Perhaps the most viral pastor in the United State is Mike Todd from Transformation Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2020, he published a bestselling book, Relationship Goals based on a viral sermon series he did years prior. Todd’s knack for taking years old jokes and repackaging them paid off will Relationship Goals. In a more recent example, he gave a sermon series titled “FU” which obviously stands for Forgiveness University.
Evangelical Dark Web exposed Todd as a Prosperity Gospel preacher prior to his book release. It is the most read article of all time on this site. As anticipated in the original article the Kevin Hart of Joel Osteens would only gain prominence. On Instagram film producer DeVon Franklin announced that he with Amazon Studios would be producing Todd’s book Relationship Goals into a movie.
Amazon is intent on making the concept into a romantic comedy. The precedent set was Think Like A Man, a successful movie, starring Kevin Hart, based on a book by Steve Harvey.
DeVon Franklin has a history of making movies with a heretical premise included from the Heaven Tourism genre. He, along with TD Jakes, was a producer of Heaven Is For Real. Moreover, he is also working on adapting the song “Reckless Love” by Bethel Church and Cory Asbury into a film. The highly polarizing song that is both objectively bad due to repetitive and theologically asinine lyrics looks as though an attempt to recreate the success that I Can Only Imagine had as a hit Christian film.
