Ephren Taylor stepped into the pulpit with the ease of preacher's son,
taking the microphone at the New Birth Baptist Church in Atlanta, where the
powerful pastor Eddie Long was introducing him to the Sunday morning crowd.
"Everything he says is based on the word of God," Long pledged to the
members of his megachurch. But Taylor wasn't a visiting minister. He was a
financial adviser, one who claimed to have made his first million before he
turned 18. And he promised he could do the same for his fellow Christians.
"We're going to show you how to get wealth and use it for the building of
his kingdom," Taylor shouted to the congregation one morning in 2009. It was
all part of what he called his "Building Wealth Tour," which crisscrossed
the country touting his investments and financial advice.
