When people make a living off of desperate people and offer fake promises of "returns" (ie: miracles) for "seed faith offerings" not to mention false prophecies (ones that DON'T come to pass) I Guarantee you that Jesus would have words for these people!

In fact - if Jesus was on CD His honest posts (to these people) would probably have to be deleted as violations of terms of service.

Bad fruit and lies are EASY to judge.

Hi Jazzymom,
(It's a video, not just a picture.)
Please don't misunderstand what I wrote. My point is that there are fundamentalist Holy Ghost preachers supporting the violence in the Middle East.

So whoever says evil cannot be in the presence of good is wrong.
Job 1:6-- Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

As Firstborn888 posted earlier, just add "in the name of Jesus" at the end of whatever you want to preach, and people will take it as "thus saith the Lord."

We need DISCERNMENT, folks. Jesus said, "LOVE your enemies," not "kill your enemies."

What I'm saying is that Christendom is SUPPORTING THE VIOLENCE, and this is especially in fundamentalist groups. (Partly because they believe a war in the middle east is necessary for Jesus to return, so for them, if they can get the fire stoked, all the better!)

Blessings to all,
brian

mmmm...wonder if he can "blow away" our oil leak problem?
I've always seen him as a crook.

I smile when i think that when jan crouch was diagnosed with cancer she didn't give her good buddy, Benny, Faith Healer Extraordinaire a call. Instead she went galloping to Cedar-Sinai like her cotton-candy wig was on fire. Was Benny the Jet miffed at the slight, or did he comment, "Jan showed a lot of common sense going to Cedar-Sinai because she knows what the others do not--that when I whack people with my white jacket all that really happens is their frozen shoulder gets knocked loose." Hey, that's a miracle cure, isn't it?

Poor people ... What a fiasco! everyone deserves to go to hell ... Except for me and everyone who believes the way I do ...

That little girl is so badly brainwashed, and that is sad. Because she seems to be pretty smart otherwise.

I lived in that town for a few months on business ... Neat town, but obviously there are crazy religious people on the prowl threatening people with everlasting torture for smoking weed! God help us ...

Reminds me of the crazy people from Westboro baptist church in Kansas that carry signs that say "God hates ****" to the funerals of soldiers who died at war.


Romans 2:24
As it is written: "God's name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."

Here is what I know about Benny Hinn: we have 4 pages of posting and very little of it is about Jesus and what he said. So, something about Hinn makes us want to talk about him, not God. To me, that is not a good sign. When people talk about Mother Theresa they tend to talk about her work, not her as a person. To me, that is a sign of someone not interested in creating a cult of personality, but rather in getting down and dirty and getting to work.

Benny Hinn did more than just build a cult of personality. He is a very successful businessman with a $10,000,000+ manse on the Pacific Coast, and reports an income of over $1,000,000 per year to the IRS.

Mother Teresa took a vow of poverty.
