Matthew 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

T.V. Evangelists have done more to harm the cause of Christ than the devil has.
---Me on 5/13/08

One Good thing that the T.V preachers have done,
They have brought about the Word of God being preached to Every Nation.
I believe this has been accomplished thru T.V & Radio & Now the I-Net too.

Is there ANY Nation Left in the World that has'nt HEARD of Jesus, One way or the other?
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 5/13/08

in reality God and jesus are the messengers,we are to bring their message to the world,and the holy spirit does the my answer would be we deliver his message.God does all the work.

Eloy, how did you do the wingdings? What was it you typed between the < > and the < / > Whatever it was I assume would be the same when changing to any other font.
---RitaH on 4/5/08

Steveng ... Eloy seemed to me to be trying to help.
---alan_of_UK on 3/25/08

Eloy: What does the Bible say about showing off? You do the same with your worldly knowledge.
---Steveng on 3/24/08

...and I surely wouldn't use such negative icons as a bomb and the scull and crossbones. Pride and setting a poor example surely indicates that you are a new Christian or a weak one.
---Steveng on 3/24/08

Well ... I've learnt a lot too. I wonder how long I will remember it all!
---alan_of_UK on 3/24/08

Thank you for your input Steveng and RitaH...I really appreciate you taking the time out to answer my request. God bless!
---Holly4jc on 3/22/08

And thank you too Eloy! Wow...I feel like I've hit the jackpot with all these new things I can do. :-)
---Holly4jc on 3/22/08

For colors you type inside the less than and greater than tag: font color=
and after the equals sign you type the name of the color. For ex: font color=blue. Then you write your text that you want colored, and after the text you would close the tag: font. Some colors are: blue red green purple navy lime fuchsia
---Eloy on 3/22/08

For some moving text, the tag is marquee. You type this opening tag (marquee, between the less than and greater than signs, then wite your text that you want to scroll. Then put closing marquee tag after your text. Like this...
---Eloy on 3/22/08

You can also make wingdings. Like this: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U Y " & ( + : Y
---Eloy on 3/22/08

You can also write different text, like this:
Jesus is coming soon! Or,
Jesus is coming soon!
---Eloy on 3/22/08

Holly4jc: To change the attributes of words and phrases are nothing but simple html codes. You can find all of them on the internet.

I suggest not using them for many people don't like it and most may not read your post. But if you do, use them sparingly.

There are other things you can do also. For italics put < i > < /i > either side of your word and for underline use < u > < /u >. If you want big size text put this < big > < /big > or small if you prefer.
---RitaH on 3/21/08

To use colour I think this is what you do. < font color=blue >......< /font > but you have to remove all the spaces except the one between 'font' and 'color'. Just checking it works. Yes it does.
---RitaH on 3/21/08

To make moving words you need to type the word marquee between the <> and the Now I'll check that also. Hope this works. Yes it does. Now you can all have lots of fun.
---RitaH on 3/21/08

Thanks so very much Alan of UK...if anyone else out there can tell me how to operate the "color" function, I would truly appreciate it!

Hi Holly, Gordon, Rob, and anyone else who wants to know how to create bold ... Here goes
Type the following
< b > bold < / b >
But without any spaces between the symbols and letters
The < b > (without spaces) goes before the words you want in bold, and then < / b > closes down the bold.
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/08

Hi Holly, Gordon, Rob, and anyone else ...
To create italics do exactly the same, but use an "i" instead of the "b".

It's possible to make colours and moving words, but I don't know what commands to put between the < >
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/08

Do you choose to receive a "strong delusion"?(doctrines of the heart"Ezekiel 14:4-8 KJV correctly translates the word "according") if you choose not to love the OBJECTIVE truth (2 Thess. 2:10).

Don't let ANYONE mislead you. The Lord wants a PERSONAL relationship with what YOU believe.

There are many more preachers today who simply want to make money (ESPECIALLY on TV). Those who are on TV have alot of VERY expensive bills to pay (NO MATTER HOW WELL MEANING, if at all). They suck the life out of their congregations (not just mislead you). There is really nothing truly good that can truly be said about them.
---greg on 3/20/08

Your devotion/relation must be "in my inmost SELF" (Romans 7:22). "I am who I am" wants a PERSONAL relationship WITH YOU, not just for you to have that PERSONal relationship with Him (develop your CONSCIENCE that it may be purified (Hebrews 9:14). "Walk by the SPIRIT", not by mere faith (Galatians 5:16 and 25). Become the "friend" of God (like Abraham) and no longer fear Him (1 John 4:18, Isaiah 29:13).
---greg on 3/20/08

TBN is the reason many people have jobs. Yes, church is preaching the word but pastors can't live on 10 people having a picnic in the woods. No one is going to hear that either so what is the point. TBN supports so many wonderful ministries. Mega churches do not (should not) have one pastor. They have many pastors and many ministries and missions and etc: you know what they have to trade to make that possible? Money. Educate yourself don't judge them. God has that job.
---Corrie on 3/20/08

I don't see any difference between TBN and DAYSTAR.

The Bible teaches us that SATAN is very subtle. I wonder how many people have noticed DAYSTAR NO LONGER CALLS THEMSELVE A CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK?

