BS wanders freely throughout all aspects of American life, and the church is no exception. The 'prosperity' preachers are selling expired lottery tickets.

Lol! Dr. Gene Scott?!
During his live fundraising broadcasts, he would stare into the camera and order viewers to "Get on the telephone!", successfully raising $1 million a month.[4]

God's Angry Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
God's Angry Man is a 1980 documentary film about Gene Scott, directed by Werner Herzog. The film was produced for television.

....The footage from Scott's television program focuses almost exclusively on his fundraising efforts and an elaborate rant against the FCC. Scott at one point refuses to speak until his viewers pledge an additional $600. After a minute's silence, he yells angrily at the camera until a production assistant informs him that they had already received $700. Scott represents the FCC on his show by a cymbal-banging monkey toy.
