ‘Imagine how great heaven is going to be if you feel that excited about a car,’ ” lead Pastor Bil Cornelius said. “It’s completely free — all you have to do is receive him.”

He hopes the prizes will help Bay Area lure some people who don’t normally go to church or those who have lapsed in their faith.

Editor's note: Is the price Christ paid on the cross not sufficient, Pastor? Apparently if the salt is lost, it's ok to conjure up substitutes.
