    Leaving aside the evangelists honestly on the path of propagating their religion with honest belief that its the correct faith and if the whole world or at least a bigger portion of the world converts its great, in this post I address those evangelists who's business is evangelism. Bottomline is, the money comes from it.

    Lets take one evangelists who is quote well known and has been vying for a Phd for a long long time so that he could call himself a doctor which is a nice catch phrase to do fishing for people. Ultimately he did a Phd on the topic of one other evangelist in India. Yep. He got his doctorate with this thesis. Whats that again? The thesis was on an evangelist in India. Wow.

    Is it correct to assess this as dishonesty? How could a Phd on one mans life speak of scholarship he never studied in his life? How do people believe these kind of people's ideas like mice to a pied piper?

    Moral: Sheering sheep can be very profitable if you are willing to invest in the right tools.

    The true spirit of true faith is corrupted in so many places throughout the world. Service to humanity through promotion of the Word of God has become poisoned by blatant self interest of some religious leaders. Little wonder the lights of religion have become dimmed and the pure in heart are repulsed.
