Personally, I like Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer and Perry Stone. My wife likes Jesse Duplantis, Benny Hinn and Creflo Dollar. Who are your favorites?

Hey Mike!

Thanks for your opinion I'm truly sorry that you feel this way. But don't you feel that classing them ALL together in the group "false prophets" is just a little unfair and judgemental? unsure.gif

I really don't watch Televangelists, but when I'm flipping through the channels and stumble upon Dr. Fredrick Price or Dr. D. James Kennedy I will stop and listen to what they have to say. They "teach" more than "preach".

I don't think we can lump them all together, but I think a lot of them are more out for the money that to actually to the Lord's work. Oral Robert's is my example. He built a university and named it after himself. Then, he said the Lord came to him and said if he didn't raise a million dollars for his ministry he'd "bring him home". I couldn't believe people bought that! Isn't "going home" what all us Christians strive for? Why would God himself speak to Roberts and threaten him for not raising enough money? I know I shouldn't be judgemental, but I hate when supposed ministers of God defraud their people and build monuments to themselves. All in the name of God.

I understand why Mike has this opinion and having been close to a number of them I have to agree with him.

On the other hand I agree with WO as I have met a few that give the rest of them a good name.

KJV"When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. "

What I have seen is televangelists bragging about their high percentage of accurate prophesy and by Biblical definition any percentage less than 100 makes them a false prophet (i.e. the Oral Roberts thing)

I haven't watched any of them. But flipping stations I have seen some who I think might be worthy of their time on TV.

However, like Mike, just the word televangelist has such a negative conotation. Maybe it's because I live in the shadow of Rex Humbart's tower he built to himself next to his cathedral. The locals have a colorful name for it I won't share here.

The good ones would do well to insist they be referred to as preachers, not televangelists.

Have we gotten off your topic wizard? I am glad there are some good ones on TV, especially for those who cannot get out to go to church.

Good point Elspeth

I actually run sound for a local Church that is televised every week. It is not tele-evangelism and for the most part the teaching is very good. It is their outreach to people who are not able to go to Church or are searching spiritually. They don't pressure the TV audience for money on any level.

Plus the people there are really nice too.

Peace

Mikel

The only Televangelists that I like and respect is Dr. Billy Graham, but he is more an Evangelist than a Televangelist. He doesn't pander for money, and he shoots straight from the hip and keeps it simple and to the point---"Preaches only the Gospel." Whether you agree with his theology or not you will have to agree that his character and reputation are honorable and spottless. His track record spans the 20th century and into the 21st Century.

Well, I like only one maybe two.

Kenneth Copeland and Creflo Dollar. I usually do not watch any but if I happen on either of these I will watch em. I like someone who will teach not preach. I got burned out on watching them when they ask for all that money. Would not God provide for their ministry??

Which ones I like? Actually none. Well, Billy Graham is cool. I put him on a par with Mother Teresa.
Although I am a Believer with about 25 years under my belt being a Christian, I can take only so much preaching... walkman.gif

Televangelist go against everything I believe in. I watched my parents send all their money to them. So much that I had to walk around in shoes with holes in the sole because they had no money left to take care of their kids (us). But by golly, they sent so much money to Jim Bakker, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, and DR Dobson, Richard Roberts, and the purple haired lady with caked on make-up from TBN so they could get a special gold leaf bible.



This is a really sore spot for me.

Yep, Raven Wing, you certianly hit the nail on the head. No person is a messenger of God if they are encouraging people to send them money so that they can live high off the hog while those they claim to be shepherding let their children go in want.

The funny thing is, I have no problem with someone benefitting from the hard work of others, I just have a problem with people neglecting theor responsibilities.
