Glenn, I have all power over satan. For my heritage is the righteousness of Christ and his Kingdom, not satan's who is defeated under my feet. Christian saints do not blaspheme, but sinners blaspheme as you have done. "Out of the mouth the heart speaks. A good person out of the good treasure of the heart brings forward good things: and an evil person out of the evil treasure brings forward evil things. But I say to you, That every idle word, which if a person will speak, they will yield account of it at Judgment day. For by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned."
---Eloy on 8/12/10


If C.B.N., Daystar, Enlace, T.B.N., etc. were mostly doing the Lords work (they're not), they still should be reproved for being profane and greedy. Also, giving a shilling to them is one less coin given to the Gospel. Daniel 5:25, Matthew 16:26, Romans 12:2, 16:18, 1Corinthians 2:14, 2 Corinthians 2:17, 12:17, Philippians 3:19, 4:6, Colossians 3:1-17, 1Thessalonians 4:6, 1Timothy 6:3-10, Titus 1:11, 1Peter 2:11, 1John 2:15-17.

Eloy 8/11: 1John 1:1-10 - liar. "The Lord rebuke thee" *1. Eloy you are "delivered unto Satan, that" you "may learn not to blaspheme" *2.
p.s. I don't know all of Rob's beliefs, but Eloy's criticism of him was unsupportable. 1Corinthians 11:19.
*1 Zechariah 3:2, 2Corinthians 4:2-4, 1Timothy 6:3-5, 2Timothy 4:3-4, Titus 1:10-16, James 3:14-16, 2Peter 2:9-22, Jude 1:4-19.

Markv, your sadness is your own sadness. But after you gat saved your words will be Christian, rather than sadness.
---Eloy on 8/11/10


There are sinners who do not want to give up their sin, and so they lie and say, No one is perfect, when clearly there are evident saints and evident sinners. Sinner, God is not impressed with your blasphemy: sinners will lie and say, No one is perfect, No one is a saint, No one is righteous, and so on, lies on top of lies, and instead of confessing the truth that there are people proven to be perfect and holy and right and innocent, they instead will wrongly say "Not so, for everyone is a sinner like me". O' foolish sinner, repent and get right with God, else you go down to your grave in your proud sin and awaken to your just deserts in eternal wrath and damnation.
---Eloy on 8/11/10




Eloy, what you said is the very thing you do,
"Sinners delights in slinging mud upon God's holy children."

That is what you do to each one of us. You are a sinner, just like everyone. For all come short of the glory of God, even you. And you delight in condemning others who do not agree with your views.
---MarkV. on 8/11/10


Sinners delights in slinging mud upon God's holy children. But let me caution all whom wag the tongue against the saints of the Lord. Says the Almighty: "God is not mocked, He that planted the ear, will he not hear? he that formed the eye, will he not see? Tend to log in your own eye, rather than to the specks in someone else's eye. Instead of foolishly throwing mud at God's holy children, share the good news about Jesus with your words. Repent now, for the Almighty did not make you and bless you for you to persecute his family."
---Eloy on 8/11/10


Rob, I have posted these definitions from the scriptures before:

The Christian is born-again from Christ, and worships Christ only, and obeys Christ's commandments.
There is One Gospel: gennhsh eulogos (gennisi eulogos) which means, "Word-born" or "The Blessed Nativity". The gospel is: Worship and obey Jesus saves the sinuous life. Please Read- Romans 10:13. The One Gospel is The Gospel of Jesus Christ: God became flesh, the man Christ Jesus, and dwelt among us in order to redeem sinuous man in the flesh. "Emmanuel", "God with us".
---Eloy on 8/11/10


Eloy, I do question your teachings, but I have yet to call you a name or say that you are not saved. It is not because I don't want to, but because I do not see your heart, only God can. But you percieve to see my heart and you are but a fallen creature, not yet glorified. When someone says, you are wrong, you call them liars by condemning them. You claim to have been born again twice, and from both regenerations there is still no good fruits from you concerning your brothers and sisters. Then you say they are not of your body, this way you can say what you want to them because you place them outside the body of Christ. I don't believe there is one blogger you have not condemned so far. If you get off the throne, maybe you will learn something.
---MarkV. on 8/10/10


Eloy, om 8/3/10 you wrote that I am speaking against CHRISTIANS, I am speaking against CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, and I am speaking against THE GOSPEL TRUTH.

