What Money Can Buy

Found in the subway. This is the sermon, preserving the emphasis:

Money Will Buy

A bed BUT NOT sleep.

Books BUT NOT brains.

Food BUT NOT appetite.

Finery BUT NOT beauty.

A House BUT NOT a home.

Medicine BUT NOT health.

Luxuries BUT NOT culture.

Amusement BUT NOT happiness.
A crucifix BUT NOT a Savior.

A church pew BUT NOT heaven.

The rest is an appeal to let Jesus be your savior.

Seeing how many churches in NYC are being converted into luxury condos, it looks like Jesus is literally losing ground to dead presidents.

On 12th Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues. You can see already how the remains of the church will be completely overwhelmed by the building behind it.

The Christian Scientists will remain on the bottom floor but the upper floors will be residences.

On West 4th Street between 6th Avenue and Washington Square Park. God just can't afford to live in this neighborhood anymore.
