    i honestly think its just a money and energy sink thats all. nothing special about it, wouldnt be suprised tho if somehow its included in the updated missions to force people to waste some money on it

    But the responses are too enticing! There must be something about them.†

    I like Torn mysteries... Don't you be telling me I just wasted 16mil for nothing! XD

    Energy Sink..No. I don't think so.

    But Money Sink, could be.

    They'll then come up with a mission where you have to donate a bit to the church or something and then we'll realize that all the other donations were waste.

    Yeah, I can't even find the nice thresh-hold.†

    Everything under 267k gets scoffed at. Literally I gave him $266,500 and he said†‚ That‚s kind of insulting you know... Do you know how much this building costs to maintain?"


    Then everything over 267k and he's going to buy a Lamborghini or he shouts 'Sweet Jesus, Mary and Joseph" in my face.†

    I just spent 16mil trying to narrow down the thresh-hold but it seems to move a little because sometime $266,700 would yield a result that seems to say "that's too much" and sometimes the same number had a result that says "that's too little".

    So I really don't know where the threshold could be. Everything I tried less that 265k or so yielded a "that's not enough" reply.

    I don't even know what is it based on. For me, it's a mere 10-20k. So high for you.

    My original thought was that perhaps it could be a percentage of the money you have on hand... (I had 16mil on hand) But then it never seemed to go down. Then I tried praying to see if that would affect the responses, it had no effect at all.†

    i think its way more likely that awareness would have an effect on city finds.
    i also believe its an energy sink because you know there is people who gonna spend all their energy praying and then spend money on a refill.

    i think its just a big prank by ched so he could sit there and laugh while people think their is a hidden reason for the church lol

    Lol if that is the case, I suspect they'll even have an event where atheists burn down the church and we have to pay again to open it like the rehab situation.

    Ched seems to enjoy inserting mysteries with no end into the game.

    Example: When he released updates to part of torn at a time for slow testing and some people got a blue name in user bar that has been speculated about "how you get it" ever since. Hint: No one has gotten it since (so get the hint)

    Example 2: Gym, honestly no one has it people in torn couldn't keep a secret if their lives depended on it, there's nothing to it. The mystery was intended to get people to spend their money unlocking every special gym trying to get to it (it worked).

    Example 3: Church...save your money guys, honestly.

    The blue name was for over $1000 donated till I know.

    But I agree with you.

    My 100M donation did not bring me anything.

    Donated like 100k until got the response with the faith shit. Didn't find anything but it might be biased since I just had found an item 20 minutes prior trying.

    I'm poor so first i donated like 2k. then 100. 100. 100. 50. 50. 50. He's an ugrateful sod that's for sure that little prick. So after I got angry I figured, best pray. So i prayed 3 times. Then i found a kitten plushie. Coincidence or god dropped a kitten out of the sky? Dum dum duuuuummmm...

    Edit: Did another search after posting and found a chamois plushie. The first time i found items was on day one of respo, and I don't think i donated, but i did pray. I found 3-4 items that day, weapons and a necklace. I've search ever since and found nothing, then today after my smaller donations and praying. I defo think it's worth testing, but not sure it's worth the high amounts you guys have been putting in. At least not at first. Perhaps a later test if this was confirmed is to see what allows for higher value items as I've only found cheap stuff.†

    My awareness is at either 5-6.†

    This could be something too. I also prayed both the times I tested and got results.

    There are people who would have paid that in one go if Ched had confirmed it. It makes no business sense for him to keep that a secret.

    WTF is going on?

    Amt Donated: $1
    Result: †A most charitable donation, my child.
    Items found: None

    Amt Donated: $1
    Result: I forgive you for your sins
    Items found: None

    Amt Donated: $1
    Result: I forgive you for your sins
    Items found: None

    Amt Donated: $10
    Result: May the Lord be with you
    Items found: None

    Amt Donated: $10
    Result: May the Lord be with you
    Items found: None

    Amt Donated: $10
    Result:Let your faith guide you
    Items found: None

    I think the amount that justifies whether the priest is satisfied depends on another variable, it surprising how for some people, the priest can only be pleased with amounts over 600k, yet with me, $1 can get the priest overflowing with joy.

    Before the initial test, the total amount I had donated was $1
