Faith with profits

Faith with profits

Like a thief in the night he cleverly employed contractors who couldn’t afford legal fights. By Gavin Foster

Celebrity televangelists and faith healers by their own account rely heavily on frequent one-on-one consultations with Jesus Christ. One can but hope the good Lord helps South African Faith Like Potatoes evangelist Angus Buchan educate his right-hand man, Bruce Winship, on the Christian values of honesty, trust and compassion.

Winship has been described at various times as a pastor, Buchan’s media spokesman and a key part of the organising team of the Mighty Men Conference. He is also a trustee of Buchan’s Shalom Ministries, but in his other life he’s a very successful businessman who for 22 years has been CEO of a family-owned Durban construction enterprise, Grid Group, which has been responsible for some of KwaZulu-Natal’s most ambitious developments. Apart from his work with Buchan’s ministry, Winship strives to ensure his spot in heaven by helping his wife, Gayle, run her Keep the Dream Foundation that raises funds for school bags and books for orphans and underprivileged children in rural KwaZulu-Natal.

Perhaps Winship should join the Church Of The 7 Commandments - he then won't have a problem entering the Pearly Gates

Really? I don't somehow think Jesus would approve. It's Winship's own greed that's the driving force here - something against which Jesus specifically warned.

Just another "Lying for Jesus" crook.