Twice I have asked you for your definition of what is a CHRISTIAN, and what is THE GOSPEL TRUTH. Why is it you still avoid giving your definition.
---Rob on 8/10/10




I am doing research on the brainwashing tactics preachers use on people.

I was not surprised when I saw TBN many times while doing my research.
---Rob on 8/9/10


Congratulations Eloy as you deserve a place on the unofficial and unauthorized best and worst list, for being the biggest stinking hypocrite of these blogs. When you write your virulent and purulent entries, please type 'to Eloy' as a salutation. Once again, you are not his Prophet, his Pope, channeling God, or even rightly dividing the word. The Demi-god thing that you do where you try to combine Gods voice with your own is plain demonic. James 4:11 doesn't apply as you'd have to be a brother, but Romans 16:17, 1Timothy 6:3-5.
p.s. I don't know MarkV personally, but based on his blogs, I'd guess that he is in fact a Christian.

---Glenn on 8/9/10


MarkV, Until you get saved you will remain lost, that is just the way it is in life. When you are driving on a road without the directions nor a map, you may drive around and around and around, lost: but receive Christ and his direction, then straightway you will find the correct way and the best destination. The free will is given to all to accept Christ and to no longer be lost, but many people misuse their free will and freedom of choice to remain in their darkness, that choice is their own choice which they themself own 100% completely upon themself for their own poor choice. When a person is hard-hearted and stiff-necked, that's their choice: and when a person is soft-hearted and bowing-necked, that also is their choice.
---Eloy on 8/8/10


So sore have our false prophets brought the people out of their wits and have wrapped them in darkness and have rocked them asleep in blindness and ignorancy. -William Tyndale

What do I think of TBN and Daystar behaving like this? "Monks, friars, and to the other of our holy spirituality the belly is all in all and cause of all love. Offer thereto, so art thou father, mother, sister, and brother unto them. Offerest thou not, so know they thee not. They labour not but live idly of the sweat of the poor. There is none so poor a widow, though she have not to find herself and her children nor any money to give: yet shall the friar snatch a cheese or somewhat." -Tyndale
---Kev on 8/8/10


Eloy, you told Bob,
"Bob, a weak web sinners weave. Scripture is very clear: "The person that is of God hears God's words: you all therefore hear not, because you all are not of God."
I read where you said that a lost person can come to Christ with their free will while lost. They can hear the gospel and understand it.
Now you say that the person that is of God hear God's words, and that the others do not hear because they are not of God. Why do you contradict your own words if your word is perfect? I was just wondering how you come to two different conclusions been that your word is Truth.
---MarkV. on 8/7/10


Bob, a weak web sinners weave. Scripture is very clear: "The person that is of God hears God's words: you all therefore hear not, because you all are not of God." I am from God: he that knows God hears me, he that is not of God hears not me. "Then went the prideful ministers, and took counsel how they might entangle him in talk."

Rob, I have not inquired nor researched on whether every broadcast is pre-recorded or live. But if I aired a person live (or even pre-recorded a speaker), and they took liberties to say something wrong or blasphemous, then of course I would apologize to the audience and I would also not allow that particular person to speak again from my TV station platform. That is how we develope good relationships with people, and how we also learn to close the door on users or misusers. For unless two walk together in agreement then there is no fellowship.
---Eloy on 8/7/10


Eloy, so what you are saying is, people will receive salvation and the paradise of heaven if they listen to you. Is that correct? and if they do not, they will receive the lake of fire and brimstone?
---Bob on 8/6/10


I translate the scriptures, and I admit that I am much much much much much much much more dead serious about accuracy than most translators.

