The notion that you could pay for your sins is blasphemous.  In the Bible it clearly states that nothing we can do can reconcile us to God, including paying money.  It is only by accepting God’s free gift of salvation and acknowledging that we are unworthy of it that we may be saved.

Specifically what I had a problem with in this article is that the title is “Pay for your sins online” which is not mentioned in the Stuff article whatsoever, and kind of irks me as poking fun at Christians.

Scratch that, thank you for changing the title to something more appropriate!
