Preaching Prosperity: Financial Missionaries Teach Spending

People in Florida have been holding gathering in churches on Sunday. While that's nothing new, the topic of conversation — money — is. Preacher Kevin Cross (appropriate name) travels to spiritual centers to discuss biblical principles of money management. He thinks finances can be managed in a way that glorifies God, while also keeping believers out of debt.

Cross advizes parishioners to make big changes like returning expensive cars to the dealerships, or getting rid of credit cards altogether. The basic message: God wants you to live within your means.

The all-day sermons involve some rituals, too. Participants cook their credit cards over hot plates or melt them in a toaster oven. Where does it mention that in the Bible?