Rob, My values do not change. I still hold to the proven track record of the KJV over every new fandangled Bible,............
Eloy on 8/5/10


Which one is it? Do you love only the KJV or do you translate the scriptures? What is your education that you are able to "translate" Greek and Hebrew?
---KarenD on 8/6/10


Eloy, the majority of the programs these two networks are taped for broadcast on certain times and dates.

Do you not think these two networks review programs before brodcasting them?

If these networks do not control the speakers, why is it DAYSTAR refused to broadcast, and cancelled all programs of a certain speaker, because they had the courage to speak fron 2 Peter Chapter Two.

Rob, I already posted, "The Christian stations do not advocate everything a speaker freely says on the station. And many people produce various new Bibles for various reasons, but I personally do not support them." When a station airs a speaker they do not control the speakers free tongue, but the speaker while speaking has freedom to speak whatever they will, and the station is trusting that the speaker will not say anything antiChrist. And as for preachers whom publish their own version of the Scriptures, they do so for specific purposes to help teach the reader. I translate the scriptures, and I admit that I am much much much much much much much more dead serious about accuracy than most translators.
---Eloy on 8/6/10


Cluny, as I said before those whom are antiChrist, antiTruth, and antiWord will hate the words of truth I speak, and they are at enemity against God, and unless they repent they will remain under his wrath and will rightly recieve the lake of fire and brimstone. But those whom are proChrist, proTruth, and proWord will love the words of truth I speak, and they are peace with God, and they wil receive his love and will rightly receive the paradise of heaven.
---Eloy on 8/5/10


Eloy, some people may not like it, but I do agree with you about women not being Pastors or preaching in the pulpit.

I want to ask why you won't answer the rest of my question posted on 8/4/10 concerning what you believe Christianity is, what is the True Gospel, and why these Bibles you speak against are allowed to be sold on these two networks that you support.
---Rob on 8/5/10


\\Eloy you said a mouthful about mud slinging and saying cruel things about the men and women of God\\

What has not yet been definitively established are if the stars of TBN and Daystar are in fact men and women of God.

Asserting they are so does not make them so.

Send a Free Salvation Tract


Rob, you are correct again. I did read where Eloy mentions that all other bibles after 1611 were false bibles and where women should not preach from the pulpit. And here he defends the same people he speaks agains't. What you have to understand is that it has to fit Eloy's standard of what is righteous and what is not righeous. If he says something is righteous, he has to be believed, and when he changes his mind he can change his standard again and call it unrighteous. And all of it is righteous judgment because he says it is. And if you are oppose you are not saved and are dissing him so you are dissing God. This Eloy is not an imposter, he is the same Eloy for years.
---MarkV. on 8/4/10


Rob, My values do not change. I still hold to the proven track record of the KJV over every new fandangled Bible, and as far as women in the pulpit, I maintain my Biblical position, it is a sin. period. And if people want to label me sexist or whatever they choose, that is their free choice, but the truth still remians the truth. The Bible speaks against the weaker vessel as being the leader and explains exactly why, because the first woman led the man into sin and the whole human race has fallen away from God. period. The Christian stations to do advocate everything a speaker freely says on the station. And many people produce various new Bibles for various reasons, but I personally do not support them.
---Eloy on 8/5/10


Lea, the reason people blaspheme is because they are not of our family. There are basically two races in this world, the godly and the ungodly, and you will know them by their fruits, by the things that they say and do prove whom they are, whether they have the Spirit from Christ, or else not. The tree either bears good fruit or rotten fruit, and the tree is known by the fruit that it bears. Does sweet water come from the dead sea and Sodom? does love come from hate? and joy from blasphemies? No, not so, but sweet water comes from the pool of siloam and Shiloh, and love comes from caring, and joy from apples of gold in pictures of silver. Sometimes dissers will become saved, like Paul whom persecuted Christians and later he became a Christian.
---Eloy on 8/5/10


Eloy you said a mouthful about mud slinging and saying cruel things about the men and women of God but on judjment day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Why do those that profess they are Christians spit on others that are in their family? curse them gossip about them?We are all one big family right?

must be due to the fact there is no fear of what God will do them, help us all Lord to be more humble and wise.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 1:7

Eloy, what is your definition of what is a CHRISTIAN, and the GOSPEL TRUTH?

