Responding to book burnings

Today a pastor picked up a new car, and it was on the news. What does it take to be so significant that acquiring material goods becomes a headline? How do we go about attaining such fame and acclamation that the world pivots according to our decisions?

The pastor is famous. Famous for planning on burning Korans. His car, the ill-gotten reward of tugging on a true Christian’s heart strings. Some athlete or another offered the pastor a car in exchange for promising not to burn the books. I’ve spent long enough not dignifying the pastor’s antics with a response. So here it goes:

What does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his soul?
