Photo Description: From hyper-successful salesman of pots and pans to ardent Christian motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar has made quite a journey. He's sold a billion fafillion books and motivationally spoke across the country and around the world.
He seemed like an upbeat, congenial fellow. Plenty of jokes peppered his lecture. But, ah, the Internets tell all:
" Ziglar’s second revelation came in 1972 while floating in his trademark arrow-shaped swimming pool of his suburban Dallas home. Reflecting on his recent experience of being born again in Tullahoma, Tennessee, he said to himself, 'Lord, I know you put this whole big universe together, and I know that someday you’re going to take it down.'
"Then, after a shooting star passed his gaze, Ziglar heard the following from the heavens above: 'That’s right boy, and don’t you ever forget it.'
Oh my. But...
"This would not be God’s only direct contact with Ziglar: later Ziglar would hear The Creator interrupt his telephone call to tell him that if Ziglar 'would leave it up to [Him, He] would take care of [the] little things for [Ziglar].'"
Is there more?
"The best selling See You at the Top warns that 'our creator decreed that the man is the head of the household' while Confessions of a Happy Christian admonishes that “[i]n Rome and Greece and all of the other eighty-eight civilizations that fell, homosexuality was the final straw."
All right, then. But his jokes are so funny!
