    I feel sorry for the flock & TV viewers who have to take their preachers words as legit & accurate, only because they think their pastors position makes them more qualified & educated.
    Surely they are being misslead by hacks who butcher the Bible and interps, because these people are just winging it and throwing dung against the wall to see what sticks and what garbage the people will buy.
    Many times they will try and get deep only to talk around subjects using broad stroke generic terms that never go anywhere, solve anything, or say anything in actual terms, sort of like how politicians speak or sports show hosts trying to expand time with nothing to say. Of course thatcs when they arenct constantly asking for money, and of course it's God's request not theirs. Even when they claim it's to run the broadcast, they need the added airtime so they can expand their intake and use that expanded intake to expand their reach for even greater hauls. I wonder if TBN charges them for their on-air time, they surely act as if they do. I feel sorry for anyone who's parents or grandparents are hooked on the scam and have never had access to historical information that proves this scam is the same worn out Bel harvest scam the ancients used to pull and have never ceased allowing to exist.
    Shame on society for allowing these scams to take place for ages, including allowing your own flesh and blood to be the literal guppies the fishers of men hooked using the fear of God as bait and a dying man god needing their seed money to missionary to even more of the shill.

    Anything done in search of profit in american society is acceptable; that is the prevailing american value. You must of course however do this through channels. This is why it is legal to steal and oppress via legislation, the pen and the briefcase, and the economic and legal systems which are presided over by the substantial people. Theft via picking pockets, snatching purses and stick up however would be too democratic and available to the masses. For example, it only became illegal for members of congress to engage in insider trading based on knowledge they had from sitting on committees/etc in 2012.

    HaS,
    If you know the Bible and pray for discernment, no one has to take anyone's words as legit or accurate. You'll know for a fact if they are accurate and legit.
    Your time may be better spent, sweeping your own front porch...
