Finally, the “secret” to fortune and success (well, this author gives 7, the perfect number!, Secrets of Success). This legalism should really help the bottom line of many believers and unbelievers alike.
If you follow these secrets (i.e., Laws!!!!!) you can be rich and successful just like Arthur S. DeMoss, the billionaire philanthropist, and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power of Positive Thinking, with whom this author worked 18 years.
Here is a little snippet from the ad:
In Pray and Be Rich, Dr. Richard Gaylord Briley reveals a startling Biblical truth that has great implications for your life:
One person, committed to a goal, is all God needs to change the world.
He’s done it many times. And if history turns many more pages, He’ll surely do it again. At the very least, you and God together can change your world.
The new audio program — Pray and Be Rich — is about one person — YOU — (Yes, this is the one thing this ad gets right because it is not about God! -J.F.) and the success plans that God has for all who believe, pray and act on the message of the Bible.
To start, to get the most from this sensational audio program and find daring faith to act upon your God-given potential for success, you must already believe that:
The Bible is more than humanity’s oldest book of living wisdom — though it is at least that.
Life has meaning and purpose.
Your life has a special purpose, even if that purpose and a plan to achieve it are not yet clear to you.
Just another reason why it is critical for the Evangelical church to recover the gospel and to reject such false gospels as exemplified in this book!
