When I look at all the television channels we now get, over 50 on our
cable compared to 3 we had before cable, I wonder why we waste so much
money on filth and trash. Out of all these channels we have 4 news
channels, 2 shopping channels, a golf channel, 3 MTV channels, a home
improvement channel and 2 "Religious" channels. Quite a few other
stations that I call absolutely worthless. I am sure that there are
folks who can not seem to live without these stations and a person can
respect their preferences, but they aint fur me! I can not find
anything shown on them that I consider entertaining.
The most wasteful stations I have found are the two reigning
"religious" stations that we currently receive on our cable service.
TBN and INSP. Before you drag me to Pontius Pilate and scream like the
High Priest of the day. Before you begin to build a cross on your own
self righteous Golgotha's Hill, hear me out.
I consider myself a Christian and minister of the word for over
15 years. The reason I totally believe in the scriptures from
the book of Genesis to Revelations. Without question!
My beef with the "religious" stations are very simple. If the majority
of ministers that stand in front of the camera day after day, twisting
the Word of God around to make saps believe that Heaven is in
recession and God needs money to help pay mortgage cost. Wait, maybe
God financed Heaven with Lehman Brothers. That would explain a lot and
I would not have to write any further. But any nut job knows that God
(well those who believe in God), created Heaven and owes no one
nothing on its construction. But these fruitcake satanic liars sure
want you to believe that God is in desperate need for cash. Now, who
gets the cash? Anyone ever write a cheek or "sow a seed" with "Pay to
the order of GOD" written on it? The ministers get it. NOW I AM SURE
that THERE ARE GOOD AND DECENT GOD FEARING MINISTERS, who ACTUALLY DO
the work of God with programs on these stations!!! But very few.
It appears that every time I come across these stations, some idiot is
trying their very best to find scriptures that they use to make you
think that the reason your shoes don't fit right anymore is that you
have not been sending money to God.
I apologize for calling them idiots. I really do. They are very
intelligent. They manage to live the life of prosperity without
financial worry simply because they have found a way to manipulate the
Jo Schmoes into sending them every dollar that they make. Simply by
making him believe that God is sad and Heaven is in danger of
foreclosure because they been hording up all of Gods money.
Today (10/25/2008) I ran across another nut job. Today I listened to
Morris Cerrillo tell me and other TV listeners that, "If I began to
pay or sow a seed of $240, God would double my anointing. WOW!!! God
is running a special today only,,,for a small price I can get me a "10
fold anointing", as Cerrillo called it, for the amazingly low price of
$240. I actually got ill at my stomach.
On another of INSP's shows is one called "Financial Solutions with Dr.
Todd Coontz". I have previewed this dude as well. Standing there with
his fine tailored suit that God knows I could never afford. Super fine
watch and rings on his arm and hands. The whole premise of this show
is to let you, the listener know that, God will make your life so much
better if you send him money.
And ole Mike Murdock, I can not begin to tell you how many times I
have surfed past that channel and seen him in the pink tie. Either he
really likes that tie or he has a ton of em. All I have ever heard
from this man is how you need to make a cash donation to God and HIS
work. 2 days ago, Murdock or God was running a "God-Mart Blue Light
Special". Apparently, Murdock found 55 specific blessings in the Bible
that can be yours for the amazingly low price of $55.(Void where
prohibited, taxed or restricted). Now he was certain to let you know
that the 55 specific blessings were all that he had found in the Bible
and that you may be able to find more or a few less. It apparently
depended on the reader. Why just 55 blessings? Probably because he
needed a bunch of idiots to send him $55 and he needed a safety net or
bait to be a fisher of men.
Now please do not hate me too much. I know I mentioned these three
gentleman and not others. In truth, TBN was the front runner for the
God-Mart scam and still is. It is rare that you hear anything about
the true gospel of Jesus Christ on any of the stations. I remarked
once to my wife that the letters "TBN" stood for "Trinitys Bunch of
Nuts". Not to even go near the Tammy Faye clone with the pink hair and
Bonnie Lou and Buster dress.That, bless her heart, when she cries, she
looks as bad as Jack Nicholson did in "Batman".
All you hear anymore are ways they have found for you to become rich
and famous. Successful and prosperous. Drive fine cars, fly around in
airplanes.Live in grand homes and have someone else pay for em Like!
Oh-My-Goood! Jesse Duplantis has made many televised sermons on how
God wanted him to have a much bigger, better and faster jet to run the
skies in. Guess who foots the bill for all this extravagant living?
