Will OJ Simpson be the Next Famous Prosperity Preacher?
The Christian Post recently reported that OJ Simpson, who is still in jail, is laying the groundwork for a new ministry once he is released. While he is not up for parole until 2017, Simpson hopes to be released early, perhaps before the end of this year, due to his appeal of his conviction. Plans for a ministry entitled “Holy Safari” are apparently reasonably well advanced and Simpson is said to be modeling his ministry after that of prosperity preacher Fred Price who apparently claims 15 million viewers. Skeptics claim Simpson is in it for the money, but time will tell just what approach Simpson takes once/if he is released. We sincerely hope Simpson has experienced a true conversion and seeks to uplift Jesus and a true gospel rather than the perversion of the gospel prosperity theology has become.
