We are the remnant Church. Not the T.V. Evangelists with their private jets, gated communities, multiple homes, huge salaries and a platform to sell their lies. Here are just a few examples:
Pat Robertson, multimillionaire, prophet, political candidate. A prophet, who truly hears the voice of God is never wrong. How about the tsunami that was to hit California several years ago? Last time I checked, California was still there. Robertson has taught for years that Mormons/LDS were no more than a cult, a tool of satan to take souls. Suddenly, Mitt Romney (Mormon candidate for President in 2008 and so far the most likely Republican candidate in 2012), endorsed by Robertson.
Benny Hinn, multimillionaire, owns several homes in gated communities, has a huge healing ministry, insists the Lord is coming back in his lifetime, but is spending millions to build a 'healing hall of fame', moved his ministry from Orlando to Dallas at an exobtant cost, shouldn't his millions be spent to eveanglize the 'lost'? There has never been a single proven healing in one of his major auditorium events, but they always pass the plate.
Creflo Dollar, multimillionaire, private jets, i actually heard him say these words; "There is a woman, a good woman, she has just enough money to pay the rent this month, but 'the Lord told me', if you send that money to this ministry today, the Lord will return it ten fold" I wonder how many women thought that was for her and sent him her last few hundred dollars? Well, he does have private jets to maintain.
Jesse DuPlantis, megabucks, I actually heard him tell a story that God, the creator of all things, asked Duplantis to 'stay home and keep Him company, because he was having a BAD day. God went to DuPlantis for comfort. AHHH!
Robert Schuller, millionaire many time over and founder of "The Hour of Power" and builder of the Crystal Cathedral has filed bankruptcy for an estimated $55 million owed to vendors and televsions stations that provided airtime on October 18, 2010.
Senate Probe began in 2007 to investigate the lavish lifestyles including, palatial mansions, fleets of Rolls Royces, and countless other expensive items, travel, jewelry, etc all purchased by donations of their loyal followers. The televangalists involved in the ongoing investigation include: Kennth Copeland, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, Randy White and ex-wife evangelist Paula White (Church without walls in Tampa, FL) Randy and Paula White have an interesting story. Randy started the church, but Paula became the T.V. superstar, their marraige couldn't make it.
This is a very short list. A much longer list including famous names show proof of child pornography, homosexual affairs, extra-marital affairs, child sexual abuse, male homosexual encounters, drug abuse, tax evasion beginning in 1991 and ending in 2010 and can be found http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Christian_evangelist_scandals#Eddie_L._Long.2C_2010.
Don't let Wikipedia deter you, each instance is backed up in local and national newspapers, as well as court documents.
These are many of the leaders of the Right Wing Christian Conservative push to take over America and at the same time do away with mainstream Christianity.
Understand this, I am a Christian. But this garbage is not Christianity. They prey on little old ladies, shut-ins on fixed incomes, the poor believing God will make them rich through the teaching of 'The Prosperity Gospel'. The only ones getting wealthy are the crooks on television who are able to bring in millions of dollars from desperate people. Are all Preachers on television like this, absolutely not, just be careful who you send your money to, check them out, ask for their financial information; not one of these people need your $100 as much as you do. Check it out for yourself, the evidence is there, it's up to you to be good stewards of your money.
It's also up to mainstream Christians to stand together and put a stop to this twisted teaching and outright robbery. Look for a soon to be announced not-for-profit Ministry to bring Christianity back to the people it belongs to, stand up, be counted, don't let these crooks ruin what our Lord paid the ultimate price for...US!
