I’m all about being a “love Kat“. I give freely of myself, just not for free. and, I’m more comfortable around people that always know precisely how and where I stand.
…wait… are you asking yourself, “what the hell is a love Kat?” well… read the following, then go look for additional posts:
in any event, I have a history of lighting-up Christians that think they deserve to walk in the light of some Ministry or another.
many peoples views, and also attitudes towards, for, and about Ministries, need to be another “Burning Platform”.
Here are some examples of that:
pillaging ministries for Prophet - well, that elicited a call from a local mega-church Pastor and an inquiry from the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
from whence our Inspiration? – okay… wow… that post raised not a few eye brows. it also shook things up rather nicely around these parts.
yup, I love a nice twist on words; word-play, if you will – the entrendre (go look it up. do it!).
this is all about me being the Heterodox. go look that up as well. it’s all over this blog.
and, one of your all-time favorites with millions of views…
NOTE: the above picture IS NOT Rowdy. I pulled the image from the internet. however it helped launch, from whence our Inspiration into viral sensation, and for good reason. so apropos.
this very morning I answered an email to one of my Brothers, thusly…
“So… Nothing has changed.
What you must be willing to do is look someone in the eye and say to them, “I want to make a living in ministry. But, I can’t seem to generate the business-side of the equation to justify it. So, I need someone to believe that this concept of video testimony is a compelling way to spread the Gospel. If you do then please fuel my efforts financially and shore-up my resolve. God has not made me strong enough to do this myself. I need your help”.
That takes balls, and conviction.
What I know, Todd, is that men want to help one another. But, they have to be willing to ask before other are able to give. Just waiting for everyone else to do it all for you will keep the process shrouded in mystery.
You need to come back under my coaching and stop screwing around with this. We do this on my terms. Or, just go get a job, save up your money, and go into ministry when you can actually afford to do it. I said something similar to Bryan [REDACTED] years ago. He could never talk to me again other than send me letters every now and then asking for money. I still don’t know what he does to earn other people’s largesse… However, I actually believe what you do has merit. You are gifted at helping people tell compelling stories. So, quit being a pussy.

there was then another email (there are three more) from the same hapless fellow that generated this response from me…
“Some time ago, TIME magazine published the results of a survey that asked over a thousand adults about their belief regarding prayer and illness. The survey found that eighty-two percent (82%) of participants believe in the healing power of personal prayer, and seventy-three percent (73%) believe praying for someone else can help cure that person’s illness. When asked about God’s role in healing, seventy-seven percent (77%) said they believe God some times intervenes to cure people who have a serious illness.
While you may not be sick, what you are trying to do is solve a pandemic problem. We need to get people aligned with evangelism and the Great Commission on a modern platform. That makes you potentially part of the solution.
So… How is this need not being amplified and addressed with raised arms and voices? The answer is that, ironically, you have information, ability and skill, but, you are still part of the problem. You do a great and thorough job telling many of us how North Point and other churches are wrong (worse, “crappy”) for not recognizing your genius and opening their coffers up to you. But, they continue to grow and be ever more relevant. Didn’t North Point recently raise millions of dollars recently on a cash-call?
You have lots of creative ideas. But, what would happen if you invested all that energy into genuine action? That might inspire someone to write you a check. What are you doing to earn it?
What are you going to do differently, today?”
all that said… lift me up over ROI Ministry. I’m convinced we can be part of the Solution. I am trying very so hard to be a Love Kat.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