Why is it on a different blog, you spoke out against NEW FANGLED BIBLES published after the 1611 A.D. KING JAMES BIBLE, and women preaching in the pulpit.

Rod Parsley came out with a Bible called the Breakthrough Bible.

Benny Hinn came out a Bible called the Drake Bible.

Frederick K.C. Price came out with a Bible called the EIFM Bible.

THESE BIBLES A SOLD USING THESE TWO NETWORKS.

How about your being against women preaching in the pulpits.

How many times have you seen Paula White, Juanita Bynumn, Darlene Bishop, Joyce Meyer, Marilyn Hickey, Sarah Bowling, along with others on these two networks preaching from a pulpit.
---Rob on 8/4/10


a few of you on here are not church members don't tithe nor give an offering and by this you begrudge anyone that is on TBN asking for you to help .

Luke 15:3-7: 3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me, I have found my lost sheep' 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
---Lea on 8/4/10


Rob, You continue to bear false witness and mud sling the people of God. Again, your blasphemies do not make you righteous nor a part of the family of God, but on the contrary by your dissings you are placing yourself in the nonChristian fold. If you really believe that Jesse and myself and TBN and Daystar are self-righteous rather than Christ-righteous and that we are antiChrists only ministering the gospel to "beg money" as you say, then our house which is built upon the sand would not stand and your words would be sound, but our fruits manifest otherwise. Many have been saved through our ministering, yet how many souls have been saved through your mud slinging? how many?
---Eloy on 8/4/10


Lea, A-men. Not every preacher is everybodies favorite. Some people like loud and shouting preachers, and some people like quiet speaking preachers. Those offended or in the flesh will stop their ears at the message. If Jesus arrived on earth with a purple mohawk and a ring in his nose and riddled with tatoos, I would still follow him, if Jesus arrived on earth with one eye and three hands, I would still follow him, if Jesus would arrive on earth as a woman, I would still follow him, if Jesus would arrive on earth as a grey robed monotoned shaved headed monk, I would still follow him. Why? because Jesus is the Christ, my Redeemer, and has the words of eternal life.

\\Amen Eloy:The reason many so called Christians sit in Judgement on those doing Gods work is they are like the Pharisees,\\

What has not yet been adequately determined is if these networks are actually doing God's work.

I've noticed, Lea, that when challenged to support a statement you make, you simply get angry and accuse me of not being a Christian.
---Cluny on 8/4/10


Amen Eloy:The reason many so called Christians sit in Judgement on those doing Gods work is they are like the Pharisees, and also not filled with the Holy Spirit, Folks you better be very careful of the idle words you speak against Gods Anointed and his Prophets. He is in Control not you, it is our duty to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you have not been filled with Gods power then you are not discerning a persons Spirit all you are doing is spitting in the wind, but God knows everything about us and he does not wink nor turn his head to the evilness of the heart.When you come against another Christian brother or sister and say evil words that judgment will be brought upon you.
---Lea on 8/4/10


Why don't we all just stick to the original question asked, instead, as Christians, of making personal attacks against each other because we are not in agreement!? To answer the blog question: No, I don't think ANYONE should tell YOU what to do with your money, whether they are Christian organizations or secular. USE YOUR HEAD AND BRAIN GOD GAVE YOU. Write these church organizations and tell them you disagree with their tactics. Turn their channel off if you don't agree with their show personalities and programs. Open and read your Bible more instead. You don't need them if you are not in agreement. PERIOD!
---Lin on 8/4/10


Eloy, I am not a self-rightous person like you are. CHRIST is my rightousness and my faith is in him.

Eloy, why do you continue to say these two networks are Christian when it has be proven by others and myself they are not? They only use the name Christian to deceive people who don't know the truth.

Also why do you continue to say the people who appear on these network are preaching the GOSPEL TRUTH, when time and time again they have been exposed and proven to be FALSE TEACHERS/PREACHERS?

