Brian McLaren asks for significant cash for mystery project

On his blog, Brian McLaren is making a mysterious appeal for money. Not just a few dollars, but big, bodacious financial support from those with deep pockets. What’s it for? Brian won’t say, but if you want to contribute, you could email him at a special “happy to help” address and let him know you’re rich, and he’ll get back to you by this weekend.

He explains that his calling as a “movement person” has been supporting broad-based movements that embody a “Christ-like ethos and leads to Christ-like action for the good of the world.” But he leaves out the part where he denies the substitutionary atonement of the cross and what Christ did to fully pardon our sins.

What I’m looking for is a team of partners to join me in a generous and strategic impulse.

If you believe in the kinds of things I write, say, and do, and would like to join me in making a significant financial investment over the next three years – to help a broad-based, diverse, and deep Christian movement rise to the next level, I am hoping we can come together in a joint project.

You might be able to give in the four, five, six, or seven figures. Or you might know a person, foundation, or other donor who can. Or you might be willing to start giving a smaller amount on a regular basis for the long term.

    How does this work, where's Jesus, and why is this so secretive. As far as I know you have gambling debts or a girlfriend that needs lodging. Don't get mad at me, you're the one with secrets and asking for my money.. Should the Body of Christ supply a unknown work that may or may not be a work of God? There's NO secrets in the commission of Gods purpose to preach the Gospel. Those that are considering a donation to this unknown thing, needs to pause and think a moment. If this is not of God you've joined yourself/support to something God may not want thus striving against HIM and not for HIM. Secrets belong to the world and their private lodges…

    And with seemingly no accountability or openess, no doubt, he'll also line up his own pocket…

  5. The Ten-Trillionaire Televangelist
    By Robert Winkler Burke
    Book #4 of In That Day Teachings
    4/26/2009 http://www.inthatdayteachings.com

    When he drew a boundary for Sea,
    posted a sign that said no trespassing,
    (The Message Proverbs 8:29)

    One day a televangelist appeared on the scene,
    He was handsome, charismatic, lean, not mean.

    He said, Hello World! Give me your tithes!
    He broadcast a wild show, it was quite a ride.

    To one hundred-forty nations his show was sent,
    From one hundred-forty nations came tithes’ ten percent.

    At that time the world’s income was one hundred trillion,
    And, by golly, he received ten-thousand billion!

    Ten-thousand billion was his wonderful income,
    Which was ten trillion, give or take a million.

    As he had more cash than any known government,
    Ambassadors from the US and China were sent.

    Please help us, oh televangelist, they asked of him,
    Would you buy us an aircraft carrier, or moon landing?

    Our nations are broke, said ambassadors of the world,
    Build us a freeway, or school, or tractor for field!

    All the world’s excess cash has gone to you,
    What, oh great man of God, with it will you do?

    The world was quiet that day, waiting to hear,
    What the richest man of God would say sincere.

    But he said, Sorry to inform you, oh ambassadors,
    I spent it all on myself, and perfume for my whores.

    Did you think I’m not subject to the maxim,
    Power corrupts: It did with my tithe taxing!

    Don’t blame me for wasting all the world’s wealth,
    To stop waste, oh world, keep your money yourself!

    But honestly and quite frankly, since the world is so cotton-picking gullible,
    I’ve decided to now become the world’s first quadrillion evangelist lovable!

    But the government said, Well then, since you’ve given us the ax,
    We declare that you’re a business, not church, and owe us great tax!

    But the televangelist took off for new planets in his private starship rocket,
    Proving no one could stop this televangelist on Earth from lining his pocket.