If TBN and DAYSTAR had a competion who could deceive and con people out of their money, who do you think would win?

Alan of UK...I don't know how to use the features on the computer that allow for bold, italics, colors, etc. Can you please give me a brief outline of how to do that? Many times I've wanted to use it, but didn't know how.
Thanks! :-)
---Holly4jc on 3/20/08

Using bold or italics is more effective than UPPER CASE
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/08

Gordon is right though.
Wheather he's shouting or not,
You can't tell sometimes in this "Type"
of forum!
Sorry for the funny, Could'nt help myself...
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 3/20/08

operator...You are right about one thing. Those televangelists are "hard workers" and that must be why they need those million dollar mansions so they can rest from their "hard work" of fleecing the flock.

Gordon ... Can you please stop SHOUTING so much?
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/08

Operator, When I read your response, I roared with laughter.
---catherine on 3/20/08

Truly, this site is becoming a site for judging others amen..I am so insulted with how some here judge so unfairly about others and not think of themselves .. it is better to go and do God's work instead of judging those who are..they are hard workers dont you so judge yet sit back and do nothing..Lord have mercy

TBN is nothing but heresy! These big mega church preachers DO NOT preach the word of God. The enmesh "some" Word in their self-help sermons, but rarely is it about the saving GRACE of Jesus or the Cross or His resurection. THESE ARE THE END TIME CHURCHES THAT THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF IN REVELATION....RUN FROM THESE WOLVES!
---WordSeeker on 3/19/08

We judge outwardly but God judges the heart. All of our opinions are merely what we think and really don't make a difference. God knows, all we do is guess.
The Apostle Paul was happy that the Gospel was preached for whatever reason by whomever. Some were even making money off it. We should be the same. If 500 people come to the Lord and the guy is selling water then bless God people are getting saved. I don't agree with the selling, but isn't the saved soul more important?
---john on 3/19/08

These televangelists who have mega churches are con men who are after your money. They preach the prosperity gospel that sowing seed will get you a 30, 60, 100 fold return on your money. Sowing seed means sowing the WORD into people's hearts. The bible speaks about these wolves in sheep's clothing!
---WordSeeker on 3/18/08

Christians should wonder how a Christian is caught in the TV evangelical web. A TVE(vangelist) is nothing more than a colored shadow on a TV screen having a two dimentional personality. Christians are attracted by their TV charm, personality or smile. In their congregation, you are nothing but another face in the crowd. If you met them in in the street, if it were possible, they would be just another human. They are not the same in person as they are on TV.

Besides, it's been proven from various studies (personal development and salesmanship) that looks and personality rate number one and two (respectively) a lot more than the message.
---Steveng on 3/18/08

Most are false witnesses. I hear them pervert the gospel to rob the naive sheep, they will wrest the scriptures and say "plant your seed" meaning "send your money" into their ministry. That is straight from the pit of hell, the seed in the Bible has nothing to do with money, nothing at all: for the Word is the seed, and NOT mammon! I tell you truly, if these dead branches refuse to repent, these false blasphemers will pay dearly for their lies and leading people away from the truth.
---Eloy on 3/18/08

any organization including the church is like a multi level business where the pastor or the tele evangelist is the CEO. if there are 1000 people in the congr multiply by $5 that is $5000/week $20,000/month. how much if it is more than 1000 people. CHA-CHING
---mikehow on 3/18/08

There are only 3 pastors on my TV that I will listen to. They don't have a huge church or audience. Two sit behind a desk and the other one stands in front of a black board. I've never yet heard them preach about money. They teach the Bible, thats all.

Most are lost. Never been bought by the Blood of Jesus Christ. So, you tell me.
---catherine on 3/18/08

There is very few that are truly called by God to preach on TV. Most of the preachers on TV are money hungry. Don't care what your income is or how often you get it, just as long as you send in $100. or more they're fine. If you refuse to send in any money they act like your the most horrible person in the world. If you can watch on the channel TBN, it should be coming up it is called the "Spring-a-thon" Which they will nickel and dime a person to death.
---Rebecca_D on 3/17/08

Maybe..I'll let you know if I see one! However I don't usually watch TV preachers.

If the TV preacher is selling ANYTHING it is to build up their own kingdom and not the Kingdom of God. The gospel is not to be sold. It is free!
---Susie on 3/17/08

"It is a very ill wind that doesn't blow somebody good" your question can be answered affirmatively in both directions. Many of them are making "merchandise" of the people yet God can use them to lead others to Christ.
It is not the correctness or the elegance of the deliver up the message. NO! It is the Holy Spirit using the message delivered. I encourage you to try soulwinning, it won't bite you!!!!1
---Mina on 3/17/08

"Kingdom Building for themselves" is surely a contradiction in terms?
But I suspect a number are only pretending to Kingdom Build.
The same appliers to pastors in other types of church ... some are only in it for the job, or the status it gives.
And politicians too are often in it only for that they get out of it. Their actions show they do not really beleive the policies they promote
---alan_of_UK on 3/17/08

Some are, some aren't.

If they are preaching holy prosperity and about how God will bless you if you send them money, they probably are not.
