lol I didn't notice he was promising immortality but not eternal happiness....need to read the fine print better.

I would say your assessment of self-help guru's and preachers is dead on. I also think that isn't the way it should be. I am a Christian of the reformation variety. I think its the pastor's job to tell you about an event in history(for Christianity this would be the crucifixion of a Jew name Jesus and his missing corpse three days later) and what that event means about your eternal soul. This information could make your life better, it could make it a lot crappier, as long as its true the preacher shouldn't care.

In my mind its the preachers job to tell you about how to succeed in the next life and the self-help gurus job to tell you how to succeed in this one. I personally don't believe those two things have anything to do with one another so it is a peeve of mine when the two professions sound alike.
