My first ever "jake" (look for the definition here
) was against a Jesus-freak marketing guru named Mike Enlow
. Much hilarity was had with one of his staffers.
Here's what I said:

This was the response I got:
Mike Enlow is not Jesus

Mike Enlow is a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is NOT Jesus Christ.
Mike's desire is for folks to know God through faith in the grace God has
revealed through Jesus Christ. That's the gospel he believes and teaches.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ--and a good friend of Mike Enlow's. He has
been a business mentor--but I am not his (Mike's) follower.
If you would like to know more about the gospel, please let me know.

And I've looked up the guy today. Apparently he's retired, but still a nutbag and still spewing nutty garbage on Twitter ( @mikeenlow ) and on his website.
