TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY JOSEPH KRAUSS US pastor John Hagee speaks during a visit with Evangelical Christians to Ariel Israeli settlement in the occupied Palestinian territory on April 3, 2008. Evangelical Christians may feel they have been left out in the cold by US election fever, with none of the three remaining candidates generating the excitement of President George W. Bush's successful 2004 run. But in Ariel they received an enthusiastic welcome, not only because of the millions of dollars they have given the settlement, but because of pastor Hagee's firm opposition to giving anything to the Palestinians.

In 1974, ‘’Like a Cleansing Fire’’ was released, then Hagee established the Church at Castle Hills in 1975, which started off with a small number of members, but in the span of two years gained more than 1,600 new ones, and grew throughout the following decade and had more than 5,000 members in 1987, when Hagee renamed it to the Cornerstone Church. It is reported that the church has over 20,000 members as of today.

John’s family is involved in the business as well. His son Matt, wife Diana and daughter-in-law, Kendal are pastors in the church as well as John himself. Hagee returned to writing in 1996, when ‘’The Beginning of the End’’ was released, received positive reviews and took a position on the New York Times Best Seller List in addition to being the number one in 1996 in the Association for Christian Retail non-fiction division. Following that success, John wrote ‘’Day of Deception’’ and ‘’Final Dawn Over Jerusalem’’ released in 1997 and 1998 respectively, both becoming New York Times bestsellers, adding to his net worth.
