Also, does anyone have anything good to say about Dave Ramsey or does everyone dislike him? I would love to see more positive comments.

Also, I think Charlie is kidding because his comments make no sense, so I wouldn't worry too much about him.

Why dont you come up with a radio show, books, and live show, and charge 1.00 a ticket and see how long you stay in business.
yep a-nother xian business shouldn't we as brothers be helping eachother for free oh no that wouldn't be prophetable, his teachings are of himself and all the latest dopes just follow along like 'we the sheeple'they're paying for their STUPIDITY which may be total heart refusal of not hearing god or god's prophets, not man prophets,all these fools have attended a man's mind moses in the man made temples with a man inspired leader=NO SPIRIT

Hooray for stupid people that need to pay someone to tell them common sense stuff that they should already know.

...must be nice to have something to even work with. I lost my job, now I am a full time
non-traditional college student working 26 hrs a week at minimum wage and supporting my 2 children on this.
It's incredibly difficult, especially with my painful mobility issues. Ramsey tries to make it sound like anyone can do this. Well this is reality, and my debt is overwhelming, along with the stressors of raising two wonderful children on so little money it's a miracle I haven't had a coronary by now. Dave Ramsey isn't the answer, that's for sure. My faith in God is what has kept me going. D.R. is just taking advantage of a lot of people out there. It's just common sense, don't go into debt, and if you must, pay it off early. Get a handle on your spending. Losing a good job is a real eye-opener.

I have a good thing to say: he's a richman who can't give away his earthly knowlege for free, like the freedom he could have had by following christ.

If, you'd have watched him,... you would know
If you'd have paid the $38.00 to see him, you would know that all you have to do, is pay off all of your bill's, and then put a lot of money in the bank, and then you will have money !!!

Well, gee, and duh !!!
I'm glad I did'nt waste 38 dollars!

So many mean, uniformed people out there. Shame on you. You have no idea what or how much Dave gives away. How much do you donate to worthy causes? He has helped many people in financial duress without charging a cent (sorry there are no pennies in our currencty).

Yeah this dude is making so much money off of other people (I bet he was counting his $$ when he got on stage). Looks like the Van Andel was packed.
It only takes COMMOM SENSE. He can't tell you anything you don't already know! If you want to folow him check out his book at the library for FREE!

I am debt free and, unlike Dave Ramsey, didn't have to drive myself into bankruptcy or rip people off while exploiting their Christianity, in order to achieve it! Nor did I have to pay any money to listen to his stupid "program," which is like taking the obvious, packaging it up into a box and wrapping it up in "Christianity" and selling it for $200 or whatever he charges people for this nonsense.

Dave Ramsey is a great salesman. He saw an opportunity to make money and it worked. It's not only common sense that his followers lack, but will power. Those who claim that they can't live frugally without his "system" are weak minded. How on earth do they remember to get dressed in the morning or feed their kids dinner? Do they need a book for that too? I guess if people were dumb enough not to foresee the problems that mountains of debt would cause, they're dumb enough to buy what this snake oil salesman is selling. Not his fault, he's laughing all the way to the bank.

Does anyone know - What WOOD TV's connection to Ramsey is?

Why all the free promotion for several weeks?

Would they do the same thing for an atheist?

I seen him - for a few minutes in a recent interview. Does he say anything different than anyone else? NO.

Did WOOD TV get a cut - of the ticket profits?

What's the real deal?

The Bible warns against people like Dave Ramsey. Beware. He is a heretic.
