I hear people enjoy religion where they get to play God and decide for themselves what is truly right or wrong, so maybe toss in something about being your own god and they’ll bite?
Hubby and I often joke about opening a church called “The Church of God and Stuff” and tell everyone that as long as they believe in God (in whatever form they choose to believe), they can decide what else they can believe and they’ll be justified/supported by our church. It’s tempting; just IMAGINE how many people would flock to us! We’d be RICH!
I’d suggest 1-2 years traveling in India, Nepal & Tibet, then come back and publish your writings as your own scripture. Set up shop in Hollywood and convert the stars. If you can pretend to have special powers, it will help. As I recall that TM guy could levitate, (or bounce if you’re a skeptic). Ohh, open a bank account for donations
If you are insistent on forming a Christian based denomination, take the protestant route and just start a television program and build your mega church.
