In the movie, Oh God!, Jerry Landers discovers very quickly and humorously that God's kingdom and very presence are not part of everyone's experience. First, he receives a note from God asking for a meeting. Then during the meeting, all Jerry hears is a voice claiming to be that of God. It seems God has a message that he wants Jerry to deliver to the rest of the world. Eventually, God makes himself visible by taking on the appearance of a kindly old man played by George Burns. Hesitantly, Jerry is won over by God and begins to carry out his divinely appointed tasks.

Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
