Ok. So I know I'm going to probably get criticized but..... If the church wanted to do something like that, maybe they shoulda thought about doing it at a different time of day. 3:00? I mean COME ON... Schools are letting out... Traffic is already bad enough that time of day. I do think it was an awesome thing to do for people. What a great way to give to the community. Just think they should have done it at a completely different time of day...

They wanted to bless 200 people so, they chose a busy time to get more people. This was a wonderful thing to do. God bless them and all the people they helped.

Maybe they could have gone to the gas company and paid some outstanding bills for people.

Just like in Jesus day when he healed the sick, raised the dead and fed the 5000 and went about doing all manner of good the Pharisees were waiting to talk about him. They said this is the wrong day, wrong time or he has a devil. It is no different today. Crossroads Church you did a wonderful thing one of many that people know nothing about.

what the church did was very thoughtful. on the news channel, i did not see a car pushed to the pump because it was out gas. for the most part the cars looked nice, like the owner could pay for their own gas. what i'm trying to say is, in madison county there are some children that go to bed hungry and cold every night. some want get a good hot meal until school starts back in january.. i would like to see any donation from anyone or any organization going to god's pantry or to utility companys to help those who needs it the most.

god bless crossroad's church for what they did for the community.

They should have just handed out gas gift cards at the light. Then maybe I wouldn't have waited 45 mins getting to that light. These people just wanted attention, they didn't care that some people actually had to be some where, they did not think how this could effect people who had appointments that they needed to be at

I agree 100%. And for $10 of free gas? WOW, that's a whole 3 gallons of gas. They could have done something a lot better with their money. Angel trees, food banks, salvation army. All that did was bring out the greedy in people because they were so pissed off sitting there.

Yes!!! There are children that go to bed hungry, that is why 2 weeks out of the year this church holds a kids camp for free. All meals provided, snacks, drinks, stuff sent home, field trips all day so that these kids get some kind of vacation. Also 2 weeks ago they took brand new shoes to children who may not have new shoes, so just because you dont see whats going on doesnt mean it isnt. Also it's not on your time, it's on Gods time and its when they feel to do it. It was not for a show this was money out of there pocket's. They also host a community fest everyear completely free of charge! You get lunch, popcorn candy, bouncy houses, live music, and dinner and a movie and its all free so next time you want to talk about hungry kids think first because alot of times you dont know what your talking about.

If they would have handed out gift cards they would have just used them to buy Mt. Dew and cigarettes. Next time they need to check with everyone in Berea to see if they have an appointment somewhere. Why don't you go crawl back under the rock you crawled out from. You can't buy the kids anything or do anything for most of them because their pill pooping dope smoking parents will take it back to the store and get the money back on it and no I don't attend this church but i am thankful we have such a loving giving church here in Berea. They don't need your attention they are getting plenty, their church is full every Sunday. Maybe you should check it out. Thank You Pastor Jonas and Susan Hill!!!!

How much free gas have you given anyone lately? How many angels did you take of the Angel Tree? How much food did you give to a food bank or The Salvation Army?

There are GAS gift cards that you can only use for GAS! Love how you show your true hatefull Christian attitude, most Christians pretend to be nice, not you though, you show what Christians are really like.

I agree with one of the statements here, that was a wonderful gift to the community---but, the people that got the gas, some of them may not have needed it, the people who really did need it couldn't be there, because they were out of money & couldn't get to the station, I know some really nice wealthy people & I also know some very, very, greedy wealthy people that don't think twice about taking from the poor, they are the first in line.--- just sayin'---that's life & we have to live it. Only God Knows & He said the poor will always be with us. We need The Christmas Spirit with us everyday, & I know there are many good people in Berea that really do care & try to help others all the time. I speak from personal experience. May God Bless Each & every one all over the World according to His Will,I humbly ask in Jesus' Name. Amen.

So how many outstanding gas company bills have you paid for the indigent ?

A bunch of God fearing nobles pooled their funds together and did a precious thing in the name of the Lord. It blessed some people and demonstrated a witness of God's love. Lord be praised! Don't murmur or grumble against the act of God's love in motion. Join it. You feel compelled concerning over due gas bills for the indigent? Go pay it. Garner some like minded people who may have placed this in their hearts. Express the Love of God in force with humility. Don't grumble. Charge into the promised land in the confidence of God's faithfulness in your heart.
Peace.

Matthew chapter 6- read it. The pastor called the news station, they put it all over Facebook. What they did was wrong all the way around. The one place you can buy pornography to? They may have a heart to give but they needed to give it to the people whom really needed it.
not true

First: Get ur facts straight. The pastor did not call the news station. Second: Im sure that there were people in the line that needed the gas. It's not on the church or the pastor's hands if people got the gas who didnt need it. The bottom line is it was not done for anyone but God. Untill you have preached, or had a church then its not your place to tell him how to run his church. It wasnt your money so dont worry about it. Why would you care so much about it if its not your money? Give to the people who need it you say?? They do!!! Gave shoes to kids this christmas, fed families, serve the whole city of Berea every Sept in the Community Fest which offers 2 free meals, a kids camp for 2 weeks every summer for FREE!!! Which gives alot of kids who have nothing to do all summer and who may not have meals get fed, taken on trips, and fun for no charge!! So just because they didnt do what you think they should have done, doesnt mean anything. You dont know what goes on...and I dont remember you sitting on the throne and dying for anyone's sins. If God put it on their hearts to do that then...doesnt really matter what you think they should have done with the money. In the end...it's for God, its to save souls and to make people feel love. Doesnt matter who you are, what you've done, if you needed it or not. God was behind the blessing and that's all that mattered
