The interest has been strong and consistent. However, when I posted evidence that David Jeremiah and Les and Leslie Parrott used the same … [Read more...]

MARSHill Letter Global

A Mars Hill Global donor forwarded this letter to me. In the wake of ongoing questions about how funds donated to Mars Hill Global since 2012 were spent, the church leaders issued this letter to 6,000 donors.This is slightly a reworded statement from the Mars Hill Global FAQ page on the Mars Hill website. In fact, the Global Fund was a giving option until at least May of this year.

No Glenn Beck World Shattering Announcement: Will it Come Monday and Will Beck’s Fans Be Listening?

I must confess, I like watching the reaction of fans and true believers to promises made by leaders of movements and religious groups.