Rob, I have to agree with you in judging the TV evangelist. Your not doing it for your glory but for the glory of God. It's true many are led astray because of this very same people. Many of them are teaching false teachings and of course mixed with the truth to make it sound very godly. In return many who believe what this people say, also begin to teach falsely because of what they have learned or seen from them. Two good books I recommend are "Kingdom of the cults" and "Christianity in Crisis two great studies into cults and false teachers to warn true believers of what is taught by many of the evangelist on TV and other religions that surround us each day. Many here answer because of what they have learned from them.
---MarkV. on 8/4/10


Rob, Speaking against Christians and Christian Television stations does not make you righteous, but instead places you into the nonChristian fold. Do you not understand that Christian Television is doing great things in propagating the gospel around the world, to people whom otherwise would never have the opportunity to hear the gospel and be saved? And because some television preachers are "well off", this should not cause you to covet nor misjudge another Christian. Jesse has alot of "bling bling" and he is not shy in saying so, and he also says that it is God who has blessed him in this way, so stop misjudging, for his money has not diminished his preaching the gospel of truth.
---Eloy on 8/3/10

Eloy, I am so thankful to my LORD and SAVIOR, CHRIST JESUS, that I am not a part of your family.

My family consist of those who are part of the TRUE BODY OF CHRIST.

Your family is made up of those who follow FALSE CHRIST, Mathew Chapter Twenty Four.

An example of this is you defend Benny Hinn and his FALSE TEACHINGS.

A few years ago, Benny Hinn said that CHRIST HIMSELF would make a personal appearance on stage with Benny Hinn, at one of Benny Hinn's so called miracle crusades

Eloy, if you believe what you say,
""If a person say, I love God, and hates their brother, that person is a liar: for the one that loves not their brother whom they have seen, how can they love God whom they have not seen"
why is it that you show no love for your brothers? You condemn them without cause. Just because you they do not agree with every detail of what you say, you show no love for any of them. You even go to the point of saying, they are not of your body. Just by those words, you are saying they are not saved. You claim perfection, and give no one any slack at all. Why do you not repent of your sins?

1Corinthians 11:19.
Eloy has been corrected multiple times and by several people, and is rejecting the Lords discipline, Hebrews 12:6-8. He consistently violates *1 and operates in *2. I believe that *3 should be applied to him because of his blasphemies, lack of repentance, and his refusal to receive deliverance from bondage.
*1 Deuteronomy 6:5, Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31, Luke 10:27-28, Romans 13:8-10, 1Thessalonians 5:21-22, 1John 3:16.

Eloy, you are caught up in your own self rightousness. Whenever a person shares the truth, many times you said they "SPEAK FALSEHOOD AND NEED TO BECOME SAVED. You display the characteristics and attributes of BEING A SERVANT OF SATAN.

Consistently in the Bible an inheritance is passed down to the sons, nephews, or as in Genesis 15:2. Doesn't T.B.N. have a considerable slush fund sufficient to run its' "ministry" for a decade? While these ministries could be run more efficiently, their principal problem is a dearth of Godly programming, but good teaching doesn't bring in the cash as well as feeding the fleshly nature. And they manipulate people during their telethons to give. For example, both intentionally use skilled fleece salesmen like John Avanzini and Mike Murdock. Proverbs 22:16, 1Corinthians 10:32-33, 2Corinthians 4:1-5, 6:3, 9:6-13 (:8 "every good work", not bad work(s), Galatians 5:11, Hebrews 4:12.

I do not defend false teachers, I know the teachers I support, whom have personally led others to Christ. How many souls have you personally led to Christ? And how long before you yourself get right with God? I suggest that instead of pointing out the specks in other people, first remove the giant beam from your own eye. You are so occupied with mud-slinging Christian TV and Christian TV preachers that you neglect your own salvation.
---Eloy on 8/2/10


Eloy (the imposter one)....Teaching that these networks are nothing more than money-grubbing shams is not bad-mouthing. It is telling the truth. It is pathetic that so many well-intentioned people fall for these gimmicks that are so far from Biblical truth that they are often laughable. We are to be like Christ. Christ taught HIS disciples to depend upon the Father for their livelihood and not to be con artists.
---KarenD on 8/2/10


Eloy, you call it "bad mouthing" I call it teling the "truth".

