A truly GREED- Centered Internet Business

I was on the Crosswalk Directory site making sure Bethany’s sites were listed correctly (there were not, of course) when this ad caught my eye:

A truly CHRIST- Centered Internet Business

Since I work for a truly Christ centered business I was curious to know what else was out there (knowing I would be disappointed).

I was (unfortunately) not suprised to find that the advertised service had nothing to do with Christ or Christ-centeredness.

It’s a get rich quick scheme.

Here’s just the start of a very long and heavy marketing pitch that doesn’t mention Christ, Jesus, the Church or even anything remotely close to a kingdom mindset, except that it’s “ethical.”

The Pitch
(Click to view)

Last time I checked…

  • Jesus Christ told the rich young ruler to sell his possessions
  • Jesus Christ overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple
  • Jesus Christ said “the last shall be first”
  • Jesus Christ “blessed are the meek for they shall in hereit the kingdom of God”
  • Jesus Christ told us to store up treasures in Heaven, not here on Earth

The gall of this guy, Tim Darnell, is amazing. I hate to say it but he gives me the creeps. I can’t imagine what he is like in person. The adjectives, meek and mild do not come to mind.

    Yeah I got my own get Rich Quick System, If you ocnsider $25 – $250 Rich, and I”m a Christian, and it makes me money to use for Bible college,

    it works like this,
    Ing Bank is giving me $10 for each person I get to test drive their new online savings acount (by depositing in $1 or more), up to 25 people, and they pay YOU $25 for signing up and you can do the same. so I”ve already made $25 + 110 (11 people) and they each made at least $25 , and there is no risk, no fees ever and a killer 3.15% interest,

    How very unfair to judge, unless you know the details…I too was a sceptic until I talked to the people in the corporation, who know how to make and use the money that they make for the glory of the Lord. Everyone must do some type of work for their money. These people are providing a product for the public….Please be kind and know what it is that you say…….In respect Diane

  • Nick Says:

    Diane- I don’t think it’s unfair to judge. I read the entire, multi screen sales pitch that the ad linked to. It didn’t mention anything ‘Christ centered’ once. All it did was talk about the gobs of money you’d make. How is that not greed centered? If the sales pitch is all about money, how am I supposed to believe the program isn’t?

    You claim you’ve talked to the people behind this, well, I’d love to see some proof that this is a Christ centered business. I’d love to be proven wrong.

  • Dennis Says:

    Just because the Advantage Conference business ad does not mention the word Christ in it, does not mean that it is not a Christ centered co. Who are you to judge the nature of this business when you know nothing about it? You have no clue how once in the business, there is regular pray and worship, how all the training is based on scripture, how we read the bible together regularly and what our goal of giving back to God’s Kingdom is what we are all about. You have no idea how we will impact the world. How dare you be so self-righteous? Do you feel Christ would have acted like this? Shame on you. Try praying for discernment and not throwing stones, when you know nothing about this business.

    1″Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
    3″Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

  • Nick Says:

    Fair enough Dennis,

    Please tell me more about them. I certainly found nothing on the web site about any product sold (besides the conference itself). It sure looks like a pyramid scheme to me.

    I’ve been recieving the email newsletter from Tim for a few months now, and nothing has convinced me this is not simply a wolf in sheeps clothing.

    So convince me. Tell me what this does, how it advances the kindogm and how it’s not a get rich quick scheme that preys on peoples greed?

    I eagerly await your response.

    Dennis… you didn’t use a valid email address so I can’t reply to you directly. What’s up with that?
