In his overseas publicity, amongst some of the numerous titles employed, Leo Schreven likes to be known as ‘The Energiser Bunny’ and ‘Master Zenith Trainer.’
Don’t ask me what a ‘Master Zenith Trainer’ is either?
Schreven has dropped both those titles for his New Zealand Tour and resorted to the Hollywood style “ Exciting teachers of life mastery” instead.
Nor does Schreven want the New Zealand public to outwardly know he’s a bible-banging, vehemently anti-Sunday worshipping, evangelical, and author of the worlds most corniest book-title ‘Rich God Poor God’.
The New Zealand public are being told simply that you can ‘Master Your Life in One Weekend’, ' Turn fear and failure into your friends' and ‘Find physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and financial success in a principle based motivation seminar’ etc.
These personal development seminars, coming to a Kiwi town near you, are being marketed by a company called ‘All Power Seminars.’ – not to be confused with ‘Free Go All Power’, ‘Goal Power’, ‘All Power Columbus’, ‘Master Vision Connections’ , ‘All Power Kids’ or ‘All Power Thinking’ which also happen to be part of Schreven’s empire.
Back home in Washington, Schreven is up-front advertising the company he heads as ‘All Power Ministries’ – but here in Kiwiland, Leo has conveniently dropped the God stuff from his front-line publicity – in order not to scare away the natives.
What would further scare the South Pacific natives back into the bush, would be a quick read of Schreven’s 1994 book "Now That’s Clear!" , in which he outlines that anyone who worships on a Sunday is in-fact worshiping the Beast and received his mark ($50 says it's 666) - doomed to burn in hells fires, along with your garden-variety atheist.
Yes indeed New Zealand, underneath the mask of being a motivational speaker of international repute, Schreven is a leading ‘end of times’ dooms-day propagator (refer You Tube Video below , go to http://www.goallpower.com/777/ where you’ll need to have your credit-card at the ready, or if you want a giggle, rather than renting ‘Mad Max’ tonight - why not google: ‘2300 Days, Tribulation and Judgment Hour’?)
But a filthy-rich speaker - it has to be said.
A globe-trotting millionaire which according to the public-record, runs many-of the numerous on-line entities he fronts – tax-free.
Big on ‘the end is nigh’, Shreven has toured The U.S Bible-Belt, telling the hicks about the impending dooms-day, and why they should immediately go into the lobby and buy his $49.99 tapes for the car, in-order to saved being burned in next Tuesdays apocalypse.
Revelations about raptures, plagues, Satanic councils running the world also appear at first glance, to be off the subject-matter for his New Zealand Tour – but given his pedigree they can never be far from the surface.
I’m almost tempted to attend one of his gigs and ask him if he does horoscopes as well?
