Solve Your Financial Problems: Give to Pat Robertson

| 7/3/2008 12:19:45 PM

Financial difficulties plagued Jonathan and Lauren Holtzclaw, until they started giving money to Pat Robertson’s talk show, the 700 Club, according to the Pat Robertson-founded Christian Broadcasting Network. Once they starting donating money to their church, and $480 per year to the 700 Club, the financial difficulties of the Holtzclaws disappeared. 

This kind of “prosperity gospel” provides the cornerstone to Pat Robertson’s financial empire, investigative reporter Bill Sizemore writes for the Virginia Quarterly Review. Sizemore’s exhaustive history of Robertson, the Christian Broadcasting Network, and the 700 Club, provides a frightening picture of apocalyptic theology mixing with political ambitions and mountains of cash.
