Description

The Tulsa World does "an in-depth look at an organization called Saint Matthew's Churches, formerly Church By Mail and St. Matthew's Publishing, which sends 1 million letters per month to recipients across the country. The company uses demographic data to target poor people and grossed $26 million in 1999. It is headed by a reclusive Beverly Hills resident, the Rev. James Eugene Ewing, who is credited with being the father of the seed-faith gospel. Documents show Ewing lives an opulent lifestyle, has neglected to pay his taxes in the past and has battled with the IRS over his non-profit status. The "church" has no actual address, only a P.O. Box in Tulsa."
