    You need to tell more than this cliffhanger you have left us with!

    As of January 1, 2021:
    How much is the Word of God worth?


    1. Kenneth Copeland: $760 Million
    *(Already lays claim to being the 1st
    Billionaire Evangelical/Christian Pastor)
    2. Bishop TD Jakes: $150 Million
    3. David Oyedepo: $150 Million
    4. Pat Robertson: $100 Million
    5. Jesse Duplantis: $50 Million
    6. Benny Hinn: $42 Million
    7. Joel Osteen: $40 Million
    8. Creflo Dollar: $27 Million
    *(IMO: Best name for a
    Televangelist. EVER!)
    9. Rick Warren: $25 Million
    10. Joyce Meyer: $25 Million


    I do believe I might’ve missed my calling…


    Bob
    Ok Bob, now you are speaking my language. Years ago I walked in to the bathroom and my wife was listening to an evangelist on the radio and he seemed interesting so I asked her what his name was....she replied "Oh hunny, his name is Creflo Dollar." That was the last time she ever played Creflo Dollar in my house. I could go on and on with other "true" first hand stories but I would not want to offend anyone so I wont. I just tell people there are all types of predators everywhere.

    BTW, if anyone ever wished to give to a charity and didn't know where please pm me, because I know an orphanage in Uganda that needs help and the pastor there doesn't make that kind of money.

    Re: If you could start all over, what would your occupation be?

    An accounting/finance professor or a detailer. Either one of these would have been rewarding to me. I am a UPS driver now and the only rewarding thing to me here is a paycheck and the benefits, which I am not complaining. UPS just doesn't give me this "feel good" feeling when it is 130 degrees in the back of my truck and I can't find a package that the loader either put on the wrong shelf or another truck, or I get a write up because I finished my route today 40 minutes slower than some computer says that I should have finished...which again I am not complaining. Waxing cars sounds so much more fun.

    That must be why it seems like my UPS driver always tries to hit 60 before he gets to the end of my driveway.

    That is so funny. I know it may not be funny to you at that moment and I do believe we drivers should be more cognizant of our speed, but for most of us we get in a zone and if we don’t see kids playing then we haul butt. Over the years i have been reported on and stopped and cursed out a few times due to my speeding. All I can say at the time is I am sorry, but when we on average go out with almost 200 delivery stops a day we have very little time to catch our breath. Now, after 23 years I am probably the most “slowest” driver there is. I’ve had sups ride with me and want to write me up because I’m driving under the speed limit. Go figure.

    Formula 1 driver.

    I spent over 30 years as an airport ops mgr/director at 3 different airports and have no regrets but would be driving and detailing better vehicles as a retired F1 driver.

    Or maybe...golf pro.
