    So Today I was turning through my television and turned on TBN and I heard some singing and on the bottom of the screen I saw a line that bugged Me which said that a scripture in Deueuronamy says "If you don't give God wont hear your prayers". Full of anger I changed the channel as I know this is not so. The other day I turned there and saw a praise a thon and it was on a whole week with people preaching Malachi 3:10 about tithing. Okay To sum it up I am fed up with TV preachers who call themselves Christians begging us to give especially in sermons and especially saying that the reason your not in Gods favor or you don't get healing is because you don't give. If any normal preacher or pastor were to preach this unsound doctrine we would have him thrown out of a church. I was wondering everyones thoughts on this before this Christian blows

    Why do you even turn to TBN? Most of the "preachers" on there are false teachers. I would just avoid that channel.

    All I know, is God doesn't send beggers of money and I would hate to have to answer that one on judgment day about how I used His Name to gain it.

    A lot of sound ministries ask for money. I think this is the least thing about TBN that is disturbing. What is truly disturbing is their promotion of false teachers, including Oneness teachers.

    Sure, I hope you realize my definition is far from just asking. Telling someone their prayers will not be heard if they don't give to the new jet fund is what I'm talkin bout.

    Maybe I can help DoeroftheWord calm down a bit with this story:

    Several years ago my daughter somehow got on the mailing list of one of those blab-it-and-grab-it groups. One day the phone range and it was the ministry calling to ask for a donation. The caller promised that God would multiply that gift back to her manyfold, and asked for $1,000.

    My daughter said, "you really believe strongly that God will bless me manyfold for my gift?"

    "I really do," said the caller.

    "Well," said my daughter, "I tell you what. Send ME $1,000 and God will bless your ministry manyfold. If I send you a thousand, that's all you get. If you send me the thousand, think how much you'll get back"

    "Uh, well, uh, we can't do that."

    "Okay, I can see you really don't have much faith. Bye."

    TBN is the Christian Comedy channel...

    False preachers!...

    What is sad is that good hearted people love this drivel!

    As they do CBN and Pat Robertson! Another Heretic.

    Um- does the ON/OFF switch work on your TV? What about the channel selector??

    If both work OK, perhaps I might be able to afford you a couple of small suggestio.... :rolleyes:

    I know that I don't. In past years I've seen and heard way too may outlandish things to ever turn there again.

    I watch them sometimes to keep up with the tactics being used by the evil one. Then sometimes I watch them for the same reason most folks watch NASCAR (for the crashes), I want to see it when the lightning strikes.

    It is sad that all who don't listen to these charlatans are not as perceptive as your daughter.

    Actually, there is at least one Bona Fide, true Christian show on TBN:

    Way of The Master, with Ray Comfort, and Kirk Cameron. What's funny about there show, is that they direct you to their website, and their radio program, where they basically call everyone else on TBN heretics. :laugh:

    The Dean of their Evangelism school, actually told us that the owners of TBN told them they don't care what the show preaches, or says, as long as they bring in ratings.

    Yep. And to think that _enny _inn asked people to pay for his private jet!!

    If _enny _inn needed $4 million, then why didn't he just call _ral _oberts and donate $40,000.00?

    Greed. Greed. Greed. Greed. Greed. Greed. Greed. Greed.

    And that's ALL that THAT blab-it-and-grab-it crowd has to offer.

    Post #15 should have read:

    It is sad that all who listen to these charlatans are not as perceptive as your daughter. Don't should not have been included.
