Televangelists

So these are a group of guys that have always bugged me. Clearly they are spelled out in scripture in chapters such as Timothy and Titus to be the type of leaders to guard against. If you look into what they are doing any further than the surface you find their motives to be the money that they can make off people who are "lost". These guys are preying on the very people that need the presence of Jesus in their lives. I am hard pressed to find a more disrespectable profession.

Right now I am extremely angered by these types of things that I see on TV. In case you are wondering who set me off it was Peter Popoff. Of course this guy as I found out was proved to be a fraud back in the 80's. But he is still hanging around preaching his so called "prophet of prosperity" messages. He even claims that if you annoint yourself with his Miracle Spring Water that you will get instant prosperity within a week. Ahhhhhhhhhh! It makes me crazy when people use God to swindle people out of their money. I still can not believe what I heard in the few minutes that I watched him.

Anyways I just needed to vent that out a bit. I figured this might be the right place to do it.

Awwww, c'mon, Andrew, you're just ticked because the water didn't work for you after you sent in your "donation."

Hey! Maybe these guys serve a useful purpose? Sort of a flake filter? Or, y'know, like a magnetic oil pan drain plug--collects all the little steel bits in the engine that got broke off cuz they couldn't take the heat?

nah. They are a plague, pure and simple. "Blackest darkness is reserved for them."
