Greater Ministries International...

I was sitting in a hotel room this past week and I discovered an incredible story about a very large ministry that told people through televangelism and the glory of god, if they would donate money "God" would give them back double in return. Now this may seem a little too crazy but I have found the wikipedia page and I saw the program with my own eyes and its very, very real.

So real that the I.R.S. had to step in and take control of "God;s" money in order to protect other people from sending their entire retirement checks to "God"... One poor old lady on the show donated over $145,000.00 and at first she was able to go to the chapel and retrieve 4 - 5 thousand dollars at a time....But soon there after the money vanished and there would be none left. No more income for this innocent lady.

This didn't happen in one town or one church, oh no, try all across the world with an estimated revenue in 1999 of 500 MILLION!!!!

The I.R.S. special agents teamed up with the F.B.I. and recovered over 24 MILLION dollars in unclaimed income and they found out that the money was used in third-world-countries for mining and and slavery. That's right, I said slavery!

So people were giving money to "God" just so that the preachers, clerks, and the C.E.O. could live the luxury lives that you see on T.V.

It's almost sad that I'm not surprised by this at all.