These two networks use the name "Christian" but the truth is they are far from it, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15, Revelation 2:2, and 2 Peter Chapter 2.

Eloy, sometimes the truth hurts, Hebrews 4:12. You bad mouth those who have the courage to share God's Truth because you hate the truth. You don't want others to know or abide in God's Truth.

This is why you support and defend those people who time and time again have been exposed and proven to be FALSE TEACHERS.
---Rob on 8/2/10


Rob, I believe you are correct. With the exception of maybe a very few teachers, the rest are all false teachers. Most of what they say are words made up to make their teaching sound godly. But if one studies what they say, most of it is false. They take advantage of older citizens and people that know very little of the Bible. And they donate all of their savings. Ol Roberts started with the 1,000 dollar seed. Plant a seed it was called. On a "60" minutes show one of Roberts plants in the audience spoke about how what Roberts showed performing was all a lie. Robert Tilton cried on tv about his house that got on fire, people kept sending money. He never said he had two homes, and the only the drapes had burned.

Rob, I do not care what people assume about me. First you wrongly bad-mouthed these Christian broadcasting networks for "begging money", which is false, for they raise funds to pay for their broadcasting called "praise-a-thons". Next you wrongly bad-mouthed Jesse because he jokes in his preaching. Let me suggest this to you, if you find his preaching offensive and you do not like the man, nor TBN or Daystar, then turn the channel. But bad-mouthing the Christian networks because they hold "praise-a-thons" to raise funds for their broadcasting is not a good thing. I would venture to guess that you have never contributed one cent to Christian television, but instead you watch them and bash them all the same.
---Eloy on 8/1/10


Does anyone besides myself become disgusted with how these two networks are venues for those who prey on people who are lacking in knowledge of God's Truths, and con people out of their hard earned money.

They tell people if they want to receive a BLESSING FROM GOD, they must sow a seed (send their money). But these FALSE TEACHERS will never, ever share what is written in Mark 4:13-20, or Acts 8:20.

These FALSE TEACHERS claim to be sharing the GOSPEL but what they are sharing is not THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, Galatians 1:6-10.

Rob, Jesse is known to use effective humor in his preaching, that is not a sin. And if you isolate a piece of his preaching from it's context you can easily contort what he says into something that he did not say. Sinners do this all the time with the Bible, taking snippets and pieces of scripture to try to support sin and false doctrine.

Eloy, I had a feeling TBN would show a repeat of Jesse Duplantis, which they did.

After watching it again, Jesse Duplantis did say what he said. He also said many other things including using some RACIAL SLURS and VULGAR LANGUAGE. I will not repeat some of the things he said. The people in the studio laughed and clapped their hands.

I thought there is suppose to be a difference between those who are in CHRIST and those who are in the world.

Here is some food for thought:

1) Jesus fed 5,000 people and it didn't cost him a dime. He had no money on him to go to the grocery store and buy those loaves and fishes, so where did they come from? God, right? And did God send Jesus a bill? NO.

2) You don't need money, you need God's POWER in your life - that's what the carnal-minded man is not getting.

Granted you need money to get on TV, but God can have his own TV station if He wanted it. Instead He chooses to use human to human contact like when he waited in the HOT sun for the Woman at the Well...He knew what she was, but he wanted her in His Kingdom anyway!!! Amen and Amen!!!

Rob, A Praise-A-Thon is not as you wrongly say, "begging for money", just as selling tickets to an event or ballgame is not "begging people for money". The purpose of a praise-a-thon is to raise money from the viewers who watch TBN in order to support TBNs continued daily television broadcasting to the viewers to watch. Also, I am sure that you took pieces of what Jesse Duplantis said out of context, and you have not given the whole message of what he said.

