Preaching Prosperity: Financial Missionaries Teach Spending

People in Florida have been holding gathering in churches on Sunday. While that's nothing new, the topic of conversation — money — is. Preacher Kevin Cross (appropriate name) travels to spiritual centers to discuss biblical principles of money management. He thinks finances can be managed in a way that glorifies God, while also keeping believers out of debt.

Cross advizes parishioners to make big changes like returning expensive cars to the dealerships, or getting rid of credit cards altogether. The basic message: God wants you to live within your means.

The all-day sermons involve some rituals, too. Participants cook their credit cards over hot plates or melt them in a toaster oven. Where does it mention that in the Bible?

Im sure that isn't the only thing they speak on, though.

carrie Sue, you are right, it is the reason we are in the finacial mess we are in, people living beyond their means.

Sadly, some people need to hear that, Grandpa...or we wouldn't have people maxing out their credit cards on unnecessary stuff.

Living within your means? OMG, no one ever thought of that, we needed the divine revelation

"While I really appreciate the concept, I kind of doubt melting a credit card in a hot plate is really going to teach people how to live within their means and budget properly." Yes, but it's a start :) I'm sure there's much more to it than that though. Actually, I don't think it's a bad idea at all, depending on how you approached it.

I guess whatever helps but I don't see why people can't figure some of this stuff out for themselves.