Wish God talked to me like he does Brother Duplantis. No, wait, no I
The totally amazing thing about all of it is,the people fall head over
hills for the these scam artist's. I guess David Hannum, P.T.Barnums
competitor, said it best.."There's a sucker born every minute".
These folks should change their names to "God-Mart. Always the lowest
price on blessings, always". I have seen so many, one in particular,
Paula White, "preaching" one day, talking about the "season for
change", Your true Harvest", and so many other catch phrases. While
she babbled on, the marquee at the bottom of the screen continuously
flashed,"Release the seed in your hand so God will release the
blessing from his", "Sow today for your blessing tomorrow", "The
biggest seed you sow will determine the biggest blessing God will
release". As her ministry brags about earning over 10 million dollars
a year. Did God give her that money of idiots who believed her? You
Even Perry Stone adds his wish list in there with Manna Fest. Letting
everyone know about all the Old Testament feast offerings that had to
be made. And he is right. All those offerings he talks about WERE a
requirement by God for the Hebrew people to atone for their sins But
he fails to mention that the Old Covenant was done away with when
Christ was crucified and rose the third day. The many different feast
and ceremonial offerings were made complete with Christ and are no
longer required. But they need you to believe that they are still a
requirement so THEY can get rich from your stupidity
Do we rob God? According to Malachi Chapter 4, we do. But how? It is
written in Psalms Chapter 50 verses 9-12,"I will take no bullock out
of thine house, nor he goats out of thy folds. For every beast of the
forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the
fowls of the mountains; and the wild beast of the field are mine. If I
were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is mine and the
God said that the world was already his and he did not need you to
feed him. They do not preach these things do they?
Even in Matthew 22, Jesus ask, concerning paying tribute to
Caesar ,"Who is this image and superscription? They say unto
him,Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar
the things which are Caesars and unto God the things that are Gods."
The money I have in my pocket is not Gods. He never made it. BUT he
DID BLESS me with money. Because money is needed to live in this
world. I can use that money to help further ministries such as
missionary work. Helping the needy and such as that. But God does not
need money to make things happen, what is needed there is called
If God wants me to have a extremely fine home and extravagant car and
lifestyle, why did Jesus preach against it?
In Matthew 19, verse 21, Jesus replied to a wealthy man when ask what
he must do to enter heaven,"If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that
thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven;and come and follow me."
Again he said in Matthew Chapter 6, verses 19-21,"Lay not up for
yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves break through and steal; But lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure
is, there will your heart be also." So where are your treasures? Who
is right? The Televangelist who tell you God wants you to be rich or
the Son of God who warns against being rich? If you want to be
prosperous, turn back to Deuteronomy Chapter 28 and read. It tells
quickly how to be rich, blessed and prosperous.
Now if you decide that I do not know what I am talking about. And your
preacher is so wonderfully correct. How many folks have been saved in
your church over the last week? Month? Six months? Past year? How
about baptisms? Any?
And if you said,"Hmm Ole Rob does not know anything about the Word of
God, all he has quoted has been from one book, Matthew." My reply to
you is this, I used the Book of Matthew as a quick reference. Does not
take all day to find the point and make it, or, it is like Geico, So
easy a caveman can do it.
We rob God, indeed. But consider the fruits of the spirit written in
Galatians Chapter 5. "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law."
What has been the best that God has given to you? Salvation? Peace?
Joy? Happiness? Contentment? Have you invested those things in others?
Sow a seed that really matters. Show others what God has given you,
not the things of this world.
Preachers, return to the WORD. Stop trying to convert your ministry
and church to follow after the idiots from television. Go back to the
Book of Ezekiel, namely Chapters 33 and 34 and double read. Bunch of
"Self righteous. holier than thous" gonna have to stand before God one
day and take account. Then your money will not help you. Cause on that
day, God will not be accepting anymore tax exempt donations.
Christianity is being made a mockery by these people. The kingdom of
God suffers because of it. The sons of man die by the thousands each
and every day because those who call themselves "Ministers of the
Gospel of Jesus Christ" are more worried about making a buck than
snatching a soul from the pits of Hell. SHAME AND DISGRACE ON YOU
Preach the blood of Christ. The sacrifice that was made for the
redemption of all mankind. Whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved. Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. I welcome
Hope ya still like me a little after this. Contrary to popular belief,
you DO NOT HAVE to love me! But as John wrote in 1John Chapter 4
verse20, "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a
liar; for he that loveth not his bother whom he hath seen, how can he
love God whom he hath not seen?".
