Lance Wallnau and Rick Joyner want your money

Lance Wallnau, Rick Joyner, David Yarnes, Rich Marshall, and Eric Metaxas want your money. Seriously, they are promoting a Kingdom Business Conference, which they say,

The Kingdom Business Association has gained amazing traction, becoming a format for prophetic insight that has proved accurate and desperately needed for these times. If you are a Christian business person, or have a marketplace ministry, you will not want to miss this conference.

Seriously, that’s all that I can find. Here are the media sets from the 2008 conference.

This conference is devoted to teaching the most powerful and effective kingdom principles that are a proven foundation for success for those engaged in business leadership and management in almost any field.  It is also devoted to confirming prophetically the calling of those who come, and to impart prophetic vision that can help shape our times. – Rick Joyner

Here’s the catch,

$50/person (same price applies to children).

That’s right, they supposedly have a gift that they want to share with you, but they are going to charge you an arm and a leg for it. Here’s a hint – if you can afford $50 a head to attend this conference, and you are willing to pay for it, then you will need this conference because you will soon be out of business. Better yet, set up your own website with it and put a conference yourself. I guarantee you to at least double that $50 bucks of yours.

Madoff case brings out the bigots

NEW YORK – Of all the words that have been used to describe the Bernard L. Madoff scandal, the most emotionally charged may be “Jewish.”

The disgraced investment guru is accused of orchestrating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme that preyed heavily on fellow Jews and ultimately drained the fortunes of numerous Jewish charities and institutions.

There’s nothing new about con artists targeting their own kind. There’s even a word for it — affinity fraud — and it has struck numerous religious, ethnic and professional groups.

But the allegations against Madoff are particularly wrenching for some in the Jewish community, who fear that the sensational case is fanning vicious stereotypes about Jews that go back to the Middle Ages.

The Anti-Defamation League cites a spike in anti-Semitic comments online after Madoff’s Dec. 11 arrest. A columnist for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz lamented the case as “the answer to every Jew-hater’s wish list.”

And the American Jewish Committee’s executive director, David A. Harris, wrote a letter to The New York Times criticizing what he saw as “a striking emphasis” on Madoff’s faith in one of the paper’s many stories about the scandal.

The case is “fodder for the bigots,” Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL’s national director, said in an interview this week with The Associated Press. “It’s both embarrassing and it’s painful.”

I saw this floating around the web, and the msm, last week, but last night this caught my attention. If you skip to the bottom, you will see that he preyed on the charitable and the hopeful – the religious. I do not believe people are born evil – but this guy nearly makes me change my mind.
