New Novel Questions Organized Religion’s Loyalties
“How Much Does God Co$t?” appears to be against the church at first glance but quite the opposite is true; Quinn, a Christian and preacher’s daughter, offers readers an awakening experience through the raw observations she makes in the pages of her book. She forces readers to analyze the doctrine they are following and question if they are truly serving God’s law or those created by man. Quinn states:
The people are being led to believe that the only way to get God to move on their behalf is to show him (with their money) how much faith they have. While at the same time, the only one to reap the actual benefit is the false teacher of that man-made doctrine.
In “How Much Does God Co$t?,” Quinn warns readers of participating in the very church Jesus warned his followers about – one of hypocrites. She discusses the traditions of men such as tithing, preachers using their positions for personal gain and fame, the physical establishment of the church and how the church body has turned church into a social club. She firmly believes that the spirit of God does not dwell in the church building itself but in his people, his true church. According to Quinn, the sacrifice of Jesus paid for all of his followers’ sins and tithing is an unnecessary practice that puts his death in vain. How much does God cost? According to Quinn, God is free.
In addition, she uncovers through her own research that 87% of those professing to be devout Christians admittedly don’t have time to actually study the bible or scriptures outside of their church attendance, reaffirming the idea of church as a social club. Many Christians are moving through the motions of practicing their faith but Quinn worries their hearts are not truly serving God. Quinn writes:
In other words, if you could fully obey the law and pay for your own trespasses, then Jesus died in vain. What I believe this passage of scripture to be saying is this, if you are going to insist on keeping any portion of the Old Testament Law, then God will require of you to keep the whole law in its entirety! Why hold on to only the tithing part Pastor, Rev. Preacher Man? It is bondage and certainly a bondage that Christ’ death freed us all from! That is, of course, if you have the faith to believe that the blood of Jesus was sufficient enough. Our debt is paid in full and we are free to enjoy victory, peace, promises, and dreams of a better future. And it is all because Christ paid the price for us and not because we pay a tithe.
