On Monday, Pat Robertson encouraged poor families to give him “$20 a month,” but today he warned viewers against "scamsters in religious garb quoting the Bible" (video below).
Robertson gave the warning after a 700 Club report about the Profitable Sunrise pyramid scheme that lured people in with bible scriptures, reports RightWingWatch.org.
“Beware of these scamsters, especially scamsters in religious garb quoting the Bible,” Robertson said, without a hint of irony in his voice. “I mean, run from them. They’re all over the place.”
During Monday's broadcast, CBN aired a segment about a couple who continued to donate money to Robertson even after declaring bankruptcy and selling their house.
“They were faithful,” Robertson said. “Listen, there is no way you can out give God. You can’t do it. And that which is given to him will come back 30, 60 and 100 fold. We encourage you to join the 700 Club… It’s just $20 a month. And if all of us do it together, it gets to be millions and millions and millions of dollars!"
