MONROE - Monroe fire officials set damage at $700,000 after lighting struck and burned down a 62-foot-high Jesus Christ statue and an adjacent amphitheater at Solid Rock Church late Monday.

Church leaders are vowing to rebuild the iconic "King of Kings" statue - also dubbed "Touchdown Jesus" - which alone was valued at $300,000.

Monroe Fire Capt. Richard Mascarella said the other $400,000 in damage was to the amphitheater when flames from the sculpture spread to the back wall and roof.

It's only an act of god when it is in your favor. This was just a random natural occurrence.

That's one of the things I hate most about the modern church. Many continue to spend money on huge, expensive buildings instead of helping people with that money.

What would Jesus say about all this?

"How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God. It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God!"

I agree. But it's not just the modern church. Look at most of the history of the church. They used the money to build ridiculous churches and fund wars and ignored all those in need.
