Ministers get plastic credit

Published April 1, 1998

A credit card company, a bank and a missionary organization in Argentina are launching a credit card for ministers and missionaries. Visa, Argentina’s Mercantile Bank and the Manantial Missionary Cooperative have agreed to establish the “Visa-Manantial” card for pastors and Protestant workers who often cannot get a credit card because they cannot prove their level of income. “There are people who say this is from the devil,” said Erin Carneri, Pentecostal missionary and member of the cooperative’s administration council. “This is not true. If Christ preached today he would have a helicopter and a credit card, because he would have to preach more quickly. Christians must adapt to modern times.”
