Fuel prices provide pulpits for Evangelicals
Prayers for lower gas prices were answered temporarily, when several separate churches across the country hosted events, where consumers could receive gas gratis or at prices as low as 70 cents a gallon without the evangelical hard sell.
“Gas is a common ground,” one parishioner told the Alabama Press Register. “Someone can tell you that Jesus love you, but it means more with a physical action behind it. I’m sure we’ll get them.”
Further connecting the fuel issue with Christianity, the Evangelical Environmental Network and Christian Care Magazine created an ongoing educational campaign, “What Would Jesus Drive?” to promote the simultaneous need for godly and environmentally efficient transportation choices.
