Quote of the Day: BRAZILLIONAIRES

At first, self was skeptical. A book about billionaires? Who needs that? All she needs to do is watch the nightly news . . .

But, she digresses.

She’s currently on Chapter 5: “Prosperity Gospel.”

An offering is an investment . . .  He who gives everything receives everything from God. It’s inevitable. It’s toma la, da ca — a give-and-take with the Lord. If your life didn’t improve, pastors would say your faith wasn’t strong enough, your sacrifices not painful enough.

The chapter spotlights Brazil’s Universal Church, whose pastors are exceptionally aggressive in asking for donations from their decidedly not-wealthy followers. Their leader tells his pastors: “You have to be a superhero for them. You can never be ashamed, never be shy. Demand, demand, demand.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
