When a televangelist says he needs more donations because God told him he should have a new jet, are you inclined to think he’s tone deaf/unaware of how bad that sounds, or a crook?

I’m inclined to think he accurately stated his profession, when he wrote down “televangelist”.

I think he’s the kind of people Jesus would’ve driven out of the temple

Thanks so much, TQ! That means so much to me! Can you tell me what the question is? I’m taking it that it might be about Joel Osteen, but I can’t find a new poll about him. Thanks!

Okie1967 Asked about that greedy televangelist that wants his followers to get them and extravagant jet. If he was clueless or greedy. I cannot quote directly. Memory you know. I said he was the kind of person that Jesus would’ve driven out of the temple. However you were the kind of person that Jesus would’ve honored.

Thanks so much, TQ! I can look it up, now that I know whose poll it is!

And again, thanks so much for the compliment. That means the world to me!

I can’t remember his name, but he said that if Jesus were here today, He wouldn’t be riding on a donkey, but would be jetting around too. He wants a $53 million jet.

Icamino, if he thinks that he definitely does NOT have a personal relationship with Jesus, and hasn’t even read the Bible. Jesus was ALL about being a servant. SMH

I totally agree Tops and 4JC. This man is not Christ-like at all. He doesn’t know Jesus, and his humility. Jesus came to serve, he wouldn’t be jetting around.

I might offend someone by saying this, but let’s be honest, when did I start caring about offending people on SOH. The prosperity gospel is heresy.

Sermon 1: God wants you to be happy.
Sermon 2: Money makes you happy.
Sermon 3: Preachers are chosen by God to deliver the gospel.
Sermon 4: I deserve nice things because Sermon 3.
Sermon 5: We need more money to conduct a rock star music concert every service.
Sermon 6: Do you have money to spare for me?
Sermon 7: Do you remember the person that I healed?

Now, the elders inform the Church that the “preacher” is taking a sabbatical to meet with Joel Osteen, TD Jake, and Steven Furtick.

Show me the money!! Osteen and his designer clad wife are the biggest fakes of all. Remember they didn’t even want to use their church to take in the storm victims last year?

I agree 100%, Political. In fact, we just had this same convo—about the dangers of Health & Wealth Gospel—with the owner of a mattress store two days ago! LOL We went in to look at mattresses and ended up having a Discipleship Training class! LOL

These evangelists are false prophets that lead people astray and the worst part (to me) is that they lead those that aren’t Christians to think that ALL ministers and their families are millionaires and live like this and cheat little old ladies out of their money (I’ve had several people here on SOH tell me this, and accuse my hubby of doing this).

All the world worships power. They all want to be on the right side of the powerful. This A Hole is not deceiving anyone. He is only providing the propaganda that effectively lets people fool themselves into their blessed poverty.

I think I might have more respect for clowns, than I do these televangelists. But then I wonder, what’s wrong with people blindly funding such a ridiculous request?? It doesn’t seem a whole lot different than a street beggar.

As a Christian, I'll say that anyone who buys into this crap is insane, and also, this fool does not represent the rest of us.✌

The only ones dumber than these followers are the ones who believe the preachers who set a date for when the Savior is returning.

You know what I mean. It would be worse if he said he needed donations to help starving orphans in Africa and instead used the money to replace the solid gold faucets in the guest bathroom in his third beach house.

I find it to be amazing that people fall for these crooks. We have a guy here in Oklahoma City that has a helicopter he uses to go from campus-to-campus where he preaches to different congregations.