Tonite, Jesse Duplantis was the speaker for TBN's Praise-A-Thon (begging for money)

Here are just a couple of the OUTRAGOUS THINGS Jesse Duplantis said.

"JESUS KNEW THAT JUDAS WAS STEALING MONEY FROM THE MONEY BAG, BUT JESUS DID NOT SAY ANYTHING. IF YOU KNOW A PREACHER IS STEALING MONEY, DON'T YOU SAY ANYTHING EITHER".

"$200 MILLION IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY FOR ME. IT IS NOT MY FAULT THAT I HAVE MONEY, IT IS GODS FAULT".

These two networks represent those who are mentioned in Matthew 21:13 and 2 Peter 2:3.

You never hear them tell people they need to study God's Word. They tell people they need to purchase their CD's, DVD's, books, and other products.

Also very few of them teach/preach from an open Bible in the true context which it is written. They will take one verse of scripture and do what is written in Romans 1:25 and Colossians 2:8.

I hope people are being led by the Spirit if they decide to do this.

Some people give out of emotion, some give out of fear and that's because they don't KNOW God. They think if they don't give, something bad will happen to them - this is a lie from the pit of hell.

For me, since I don't have family members to leave my estate to, I might consider giving it to the POOREST ministry I can find or a NEEDY ministry, but not TBD nor Daystay. Just my opinion.

If people want to sign up for annuities through Daystar or TBN, then they should check out their annuity program and see if that is what they want to do. People can personally invest their money into any company they choose to. But the wise investor will research what type of annuity they are investing into before they actually do so. I persoanlly have not checked out their annuity programs so I cannot give a complete judgment on whether their annuiities are good or not so good. As for changing a person's will in order to bequeath their inheritance to promote future Christian broadcasting, that also is a person's individual free choice to do so.

I am thankful I was able to visit the Holy Land Experience Theme Park before it was aquired by TBN.

I remember one year during their so called "SHARE-A-THON," Daystar had Juanita Bynumn as a guest. She told people she did not care if they had to close their bank accounts, if they had to sell their homes, or if they took food out of their childrens mouths, they had better send their money.

These two networks are venues for those who are cons. They claim to be sharing the GOSPEL, but what they are sharing is not the GOSPEL OF CHRIST JESUS, Galatians 1:6-10.

I am longing for the day when what is written in Romans 1:32 will come to pass.

People need to remember what is written in 2 Timothy 3:1-9.

Very good concerning the Didache, a late 1st or early/mid 2nd century Christian Catechism. If anyone is interested: "Let every apostle who comes to you be received as the Lord. But he shall not remain more than one day, or two days, if there's a need. But if he remains three days, he is a false prophet. And when the apostle goes away, let him take nothing but bread until he lodges. If he asks for money, he is a false prophet" (Chapter 11).

And who takes TBN/The Word Network, and all their prophets seriously anyway? Have you guys every heard of the "Master Prophet"? He is the black belt of all the prophets....LOL!

I see that they seem to live by the Biblical (?!!) precept:

God helps those who "help themselves".

I think the practice of anyone leaving all their "riches" to Charities instead of their own children/family is despicable. I think those asking for that money are thieves,including the Christian ones,urging people to leave their assets to their charity not family is pure larceny. The Bible says the children ought not lay up store for the parents but the parents for the children 2 Corinthians 12:14. The Christian organizations/networks who ask for people to leave their money/etc to them,not family,are not only theives but they are not even going by the Word of God they are suspose to be bringing and needing the money to continue. No don't get taken in,its wrong.

cluny, I'm impressed. Not many people have even heard of Didache much less read him. Great quote from him.

They're false then. No one should add any program in their will unless they own it & giving it to their children to run...just money hungry people. I pay 1 bill to t.v. & that's our cable bill.that's all who I owe outside of my congregational tithing.
---candice on 7/19/10


People, even the elderly, are free to do whatever they wish with their money.

However, the Didache makes a very good point. If a wandering prophet asks for money or similar donation for himself, he's a false prophet.

Think about it.
