Nope ...<quoted text>
And the answer is:
Jesus saw him first, after the Greeks came to Philip.
"Cults are not new. There have always been inspiring, charismatic, guru-like leaders who have been able to persuade devoted bands of followers that they have the answer to the big question: the meaning of life."
Ė Jean Ritchie, The Secret World of Cults.
All that is required to be Christian huckster
A towering ego, an insatiable appetite for adoration and applause, a rampant libido, and above all, an eye on the big money, mark out the "charismatic" personality well-suited to the business of religion.
All that is needed is oratorical skill, unbridled ambition and a leg-up from a "name" already in the business if selling Jesus.
Many have trod the path. The roll-call of dishonour speaks volumes. Hiding behind their Bibles and clerical collars are a bunch of crooks and hucksters, womanising egotists and dangerous megalomaniacs.
But they love you!
