Hear all about it! God wants you to be rich, and we know it because the Bible, although not a science textbook, is really a manual for free-market enterprise! Mike Huckabee endorses it! Glenn Beck endorses it! With those imprimaturs, and God’s, how can you possibly go wrong?
The huckster Chad Hovind is the son of disgraced Kent Hovind, the young-earth creationist evangelist who bilked millions of dollars out of his flock and is serving ten years in prison for tax fraud, obstructing federal agents, and other crimes. Chad seems to be following in his footsteps.
As you might expect, you’re gonna have to give the Lord some dosh before he blesses you manyfold in return. Hovind will be glad to sell you any number of Godonomic$ DVDs and books, including the “Big Six Package” for only $294.99 (regularly $377.80).
My two questions.
1. How does this differ from the “prosperity theology” of Creflo Dollar?
2. Is this organization a tax-exempt church?
