How many times is God mentioned in the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous?

Some groups are taking God out of the meetings even though A.A. was founded on biblical principles,let's see who can count the references to God.


If you try to tell me the words "higher power" are substituted you are mistaken...

Update 2:

140 times to be exact....

so go tell your A.A. friends to get back to God when they get a chance.
