First, there was Rod Parsley saying that Satan has been messing around with his bank accounts and needs a massive infusion of cash to fight his demonic plan, here. Now, fellow Evangelical pastor Rick Warren has asked for roughly a million dollars from his faithful due to a few end of the year shortfalls in cash flow. Given these calls to the faithful, I wish to add my own discovery of a demonic plan to deny me of ready cash and call upon everyone on this blog to send me money immediately to fight for righteous and redemptive blogging.
Warren, who was the controversial choice of President Barack Obama to given the inaugural prayer, sent an “urgent letter” to all of the parishioners to the Saddleback Church Web stating, “With 10 percent of our church family out of work due to the recession, our expenses in caring for our community in 2009 rose dramatically while our income stagnated.” While not blaming Satan ala Parsley, Warren warned followers that “the bottom dropped out” and that “[o]n the last weekend of 2009, our total offerings were less than half of what we normally receive — leaving us $900,000 in the red for the year.”
Warren is the author of numerous books, including the best-selling “The Purpose Driven Life.” The purpose now appears to remain solvent at Saddleback.
