Former child evangelist tells all



A child evangelist who turned ex-Christian as he reached adulthood explains and shows how people are easily duped and deceived by religious charlatans. This YouTube video was prepared by a Christian who, apparently, is pointing out errors in one version of Christianity in favor, I suppose, of his own particular version. Regardless, the bald admissions by the ex-Christian concerning his former occupation are interesting.

More on his childhood "ministry":

There are some other good videos on youtube about Marjoe. The name was put together from 'Mary' and 'Joseph' apparently.

Notice how the Christian who compiled the video stuck in some bible verses in at the end, as if to show how Jesus specially prophesised about people like Marjoe.

Not a difficult prophecy to make though, was it?

Actually, the New Testament writers were simply describing the charlatans that they no doubt saw all around them at the time of writing.

It takes one to know one.

It's funny how easily we can believe things just because we hear it from someone we feel we can trust. We can easily convince ourselves that it's real, with no real evidence. Take for example this April Fool's joke:

Noted British astronomer Patrick Moore announced on the radio in 1976 that at 9:47 am, a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event, in which Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, would cause a gravitational alignment that would reduce the Earth’s gravity. Moore told listeners that if they jumped in the air at the exact moment of the planetary alignment, they would experience a floating sensation. Hundreds of people called in to report feeling the sensation.

I actually had convinced myself that the Book of Mormon was true through a series of "signs from God" that I myself made happen. The truth was, my dad had told me it was true, and respected my dad so much that I couldn't bare the thought that he was wrong.

This is so scary. I use to want to be one of these guys....like the ones we have today: Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Jerry Savell, Jesse Duplantis, Paula White, Juanita Bynam, and on and on and on.

Too bad there really isn't a hell.
