Depends on your church! Last I checked, God offers eternal life as a free gift.
And yet His self-proclaimed mouthpieces still pass the collection plate. Go figure.

And if you decide to refuse the gift? LOL! Now THAT is some sales pitch!
"I'm here to invite you to kiss Hank's feet. If you do, Hank will give you a million dollars. If you don't, Hank'll beat the living crap out of you, forever. Have a nice day."
Unfortunately, many of His self-appointed middle-men represent that gift as contingent, and demand a percentage.
